Dekton pools and spas: Aesthetics and maximum performance

The presence of water and the chemical products needed for use in swimming pools and spas require materials that are resistant and non-slip, and which minimise the number of joints and prevents slips. Dekton offers the best technical and aesthetic solution.

Large format, minimal number of joints

The large format allows us to create more challenging shapes that would be impossible with other materials, such as very narrow pieces.

Its substantial 3,200 x 1,400 format covers large surfaces, reducing the number of joints. Joints in wet areas are often a place where bacteria and microorganisms can breed. Therefore, a minimum number of joints makes the space more hygienic overall.

The almost zero porosity of Dekton makes it ideal for damp areas, avoiding the spread of micro-organisms.

Hygienic and resistant inside spas

Both the water in the pools and spas and their required maintenance are linked to the use of chemical products.

Dekton is an excellent material to use in areas which have to be cleaned using more corrosive products to ensure hygiene.

Showers and Bathtubs

The inside of a shower is one of the spaces where Dekton shows off its extraordinary features. Thanks to its large format and cutting capacity, the pieces can be designed to cover from floor to ceiling, minimising vertical and horizontal joints.

This resource allows us to continue the bathing area into the shower, or to differentiate it, as required.
