Maximising pool temperature and inhibiting algae growth at the same time is now possible with award-winning light filtering material, meaning there is no need to compromise between temperature and chemical savings. Offering optimised solar gain and algae inhibition, the patent-applied-for EnergyGuard™ Selective Transmission material now effectively delivers the best possible balance between solar heat gain, chemical and filtration reductions, making it the most innovative solar cover to date. The bubble layer of the material uses a midnight blue pigment which gives the material its selective transmission properties. This works as a selective filter absorbing the visible wavelengths responsible for photosynthesis. This absorbed energy is passed to the pool through conduction, while the transmission properties of the bubble layer allows for Infrared radiation (IR) to pass through the material and be directly absorbed by the water.

EnergyGuard™ Selective Transmission has been awarded the 2018 Business Innovation Award for delivering significant societal and economic impact through the application of Physics.
The bubble layer of the material uses a patented midnight blue pigment combination which gives the material its selective transmission properties. The pigment formulation works as a selective filter absorbing the visible wavelengths responsible for photosynthesis. This absorbed energy is passed to the pool through conduction, while the transmission properties of the bubble layer allows for Infrared radiation (IR) wavelengths to pass through the material and be directly absorbed by the water.
As well as preventing debris from entering the pool, EnergyGuard™ Selective Transmission helps maintain a pleasant, warm swimming environment by using light filtration technology to absorb the wavelengths that promote the growth of algae, reducing the cost and time spent on maintenance.
The unique profile of the GeoBubble™ technology air cells provide both buoyancy and an insulative air gap to control heat transfer enabling the material to manage the pool environment and keep the pool and the desired temperature.
Our materials reduce water losses through evaporation by working as a barrier between the water’s surface and the atmosphere. By simply covering the pool with the material, evaporation is reduced by over 98%, resulting in the preservation of the water resources and increased temperature within the swimming pool.

Don’t just take our word for it
“Very impressed with my EnergyGuard™ ST pool cover… after using the cover the algae was dead within a week or two and vacuumed out of the pool with ease… I’m delighted, and the pool water is sparkling clear in record time… the pool temperature has risen about 6 degrees in a week.”
