The products that we use in swimming pool are copings, and tiles for the decks, with natural or machined surface.
The pool copings are usually 2” thick, with worked front edge (bull nose or other finishing).
On the other hand, the design of the tiles used for the deck is upon imagination, from square pieces, to rectangular joining together. The surface can be natural or machined (flamed or brushed). The thickness is usually about 1”.
Porphyry is acid resistant and not slippery, which makes it a great solution for swimming pool and installations near to water.
We suggest to install these on mortar bed and grouted.
