POOLLOCK’S SOLID SAFETY BARRIERS Due to their many years of experience designing and producing automatic covers, PoolLock is able to work with domestic customers and architects to create tailored solutions to cover almost any kind of pool. The company’s unique hydraulic-drive system means that the customer does not need any electrical components near the pool. The electrical power pack used to operate the cover and drive the two hydraulic motors can be placed as far from the pool as required. Opening and closing the pool is as easy as turning a key switch, which means that the cover (and the pool) are actually used once installed. PoolLock safety covers provide a solid barrier between the water and surrounding area, effectively preventing any access to the water and making them some of the safest covers on the market. In addition, all PoolLock covers will reduce the amount of heat, water and chemicals lost through evaporation, which means pool owners can save money on electricity and chemical usage. In addition to the standard fabric options, PoolLock also offers HeatLock Thermofoam canvas with enhanced insulation properties. Thanks to the foamed insulation layer applied to one side of the canvas, heat transfer across the membrane is reduced by a factor of 3 when compared to standard fabrics for similar applications. HeatLock’s closed-cell foam structure ensure that PoolLock covers are not only the safest, but also the most energy-efficient available on the market. PoolLock Automatic Covers offer customers the safest, most convenient, most reliable and energy-efficient way to cover the pool. With over 30 years of experience, and installations in over 20 countries, PoolLock is one of the world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of automatic safety and slatted covers for swimming pools.

COVREX® SOLAR AND COVLOCK ENHANCE THE FAIRLOCKS RANGE Available from Fairlocks Pool Products, the Covrex® Solar automatic swimming pool cover can offer increased energy efficiencies for a domestic pools through the use of innovative solar technology. The thermal specifications increase heat conductivity from the sun to the water to retain the temperature, meaning a pool equipped with a Covrex® Solar cover solution needs much less energy than a traditional cover to heat the pool water. Installing a solar cover like this can provide substantial cost savings in terms of heating, plus the level of pool water evaporation is decreased and there is a reduction in the use of chemical products and maintenance needed too. The covers are constructed using superior materials and they demonstrate substantial quality for both existing pools and new builds. Covrex® Solar slats are produced in polycarbonate, which makes them much more resistant to shocks or hail and generally more long-lasting than traditional PVC slats. Covrex® Solar slats have a clever anti-algae structure directly integrated in the slat profile which makes sure the cover stays clean for a longer period. Its specific structure prevents UV sun rays to enter the hollow

chambers, and therefore reduces the speed of algae creation. The silver finishing coating will ensure condensation inside the slats is almost invisible. New for the 2021 season, Fairlocks have also introduced CovLock – an automatic cover that combines comfort and safety. This cover is completely waterproof around the whole cover perimeter, so any pool will stay clean in summer and winter alike. Made in France, each CovLock is completely automatic and is fully compliant with the NF P 90-308 Standard (tested by LNE). Four types of rails suitable for all pool types are available with four track options, automatic hydraulic motors, plus a choice of seven colours.
