When you’re choosing coping to protect your swimming pool shell wall, there are numerous factors to consider with includes equal parts functionality and aesthetics. For instance, are you installing a fibreglasss shell for your pool? What’s your budget? What is the shape of the pool? Will children and elderly be accessing the pool? Luckily, at Armstone we stock a wide range of pool coping tiles, so we have something for everyone, no matter your garden design or budget.
Here are the most important factors to consider.
Pool coping tiles are cut in a variety of profiles. Choosing the right profile for your pool is very important. Not only does it have to suit the shape of the pool, it also needs to be safe. At Armstone, we stock the following pool coping profiles:
Fibreglass pools are an investment, and it’s important to choose the right coping so that they stand the test of time. Below we outline the suitable and non-suitable pool coping profiles.

Choosing pool coping that will blend seamlessly with the pool, patio and the rest of your backyard and garden is an important consideration. If you have a modern backyard design, Mediterranean style pool coping might not suit the aesthetic. On the other hand, it may look great for a traditional or character styled home. Remember to consider the colour palette as well as the general style of your chosen outdoor elements.
As we previously mentioned, choosing pool coping that is heat, slip and salt-resistant is important from a functionality perspective. It’s also important for safety. Why? Well, if you will have family and friends using the pool, you want to ensure that their feet don’t burn, they don’t slip and that have an enjoyable time around the pool. Additionally, consider how much time you have in your lifestyle to maintain the pool coping and surrounds. Some natural stone pool coping requires regular sealing, while porcelain pool coping is much easier to maintain. Consider all your options before making the investment.
