Summer is Here, Well Almost!!

It’s the middle of April and we can sit around the pool and go for a swim outdoors as if it is the middle of Summer.  The temperature is 72F or 20C outside, not hot by any stretch of the imagination but it’s the first time we can enjoy a warm breeze in our bathing suits for 2016.  Now if you live down south that is not a problem most of the time.  Only last week it was snowing and they are predicting snow later this week again, but that does not matter enjoy it while you can!

With a pool enclosure you can swim year round regardless of the weather no matter where you live in USA or  Canada.  You don’t even need to close the pool down.  It’s just like an indoor pool.  However, with a retractable pool enclosure you can open it and enjoy the warm outdoor air regardless the time of year.  Even in April or if you are really lucky and you get a few warm days in March.  With the Covers in Play retractable pool enclosure you just need to push a button.  With Covers in Play patent drive system it opens without pushing or pulling.  Don’t need to get all worked up moving your Enclosure.

Of course the weatherman was right and it snowed a few days later just a bit, but nothing to write home about, more wet snow that didn’t stay.  However, that didn’t matter with the spring sun shining it warmed the enclosure right up to the point we had to open the windows to cool it off.  The only problem you think it is summer and get a quick reminder when you step outside.

Bigger is Better

Covers in Play Enclosures  are getting bigger and bigger.  Over the years our clients are requesting larger and larger Enclosures.  Size is not a problem for Covers in Play since our patent design is scalable to almost any size.   The limitation is only your imagination.

Large Pool Enclosure

Large Pool Enclosure

Covers in Play started with the goal to be the best. With our engineering firm Palladium we analyzed existing products on the market, sun rooms, curtain wall systems and with our experience from other engineering fields such as nuclear, machine design and consumer products developed truly aesthetically pleasing Pool Enclosures that are stronger, build better and have a patented features.

Lean To Enclosure with Style

No cross bracing or doubling up of supports. Allowing for a clear unobstructed view.

Pushing Pool Enclosures, not us. We drive cars now, not horse and buggy so why would anyone want to push a building around. Not Covers in Play. That is why we continued to apply our engineering expertise and pushed forward developing our patented drive system to move these aesthetically pleasing Pool Enclosures. No manual pushing, No slipping and falling. Only need to push a button to move our Pool Enclosures, except if you want to push it.

Roof Enclosures

We frequently get asked how wide are your Enclosures and do you have retractable roofs. The answer to both these questions is what size do you need and yes we do. Our latest project in Utah is a retractable roof enclosure that is 63 feet wide that was designed to match the profile of the existing building. Using our patented framing and drive system our retractable roof enclosure opens with a push of a button, just like our regular enclosures, to enjoy the southern Utah air and admire the mountains.

Lifting End Wall of Roof Enclosure in Place

This project allows Covers in Play to show our engineer expertise in design and build of large retractable enclosures for any building or location. Controlling your environment with the latest technology by retracting the roof allows you to be completely outside when the weather is nice, and when it’s not, no problem just push the button and you are back indoors.

This project required the use of a crane to lift the pre-assembled bays in place on the top of the 10’ walls. Due to the large span and height of the roof enclosure the bays were assembled beside the final roof enclosure location taking advantage of ground level and the necessary equipment.

End Wall of Enclosure Roof

End Wall in Place

With the very high winds in southern Utah our roof enclosure and the end bay in particular required extra attention. The large end wall span acts like a kite on those windy days and needed reinforcing inside our framing structure as well on the exterior. These exterior framing supports are in line with the vertical mullions and painted to match the color of the roof enclosure. So strength and beauty are maintained.

Covers in Play Sponsors World Triathlon Grand Final Edmonton 2014

On Tuesday August 26th, Mayor Don Iveson was working up a sweat as he welcomed the TransCanada Corp. World Triathlon Grand Final to Edmonton. The weeklong event will be a far cry from the 2001 ITU World Triathlon Championship, as it was known then.

Triathlon was just starting to emerge in the international sporting conscience, and Edmonton was the first host following its debut at the 2000 Olympics. Edmonton 2014 expects upward of 5,000 athletes, with the event beamed to a worldwide TV audience of 21 million in 160 countries.

Collapsible Enclosures: Even when you don’t want it to be!

Every storm brings in calls from across the country of failed Enclosures to Covers in Play. Some Enclosures fail within months, others last a year or two. Some fail from snow or ice. Others just blow away. Our enclosures have been manufactured so that clients can escape into a world of luxury and experience the best of both worlds, enjoying life inside and out. Our retractable design enables customers to swim year around, whether under a burden of sparkling snow or enjoying the sweet summer sun, our retractable pool enclosure ensures safety and pleasure and provides leisure and luxury at your fingertips.

When individuals purchase pool enclosures from others they may have a “surprise of their life when they give way and crumple to the ground, when you least expect it, causing an abundance of chaos and disorder.” It can be very hazardous if sharp pieces of metal come crashing down while you’re swimming. This type of incident is especially devastating when hard-work and copious amounts of money have been put into a project that may include a pool, landscaping and enclosure.Stouffville3
Cover’s in Play provides much more beneficial and practical (and may we mention, much more rewarding) enclosures at a sensible price. Why spend effort and money on a project to simply watch it collapse within a year, or months later? With a long warranty lasting up to twenty years, our enclosures ensure a rewarding and worthwhile endurance to the weather. Whatever the conditions, whatever the weather, Covers in Play is a company you can trust.

A Testimonial from one of our clients- Automatic Pool Enclosures

” The adventure story of our first wanting to be able to use the new pool we were planning for more than 4 months a year, began on the internet. We made the choice to cover it, then we looked to see who made a cover with the most advantages.

One day when I arrived home from work my wife informs me, “I think I found a cover we will both approve of.” When I went to the web site she gave me it did not take long to see why Covers In Play had some real advantages.

1st. We could open the Covers In Play unit to enjoy the warmer seasons as you would with an uncovered pool. Plus as we found out one day our grandson had a birthday pool party on a Summer afternoon and we had the cover fully open. Sixteen 6-11 year olds were in the pool and the parents were sitting around the pool talking and snacking. Well a Summer storm rolled in, I just closed the cover up tight. When the thunderstorm hit, the pool party didn’t miss a beat. The parents were amazed, pouring down rain, wind blowing and all safe and secure inside.

2nd. As the weather started to cool at night we wondered what it would be like inside the pool Enclosure. Well during the day with the sun on the room, it warms up nicely inside helping cut the heat loss to a minimum. We also use a thermal cover that rolls up into the deck storage space at the end of the pool.

3rd. Being a techy type, when I was talking to the Covers In Play people I asked what wind loads was this designed to withstand? I Was told 100 + MPH winds. Well little did we know that we were going to be visited by “Sandy” in Late October. We got those 100 + MPH gusts and steady 85-90 MPH winds for over four hours. Worst hurricane I ever experienced here in SE Pennsylvania. Next morning on close inspection our middle moveable section had 3 of the jockey wheels that run on an extruded track got forced off the track. That was the sum total of the storm. Was all corrected in a couple hours by a local contractor that does work for Covers In Play. Our experience has been all positive with the Cover and we are very happy we chose an opening Cover, it really makes the pool really enjoyable in all seasons.”
