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.
The standard Underguide is mounted to the bottom side of rectangular pools cantilevered coping.
For a more integrated look, guides can be built directly into the pool wall using guide encapsulation.
The 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.
This 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.
A 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.
Using 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.
