If you are looking for a relaxing time in a spa, then consider including add a rolled edge. Sometimes a 90-degree coping can be uncomfortable when reclining in a spa, but it is the total opposite with a rolled edge.
It is an art to designing a rolled-beam edge, and Platinum Pools’ designers can do just that. A rolled beam can make a real difference when it comes to the overall comfort of a spa.
In the past, spas were not comfortable, especially when designed and built together with swimming pools. Jet placements were arbitrary, and walls were almost 90-degree angle to the seats. But the most overlooked part was the coping. Coping with grab edges was not ideal for tall people, making it hard to relax. The back, shoulders, or neck can suffer after a while in a spa with sharp points on the edges.
Now, let’s take an example of a regular bathtub. No one notices it, but it does have a rolled edge. The tub’s shell has a structural strength measure and a comfortable area for leaning and resting your head. With this in mind, consider a spot to rest on while in a spa.
Nowadays, designers and builders tend to be much more considerate when setting up their concrete spas—consulting with clients about jet placements to achieve specific hydrotherapy effects. Also, turning vertical walls to a more inclined shape makes it less challenging to lean back and enjoy time in the water.
The coping size and thickness are essential when it comes to adding mosaic tiles. Not only is it a dream for backs and necks, but it’s also a great visual that highlights the presence of the tile and connects the interior of the spa to the surrounding space. Therefore, it is a great choice to use mosaic tiles. It easily covers the beam, especially for an all-tile spa, or selecting materials to handle the wet/dry conditions found on such an edge. It is a style that makes it look like a high-end resort. A pool contractor must have the best masonry and place steel stirrups shaped and ready to accommodate the concrete. It may cost more, but nothing beats comfort, does it?
