Most new rectangular concrete or gunite pools accommodate an automatic pool cover by using our Underside track system. The track is concealed underneath the pool's overhanging coping and the cover mechanism is housed below the surface of the deck. Provisions for this track must be made prior to construction. Underside track can sometimes be included when a pool and deck are remodeled.
Adding track channel allows Underside track to be used for raised wall and thin coping applications. The track channel is set into the wall and the Underside track is installed securely inside the track channel.
Vanishing-edge pools are designed to highlight the horizon line when sitting in the pool. Underside track for vanishing-edge pools allows the cover to attach on the "vanishing" side of the pool so that water can flow underneath. Discuss incorporating a cover system into your vanishing-edge pool during the beginning planning stages.
The deck-mounted Universal and SnapTop track is an excellent choice for existing rectangular pools. The low-profile guides run parallel on the deck along the side of the pool.
Recessed track is another option for existing pools where a surface-mounted track is advised. The track is installed flush into the surface of the deck.
New freeform pools can incorporate a Cover-Pools pool cover by using deck-on-deck construction and track channel with Underside track. This technique involves building a rectangular deck slightly raised above the freeform pool deck. The tracks are placed under the coping of the raised rectangular deck.
The extended cantilever deck construction method also allows freeform pools to use an undertrack installation with track channel. With this technique, the tracks are laid out parallel to each other at the widest part of the pool on the first deck. A second deck is built slightly raised to allow the cover to open and close without obstruction, and it mirrors the shape of the pool.
The deck-mounted SnapTop track can be used for freeform pools where Underside track is not an option. The low-profile guides run parallel on the deck along the side of the pool.
Recessed track is another option for pools where a surface-mounted track is advised. The track is installed flush into the surface of the deck.
