A high quality hot tub spa insulating cover can pay for itself in as little as 6 months? These covers, designed for strength, durability and longevity are constructed of the finest materials available. The inner core of the Deluxe spa covers are a 1.5 pound density, metal reinforced EPS foam , tapered from 4" to 2" to allow accumulated water to easily run off. The inner core of the Extreme spa covers are a 1 pound density, metal reinforced EPS foam tapered from 6" to 4". The Extreme spa cover has an insulating factor in excess of R-21. Also available is the Extreme Stretch spa cover for spas over 96", up to 108" (9 feet) long.
Many older, and some cheap covers are made of a flat foam (or foam with less taper) which tends to allow water to puddle,causing the cover to sag, allowing more water to puddle, eventually breaking the cover.
Foam density refers to the weight of a cubic foot of foam. A 1.5 lb. density is generally the ideal for a 4" thick cover. It has excellent strength and insulating ability, yet is light enough to maneuver on and off your spa. Lesser densities are NOT advised for a cover of this thickness due to it's lack of strength. With our 6" thick Extreme cover, a 1 pound density is more than enough. It provide almost 50% more insulation value over the 4" Deluxe spa cover, is stronger, yet is the same weight. Higher foam densities have additional strength, but only slightly more insulating ability. One of the many options we offer is upgrading to a higher density foam, if additional strength is needed. Perfect for areas of heavy snow, rambunctious children and large dogs (even deer).
The foam is wrapped in a 6 mil polyethylene sheeting that is heat sealed to prevent water absorption. Many cheaper cover manufacturers tape the poly sheeting closed to save costs, but the tape quickly fails and the cover will start absorbing water, getting heavier and heavier. As an option, the foam can be doubled wrapped for extra protection from water absorption.
The outer covering is a certified heavy duty marine grade vinyl which is highly mildew and UV resistant. It was initially developed as an awning material for the boating industry. It's available in your choice of different colors and is sewn together with a highly UV inhibited commercial thread which won't mildew or rot out like some cheaper covers. There's even reinforced handles for easy removal from your spa and four straps so you can lock the cover down to your spa.
