Anti-Slip RollerRock Ideal for Indoor Pool Deck
Even when it’s cold and snowy outside, it’s warm and inviting at The Inn at Scituate Harbor. Located on the Atlantic Coast in Massachusetts, the inn includes 29 comfortable rooms, each one with a harbor view.
When the weather is too cold to go outside, many guests enjoy the indoor heated pool that’s available year-round for the inn’s guests and local parties. To make the pool area as attractive and safe as possible, the inn’s owners added Daich Coating’s RollerRock and DiaHard100 Epoxy Clear Coat to the deck surface.
“Our indoor pool deck was a mess,” says Lynda Ferguson, general manager and co-owner of The Inn at Scituate Harbor. “It was cement and painted or covered with several different things over the years — but nothing would stick.
“In 2017 we decided to try the RollerRock product and it was awesome! This product looks great, it’s stayed down perfectly for several years and has also added a level of safety to our indoor pool deck.”
RollerRock Concrete Surface Covering
Made with real stone, RollerRock is not a paint. It’s a high-performance coating made of stone. Successfully installed on millions of feet of exterior concrete since 2005, RollerRock is applied with just a roller and brush. Available in 15 colors, the surface has a clean, speckled stone appearance.
Because of the stone texture of RollerRock, the product has delivered an anti-slip score of 0.093 — almost twice the OSHA recommended standard. That anti-slip aspect helps a great deal for guest usage of the indoor pool at The Inn at Scituate Harbor — and with the pool parties hosted there for local children.
RollerRock has endured so beautifully in the high humidity of the indoor pool area at The Inn at Scituate Harbor because it resists water, salt, chemicals, mold, mildew, impact and abrasions. The product can also be used on outdoor pool decks and concrete surfaces because it resists UV rays, hot tire pickup, and freeze/thaw conditions.
DiaHard Epoxy Clear Coat Sealant
To seal the RollerRock on the indoor pool deck surface, the team at The Inn at Scituate Harbor used DiaHard 100 Epoxy Clear Coat. The low-odor, zero-VOC formula provided a strong sealant that is salt and chemical resistant.
DaiHard100 Epoxy Clear Coat delivers heavy-duty, industrial strength epoxy durability, wear-resistant beauty and easy maintenance. The self-priming formula has a specially-modified two-part “100% solids” epoxy chemistry that has been proven for years on automotive, commercial and industrial floor surfaces. The “clear shield” of the finish added strength to the pool deck surface that receives daily use.
“We’re really pleased with the long-term benefits of RollerRock,” says Ferguson. “We get a lot of positive comments on it from our guests.
“Another aspect that was great about this project was working with the staff at Daich Coatings. They were incredible. They offered us so much helpful information and they were extremely patient with us. This is a product and a company we would definitely use again.”
