The translucent slats allow underwater lighting to shine through. The PC60 polycarbonate slats are available in solar, crystal clear or aluminium look.

SCP OFFERS STYLISH, EUROPEAN COMPLIANCE WITH ABRIBLUE Distributed in the UK by SCP, there is an efficient, sustainable and safe cover solution in compliance with the French Norm NF P 90-308 – the range produced by Abriblue. To give a general overview of the safety requirements introduced by standard NF P 90-308, these are the main points which mean that a cover can be considered as a ‘safety cover’: • The cover must be constructed as to prevent a child under the age of five falling into the water plus a child must not be able to get underneath the cover • The cover must be able to withstand the weight of a 100 kg adult • The systems of fastening the cover onto the pool deck must not be liable to injure or cause a child to fall • The cover must not cause any injury to a child trying to manipulate it • For automatic slatted covers, the starter system must be lockable and child-proof. Three of their popular models are the OPEN AERO, OPEN SOLAR 2 and IMM’AX Cover. The OPEN AERO connected automatic cover is more than a safety cover.

It is a compact deck solution to secure a pool and needs eight hours of sunlight to fully charge the batteries. Lastly, there’s the IMM’AX Cover – a motorised, submerged slatted cover providing the ideal balance between safety, functionality, discretion and aesthetics. This automatic safety cover has axial motorisation and features NON’CO material and electronic endstop sensors. This cover is controllable from a smartphone too.

UPGRADE SAFETY AND STYLE WITH DEL FROM GOLDEN COAST Customers can now choose colours that suit their pool thanks to the ever-popular range of DEL automatic pool cover systems — available exclusively in the UK from Golden Coast. DEL covers can be made from either opaque PVC slats, which come in grey, white, beige or blue; or from solar polycarbonate slats, which are available in six colours. These use the sun’s rays to heat a pool effectively, enabling the owner to reduce their dependency on electric heating. As the latest addition to the range, the DEL Tixit automatic pool cover has already made a big impact on the market. It is designed with elegant, modern end stands to ensure that the pool cover easily integrates with surroundings, and is available in solar and electric variations. The electric models even feature LED lights and built-in Bluetooth speakers, so owners can bring the party to their pool. DEL Tixit end-stands are available in

Automatic options are a great choice for domestic pools, saving their owners both time and effort in terms of maintenance, plus they make opening and closing the pool as simple as pushing a button” www.swimmingpoolnews.co.uk 61-62+65-66_SPN_April_2021_Automatic_Covers.indd 65

The cover can be remotely operated by the wireless Wi-key control box, which is password protected to stop unauthorised access. Covers can be retrofitted to pools of 2.5m x 3m up to 5m x 13.5m. “Most importantly, a DEL pool cover will make the pool area safer, as it can be opened or closed in minutes and for extra security customers can add locking kits,” explained Adam Clark, Sales Director at Golden Coast. “But that doesn’t mean safe can’t also be stylish. Innovative DEL covers like the Tixit can be customised to suit individual tastes to ensure that they fit with the overall look of the pool area.” All DEL pool covers are highly resistant to impact, scratches, heat and UV light and meet standard NF P 90-308.
