Vinyl Over Steel Steps

Built-In Beauty

Latham’s vinyl over step systems are a beautiful part of the pool structure. The vinyl liner literally covers the entire surface of the pool up to the decking, including the step, for a completely custom finished look. By choosing among a variety of step designs, benches and sunledges in our vinyl over steel or vinyl over open top steel steps, you can create a great place to sit, relax, and cool off.


Modular Steel Steps

We use only the best materials, top-notch engineering, and innovative manufacturing technology to create pool components of outstanding strength and durability. The 14-gauge copper bearing steel steps are coated with a 2.35 ounce zinc galvanization to prevent corrosion and assure a structure that is stable, strong, and durable.

Modular Open Top Steel Steps

Vinyl Over Open Top Steel Steps have an “open top” filled with stone and finished with concrete treads. The vinyl liner is positioned over the filled steel step for a completely uninterruped pattern around the entire pool.

When you choose from our Vinyl Over or Open Top Steel Steps, you can custom create integrated step and benches in a endless variety of styles.

These steps are quick, easy to install, and solid.


Vinyl Over Polymer Steps

Sturdy Elegance... Endless Beauty

The vinyl over polymer steps allow you to extend the beauty of your liner to the entry point for your pool. When you choose a polymer base under the liner for your entry point, you’ll have a sturdy non-corrosive foundation for the life of the pool.

The vinyl liner also provides a soft, smooth texture to walk or sit on and brings a cohesive beauty to your pool. Choose from a wide variety of steps and benches to create your favorite part of the pool.


Modular Vinyl Over Polymer Forms

The Vinyl Over polymer steps are built with a strong polymer foundation utilizing interior braces with a solid polymer top, which is covered entirely with a beautiful Latham liner for a completely custom look.

All vinyl over polymer steps can be used in any of our polymer wall pools or steel wall pools.

Open Top Vinyl Over Polymer Forms
