Make the most of your outdoor swimming pool and enjoy it year round. Swimming pools are great for home, camping park, or anywhere people gather. But getting the full use of a pool by enclosing it with Telescopic Pool Enclosures increases the use up to 4 times. You can open it up to enjoy the sun when the weather is great and keep it close when it’s not. Having a motorized pool enclosure allows anyone to open or close the enclosure for any reason, weather, bugs, rain, snow or winds. You don’t need two individuals strong and ready at your service. Being strong and able is required for standard enclosures that rely on brute strength and balance.
Most pool enclosures have no automation available and require brute strength to open or close. In fact only one company manufactures automatic pool enclosures with a patented drive system. So for the other enclosures on the market you need to pay attention to the dirt and debris that can build up on the tracks requires more and more effort to open them until you just can’t push it any more. At higher traffic areas such as; beach farm trail, camping park or public pools will increase the amount of debris collecting around the tracks. So on these pool enclosures you must ensure the tracks are clean and dirt free constantly, but even then it’s a losing battle until the unit just stays closed and you now owe a fixed unit, it’s no longer a retractable pool enclosure. The benefit of enjoying the fresh air and direct warm sun is no more. With it being closed the heat during the summer months will make it hard to enjoy sitting on the patio or swimming in the pool, even if all the doors and windows are open.
That is why automation is required for pool enclosures design that includes a sweeping system build in to push the dirt and debris out of the way and off the tracks. So you always enjoy the fresh air whenever you want. No need to call the neighbours or a friend to enjoy some down time sitting around you pool on a nice sunny day.
Not only having a sweeper built in to your swimming pool enclosure is critical but the size and type of wheels is also critical. Small wheels require more effort to push. Wheels made from stainless steel are good for corrosion resistance but galling will damage the wheels over time if the track is also stainless steel. As a rule stainless wheels on stainless is not recommended. But stainless wheels on aluminum tracks are also not good. With stainless wheels being harder than aluminum will wear the tracks prematurely over time. The best type of wheel is polyurethane (4610) on an aluminum track. But of course the wheels should be the correct size, a diameter of 5” is recommended for a typical patio or pool enclosure unit.
Also the pool enclosure wheels should have tapered wheel bearings not needle bearings. This may sound trivial, but proper engineering and selection of the correct materials and components can make all the difference. Tapered wheel bearings cost more but are required for side loading from the enclosure.
So when considering pool enclosures consider the benefit of automation at your finger tips with push button controls.
