Overview

The PoolDeck slatted covers are CUSTOM MADE to fit any size and shape pool: whether it is indoor, outdoor, residential or commercial – you can choose from a wide variety of POLY CARBONATED or high-quality pvc slats, as well as different installation options to ensure that the cover is integrated perfectly with your pool surroundings.

 

Our slatted covers are EASY to install and even easier to operate; just press a button or turn a key to cover or uncover your pool. Not only are our slatted covers ELEGANT and STYLISH but they will ensure you save money due to the various benefits that were listed. The main benefit is that the polycarbonate option can increase your pools temperature.

 

Please note: Slatted covers float on water. Slats are air sealed and have a buoyancy factor. For Slatted Covers to also act as a safety cover, either a safety ledge or stainless steel handrail is required so nothing can slip between the side of the pool and the internal wall of the pool. This acts as a catchment and prevents the slats from tilting too deep under water. This option can be included on all installation options mentioned here:

Added Benefits

 

As owners of Designer Pool Covers and as parents we encourage that every pool owner must have a comprehensive safety plan when considering having a pool. Legislation makes it compulsory that every pool must have a safety feature such as a net, fence or pool cover*.

 

Our range of covers is the ideal safety device because the cover acts as a horizontal fence, completely sealing off the pool and preventing accidental or unsupervised access by children, pets, and uninvited visitors.

 

Other safety features of our range of covers include:

 

• Strength: our covers can hold up to 150kg (on manual options) and 250 kg pm2 (on automated options)

• Accessibility: our covers can be locked and closed with various systems (depending on product chosen)

• Tamper proof and durable
