how do slat covers work?

Slat covers consists of a series of hollow PVC. extrusions. Each slat is sealed to trap a pocket of air which acts as a thermal barrier, insulating your pool. As the cover unrolls, the air trapped in the leading slats makes them float. As more slats are unrolled, they push the leading slats down the length of the pool. The slatted cover floats on the surface and fits snugly under the coping surrounds of the swimming pool.

The slats are joined together using a unique hinge connection, so the cover can flex as it is wound onto the roller. The roller system can either be submerged or above ground.

Built-in limit settings automatically prevent the cover from going out too far onto the pool or retracting too far back onto the roller.

where can you use our slatted pool covers?

  • Residential pools
  • Commercial pools
  • New and existing pools. However, this is subject to the shape of your pool.

slat colours

In the Opaque PVC Slat, we stock just the grey. This enables us to increase our buying volumes and keep costs down. We can, however, source other colours for both PVC and Polycarbonate slats. For these non-stocked slats, there is likely to be an additional cost and longer lead time.

We can install automatic pool covers in new and existing pools. Just ask.

pit configurations

In these configurations, the cover disappears completely into a flooded alcove, so there is no impact on the aesthetics of the pool when it is in use. The cover system is accessible from the top to allow for easy maintenance and cleaning.

If you’re unsure, the team at BMH Pools can help you decide which automatic pool cover is right for your needs.
