IS THE COVER MADE OF?
The cover is made from an aluminum and foam sandwich
core. The top surface is aluminum with a baked on enamel
painted finish (like the hood of car). There are twelve designer colors
available to coordinate with most spa and backyard color schemes. The inside is foam for insulation. The aluminum top and bottom are embossed to hide
scratches and maintain the quality look of your cover for many years. The outer edge is annodized aluminum for longer lasting
beauty. The seal works much like a refrigerator, with a
positive suction on level surfaces. The seal must be measured to sit flush on a flat
surface to seal, this also keeps the aluminum edging from scratching acrylic
spas. This is different than vinyl covers. When provided with the outside dimensions we bring in
those measurements 1" (one inch) which equals 1/2" on each side.
IS A SAFETY COVER AND WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
The spa industry in response to some safety issues
joined together with ASTM and developed a standard for the customer to
assess the safety aspects of spa covers. Our Deluxe Cover must be sold with the TIE DOWN SET to
meet the safety cover standard. Our cover has been tested by Underwriters Laboratories
(UL) to meet those standards, and their reputation is impeccable.
(Click here to see our certification on the UL website.)
Who tests your cover??? When the Deluxe Cover is purchased with the TIE DOWN
SET, there is a label affixed to the cover, stating that it meets the
standard, with the UL Classified mark, and safety cover warnings. It is
clearly there for all, the customers and building inspectors.
AN ALUMINUM COVER, WHY NOT ANOTHER VINYL?
This is a longer lasting cover. Our aluminum cover will withstand the abuse from large
dogs, cats that scratch, and rodents that use the foam and vinyl for
nesting material. Also those mildew and smell problems are no longer
there. Protection for children should be an overiding
consideration when recommending the BE-LITE ALUMINUM SPA COVER.
Snow loads and weather considerations caused vinyl
covers to taper their covers, and this still didn't work. These weather
problems don't affect our superior aluminum covers. They won’t collapse in
the middle due to heavy snowfall, pets or children
DOES OUR LIFT DO?
Our lift uses hydraulic arms to lift the spa cover off
the spa and out of your way. You fold over half the cover onto the other half and
the arms do the lifting. Once the cover is lifted the hydraulic arms lock in
place. Some lifts require two to four feet beyond the spa to
store the cover, but the lift we offer needs only inches. Using only inches allows for use in gazebos, up against
walls, and indoor applications.The lift we offer is capable of adapting to most installations,
whether your spa is inground or in a cabinet.
DO YOU NEED A LIFT?
The days of lifting off your spa cover with two people
are gone. Freedom of where to store the cover when it is off is
solved. Using the lift instead of your back, is using your
