Track Systems

Recessed Mounted Track
Underside Track
Underside™ Track

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 or housed within track channel. The cover mechanism is typically housed below the surface of the deck.

Provisions for this track must be made prior to construction.

Track Channel

Track channel encapsulates the Underside track and simplifies the track installation and maintenance. The channel is set into the wall and the track is installed securely inside the track channel. Adding track channel allows Underside track to be used for raised wall, thin coping, vinyl-liner, or fiberglass applications. In addition, the channel eliminates the need for a cantilever since the channel is installed flush with the pool wall.

Cover-Pools offers a variety of channels to satisfy most construction challenges.

Track Channel

Cover-Pools standard channel is the most durable channel in the industry. It is composed of extra-thick gauge aluminum, which is primed and painted to withstand corrosion. The extra-long stem and two-him system ensure that the track will remain secure. In addition, it contains two alignment pin channels to ensure the channel is straight during installation.

Low Profile Track Channel

Our low profile channel is 1″ tall and uses a single shim,which can double as a trim guard to hide the tile line. It is composed of extra-thick gauge aluminum, which is primed and painted to withstand corrosion. The extra-long stem and two-him system ensure that the track will remain secure.

To accommodate raised walls, the  channel flange can be removed and a screw can fit inside the back of the channel, so you can attach the channel directly to the wall.

Corr-Resist™ Track Channel

Corr-Resist track channel is a durable, non-metallic track channel built to withstand the harshest pool environments. The channel is composed of rigid polymer material that contains UV inhibitors. This high-performing channel eliminates all salt corrosion, protecting one of the most fundamental parts of the cover system.

Inverted Track Channel

Inverted channel is attached to the top edge of the pool wall or recessed into a notched pool wall. Because the channel sits below the flange, you can achieve the desired coping height even if the cover wasn’t planned perfectly.

Coping Forms for Channel

Coping forms interlock inside the channel to secure a proper deck pour. When the pour has set, remove the form and finish the edge with a similar trowel. Cover-Pools provides three coping types.

The channel provides the same benefits as standard channel and is composed of extra-thick gauge aluminum, which is primed and painted to withstand corrosion. The extra-long stem and two-him system ensure that the track will remain secure.

Vinyl Liner Coping
Bullnose Coping

Cover-Pools bullnose vinyl liner coping is a one-piece track channel, vinyl liner retainer, and coping form. Bullnose coping has a rounded, bullnose shape, includes a splice cover to maintain alignment and hide splices, and contains a low track channel profile that requires only one shim. With bullnose vinyl liner coping, you can incorporate 90 degree, 6″ or 24″ radius, or chopped (45 degree) corners.

Deck-Mount Track

New and existing pools of virtually any shape or construction can be covered using deck-mounted track. As long as there is room for the tracks to run parallel on opposite sides of the pool, you can cover the pool. Even with an attached spa or steps outside the pool perimeter, the pool can still be completely protected.

The SnapTop track system uses wheels or gliders to guide the cover smoothly along the length of the pool. This versatile track is a low-profile aluminum guide. This track offers the added feature of concealed screws.

Universal Track

The universal track system uses an adjustable dual-wheel assembly to guide the cover smoothly along the length of the pool. This versatile track is a low-profile aluminum guide.

Slim Track™

The Slim Track is designed for spas, swim spas, and small pools with Step-Saver™ systems. The track installation is similar to the SnapTop™ track with concealed screws; however, it takes up less deck space, is narrower, and has an even smaller profile than SnapTop track. This track system uses an adjustable dual-wheel assembly to the cover.

Slim Track
Flush Track

Cover-Pools flush track is installed flush with the deck. The track is contained within a narrow channel that is poured into the deck, provides debris protection, allows for smoother cover operation and less fabric-wear, and contains a built-in rope diverter. The snap-in-place stand provides easy height adjustments during installation.

This type of track can be used on new pool construction or an existing pool during deck renovation.
