Coverstar Automatic Covers systems come in three different types, Underguide, Recessed Topguide and Deckmount. The system type that is used will depend on the shape of the pool and the location of the cover track. Let's look at these three different options:
An underguide cover system provides an attractive and effective solution for rectangular pools. The entire motorized drive mechanism is mounted below the deck and sliders through aluminum tracks that are mounted along the side of the pool underneath the coping. This conceals the track and allows it to be virtually unnoticed.
For a more integrated look, encapsulation can be mounted directly to the pool wall during the construction of the pool. The coping is then poured over the top of the encapsulation, locking it in place. The encapsulation includes a channel where the cover track will be inserted during the installation of the cover system. This method allows the cover track to be built back into the wall of the pool.
The cover housing can be covered using lids that are aluminum, or in order to blend in with the surrounding pool area, they can be stone or concrete.
