Covrex Slatted Pool Covers

This advanced technology is the result of intensive research and over 40 years of experience in the field of plastic materials.

Their professional team realised in early 2000 that none of the traditional pool covers on the market responded to the increasing customer need and demand for ecological and economical solutions.

For this reason they developed and patented (with a world wide patent) a new highly insulating pool cover, that differentiates itself from traditional pool covers by the fact that the slats are solid (instead of classic hollow slats).


The main advantage of solid slats is that they allow Covrex® pool covers to keep the heat in the pool; the slats have a thermal conductivity of 0.12. Heating up swimming pools, even with solar power, makes no sense if the warmth is not kept inside the pool when the sun is not shining, or the heat source is turned off.

Covrex® slats allow you the benefit from your pool during a longer season, and minimizes heat losses during nights and cold days.

Covrex slatted swimming pool coverRESISTANCE

Research carried out over a period of more than 3 years has produced a technology offering all-year-round weather resistance:

Unlike the traditional covers, which are damaged by hailstorms and frost, Covrex® covers are 100% hail- and frost-resistant (under warranty). Furthermore, thanks to the materials used, Covrex® pool covers withstand the most extreme winter temperatures, all the way down to -40C while maintaining their flexibility.

This allows users to leave their Covrex® cover on their pool during the entire winter, without having to add an extra protection on top, and without having to decrease water level. While traditional covers warp under high temperatures, the materials used in the new Covrex® covers mean that they will not lose their shape in temperatures of up to 100C.

What’s more in the autumn season when leaves and dirt can get between the slats in your cover no longer present any problems with Covrex®. Thanks to profiles with flexible seams, there are no gaps between the slats, which prevents any build-up of dirt.


One of the aims of Covrex® is to offer maximum safety.

The Covrex® pool covers have been developed on the basis of the strict French safety standards NF P90-308, relating to pool covers, with which they are fully compliant.

Covrex® pool covers are perfectly safe for children, and even adults, to stand and walk on when installed with a handrail or ledge.
