Like swimming pools, tanning ledges can be constructed from several different materials.Latham offers two types of tanning ledges, Fiberglass Gel Coated and Vinyl. 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.
Fiberglass Gel Coated tanning ledges come in a variety of pre-engineered shapes and sizes to seamlessly integrate into any new or existing pool design. Our selection of rectangular and freeform tanning ledges shapes can be added to any inground pool, whether you have a fiberglass, vinyl liner or any other type of pool.
Vinyl tanning ledges are crack-proof, offer fast and easy liner replacement, and can be customized to enhance any vinyl liner pool design. The size and shape options are nearly endless, such as end-to-end rectangular ledges or curved ledges that extend from your vinyl pool steps. Get inspired for your pool design by our rectangular, semicircle and freeform vinyl tanning ledge examples below:
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.
