Designing and producing reinforced formwork which enables the building of made-to-measure concrete pools.
AQUAFEAT belongs to the CEPROTEK group, an industrial group specialising in plastics processing. René Herbert, the founder of the group, came up with the idea of a reinforced formwork, designed for quality concrete pool constructors, after making his own pool in 2001. At the time, he chose the highest quality and long-lasting method available on the market: have your pool built, made-to-measure, in the traditional way using shuttered concrete. This manufacturing method turned out to be large-scale (the panels are put in place with a crane), complicated and expensive. After studying alternative solutions, it became clear – the other processes out there did not enable the construction of high quality concrete.
The solidity and resistance of concrete constructions comes from the integrated pool steel structure
Taking into account the expertise of the group, notably experience in transforming thermoplastics, René Herbert, alongside the design office and different teams within the group, decided to develop an unparalleled, innovative formwork. It is made up of modular polypropylene panels, supported by integrated reinforcements. Designing the formwork this way perfectly conforms to the NF DTU (French Regulations for Standardised Technical Documents) concrete constructions standards. It is 100% made in France, and uses environmentally friendly, recyclable thermoplastics.
Our method is internationally patented. AQUAFEAT formwork remains today the inescapable solution for building environmentally respectful pools, that are made-to-measure in high quality reinforced concrete that is as robust as traditional shuttered concrete, but much faster to install.
AN INDUSTRIAL GROUP SPECIALISING IN TRANSFORMING THERMOPLASTICS
The CEPROTEK group, based in Challans since 1984, specialises in transforming thermoplastics.
The group, made up of 3 companies and 120 collaborators, operates within several levels of the plastics processing sector.
What links these 3 independent structures is expertise in the stages of transformation of thermosplastics, from conception to implementation.
CERO – TOOLS FOR THE THERMOPLASTIC AND COMPOSITE INDUSTRY
Since 1984, CERO designs and creates moulds and tools for manufacturing thermoplastic and composite parts.
PROCESS – PLASTIC INJECTION
Since 1990, PROCESS injects, decorates and assembles the thermoplastic parts and subassemblies.
AQUAFEAT – FORMWORK FOR MADE-TO-MEASURE SWIMMING POOLS
Since 2004, AQUAFEAT manufactures modular polypropylene panels and sells them to swimming pool, landscaping and building professionals, enabling them to build quality concrete in record time.
