NATURAL STONEWARE FOR SWIMMING POOLS
Gres de Breda is highly valued for its wide range of models for pool edgings, for the special pieces that complement those edges and especially for the inherent characteristic of the product, the safety when walking on wet surfaces.
TerraKlinker Natural Stoneware remains unchanged after the use of the additives that ensure the good maintenance of swimming pools.
Special mention should be made to its excellent weather and thermal shock resistance: it resists both low and high temperatures. Furthermore, Gres de Breda colours do not fade with solar radiation.
Gres de Breda floor tiles show the highest results in slip-resistance tests:
- Walking with footwear on a water-wet inclined surface, Gres de Breda gets category R12 in the test Din 51130,
- Walking barefoot on a water-wet inclined surface, Gres de Breda gets category C in the text Din 51097.
We can emphasize that to ensure its slip resistance, no component is added to the surface of the klinker tiles. Being inherent to the material all the floor tiles and the special pieces of the different collections of Terraklinker are non-slip. Therefore, we can say that Gres de Breda is a safe ceramic for swimming pool decks.
Gres de Breda is fixed in the decks of the popular pools with salt. In those pools no additive is added, only salt is used. A controlled amount of salt is diluted in the water and then sodium hypochlorite will be produced by a chemical reaction, which allows the disinfection of the water. Gres de Breda perfectly resists the treatment of pool water with salt.
We advise to put a drain with a hole (located on the side of the drain) every 9 fixed pieces.
