Our individual 330mm x 330mm recycled plastic, interlocking hot tub base panels can be used to create a full foundation or used as an add on to an existing plastic hot tub base to create a base of any size or shape. You may also want a non-slip pathway around your hot tub which you can create with the use of our non-slip rubber tiles that simply slot into our plastic base panels.
What Are The Benefits Of Using A Hot Tub Base?
Manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled polyolefin our plastic bases have been engineered as a lightweight, durable and weatherproof hot tub base system. Environmentally the plastic hot tub base is the best, made in the UK from 100% recycled plastics it is kinder to the environment than other imported competitors and compared to concrete options.
Each panel weighs in at just 0.57kgs each, and just because it is light does not mean it is weak. The round cell design without any straight lines means that it is one of the strongest plastic base panels on the market. Tested unfilled to 420 tonnes load-bearing capacity per square metre, the hot tub base panel is able to support all types and sizes of hot tubs and swim spas. Our bases are actually very easy to install thanks to the specially designed slot and peg system which is paired with its lightweight yet strong frame.
The weather can play a large part in the life of a hot tub base so you shouldn’t have to worry about your base not lasting as long as your hot tub. That is why all of our hot tub bases are resistant to erosion, UV stabilised, able to withstand temperatures in excess of 50 degree C (far hotter than the UK summer) and are fully permeable, meaning any rain or spilled water can drain naturally away from your hot tub reducing the amount of stagnant surface water that could damage your spa.
