Foam Heat Retention Covers
Certikin foam heat retention covers are manufactured from a closed-cell PE foam. Our 6mm thermalux is suitable for all heat retention purposes on pools run up to 30OC and benefits from a laminated underside and a strong woven polyethylene top coat making it extremely hard wearing.The density of the material helps to keep light penetration to a minimum and therefore reduces algae growth.
New for 2014, our popular 6mm foam is now available with a solid white surface and joined with a matching solid white joint tape. The crisp white finish is ideal for blending with spas, white tiles and lighter coloured pool surrounds – or just to stand out! Overall performance of the cover is exactly the same as the traditional full blue foam.
Of course the main purpose of a heat retention cover is to limit heat loss and this is where foam covers come into their element – a good fitting and correctly used 6mm foam cover will eliminate heat loss by 85-90%, significantly reducing running costs and offering a very quick payback period (retention and payback
will differ from site to site).
Due to the nature of these materials and the manufacturing process, some creasing of the top coat can be present (especially on hemmed covers) and the cover may not lie perfectly flat – covers are rolled, not folded, for dispatch in order to eliminate these where possible.
Unless requested otherwise at time of order, all 6mm foam covers will be made approximately 30mm narrower than pool width to allow ease of movement on and off the pool.Covers over 10.5m in length will be seamed across the width of the cover. Covers at or over 100m2 cannot be hemmed.
