Plastipack’s pool cover materials are available with the standard 12mm Bubble or GeoBubble™ technology. Both bubble designs are available in a range of thicknesses and colours.
CoolGuard™ is a 500 micron swimming pool
cover material. The light blue top surface provides a high reflective quality
that minimises the heat being absorbed and transferred into the pool through
the material. The opaque underside shades the water from the suns energy
preventing solar gain keeping the pool a refreshing temperature.
The EnergyGuard™ selective transmission 500 micron material
consists of a clear top surface and a midnight blue bubble layer. This
midnight blue layer has the ability to selectively absorb and transmit
different areas of the solar spectrum. Allowing the material to absorb
solar energy used in photosynthesis and pass this to the pool through
conduction, while transmitting inferred wavelengths through the material
to heat the water directly. Offering optimized solar gain and algae
inhibition, the EnergyGuard™ material effectively delivers the best
possible balance between solar heat gain, chemical and filtration
The Sol+Guard™ 500 micron transparent swimming pool material transmits 80% of the suns energy in the visual and IR spectrum through the material to heat the water and basin of the swimming pool. Tests in the UK have shown temperature increase of up to 6˚C and testimonials from hotter climates estimate up to 8˚C above the ambient uncovered pool temperatures, reducing the heating demand by up to 70%.
