Pool Coping Tiles & Pavers

Pool Coping Tiles & Pavers

Pool Coping tiles & pavers are used as a protective layer for your pool deck and a safety measure for swimmers. Having a swimming pool in a residential or commercial complex arouses safety concerns. Therefore, Pool Copings are done around the edge of pools used as boundaries of the pool deck.

Modern Pool Coping tiles & pavers cover the steel/iron rods on the upper surface of pool walls while giving your deck a polished look. Needless to mention they dramatically reduce the chances of slipping. Pool Coping Pavers are thick enough to bear weight. They also give an adequate grip when getting in or out of the pool and help protect the tank from water damage. Water splashed out of the tank is drained back into the pool with the help of pool coping pavers. These stones are easy to maintain and do not crack or break easily. Post sealing, they stand regular wear & tear and odds of staining.

Our Pool Coping tiles & pavers range in various natural stones like Travertine, Limestone, Granite and Slatestone. The availability of assorted colours allows you to give your pool surroundings a distinctive touch and elevate the aesthetics naturally. We offer pool copings in drop face and bullnose. Drop face pool copings have a 90-degree drop, giving the pool a neat look. Bull nose copings have a rounded edge that protects swimmers from any injury.
