About PowerPlastics Pool Covers

Pool safety

Child and pet drownings happen daily. These preventable tragedies drive all our educational and practical work in our communities, teaching about pool safety. We work within a focused, wide network of safety taskforces, local government and other decision makers to lower the drowning statistics. We have also been instrumental in drafting the SABS safety standards that apply to all privately owned pools.

Education aside, our PowerPlastics Pool Covers drowning solution is the best-selling child safety pool cover – the PowerPlastics Solid Safety Cover. Many have copied our original design, although none can match our product quality, service ethic and excellent after sales service. This cover comes with its own SABS 10134:2018 safety compliance certificate a first and unique offering in the pool cover space.

A second part of the solution is TopStep, the home of pool safety. It is a free resource packed with tips and insight on the issue of drowning. The downloadable guide should be printed and handy in every home.


  • PowerPlastics Pool Covers has for many years provided homeowners and corporates with aesthetically beautiful, quality pool covers to enhance the sustainability of one’s swimming pool. We are passionate about saving water, saving electricity and saving chemicals – savings which are all easy to achieve by covering up with any of our pool covers.

    These pool solutions are designed to offer sustainable benefits to a greater or lesser extent. These benefits include:  
  • Save water – all pool covers stop 98% evaporation, eliminating the need for top ups. (An 8x4m or 32m2 pool will lose 64000 litres or 64m3 a year.)
  • Save power – a cleaner pool with less algae needs less filtration. One can achieve as much as 50% to 90% savings on power with a cover. Helps reduce the need for loadshedding.
  • Save chemicals – again, with a cleaner pool, far less chemicals are required. A pool cover also stops chemicals from evaporating in the sunlight.
  • Natural heating – our thermal pool covers, also known as pool blankets, use solar energy only to heat the pool, up to 8 degrees C. No need for electrical heat pumps to heat the pool.

These savings mean that a cover from PowerPlastics Pool Covers has a short payback period.


At the top of the range is the Roldeck automatic pool cover which offers everything one could want in a pool cover – elegance, convenient automation, environmental benefits, safety. Roldeck is the leading automatic brand in Europe and is available exclusively from PowerPlastics Pool Covers. It comes with several fitment options and slat types and colours. There is also a Solar-powered Roldeck which is great for retrofits and elevates sustainability with its solar functionality. This solid slatted cover brings style and the ultimate finish to any high-end designer home and raises property value. Roldeck aside, this style is then carried through our entire pool cover range, bringing affordable, locally designed and manufactured covers to the South African consumer.
