Why should you invest in non-slip flooring around your swimming pools?

Non-slip flooring for swimming pools is essential, as pools are incredibly susceptible to becoming slippery, with water escaping from the pool creating cold and wet surfaces that are hazardous to pool users. Therefore, non-slip flooring for swimming pools should be considered essential.

Pool users frequently ignore or forget the rules around running near a swimming pool, even in the presence of signage and staff. Because water and bare feet coming into contact with non-slip-resistant flooring greatly increases the risk of slips and falls, investing in non-slip flooring for swimming pools will reduce the chances of slipping and injury. Non-slip flooring is especially important for leisure centres, schools, and other commercial environments with heavy footfall. This type of flooring will not only safeguard pool users but protect your organisation from potential legal action following an injury.

Non-slip flooring works by raising the walking surface above the level of the wet floor, meanwhile allowing excess water from the pool to drain effectively. The surface of the non-slip flooring feels comfortable to bare feet and provides grip, limiting slip hazards.
