Heavy-duty 16-gauge aluminum channel support beam provides increased strength against snow-loading & discourages foam sagging.
This is the heaviest gauge (thickest) reinforcement beam used in the industry, others tend to be 22 to 26 gauge. Galvanized steel is used for it's increases strength over aluminum, and also because of it's greater resistance to chemicals (chlorine and bromine). C-channel is much stronger than lesser expensive T-bar others may use.
If the possibility of this channel rusting has been made a concern to you, it really shouldn't be. The only way for this C-channel to rust is if the vapor barrier surrounding the foam is broken. If this happens the foam core of a cover will absorb water (getting heavier and heavier) long before the channel loses any integrity.
Continuous hinge seal plus steam stoppers
These covers have a continuous insulated "hinge seal" to prevent heat from escaping from an area most people don't even think about. Most other covers have what are called "fingers" or "steam sealers" (below). These are two pads that are placed on the underside of the cover, at the ends, between the two halves to prevent steam and heat from escaping when the cover is installed on your spa. If you turn one of these covers upside-down you'll actually see that they also push the two insulating halves apart (below), leaving as large as a one inch gap between the two halves.
Waterproof Underside Energy Shield
Energy Shield, a 12 oz scrim, coated with a highly reflective, woven metallic material. The Energy Shield gives our spa covers an advantages over other spa covers. The reflective nature of the Energy Shield yields a reflecting dish effect that bounces these heat waves back down into the water, thereby increasing the cover's insulating ability.
Four Heavy-Duty Tie Downs
Each cover comes standard with four heavy duty tie-downs equipped with locking child resistant safety latches and matching keys. To assure the integrity and prevent the straps from ripping out, the straps are sewn into the cover in four places, including the skirt. This makes them virtually tear-proof.
Besides aiding in keeping out unwanted visitors, the tie-downs, when properly used help to prevent strong winds from blowing off the cover.
Two Ultra Strong, Reinforced Handles
Triple-reinforced handles with webbing inside.
Unlike the handles on many covers which tend to be a great weak point, these spa cover handles have been designed and engineered to be one of the strongest available. Handles are great when the cover is new, but over a long period of time most covers eventually get a bit heavier. Cover handles, having such a small attachment area can be easily torn off, sometimes tearing the cover. Our cover's handles are made of extremely strong, 1-1/2" wide nylon webbing. Additional stitching, and internal reinforcing make them some of the strongest in the Industry.
