Keeping kids and pets safe while the pool is not in use is one of the biggest challenges facing adults with swimming pools at home. Fortunately, there are many ways to protect them, such as an alarm system that will alert you when something falls into the water. Another effective way to safeguard your family, friends, and pets when you are not using your pool is to use a swimming pool safety cover. LOOP-LOC’s pool covers meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) safety standards and have many outstanding features.
ASTM standards mandate that safety pool covers can hold a minimum of 485 pounds per five square feet. LOOP-LOC pool covers are also known as “The ELEPHANT™ Cover” because the mesh cover is strong enough to support the weight of an elephant, as seen on their advertisements! The super dense mesh is made with 100 percent polypropylene—which blocks virtually all sunlight—while still allowing rain and melting snow to easily drain through. Double-perimeter webbing and double-thick straps give these covers incredibly high break strength. The company also takes an extra safety step, sewing the webbing to the cover using a contrasting white thread instead of black. This ensures that not a single stitch is missed. LOOP-LOC also hand sews the large X-tacking on the straps for precise placement and maximum strength.
LOOP-LOC covers are secured to your pool deck using heavy-duty, non-corrosive, type 302 grade stainless steel springs to further allow for superior weight-bearing accuracy. They use brass anchors that recess flush with the deck when the cover is removed. Together, these elements put a “lock” on your pool that will prevent children and pets from gaining access. And when the company discovered that regrind material can stain decking, they decided to manufacture the cover’s chafe strips with exclusively virgin material.
To further safeguard your pool, they developed the CABLE-LOC™, and patented GAPGUARD® and PROTECT-A-GAP™ Child Safety Intrusion Barriers, as well as the Aqua-Loc® zipper treatment. These four features close the gap created when a pool includes raised obstructions that are located at the cover’s edge.
If you prefer a solid safety cover rather than a mesh cover, the LOOP-LOC ULTRA-LOC III Solid Safety Cover is a strong, tough solid safety pool cover that combines the lightweight nature of a mesh pool cover with the light-blocking benefits of a solid cover. It has a mesh drainage panel so water will bound off the surface—keeping it puddle-free.
These quality features make these covers the ideal choice as an added measure to protect your pool from children and pets entering the pool when you are not using it. LOOP-LOC manufactures these covers in the United States in their 200,000-square foot manufacturing facility. And, rest assured that their exclusive computer-aided design will guarantee a perfect, custom fit for any shape or size pool. Use one of the LOOP-LOC pool safety covers for complete peace of mind!
