Swimming Pool Paint
Taken from Rawlins Paints' blog-post 'A Guide to Swimming Pool Paints and Primers' - When it comes to painting a pool you have to think about a lot. Not only is water involved, but there’s also chlorine to deal with! If you don’t get the right products for the job, the paintwork in and around your pool won’t last very long. Additionally, the right swimming pool paints can help to extend the life of your pool area.
Standard paint won’t last well in swimming pool conditions even out of the water so you should use specialist paints. Zinsser Perma-White Interior is an excellent paint for swimming pool walls and ceilings and trim around the swimming pool. It is a durable, water-based, very low odour finish containing a biocide that protects the dried coating against mould and mildew – guaranteed for 5 years. It is ideally suited for any area of persistent high humidity, frequent temperature changes and poor air circulation.
If you need to paint the swimming pool itself, then Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint will give you an excellent finish. It’s not only resistant to salt water, but a wide range of chemicals. This is useful, as you need to use different chemicals to treat your pool. You can even use it outdoors or indoors!

Leisure Centre Wall Paints
Leisure centre walls are frequently cleaned of marks and scuffs, condensation, etc, therefore the wall coating should be durable and scrubbable whilst maintaining a clean and hygienic finish that is ideal for changing areas, bathing, courts, etc for public use and schools and universities. Easy to clean, durable and available in many colours, if maintained correctly these wall coatings will last for a substantial amount of time.
Rust-Oleum Biosan Aqua Satin is ideal for areas with high humidity and contains the unique antibacterial agent BACTRON™, scientifically proven to kill most types of bacteria, including ‘super bugs’, by a variety of different mechanisms. Unlike some other biocides and antimicrobial additives BACTRON™ is not classified as harmful to humans and, supported by good housekeeping practices, is the ideal solution for the maintenance of a hygienic environment in areas where cleanliness is of utmost importance. It is great for use in leisure centres, sports centres, exercise halls, and schools where a tough, scrubbable paint that matches corporate branding is required, with 4,400+ colours available. Its quick drying time helps ensure minimal disruption and downtime for businesses and public services, too. Sikagard 405 W is another tough and highly durable wall coating (professional-use only) with good resistance to repeated cleaning and disinfection regimes, using mild detergents and cleaning solutions commonly used in healthcare facilities, spa and treatment rooms, and to thoroughly clean sports centres.
