Pool Tanning Ledge

Every tanning ledge consists of the same basic elements: a shallow, elevated platform that features openings into the main swimming pool.
However, there are countless design variations to choose between, from modern to rustic to classical and beyond. With over 60 years of
experience, Latham Pool Products can customize the perfect tanning ledge to fit your needs and preferences.

Latham Pool Option:

Fiberglass Pool Tanning Ledges

Like swimming pools, tanning ledges can be constructed from several different materials. Two of the most popular options are vinyl, which you can learn more about below and fiberglass.

Fiberglass has several qualities that make it ideal for tanning ledges. Its smooth texture prevents painful snags or scrapes, while its unique chemical composition ensures high durability. This translates to huge savings over time, since less maintenance and fewer repairs are required. In fact, we are so confident in the quality of our fiberglass tanning ledges that we offer industry-leading warranties on our products.

Vinyl Liner Pool Tanning Ledges

Like their fiberglass counterparts, vinyl swimming pool ledges are soft to the touch and quick to construct, delivering excellent value for your investment.

Vinyl is a high-performance alternative to fiberglass, boasting its own unique set of distinctive features. For example, vinyl is crack-proof, offers fast and easy liner replacement, and has nearly endless customization options — to highlight just a few of its many benefits for pool owners. If you’re on a limited budget, vinyl may be the perfect option for your new pool and tanning ledge.

Vinyl-liner swimming pools, which come in an extensive range of colors and patterns, have distinct advantages that make them ideal for many homeowners. Not only are vinyl inground pool liners crack-proof and highly durable, but they also offer a silky-smooth finish that feels soft to the touch.

How Deep is a Pool Tanning Ledge?

The purpose of a tanning ledge is to create an oasis of calm. Since they are designed for lounging instead of exercising, tanning ledges are intentionally shallow — often, containing less than a foot of water. For example, our Gemini, Semicircle, and Picasso tanning ledges are each 10 inches deep, despite measuring different widths and lengths.
