Automatic Safety Cover

Child proof, energy saving & reduces the amount of maintenance you need to do in order to keep your pool sparkling

Automated swimming pool covers for safety and temperature control.
Childproof, less water maintenance, reduction in water and heat loss.

Child Safety

Cape Pool Cover covers provide peace of mind when children are present by being able to support the weight of a youngster, thus preventing potential accidents.

Energy Saving

Reduction in water & heat loss

Swimming pools lose their heat during the night by radiation. During the day evaporation, further enhanced by wind, causes further cooling of the water. Our covers counteract these effects by virtually eliminating evaporation as well as providing an insulated cover.

Less Maintenance

Algae growth requires sunlight which is blocked out by our automated covers. Therefore, fewer chemicals are required to keep the water crystal-clear.

Indoor Pool Covers

Reduce indoor humidity

Indoor pools create a substantial amount of humidity which requires the use of costly de-humidifiers. These are made redundant by our covers.

Product Specifications

PVC profiles

This option is the most cost effective. The PVC profiles are imported from Europe and represent the best quality product available in the market. The material is expected to last about 15 years or possibly longer, depending on the amount of exposure to the sun and harsh chemicals.
Colours: light grey, white, sand, light blue, dark blue

Polycarbonate profiles

Non-Solar: this option is significantly more costly than the PVC slats. This material has a superior finish, is aesthetically more pleasing and is expected to last longer for approximately 20 years.
Colours: clear transparent, blue transparent

Solar: the solar option of this material actually heats up the pool and replaces roof-mounted solar heating systems and / or heat pumps.
Colours: clear solar, blue solar, green solar

Covrex profiles

This option is the most expensive. The slats are fully foam filled and thereby significantly stronger. They do not require any endcaps and can hence be shaped to suit any curved pool edge seamlessly.
Colours: cream white, steel grey, silex grey, sky blue


The automation of Cape Pool Cover covers is achieved by the use of tubular motors that are housed inside the shafts onto which the covers roll. The motors are custom manufactured for CAPE POOL COVER to the highest standards. They run off 24V DC for safety reasons. The motors are connected to a control box which includes the transformer as well as a PLC for programmable limits. These control boxes are locally manufactured out of robust components in order to accommodate an unreliable and fluctuating power supply.

CAPE POOL COVER covers can be operated by remote control, wall mounted switch, key switch, integrated to home automation, or any combination of the above.

Cover Operation

Slatted pool covers float on the water surface and hence do not require any tracks in which to run. The slats consist of hollow profiles that are hermetically sealed on either end. The buoyancy of a cover is sufficient to support the weight of a toddler. However, we always recommend designing a side recess into newly constructed pools at water level in which the cover floats. For existing pools, we recommend fitting a stainless-steel handrail just below the water level. With these additional supports in place, the cover can then support heavier weights, including an average size adult.
