The copings are installed so as to form a paving around a in-ground swimming pool. They must be
perfectly aligned inside the pool. Generally, they protrude a few centimeters (2 to 4
centimeters) above the water surface and are elevated. This helps limit the chop of the waves and
makes it easier for bathers to handle the water. Outside the pool, on the terrace side, the alignment may present
irregularities, depending on the shape and type of copings chosen.

a joint of approximately 1 centimeter. Before being fixed, they must be dusted and moistened underneath
