In areas where you're worried about people slipping because of wet conditions, the Greatmats Life Floor Slate Tiles 3/16 Inch product will give you peace of mind. These non-slip slate pool surround flooring tiles have a gripping surface that also has the look of a slate top texture surface.
Our 3/16-inch tiles consist of a foam rubber blend and are manufactured using the patented EvaTrax tile technology, which is a non-toxic, UV-stable, durable, soft, and slip resistant flooring solution.
The Life Floor Slate Tiles 3/16 Inch product from Greatmats can be used in a large number of different configurations and locations. However, these safer pool decking tiles are especially great to install in any area outdoors or indoors where people will be walking around with bare feet and where water will be present.
Hot Tubs: Regardless of whether your hot tub is installed indoors or outdoors, our outdoor pool slate tile product will give you the sure footing you need when you're climbing into and out of the hot tub. With the heat that the water in the hot tub generates, you'll have extremely slippery conditions around the area with condensation, so installing our outdoor pool floor tiles will be a smart idea.
Locker Rooms: Whether the locker room is in a school, athletic gym, or pool area, it's an area that's sure to become wet at some point. Our outdoor pool floor tiles will provide the safe, non-slip surface that you want to have in this area. And you easily can cut these tiles to fit around lockers or benches for a good-looking installation.
Patios and Decks: If you live in an area that receives a lot of rain or that has high humidity, some common materials used in the construction of patios and decks could become slippery. Placing our outdoor pool floor tiles over these materials will give you the safe surface you need in those areas.
Showers and Baths: If you have a slippery type of flooring in a shower area or near a bathtub in your bathroom, our outdoor pool floor tiles will also work extremely well when used in these indoor locations. The slate style of flooring we've created will look great when used in a bathroom. Greatly reducing the possibility of slipping in these areas with our outdoor pool slate tile product can provide peace of mind for elderly people, for example.
Splash Pads: Splash pads are becoming popular in city parks, at athletic clubs and country clubs, near swimming pools, and even around a personal swimming pool. Kids naturally will be running and jumping in this area, which will be wet and potentially slippery. Our outdoor pool slate tile will give people running through the splash pad the good footing they need to avoid slipping and falling.
Swimming Pools: Whether you have an outdoor or indoor swimming pool, our safer pool decking tiles are the perfect solution. These tiles feature a sure footing in the top surface texture, which will help people avoid a dangerous slip when walking with wet feet around the pool. Each outdoor pool slate tile has been UV treated, ensuring it will stand up well to direct sunlight. But these tiles also work well when used for indoor pools.
Ultimately, anyplace you need an area that will maintain a safe footing when exposed to water is a perfect place for our safer pool decking tiles. If you're unsure about a particular area where you'd like to install our product, just contact the Greatmats customer service team to gain answers to any questions you may have.
These safer pool decking tiles are crafted from PE/EVA foam and rubber blended materials, which provide a soft footing, both for people wearing shoes and for those in bare feet. This tile solution provides cushioning and anti slip-characteristics, which will help those moving around the pool avoid slipping.
The ripple texture on the outdoor pool slate tile has the highest traction rating when wet, which makes it the perfect option to use around pool and shower areas. Additionally, the texture makes these tiles look like slate, which gives you a product that looks like it costs more than it actually does.
These soft pool deck tiles each feature a 3-year manufacturer's limited warranty, which means you can count on them lasting a long time, no matter where you install them. Our outdoor pool floor tiles are a Made in the USA product that features only the best materials.
Each outdoor pool slate tile has a material hardness rating of Shore C 65, which guarantees toughness. Yet these safer pool decking tiles are also bendable and have a bit of softness to them, which makes them extremely comfortable for people who will be standing and walking on them in bare feet.
Another great feature of the Life Floor Slate Tiles 3/16 Inch product from Greatmats is that it remains cooler to the touch in warm temperatures or in sunlight versus concrete or asphalt. This means our outdoor pool floor tiles are perfect for use in bare feet, as you won't have to worry about people walking on surfaces that heat up in sunlight.
These safer pool decking tiles are manufactured to be UV stable for many years, meaning they won't see their color fade significantly over time.
You'll install these tiles using commercial grade contact cement. Some people will choose to hire a specialist or contractor to do the tile installation, but you also can perform the installation yourself with just a few tools.
These tiles are thin and lightweight, which makes them easy for one person to move around and install. Each tile measures 2 by 2 feet, which yields a coverage area of 4 square feet. You'll be able to install these safer pool decking tiles much faster than some smaller tiles because they cover so much area at once.
Additionally, each outdoor slate pool tile only weighs 0.68 pounds, so one person can carry several tiles at one time. You can cut these thin tiles to fit in the necessary space, as each tile only measures 3/16 of an inch in thickness and can be cut with a straightedge and a sharp utility knife.
Only install the tiles on a prepared concrete surface or on a similar hard flat surface. You'll want to make any repairs to the sub-surface to remove significant indentions or to cover large cracks to give the sub-surface good integrity.
All four edges on each outdoor pool slate tile are perfectly straight, meaning you can line up these tiles adjacent to each other without having any gaps between them. Small gaps could lead to raised edges on the tiles for a possible tripping hazard. Gaps also could make it difficult to clean the tiles, so having high quality tiles with perfect 90-degree corners ensures a smoother installation.
When installing these outdoor pool floor tiles in a location that will be submerged in water, you can use a synthetic rubber, waterproof contact cement that is rated to withstand underwater environments.
Cleaning and Maintenance
These tiles require very little work for cleaning. Because the floor tiles consist of a closed cell foam, no moisture can penetrate into the material. You can mop the tiles for a thorough cleaning using a Life Floor cleaning solution, or you can use a damp mop with hot water alone. Rinse the tiles with cool water from a standard hose.
If you want to use a pressure washer with the tiles, you can use a maximum of 2500 psi on the tiles, as long as you don't use the nozzle too close to the foam rubber floor tiles. For pressure washing, stay at least 15 inches away from the surface of the tiles and use a 20 degree or wider tip.
The rubber foam blend tiles contain anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, which makes them perfect for wet area environments.
You will need to take some care with preparing the sub-surface before installing these tiles, removing nails or screws that could puncture the tiles. After installation, blended foam tiles can be punctured by other sharp objects too, such as high heels, furniture with narrow legs, and animals with sharp nails, among others. This high density foam flooring tile is designed for wet areas where bare feet are predominate.
You'll love the look of the different options you have for the Greatmats Life Floor Slate Tiles 3/16 Inch product. You can pick from five different color options. Some people will choose to stick with one color of outdoor pool floor tiles throughout the entire installation, while others will want to create a pattern or a border by using more than one color of tile. The color options for these safer pool decking tiles include the following.
- River Rock

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Hello, we're an architectural practice, now working on an outdoor playground with a quite complex surface (double curvature). We found the floor tiles to be a very suitable one for our design. I wonder if Life Floor Tiles can be fabricated in differet shapes to be installed on such surfaces? Please let me know. Thanks!
With the cushion and traction that we've got with this floor, I think we made a great decision. The appearance is awesome.
