Safety is naturally a concern for those buying a pool. This is where Certikin’s Coverstar comes into its own as it is one of the best covers in the marketplace. It is more than capable of supporting the weight of children, pets and even adults, should they accidentally walk on it. But it also has other huge advantages over competitors’ products.
Most automatic cover manufacturers use sewn webbing. With this method, the webbing often fails before the fabric does. Coverstar, however, uses an exclusive, patented process to heat seal the webbing around a polymer bead and weld it to the cover in one step. This heat-sealed webbing is colour matched to the fabric to create an attractive finish. Independent lab tests show Coverstar’s heat-sealed webbing is more than twice as strong as competitive webbing sewn to a cover.
Furthermore, rather than use industry-standard vinyl for the cover, which is popular with other manufacturers, Coverstar uses the far superior Ultra Guard III vinyl composite.
The high level of UV resistance offered with the Ultra Guard III will reduce the level of colour fading considerably, compared to standard vinyl, plus it offers high resistance to chlorine, acid, ozone and other pool chemicals.
Coverstar’s Ultra Guard III fabric with colour-matched heat-sealed webbing has a 7-year warranty (the first 3 years is 100%, followed by the remaining 4 years pro-rata) and is
available in a range of colours. The optional low-profile leading edge will complete the aesthetic appearance.
Engineered with extreme precision, the Coverstar mechanism is built on strength. The sliders are more than four times stronger than any other used in the industry.
The exclusive heavy duty double ball bearing pulleys have almost triple the load bearing capacity of single row pulleys used by other manufacturers. No sheer pins or
bolts are used, instead the system operates with keyways to provide maximum reliability. Unlike other systems it cannot double engage causing the system to try to run in both directions at the same time, causing gears to wear and slip.
Coverstar’s Powerflex Diamond Braid Ropes behave like a shock absorber. They are self-adjusting during operation for a more reliable performance, which negates
the need for a compensator. Coverstar’s mechanism has a 20 year manufacturer’s warranty. The Diamond Braid Ropes are the only ropes to come with a 2 year no-break warranty.
To top it all, the surrounding and connected heavy-duty frameworks and brackets are fully expandable, ensuring the most solid fixing and eliminating bent and/or broken brackets. Once the system is locked into place, it cannot move around.
Coverstar is suitable for both deck mount and pit mounted installations and comes with end covers (for deck mounting) and a selection of pit coverings (for pit mounted installations) including heavy duty trays for copings, a new flat lid plus composite decking.
Whilst our range of pool safety equipment can help to safeguard children and pets around the pool, it is no substitute for responsible supervision. Children must still be supervised at ALL TIMES. It takes just 2 seconds and 2 inches of water for a child to drown.
