Astraeus Automatic Cover
DESCRIPTION: Our “Astraeus” electro-hydraulic safety cover is the ultimate in terms of ease of use. Twist the operating lever one way to open the cover, twist it the other way to close – what could be simpler?
The Astraeus cover operates hydraulically, which means that all electrics are housed well away from the pool – an important safety feature. Not all covers work this way and many electric covers are not compliant with EU safety regulations.
Electro-hydraulic mechanisms have greater torque (pulling power) than simple electric units – an important consideration if the pool is 9 x 4.5m or larger. Electro-hydraulic mechanisms also offer greater long-term reliability; covers actuated solely by electric motor often fail during the first three years of operation.
The Astraeus operating mechanism and roller can be installed below ground (new pools with pit) or above ground (existing pools). When installed above ground, the mechanism and roller can be concealed within a wooden box.
The anodised alloy tracks have a smooth, rounded, 16mm high profile and can be installed on top of the deck, recessed into the deck, or inside the pool.
- Astraeus automatic covers can be installed on skimmer, overflow and infinity (vanishing edge) pools.
- The mechanism and roller can be installed below ground (new pools) or above ground (existing pools).
