Constructing An Anti-Slip Swimming Pool Design Using Resin Bound

Introducing Resin Bound

If you have a swimming pool, hot tub, or jacuzzi, it’s a good idea to have at least some of its surrounding surfaces be coated with an anti-slip material to prevent accidents and to allow people to walk with confidence and ease near the water’s edge. Resin Bound paving solution from Making Ground is the perfect answer for creating surfaces that are skid-resistant and porous for water evaporation and reduction of surface temperatures. Water will drain instead of pooling, and temperatures will be significantly lower than those of asphalt or concrete. Resin Bound is a stronger durable system, providing a proven and tested anti-slip, anti-skid surface appropriate for both pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic, cutting down the risk of accidents.

A Variety of Finishes

Resin Bound is aesthetically pleasing and available in a variety of finishes. It is smooth to the touch, seamless, and highly decorative. Resin Bound is designed to be trodden upon by bare feet, rubber wheels, and shoes of all types. It encapsulates environmentally-friendly aggregates and forms a homogenous surface that is attractive to the eye, hard-wearing, and practical. It can be installed quickly and features no cut pieces and excellent resistance to chemicals.

Resin Bound consists of only a light layer, which reduces consumption of the material. It’s also seamless, requiring no cutting and resulting in virtually no waste. Resin Bound is easily cleaned, resistant to oil and makes for relaxed swimming pool maintenance. Resin Bound is completely flexible in that it can be poured in patterns, motifs and shapes to suit a pool owner’s decorative needs. Landscaping can be interspersed and integrated with the Resin Bound surfaces to suit an owner’s swimming pool designs and concepts.
