AQUATIC SLABS – OVERVIEW
The most popular safety rubber flooring system for waterparks, and swimming pools are the Aqua Slabs. Aqua Slabs are able to endure a chlorinated environment and are suitable for public swim area’s like aqua parks with different kinds of water fountains. They are non slip and highly compacted in manufacturing which gives them their excellent abrasion resistance.
There are a variety of EPDM rubber colours to choose from. Multi-colour slab mixtures can be supplied, where two or three colours are combined at your request. Glitter can also be added to any of the slabs, to create some sparkle, and there are letter, number, and slabs with motifs on them, that can be ordered. Min order per colour is 10 m2. see Colour chart
Rubber feels smooth and soft underfoot, it cushions the body’s joints and ligaments, while being incredibly durable. Aqua Slabs can be supplied in EPDM rubber, and are available in 30mm thickness. see SBR & EPDM
Aquatic Slabs with their abrasion resistant characteristics allow children to play happily without risk of injury, and give authorities peace of mind in terms of safety compliance. The slip-resistant characteristics of Aqua Slabs are tested according to DIN 51097:1992-11 (level B).
It is recommended that Aqua slabs are best installed with corner and edge profiles. See Corners and edges
The Aqua Slabs pair with numerous fun rubber accessories for recreational water parks. see Accessories
Aquq Slabs are a cost effective option for wet flooring/surfaces in South Africa. They are simple to install, and can be done at home without professional assistance. They come with integrated connector pins that secure the slabs when installed in a t-joint configuration, thus protecting against accidental movement and theft. The rubber used in our Aqua Slabs is completely traceable, right down to each individual slab, by using production codes. see Installation
Rubber has stain resistant properties, making it very easy to clean. see Care
SBR & EPDM BENEFITS
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers (EPDM) is a high density synthetic rubber which is weather resistant and absorbs less solar heat. It is extremely versatile with the ability to better withstand temperatures associated with environmental factors such as UV weathering and water swell.
Styrene-butadiene Rubber (SBR) is produced from black rubber tyres that are stripped of their metal reinforcing and then mechanically shredded into granules. These rubber granules are graded and available in different sizes, that can be coloured and used as an economical and surfacing.
While EPDM offers a wider range of colours and is more weather resistant, SBR is a more economical surfacing option.
WET POUR and IMPACT PROTECTION SLABS offers a combination of SBR and EPDM options to give you the best of both rubber products.
WET POUR and IMPACT PROTECTION SLABS applications can accommodate an installation of SBR as the cushion/base layer and EPDM as the wear/top layer.
