Pool covers for new pools
A custom-designed system
If you're at the beginning stage of pool planning, now's the time to incorporate a pool cover into the design. Cover-Pools offers an array of special applications that make it possible to include a pool cover on your new swimming pool so that the tracks and mechanism are concealed.
We work with many creative and safety-minded pool builders, distributors, and dealers worldwide who sell and install our pool cover systems. If you need technical information or need to locate a dealer or pool builder in your area, please contact us.
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.
Adding track channel allows Underside track to be used for raised wall, thin coping, vinyl-liner, or fiberglass 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.
For vinyl-liner pools with square, 6" or 24" radius corners, Cover-Pools offers an attractive one-piece coping for undertrack, available in designer white or gray.
The deck-mounted Universal and SnapTop Universal track can be used for rectangular vinyl-liner and fiberglass 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.
New vinyl-liner, fiberglass, and concrete 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.
This deck-mounted track can be used for freeform concrete, vinyl-liner, and fiberglass pools where Underside track is not feasible. The low-profile guides run parallel on the deck along the side of the pool.
Recessed track is installed flush with the surface of the deck for freeform pools of any type. The track sides run parallel to each other along the side of the pool.
