Building a swimming pool significantly increases the aesthetic value of a home in addition to providing wellness and recreation. This is why ceramic for pools is the best choice for covering a pool floor as well as for terrace floor tiling.
Outdoor pool flooring must not only have a lovely look, but also meet a series of technical requirements for guaranteed safety.
For this reason, Exagres extruded stoneware is the best choice for designing outdoor and indoor pool areas as it’s very resistant and safe material.
Characteristics of pool flooring
The best guarantee for quality and durability is found in Exagres pool flooring which is comprised of more resistant and safer material. Some of the most outstanding characteristics and advantages are as follows:
Due to the extrusion manufacturing process, a porcelain stoneware with high durability, low porosity and high resistance to impact wear or sudden changes in temperature is achieved.
An extensive range of collections and finishes
The warmth of wood, elegant marble or timeless stone are some of the options available for tiling flooring around pools. Exagres offers a wide range of graphic possibilities and textures to clad these areas.
Special pieces for construction solutions
Swimming pool construction involves level changes that require special pieces for complete integration between the interior, exterior and pool flooring.
For safer outdoor pool flooring, the finish must be non-slip. The ceramic used for Exagres swimming pools has received the highest classification for non-slip flooring, a C-3 finish for exteriors.
Anti-slip outdoor floor for pools
One of the most important aspects when choosing swimming pool material, besides the aesthetics, is the safety of outdoor pool flooring.
The highest level of slip resistance is required to guarantee pool safety. The anti-slip pool flooring has a R11 finish as the perfect solution for ensuring user integrity.
A R11 finish is not only ideal for flooring around swimming pools, it’s also important for stairs to be cladded with anti-slip material.
Extruded stoneware is the perfect technical solution for this because of its immense resistance, low porosity and anti-slip level. If you’d like more information contact us.
