TES Support System

TES Support

Performance Thermoplastic Steps utilize the patented
TES Support System for optimum tread support and strength.


  1. Standard Performance Steps are molded from a solid sheet of coextruded Luran® with an ABS substrate from BASF resulting in a strong, one-piece design, that will
    never delaminate, splinter, corrode or puncture.
  2. Raised, non-slip tread pattern allows for safe and easy pool entry and exit.
  3. The high-impact strength and flexibility of weatherable polymers enables Performance Steps to withstand the stress of frost and back fill saturation far
    better than other materials.


Molded Pole Receivers
Unwavering stability and built-in accuracy for secure support; accepts 1.5" and 2" poles for professional versatility.

Patented Adjustable Foot
This new patented feature is designed to expedite leveling during installation.

PVC Faceplate with Durable
Neoprene Gasket The flexible and resilient neoprene gasket comes pre-affixed to the step providing a water-tight seal and bond with the liner and faceplate.

Rigidizing Panel
Rigid-Elastic Technology positioned at the base of the step for structural integrity and torsion resistance.

Rigid-Elastic Technology
Thermoplastic honeycombs (Rigid-Elastic Technology) with composite sandwich construction offer optimum elasticity. This equates to greater impact strength and load tolerance.

Rigidizing Tread Support
Rigid-Elastic Technology positioned underneath every tread for unsurpassed support, structural integrity and impact strength.

Optimum Support
Multiple levels of pole supports work in unison to create unrivaled balance and stability.

Weighted Measuring System
An Industrial weighing system that assures a calibrated, consistent distribution of fiberglass/resin material on each and every step.
