Creating Safer Environments: Aqua Tile’s Impact Attenuation Technology

When it comes to creating safe and enjoyable aquatic environments, Aqua Tile stands at the forefront with its innovative impact attenuation technology. In this article, we’ll take a deep dive into the science behind Aqua Tile’s groundbreaking approach to minimizing the risk of injuries in water recreation areas.

Understanding Impact Attenuation

Impact attenuation refers to a material’s ability to absorb and dissipate the energy generated from a sudden impact, such as a fall. Traditional flooring surfaces like concrete offer minimal cushioning, increasing the likelihood of injuries upon impact. However, Aqua Tile’s engineered closed-cell foam tiles are designed to provide superior impact attenuation, significantly reducing the force exerted on the body during falls.

The Role of Closed-Cell Foam

Aqua Tile’s closed-cell foam composition plays a crucial role in enhancing impact attenuation. Unlike open-cell foam, which compresses fully upon impact, closed-cell foam maintains its structure, offering consistent cushioning and support. This unique property ensures a soft landing surface, mitigating the risk of serious injuries commonly associated with hard surfaces like concrete.

Certified Safety Standards

Aqua Tile’s impact attenuation properties have been independently certified and exceed industry standards for safety. Through rigorous testing and analysis, Aqua Tile has proven its effectiveness in reducing the force of impact, thereby minimizing the risk of head injuries, fractures, and other trauma commonly experienced in water play environments.

Real-World Applications

From splash pads and water parks to pool decks and locker rooms, Aqua Tile’s impact attenuation technology is revolutionizing safety standards across various aquatic settings. By prioritizing the well-being of users, Aqua Tile ensures that families can enjoy water recreation activities with peace of mind, knowing that they are protected by the latest advancements in safety flooring.


Aqua Tile’s commitment to innovation and safety shines through its revolutionary impact attenuation technology. By harnessing the power of closed-cell foam and rigorous testing, Aqua Tile sets a new standard for aquatic flooring, offering unmatched protection against injuries in water play areas.

Safety and fun. All in one.
