School near High
Wycombe had an outdoor swimming pool area which was upgraded in
the autumn of 2010 to create a new indoor facility for the children. The project involved building a new polycarbonate
roof over the outdoor pool to enclose it.
The original pool surround area had
been laid in concrete, but because this was slightly uneven it created lots of
puddles. The Headteacher, Alastair Phillips was concerned that the new
enclosure would suffer from condensation and realised that the new floor would
have to be self draining. Safety
underfoot for the children was the most important consideration, but ease of
maintenance and good looks were also important considerations.
After inspecting the area, Tact
agreed drainage could be improved by cutting slots in the concrete to allow the
water to flow away from the poolsides. Once
this work was completed, free draining Pedestrian TactTiles in Light and Dark
Blue were laid around the pool area creating a hygienic new floor surface.
Mr Phillips said, "We are
delighted with the flooring that TactTiles have installed around our new school
swimming pool. The enclosure is bright
and colourful. Pool users have commented
very positively on the environment and the floor is comfortable under-foot and
safe to walk on. Our pool carer has been
pleased with the ease of maintenance and hard-wearing nature of the floor
surface. Thank you for completing the
job in such a professional manner. I
would have no hesitation in recommending TactTiles to anyone looking for a high-quality
swimming pool flooring".
