Swimming Pool Cover Features

The stronger the pool cover, the safer the pool cover. No company builds in more exclusive design and manufacturing features to ensure the strength and performance of its automatic covers than Coverstar!

Reliable Automatic Pool Cover Mechanism

Reliable-MechanismCOVERSTAR automatic safety pool covers use ultra strong marine grade bracket components make¬† the most durable and reliable automatic pool covers on the market. Nothing holds up and operates better in the harsh, corrosive pool environment. That’s why COVERSTAR mechanism warranties are among the best in the industry.

Our unique mechanism is engineered with heavy-duty components and with ropes and pulleys that are stronger and larger than any others used in the industry. The extreme precision of our pool cover mechanisms comes from the machined and laser-cut parts allows for smooth operation and many, many years of hassle-free use.

Automatic Pool Cover Sealed Motor

Sealed-MotorThe COVERSTAR’S pool cover motor is manufactured with hardened stainless steel shaft and oil bathed gears eliminate motor problems. It is sealed against water by the original motor manufacturer. The motor can operate even when completely submerged if the housing is temporarily flooded. Other, less reliable means of motor protection could mean an expensive motor repair.

Adjustable Torque Limiter Protects Pool Cover

Adjustable-Torque-LimiterA mechanical torque limiter protects the motorized mechanism from creating too much stress on the automated pool cover. Other automatic covers often us an electronic torque limiter that can fail in the harsh pool environment.

High Tech PowerFlex Ropes

High-Tech-PowerFlex-RopesPowerFlex Rope behaves like a shock absorber that allows it to be more forgiving and self adjusting during operation. It also resists distortion that is common with autocover ropes, making it easier to install and operate with fewer adjustments.

Keyed Pool Cover Operation Safety Switch

Keyed-Safety-SwitchThe weather-proof toggle switch locks for secured access to your automatic pool cover system. In less than a minute your pool is opened or closed.

Automatic Pool Cover Guide Locations

An automatic pool cover slides through aluminum guides on two sides of the pool. The Coverstar system for freeform pools can use several cover guide types and accessories for versatile system applications and pool design flexibility.

Standard Pool Cover Underguide Mounting

Standard-Underguide2The standard Underguide is mounted to the bottom side of rectangular pools cantilevered coping.

Encapsulated/Integrated Pool Cover Underguide

Standard-UnderguideFor a more integrated look, guides can be built directly into the pool wall using guide encapsulation.

Standard Topguide Pool Cover Guide Mounting

Standard-TopguideThe standard topguide is a low profile anodized aluminum extrusion (similar to a door threshold) that is mounted on top of the cement deck on both sides of the pool.

Horizontal Flushdeck Pool Cover Guide

Horizontal-Flushdeck-GuideThis cover guide is embedded into and flush with the pool deck. The guide housing is set in place before the deck is poured to create a cavity that the cover guide is inserted and mounted into. The guide is finished with a trouble-free outdoor architectural grade paint that matches the standard flushdeck lid.

flushdeck-lidA popular way to cover a freeform pool is to create a rectangular step-up area around the pool. The “Pool-in-Pool” guide encapsulation option creates an attractive integrated look that makes the cover guide nearly invisible.

Optional Riser Base for Hiding the Leading Edge

Optional-Riser-Base-for-Hiding-the-Leading-EdgeUsing an optional riser base, the guide encapsulation height can be raised to allow the cover’s leading edge to be inverted and hidden under a wider lid.

Pool Cover Fabric & Webbing Strength & Durability

The Coverstar fabric is incredibly strong and durable. An advanced vinyl formulation and superior fabrication methods make it top of the line. No other automatic safety cover manufacturer offers all these exclusive features:
Specially formulated heavy-duty vinyl fabric utilizes extruded coating process and closed polyester weave for superior product performance.

  • Ultraviolet Protection
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Mildew Resistance
  • Fabric Strength (17 oz)
  • Tear Resistance
  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Minimal fabric shrinkage (less than 1%)
  • Exclusive Color-Match Heat-Sealed Webbing
  • 9 standard colors (custom colors also available)

Color Matched Pool Cover Webbing

Our exclusive color matched webbings are an aesthetically pleasing option and are even longer lasting than white webbing due to color pigments that reduce UV light exposure to the fabric.

Exclusive Heat Sealed Pool Cover Webbing

Exclusive-Heat-Sealed-WebbingMost automatic safety pool cover manufacturers wrap webbing material around rope and sew it to the cover. Unfortunately, with this attachment method the webbings often fail before the fabric does. (see photo, far right). To solve this problem we invented and patented a process whereby the rope is replaced with a flexible polymer bead and the webbing is heat seal bonded to the cover fabric in one step. This patented process is a substantial improvement over the common webbing attachment method and provides substantially longer webbing life and improved operation of the cover.
