who we are
Founded in 1993, Tropics North is an international designbuild firm, specializing in the conception, fabrication and installation of water features both indoors and outdoors. Over the past two decades, the company has expanded significantly to include larger installations of commercial pools, spas and most recently, the launch of our award winning Living Walls incorporating the revolutionary modular BioPanel™ system.

Operating out of Toronto, Ontario, Tropics North is run entirely under one roof, collaborating our design team, with the fabrication shops, water testing facilities and showrooms. This company structure ensures a quality product from start to finish. From having a design team that is at the forefront of new innovated ideas, to an experienced fabrication team including an extensive in-house stainless steel shop, Tropics North products combine both intelligent engineering to cutting edge design.

We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with your team finding solutions to your design challenges. Please visit us on-line at www.tropicsnorth.com or call to arrange an appointment to tour our facilities. We look forward to working with you on your next project.

water feature testing
Our water feature testing areas are frequently used for the setup and trial run of the actual water features. Depending on the size and complexity of the design a scale model is sometimes fabricated. This method provides valuable insight into the dynamics of the water flow and movement specific to each feature. Lighting effects are also tested at this time to ensure design intent is accomplished. Scale modeling of any feature can be provided on request.

maintenance services
TropicsNorth streamlines the “concept to completion” process by providing complete in-house services. Our design department develops the plans for our products in CAD. Once approved by the client, we commence fabrication. Our approved drawings are sent to the shop for processing to our CNC equipment designed for stainless steel processing. The component parts are fabricated to exacting standards and are assembled, tested and prepared for shipping to the project site. Site time and coordination is brought to a minimum through this process, since the majority of the fabrication is completed prior to arriving at the project site. Once on site, equipment hookups and coordiation with other trades is streamlined to a matter of days versus weeks or months through “traditional” methods of waterfeature, pool and spa installation in concrete or through the multi trade approach. We truly are a single source design/build operation.
