The invisible manhole cover
The cover of the floor channel with an automatic hinged cover is the most elegant method of covering the floor channel, which housed the slatted cover with the roll-up mechanism. The hinged cover can e.g. be tiled over on-site allowing it to blend in with the rest of the pool lining. Thanks to the fully automatic control, the hinged cover is automatically opened when the cover is closed freeing the path of the slatted cover to the water surface. Conversely, when the slatted cover is opened, the hinged cover is automatically closed as soon as the cover is completely rolled up. The hinged cover also allows pools with special contours to be fitted with a slatted cover, since the roll-up mechanism can be positioned at the widest point of the pool. The small gap of the hinged cover offers a high degree of safety, as there are no openings which can accommodate fingers.
The hinged cover is essentially a two-part cover consisting of a fixed and a movable part.
The fixed part consists of a stainless steel grate, which is either clad with plastic elements or fitted with a stainless steel sump, which is tiled over on-site.
The movable part (the actual cover) can also be clad with plastic profiles or fitted with a stainless steel sump, which is tiled over on-site.
