Four Steps to a Safer Aquatic Center


In our last blog article, we shared a great piece of press we'd gotten for our SoftSide safety padding. Did you know that you can take steps to make your aquatic center even safer? You can pad the hard surfaces and you can also try to prevent common slip-and-fall type accidents in the first place. One of the easiest steps you can take is to create traction and security around the pool – and we have several different methods for increasing safety. Read on to find out how to create a safer aquatic center.


Step One: Get Rid of Excess Water


Standing water can create hazardous areas on your pool deck, especially on notoriously slick concrete. That's why removing excess water is important and we created a way to do just that with our DuraTech™ Deck Drain system. The Deck Drain is manufactured from tough PVC and installed in your pool deck, and keeps water from collecting where it doesn't belong. The Deck Drain exterior is also tough PVC that is textured for additional security.



Step Two: Create a Safer Pool Deck


By tackling the problem of the pool deck, you'll automatically be taking care of one of the major issues at any pool. A hard and slick pool deck is a recipe for injury – but inferior coatings or coverings won't last or necessarily even work. We designed our PVC recreational flooring product to be marine-grade and ideal for your aquatic center. RecDeck™ is tough, durable, and yet still more attractive than common concrete. It's is also highly textured, creating a much safer surface; for added security, RecDeck can even be installed over safety foam. RecDeck fully encapsulates the surface below and is totally watertight. Unlike lesser surfaces, RecDeck won't chip, flake, or peel and is also formulated to resist organic growth and stay colorfast.



Step Three: Check Your Perimeter


If you haven't put much thought into your pool grating, you may have missed an opportunity to improve your pool's safety system. Many guests enter or exit the pool by hopping in or off the pool edge and if you have inferior-quality grating, you aren't providing the safest surface possible. We designed our DuraTech™ line to last, and our PVC grating is textured and certified slip-resistant. By creating a safer pool edge, you can add to an overall safer environment at your facility.



Step Four: Have the Right Padding


As we mentioned in our last article, there is no substitute for quality safety padding at your pool. SoftSide™ pads have been shown to dramatically reduce both serious and fatal head fall-trauma, which is vital - especially at centers with dive structures or play features. SoftSide padding can be ordered in common sizes as well as custom sizes, allowing you to get exactly the padding you need for your unique facility. From 1/2”-4” thick, there is exactly the level of safety pad protection for your hazardous areas. SoftSide is covered in thick PVC that is watertight, pore-free for easy cleaning, and is also textured for stability. Made right here in the USA.



By removing excess water, creating additional traction, and providing safety padding where you need it, you'll create a much safer aquatic facility for your guests.
