Automatic Retractable Swimming Pool Enclosures

Not all retractable pool enclosures or telescopic pool enclosures are not created equally. COVERS in Play pool enclosures are the most current, state of the art architectural products of its kind. They are the only automatic, electrically operated, retractable pool enclosure system in the world.

Our indoor outdoor pool enclosures have been engineered with all the features in mind, not as an afterthought. The aluminum extrusion patented assembly is a streamlines structural design so that a clean, lean look is obtained with no additional trusses or supports. No structural members are left obscuring the view when retracted.

Lightweight aluminum extrusions, twin wall polycarbonate roof panels and clear acrylic side wall panels are manufactured with stainless steel hardware into panel sections that form moveable bays. The bays are designed to slide under each other, resting together at one end of the retractable pool enclosure. Or, the enclosures can be arranged to open in the middle with the bays moving towards both ends if desired. The end and side walls can incorporate doors and windows as desired. A pool enclosure can be built to attach to an existing building or made as a free standing structure, if desired. Fixed or operable. Lean to style as well. They can also be configured as a skylight or operable retractable roof.

Unlike other older manual systems, COVERS in Play pool enclosure system has been specifically engineered with an automatic electric retraction system. Most systems need to be pulled and pushed by hand, usually with two individuals, one on each side of the telescopic pool enclosure, to close and open. They require each bay section to be moved individually and can be very challenging, as well the time usually taking 10 to 15 minutes or so, depending on the number of bays and size. COVERS in Play overcome these drawbacks with automation, retractable pool enclosures that can be configured with larger moveable bays. Quiet smooth retraction motion is achieved with our patented electric drive system. The maintenance free drive system operates with tracks flush with the deck, without risk of becoming a tripping hazard. The controls are designed for failsafe operation and function to prevent damage or injury should a person, pet or other object approach the track when in motion. Moving at approx. 20’ per minute, the entire automatic pool enclosure can be effortlessly closed or opened in two or three minutes or less, depending on the size.

Retractable Pool Enclosure with no cross bracing Retractable Pool Enclosure Patent frame for heavy snow

The enclosure system has been designed specifically to enclose an outdoor indoor pool area (indoor outdoor pool enclosure), as well as patios areas and practically any outdoor space and there is nothing in the enclosure system that will mould, rust, rot, or corrode, so that no dehumidification system is necessary. Structurally, it has been designed specifically for the heaviest winter snow loads and wind loads. The system is built and designed for each specific installation location and designed to withstand up to well over 100 mph winds where required. Unlike the other systems, where snow is required to be removed by the owner after each snow fall, the COVERS in Play enclosures will withstand any snow load. No manual snow removal is necessary. Never. And every COVERS in Play pool enclosure comes with a 20 year warranty.

One overriding feature that is built into all COVERS in Play enclosures is quality design and manufacturing, installation and assembly employed. Every pool enclosure is pre-manufactured in our plant. Everything is punched, cut, notched and holes drilled. There is no metal frame cutting on site. No shavings, no mess on site. The enclosure system has been designed for easy, fast assembly on-site and as a result usually can be assembled in a matter of days for smaller units, usually only about a week or so, depending on size, complexity and configuration of the enclosure.

COVERS in Play has designed operable pool enclosure system based on how an telescopic pool enclosure would be used, the number of times it will be opened or closed in a given day, electrically, with unobstructed clear views for all year round use and enjoyment of the enclosed area. It has also been engineered and designed in consideration of where the automatic pool enclosure would be installed, whether in mild climates or in very cold snowy locations, and of course for windy locations that required higher design loading requirements. Below are features listed that are unique to COVERS in Play and are only found in our retractable roofs and pool enclosures:
