Everyone going on holiday to a destination with a warm climate will, at some point, end up at a swimming pool. It is a significant factor that these pools should be clean and safe for holiday goers. If you're the owner or manager of a resort or hotel with a pool, one of the most important things to consider is the level of slip resistance around your pool. Today, there are a variety of non-skid paints for outdoor tiles and wood decks around pools. Let's explore:
What to consider when investing in non-skid paints for pools
- The level of traction
This is the most important factor to consider when choosing a product to achieve slip-resistant outdoor tiles or decks. The traction you need in a product depends on the level of slip resistance you're after. If you have a high-traffic area that is constantly exposed to wet conditions, you may need a tougher product that offers more traction.
- The appearance of your pool area
You don’t have to change the look of your pool area. Today, there are many non-slip flooring solutions for outdoor tiles and wood decks available that won't change the appearance of your surfaces at all.
- Ease of application
Ideally, you want coatings or non-skid paints for outdoor areas that are easy to apply and convenient to maintain. Many products can be applied by yourself and work in just a few hours.
- Type of surface
There are different products for different types of surfaces. Some are designed specifically for sleek tiles, while others work better on textured surfaces.
