Our “Astraeus” electric and electro-hydraulic safety covers are the ultimate in terms of ease of use. Twist the security key one way to open the cover, twist it the other to close.
For small and medium-size pools the electric version is simplest and best. For larger pools, where greater torque (pulling power) is required, electro-hydraulic performs better. For both types of cover you will need to provide an electric supply close to the location of the switch which operates the roller mechanism.
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 cover can be housed within an aluminium or wooden box.
The anodised alloy tracks have a smooth, rounded, 16mm high profile and are installed either side of the pool, on top of the deck. For extra cost, in-ground recessed tracks are available; these are just 1-2mm above the surrounding deck.
