Safety is naturally a concern for those buying a pool, which is where Certkin’s Coverstar comes into its own. It is more than capable of supporting children, pets and even adults, should they accidentally walk on it. Coverstar also prevents leaves, dirt and debris from getting into your pool and helps stop heat, water and chemicals from getting out. With less time to worry about safety, maintenance, upkeep and keeping the correct chemical and heat levels you’ll have more time to relax and enjoy your swimming pool.
Strong cover for optimum safety
Coverstar system is based on strength to ensure safety for children and pets in the pool area. Operated at the flick of a switch, the Coverstar slides across the pool via a discreet track that is built into the pool walls above the water level. The switch is also encased with a lock preventing its operation by unauthorised users. The sliders used in the track are more than four times as strong as any other slider used in the industry. The sliders are operated with Coverstar’s exclusive heavy-duty double row sealed stainless steel ball bearing pulleys that have almost triple the load bearing capacity of single row pulleys used by other companies. In addition all Coverstar safety covers now include the new Powerflex rope. This behaves like a shock absorber, allowing it to be more forgiving and self-adjusting during operation. When in place on the pool, the Coverstar is locked into place with its key switch ensuring that it cannot be removed.
Coverstar supply the far superior Ultragard III vinyl composite in a range of colours. Ultragard III offers the best solution available to problems posed in safely covering a pool in current harsh environments. The UV resistance offered by Ultragard III reduces the level of colour fading considerably as compared to standard vinyl. Under test conditions, Ultragard III has been exposed to the equivalent of approximately four years of Florida sun and fading was shown to be negligible. This fabric also offers high resistance to chlorine, acid, ozone and other pool chemicals. Exclusively, Coverstar Ultragard III comes complete with colour matched, heat sealed webbing. Not only does this provide an aesthetically pleasing finish to the cover but eliminates the risk of premature failure caused by degraded stitching. All in all, Coverstar Ultragard III is the ideal pool cover fabric.
Depending on which style of system you choose, you can have one of two methods of covering the mechanism. For deck mount systems Coverstar provide white fibreglass housings for the motor and non-motor end of the roller. These housings screw to the deck securely and keep the mechanisms safe, clean and out of site. The roller and covering material is left on view. For recessed (pit installed) systems, our aluminium flat lid installed within the perimeter of the pit allows easy access to the roller and mechanism below. Alternatively on an ‘under coping system’ our heavy duty pit trays are available onto which paving or similar can be directly laid in order to blend the pit cover in with the pool surround. Both options come complete with our heavy duty pit. For more information on the many options available with Coverstar, please download the Coverstar brochure.
