Slip-resistant tiles: A key part of VitrA Tiles’ swimming pool range

March 2019

VitrA Tiles offers a full range for the wet leisure market.  All tiles for UK distribution are available for immediate delivery via the company’s network of distribution partners.

VitrA ProColour is a range of tiles developed for the swimming pool market based on the RAL colour matching system, meaning that all 38 colours can be co-ordinated with tiling on all aspects of a leisure project from pool tank to foyers and changing rooms.

Because of their application in wet areas, slip resistance is a key consideration. The range includes a comprehensive assortment of ribbed tiles, overflow systems, pool edge tiles, treads. All these come in a variety of non-slip grades, specifically for use where slip resistance is required and where damp and wet surfaces pose a danger.

Slip resistance is also to be addressed in VitrA Tiles’ new RIBA-approved CPD, Swimming Pools with a Tiled Finish, which it is about to launch. In the CPD, there is full discussion of the various slip resistance test methods which are used, including RAMP tests and the Pendulum test. Designed to enhance the understanding of designers and specifiers in this sector, the new CPD describes the main considerations for the specification of tiles for swimming pools, with reference to the relevant British Standards.
