The tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, stands at a mind-blowing 829.8 metres, dominating Dubai’s skyline. The overall construction of this magnificent building took a little over five years to complete. Due to its unique bundled tube design, the building contains half the amount of steel than the Empire State Building does, even though its more than twice its size. Amazingly, the spire itself contains 4000 tonnes of steel.
The design, style and build of the Burj Khalifa along with the stunning location makes the Burj Khalifa one of the most popular buildings in the world. The inspiration we took from this building is the material they used, steel.
Here at Aqua Platinum, we believe that the structure of a pool is one of the most intricate parts of the build and building with stainless steel gives the feeling of pure luxury. Stainless steel is a prestigious product and using it in our projects gives our clients a true feeling of elegance. We take pride in every project ensuring we always use the highest quality products.
Another important factor why we use stainless steel in our swimming pools is known for its corrosion resistance in many environments in which carbon and low alloy tool steels would corrode. The corrosion resistance is a result of a very thin oxide layer on the steel’s surface; this is formed due to there being a presence of chromium in the metal which once in contact with oxygen forms the passive layer on the surface of the material.
