There are many types of pool cover but they all have one primary purpose – to prevent dust, dirt, and debris from falling into your pool while it is not in use.
Slatted covers are a relatively modern innovation and present several significant advantages over the old-fashioned basic tarpaulin that was dragged over a pool.
Here are eight of the main ones…
1) Slatted Covers Also Act As Safety Covers
Slatted covers float on the surface of the water and are tailor-made to your pool to provide a snug fit right to the edges. That makes them double up as safety covers to prevent children or pets from entering the water while the cover is in place.
2) Bespoke To Suit The Shape And Contours Of Your Pool
Have a personalized unique pool shape and design? We can manufacture your slatted pool cover to exactly match the layout of your pool.
3) Reduced Convection Heat Loss And Eliminates Evaporation Heat Loss
This is an important benefit of slatted covers compared with other types. The slats act as thermal breaks lying on top of the surface of the water so that convection of heat from the water to the air is massively reduced.
It also means that direct sunlight does not strike the water and therefore no heat is lost through evaporation. These features mean reduced heating costs and reduced use of chemicals.
4) Can Be Retrofitted To Existing Or New Build Swimming Pools
Slatted pool covers offer a great deal of flexibility in the manner in which they can be installed as well as being tailored to your pool. For example, the ultimate in ease of installation is our Moove’O cover. When opened, the slatted cover is rolled up onto a roller that sits on a wheeled base.
That means that one person can roll it away from the pool to provide additional poolside space. To put it in place, simply roll it back to the end of the pool, lock the wheels in place, and press a button on the motor. The slatted cover automatically feeds out over the water and can be locked in place once extended.
Nothing could be easier or more versatile. All our slatted covers have installation options to suit any pool configuration or cover placement.
5) Electric Or Solar Versions (Need No Electrical Cabling)
Several models offer inbuilt solar panels built into the motor unit. That means that they charge their motor battery while sitting either open or closed, ready for one-touch operation when required. The standard specification is for an electric motor powered from mains electricity.
6) Wireless Wall Mounted Cover/Uncover Switch
The control unit can be positioned in a location that is most convenient for you and does not have to be attached to the motor directly. That means that operating the mechanism to either extend the slatted cover over the pool or to withdraw it so as to use the pool, is as easy and simple as it could possibly be.
7) Can Be Installed With The Roller Above Ground Or Hidden In A Concealed Pit
Depending on available space and size of pool surrounds, the roller can be positioned in full view above ground at one end of the pool – or can be concealed under the coping of the pool edge.
8) Traditional Winter Cover No Longer Needed
Your slatted cover is a year-round workhorse that can be put in place for an hour or for the winter months. A winter cover is optional if you wish to protect the slats from any risk of weathering or fading but is no longer essential.
