Pool covers conforming to AFNOR standards for swimming pool security in
Shown above - summer pool cover for heat retention and winter pool cover.
The greatest heat loss from a swimming pool is from its surface due to evaporation.
Swimming pool covers reduce evaporation loss and thereby can increase the length of the
pool season. They also help to keep the pool clean, which further reduces the need for high
levels of chemicals and further lowers both costs and maintenance.
A summer cover is used purely for heat retention.
A roller ensures ease of application and removal. It is reasonable to expect a 3 degree
Centigrade increase in heat retention with the use of a summer pool cover overnight.
Winter swimming pool covers provide protection from debris during the winter months.
The winter pool cover is laid on at the end of season and remains in situ until you are ready
to open the pool again for the coming season. A roller is not required.
The winter pool cover is attached by stainless steel pegs to the pool surround and comes
complete with attachments and stainless steel fixings for terracing.

Safety pool covers
Safety covers are altogether different from the above swimming pool covers. A safety cover
negates the need for fencing or pool alarm. It is a complete cover and will provide some heat
retention during the summer.

security standards in France.
Lie on pool covers seem expensive at first, but when compared with price of fencing,
installation of fencing, together with summer and winter covers, the comparison is of little
