Pole Pool Covers
Pool Cover With Poles
The Pole Pool cover does not require hooks and eyelets, it works with a ratchet system that is generally very easy to use but complicated enough for children so it acts like a safety device.
When securing the cover not much physical strength is needed to create the required tension. This has the huge benefit that the pool user will be more likely to replace the cover after using the pool. To use the cover, it will be much quicker and easier if you are two people but one person would be able to open half the pool cover if it’s just for using the shallow end.
To open the cover, undo the ratchets, take the starting pole by the end and fold the cover with the poles over one another without any difficulty. The entire cover can be positioned on the paving at the deep end when not in use or stored away.
To fit the pole pool cover you will do the exact opposite, once the cover is over the pool you will tighten the ratchets into place and restrict all access to the pool. To avoid stumping your toes on the protruding stainless steel anchor bolts, we have designed it in such a way that you can unscrew it by hand from the drop-in socket that’s fitted flush with the paving. For extra protection, the anchor bolt is also covered with a plastic cap.
The Solid Safety Pole Pool Cover is the most effective barrier as it seals off the pool and prohibits all access to the water. However, still, the best method is that of responsible adult supervision. The Solid Safety Cover is the single most effective physical barrier to prevent child drowning and secure a pool.
Importantly, there are no fiddly hooks and eyelets, making the cover quick and easy to use. Mothers love the fact that no brute force is required! This blend of the simplicity of design, coupled with practical and user-friendly fastening systems is what makes this cover the desirable choice over other pool safety systems on the market.
The Solid Safety Cover can only be fitted to pools with a width no greater than 5,5m. The cover is heavy (average pool cover 8mx5m weighs 72kg). Fitting and removal involve “fan folding” the cover on and off the pool. The material is flammable and should be kept away from any sources of heat/flame.
It is fitted with drainage holes to prevent the accumulation of water. Dust and debris that accumulates on the cover may infiltrate the pool through these holes. Should the drainage holes become blocked allowing for water to accumulate, this water MUST be removed Failure to do so may result in damage to the cover and may also pose a potential drowning hazard.
The Pole Pool Cover is designed in such a way that it can simply and quickly be taken on or off the pool. The cover can bear the weight of an adult and one child without any damage or risk to the cover or child. The pool cover has drainage holes to allow rain rainwater to drain into the pool.
A common drawback with first-generation PVC covers is that rain or sprinkler water can collect on top of a PVC pool cover, forming a small pool that curious toddlers may be tempted to play in. These aesthetically stylish-looking pool covers are available in different colors so you can incorporate them with the decor of your home and can be matched to the colour of your outdoor living area.
We only use A Grade 600 grams per square meter PVC, Aluminum battens and industrial strength ratchets. We use the 600gsm PVC specifically for the use of swimming pool covers because it’s U.V. treated & chemical resistant and comes with a 3 Year Warranty. All our Pole pool covers get high-frequency welded to insure ultimate strength, we don’t use glue or stitching like some companies out there are doing. The Glue will come undone and the stitching makes too many fine holes which can become a problem. These pool covers are not in direct contact with the pool water so it will extend their lifespan significantly as it doesn’t lie on the chlorine water.
Durable: made from 550gsm PVC, Aluminum battens, and industrial-strength stainless steel ratchets. The backbone of the cover is the 32mm diameter lightweight Aluminum poles built into the cover.
The poles run in the width of the pool and are spaced 1m apart, it extends approximately 30cm over the paving so the poles rest on the paving & the cover rest on the poles. Seeing that the cover is suspended from the water it enables us to punch a series of 8mm drainage holes into the cover allowing rainwater and irrigation water to drain into the pool.
The weight of the cover will increase according to the pool size. While there are different methods to cover and uncover one’s pool that does not involve picking the entire cover-up. Two people are recommended to open and close the cover, one end is anchored into place with removable anchor bolts and the opposite end has corresponding ratchets which allow the cover to be tightened.
The ratchet system is generally very easy to use but complicated enough for children, so it acts like a safety device. When securing the cover, no physical strength is needed to create the required tension, and this has the huge benefit that the pool user will be more likely to replace the cover after using the pool.
