5 Most Slip Resistant Pool Deck Tiles

Pool Slips Can Cause Serious Problems. Try a Slip Resistant Flooring.


By Kif Richmann

Do you have a pool deck that you need to cover? There are many options, so choosing the exact product can be a challenge. However, if you have the right information and the right selection, you can find a pool deck tile that is perfect for your needs.

Let's take a look at what you should look for in non-slip pool deck mats, then take a closer look at a few of the top options for your home or facility.

What to Look for in Pool Non-Slip Mats
Before we look at the best products for your pool decks, let's explore the specific characteristics that you should seek in a non-slip tile for pool areas. While everyone's needs and preferences will be different, these are a few of the qualities you should find.

First of all, you need slip-resistance when the mats are wet. Pool decks will obviously have lots of dripping water, so you need a quality material that will maintain slip resistance even when it's covered in water. If the surface is ''slippery when wet,'' it won't do you any good as a pool deck covering; you might as well just stay with the hard surface.

You should also look for a soft surface, as most people enjoying the pool will be barefoot. You won't need the gentle cushioning of foam mats that are used for wrestling and gymnastics, but it never hurts to add a little padding to the surface.

The material should also be non-absorbent. Again, with lots of water all over, any material that absorbs water can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Although pool water is usually cleaned and sanitized, you never want absorbent materials around your pool.

Finally, you should look for a non-slip tile for pool areas that is pleasing to the eye. You can find non-slip pool mats that are basic black, white, or grey, but you can also choose items that are more colorful and decorative. You certainly have your options when it comes to pool non-slip mats, so be sure to take your time and select a product that appeals to you.
