Quad-Core laminated Fabric
Our laminated fabric is made with two outside layers of vinyl that are the same thickness. An adhesive layer is applied to the vinyl and pressed onto the scrim layer with open space between the threads. The uniform vinyl surface that this creates, along with the adhesive additives, protects the scrim from water exposure and abrasion.
Coated fabric – What others use
Coated fabric is made by drizzling molten vinyl over the scrim–the main component supporting the fabric. However, the coating is often uneven, forcing the scrim near the cover’s surface leading to a larger possibility of water exposure and abrasion.
Cover-Pools standard webbing is composed of a 9 oz resin-infused polyester fabric––the same materials used in sail cloth providing protection in a marine environment. It is double-stitched to the fabric using Dabond® bonded polyester threads to create a strong bond between the webbing, fabric, and rope. The primary stitch is hidden from the sun to add UV protection.
The standard webbing comes in 10 color options.
Ultimate™ Heat Sealed Webbing Upgrade
The Ultimate heat sealed webbing is composed of polyester fibers encased in a UV-resistant PVC and urethane protective coating. The coating provides additional resistance to wear, making your fabric more durable. The webbing is heat sealed around the rope and then double-stitched to the fabric. With three levels of protection, you know your webbing will last.
The Ultimate webbing comes in 6 color options to coordinate with you pool fabric and design.
