School Swimming Pool Surrounds
At TactTiles we have a reputation for revitalising and creating safe and hygienic pool surrounds for a wide variety of school swimming pools - whether they be indoors, under a telescopic pool cover or outdoors with a normal pool cover.
School swimming pool surrounds can be retro-fitted with TactTiles flooring over a wide variety of substrates including ceramic tiles, paving slabs, concrete and tarmac. We can remove old carpet, artificial grass and rubber flooring and seal the surface to provide a clean and hygienic substrate before installing our Bergo tiles, reducing both time and cost.
Design for safety
Many schools make use of the colour range to incorporate safety features, for example a red line to indicate the deep end, or a yellow edge to clearly delineate the waters' edge. A different coloured tile can be used to indicate where the children must stand whilst waiting to go into the water. Small but practical improvements which can assist the instructor in keeping the class safe whilst in the pool area. We find that the bright colours of the Bergo tiles can be a great help for pupils with visual impairment, using a strong dark colour around the pool helps them to distinguish the edge of the water and good grip underfoot adds to the feeling of security.

Upgrading an outdoor pool
Many schools are converting outdoor pools by building a telescopic pool cover over them and in this situation Bergo tiles are ideal as they can be laid over existing paving. Do not underestimate the visual impact of installing Bergo tiles around your poolside, the whole area will look brighter and cleaner as repairs are hidden from view.
