Making a Splash with Aqua Tile: Designing Splash Pads for Maximum Safety and Fun

Creating a safe yet exciting environment for water play is a top priority for developers and municipalities alike. With Aqua Tile’s innovative multi-directional textured tiles, designing splash pads that prioritize safety without compromising on fun has never been easier. In this article, we’ll explore why Aqua Tile is the ultimate solution for creating water play areas that offer both maximum safety and endless enjoyment. 

The Mission of Aqua Tile 

At the heart of Aqua Tile’s mission is the commitment to providing high-quality safety flooring for aquatic recreation spaces. With over 50 years of combined manufacturing, flooring, and safety standards experience, Aqua Tile identified a critical need in the industry for a flooring solution that reduces the risk of injury while enhancing the overall experience of water play areas. 

Innovative Features for Enhanced Safety 

Aqua Tile’s multi-directional textured tiles are engineered to prioritize safety in every aspect. The tiles boast superior slip resistance, thanks to their patent-pending design, which minimizes the risk of slips and falls even in wet environments. Additionally, the impact attenuation properties of Aqua Tile’s tiles provide an extra layer of protection, cushioning falls and reducing the potential for injuries. 

Customizable Options for Every Project 

One of the standout features of Aqua Tile is its ability to be customized to suit the unique design needs of any splash pad project. With a range of color options available, including custom color collections, developers have the flexibility to create vibrant and engaging water play areas that seamlessly integrate with their overall design vision. 

Real-World Success Stories 

The effectiveness of Aqua Tile in creating safer water play areas is evident in numerous real-world installations. From water parks to municipal splash pads, Aqua Tile has been trusted by developers worldwide to deliver on its promise of enhanced safety and fun. By incorporating Aqua Tile into their projects, developers have seen a significant decrease in slip and fall injuries, providing peace of mind for both operators and visitors alike. 

Exceeding Industry Standards 

Aqua Tile’s commitment to safety goes beyond just meeting industry standards—it exceeds them. The primary feature of these standards is to provide a surface with as much or more friction than brushed concrete, along with a reduction in the force of impact in the event of a fall. Aqua Tile’s closed-cell foam tiles not only provide the necessary friction but also act as a cushion, drastically reducing the potential for injury compared to traditional surfaces. 


When it comes to designing splash pads for maximum safety and fun, Aqua Tile stands out as the ultimate solution. With its innovative features, customizable options, and track record of success, Aqua Tile continues to revolutionize the way we approach water play areas. By choosing Aqua Tile, developers can create water play spaces that not only prioritize safety but also provide endless enjoyment for visitors of all ages. 

Safety and fun. All in one.
