Swimming Pool Tiles

There are many tiles suitable for use in swimming pools most of which will not be classed as pool tiles but will still be suitable. The key requirement in a pool environment is a low water absorption rate of less than 3%. This means that all porcelain and crystal glass materials are suitable for pool applications in conjunction with our fixing guidelines.

For leisure and competition pools we have a specific range of pool tiles and complimentary fittings available. Our range of tiles are pressed glazed porcelain and offer much greater accuracy of size and strength of body when compared to extruded swimming pool tiles.

Available in a selection of colours, 2 finishes. There is also an extensive selection of pool fittings available for pool edges including finger grips. The tiles in this range are available in a 250x125mm except where stated.

The guidelines for pool tiles on the base of the pool are as follows. Water depths from 1mm to 450mm should achieve a slip resistance with a minimum of a €B€ classification Wet ramp test. Water depths from 450mm to 850mm as above or a gritted pool tile. Water depths over 850mm any porcelain, porcelain mosaic, gloss tile or crystal glass mosaic.
