Yard Guard safety covers are manufactured with the highest standards in the industry and are designed to keep your pool safe and clean. This cover is specifically designed for on-ground pools with an 8' end deck and a 2' walk-around deck. This cover is reinforced with heavy-duty webbing along the top and bottom of every seam. Unlike other safety covers, which feature webbing on only one side of the cover, Yard Guard's webbing on both sides increases the strength of the cover by double. Rub strips are placed where the strapping would go over the coping to prevent wear and tear. Marine-grade white triple line stitching is used to secure all straps with cross and box tack at all perimeter stress points. The Yard Guard Aquamaster is a lightweight solid safety cover that is up to 50% lighter than conventional vinyl solid covers but is also up to 70% stronger. This tough, non-porous material blocks sunlight and helps prohibit algae growth, plus the durable coating will not fade or stain. Safety covers are a premium option for swimming pool owners who are looking for a great looking product that will keep unwanted intruders from entering their swimming pool. All Yard Guard covers are manufactured using the most modern equipment, including a computerized cutting and shaping system. All covers, throughout every stage of production, are quality checked and signed for before final packaging.
