Swimroll pool covers are constructed of high-grade PVC or Polycarbonate extrusions, which interlock tongue in groove. The panels are hollow to ensure high buoyancy floatation and insulation to the pool water. Completely sealed, the panels create a floating floor on the surface of the water. The panels are fitted well in to the internal shape of the pool and in some instances, can be adapted to suit varied pool shapes. Pool owners using the cover as an additional safety barrier will have the cover floating above a specially constructed safety ledge 50 mm wide (in new pools). A stainless steel safety handrail can be installed into existing pools to provide the same benefits.

The Swimroll Automated Pool Covers rolls onto the pool fully motorised. The press of a button, flick of a switch or turn of a key triggers it.



Swimroll Automated Pool Covers can be located below or above ground. The below ground installation provides the perfect aesthetic, totally concealing the device when not in use and maintaining the design integrity of the pool. If located above ground, several alternatives are available to the pool owner. The cover can be mounted on a stylish slim-line stainless steel roller housing or as some architects have done, designed planter boxes to house the device and provide planting area for shrubs and flowers. If the Swimroll pool cover is specified prior to pool construction, requirements for its underground housing will be provided to the pool builder or architect.

Pool Problems & Swimroll Pool Covers Solutions

Indoor Pools

The common problems associated with indoor pools are:

1. Pool running costs are very high! They are always heated. Without a good pool-cover, elaborate ventilation systems are required to maintain comfortable climatic conditions. With a Swimroll Pool Cover installed, room heating and ventilation is almost superfluous. Without evaporation, the humidity level is dramatically reduced. Swimroll Pool Covers reduce energy expenditure by approximately 80%.

2. Building maintenance: Costs are very high due to the rapid deterioration caused by condensation (where the heated water causes moisture accumulation on all surfaces colder than the water temperature). Corrosion of metals, rotting timber and rising damp are all side effects of indoor pool condensation. Swimroll Pool Covers insulate against heat loss, eliminates evaporation and condensation completely. There are no associated problems once the Swimroll Pool Cover is in place.

Outdoor Pools

The common problems associated with outdoor pools are:

1. Pool Safety - fences can be climbed, gates left open. Swimroll Pool Covers provide an impenetrable surface when operated according to the manufacturer's instructions. When fully closed, the pool cover can sustain the weight of approximately 80 kilos. Swimroll Pool Covers remain buoyant and, with the safety handrail or integrated safety ledge in place, nothing can slip between the side of the pool and the internal wall of the pool*.

* In New Zealand at this time Swimroll Automated Pool Cover Systems do not replace the need for a security fence around your pool. Parental supervision is always recommended for children in the vicinity of any body of water. Swimroll is not to be relied upon as a safety cover.

2. Pool Maintenance
Leaves, dirt and debris - Cost time and money to remove and constantly clean. Swimroll Pool Covers provide a solid surface to the pool that prevent leaves, twigs and falling branches from entering the pool water. The tight fitting Swimroll Pool Cover traps all dirt and debris that lands on the cover when closed which is then fed into the skimmer boxes when the pool cover retracts – Swimroll Pool Covers clean themselves!

Heat, Water & Chemical loss
Swimming Pools require constant heating. Most private pools stand idle for at least 23 hours per day. This is where the unprotected pool evaporates your budget unnecessarily. Swimroll Pool Covers fit your pool perfectly. Swimroll Pool Covers insulate against heat loss saving up to 80% of heating energy, and many m3 of water. Swimroll Pool Covers prevent chemical evaporation from the water, maintaining more consistent chemical readings and ensuring lowest possible chemical consumption and cost. Swim Roll's range of designer colours includes "Swimroll Solar Black Profile". The Swimroll Solar Black profile captures the heat of the sun within their internal structure replacing the need for solar heating and almost totally eliminating heat loss! The installation of a Swimroll Automated Pool Cover System translates into huge heating bill reductions, and more environmentally friendly operation of your pool.

Swimroll Installation
Each Swimroll Pool Cover is individually made and fitted according to the final laser-light pool measurement. As such, Swimroll is customised to the particular pool and adjustments are made at installation to ensure a smooth and easy fit.

Swimroll Colours
Swimroll Pool Covers are available in seven colours; Aquatic Blue, Rock Grey, Pebble-stone, Limestone Yellow, White, Solar Black Polycarbonate and Clear Polycarbonate.
