Aaron's Corner - Bringing Safety to a Pool Near You
We at Federal Stone Industries, Inc. promote Pool Safety to all our customers and those who would like to learn. We want to make your Pool Swimming experience as pleasant as possible. With the correct knowledge, tools, and safety protocols; the individual swimmer can swim worry free.
To cast "The World's Safest Pool Edge" we work diligently using principles that our most "safety conscious" stone; the Safety Coping, promotes the "Safest Edge in a Pool." This stone is designed for the individual swimmer to have an "edge" to hold onto. Our coping provides an ergonomically correct hand-grip, and child safety edge. We want that tired swimmer to be able to grab and hold onto the coping stone and keep them above water and safe. We especially want children and parents of those precious young ones to feel comfortable holding onto the edge as they maneuver through the learning process.
Our ideas and theories on Pool Safety and furthering Education mirror those of Partnering Organizations such as "The World's Largest Swimming Lesson", "Pool Safety", "Pool Safety Council", and "National Aquatics Safety Organizations." We want you; the customer, to use these resources and their affiliating websites to further educate yourselves on the Safest Pool Practices.
