When the time comes to invest in a pool cover that will properly protect your pool and inground pool liner, there are a number of choices to consider. Since it is a significant investment, you want to ensure that it lasts for years to come. LOOP-LOC pool covers are both durable and long-lasting. Read on to find out how these safety covers are built to last.
All of our pool safety covers meet and exceed ASTM standards for Safety Swimming Pool Covers F 1346-91. In addition, they have undergone extensive outside testing through Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) and have earned the U.L. seal of approval for safety swimming pool covers.
We also use extremely strong, quality materials when we design and manufacture our covers. Our mesh covers are made with an ultra-strong, super dense material that blocks virtually all sunlight while still allowing rain and melting snow to easily drain through. Our virtually solid mesh safety cover uses a light-blocking fabric that deters algae growth and drains lightning-quick. Additionally, our solid cover is constructed of a premium coated vinyl material with enhanced, 100 percent rip-stop scrim—which bounces back better and drains super-fast. Our covers are known as “The ELEPHANT™ Cover” because our mesh safety pool cover is strong enough to support the weight of an elephant, as seen in our advertisements.
Our pool covers are supported with high-quality materials. They are sewn with a polyester bonded thread that is 30 percent stronger in thread size—producing a higher margin of safety in all seams. Double perimeter webbing and double-thick straps also give the covers an incredibly high break strength. Plus, extremely high-strength, non-corrosive type 302 grade stainless steel springs are used for superior weight-bearing capacity. Plus, the large X-tacking on LOOP-LOC straps is sewn manually for precise placement and maximum strength. The chafe strips are manufactured with exclusively virgin material—not "regrind"—which tends to stain decking. Non-corrosive aluminum tips are double-notched for stability.
These covers are also trademarked and patented. LOOP-LOC pool covers come with the CABLE-LOC™ and patented GAPGUARD® Child Safety Intrusion Barriers, Protect-A-Gap®, and Aqua-Loc® zipper treatment. Treatments such as these close the dangerous gaps created where raised obstructions meet the cover’s edge—ensuring that neither children or pets can slip through.
These covers also cover pools with amenities such as raised decks, steps, tanning ledges, waterfalls, rock treatments, and raised spas—further protecting your investment. There is no need to use a two-cover treatment. Dirt and debris will not enter the pool thanks to the treatments used by LOOP-LOC that close the gaps, making it impossible for someone or something to gain access to the water’s edge.
As if all these reasons weren’t enough to guarantee a long-lasting cover, LOOP-LOC swimming pool safety covers are so durable that they are backed by a 15-year pro-rated warranty. This not only gives pool owners peace of mind that they have made a wise investment, it also may reduce their homeowner’s liability insurance.
