Pool Enclosures FAQ

Frequently asked questions about swimming pool and patios enclosures:

I have an existing swimming pool, what does it involve to install Albixon retractable pool enclosure?

There are no alternations required to your existing pool. Depending on your deck, there are only specific requirements on the area where the pool enclosure rails will be installed. The concrete sub base for the rails has to be strong, thick and even enough in order to assure smooth pool enclosure operations when retracting. We provide the contractors with all the required information and specifications for the job based on the selected model and dimensions of the retractable cover.

Isn’t the ALBIXON BOX small enclosure too low?

The lowest model is 32 inches (80cm) low, but it gives you 7 feet (220cm) of height for swimming in a swimming pool that is 4 to 5 feet (140cm) deep. It is more than enough for swimming. Meanwhile, the roof will be open in 95% of the usage time of the low enclosure as the inside temperature can be up to 50°C due to present greenhouse effect. The advantage of low enclosure are the aesthetics. In Europe, the trend is towards as low enclosure as possible.

Can the enclosure get scratched?

Yes. Used materials – polycarbonate and aluminum are very resistant, anti-corrosive and durable materials; however, similar to cars, it can get scratched.

What about condensation in the enclosure, how do I get rid of it if it occurs?

Condensation as well as vaporization occur as a natural effect that cannot be eliminated without air circulation. It is required to open the enclosure for 30 minutes every day in order to ventilate fresh air and get rid of the condensation effect. The polycarbonate is treated with special layer allowing the drops to fall and slide easily. With twin-wall polycarbonate, it is recommended to keep the enclosure open for 2 hours in order to clear the drops from the infill.

I have no place for the rail extensions, what are my options?

The front enclosure panel can be custom made to make it removable. After removing the front panel, the enclosure will stay open in the front and it won’t shorten your pool.

Is it possible to have tinted or opaque infill in the enclosure roofing?

Yes. It is possible to pick different colours as well as opacity. The price will differ from the standard solutions, but it will give you full privacy when using your pool with closed enclosure.

How does the Albixon retractable enclosure work?

The enclosure modules have solid wheels which slide on the tracks. Applied system of rails and wheels allows very smooth operation of the enclosure making it easy to open or close without use of any additional equipment or motor. As each panel has own track, it allows to move the modules independently and open the pool either completely or just partially in any position.

Does the swimming pool enclosure help to keep my kids and animals safe?

Yes, because the enclosure comes with safety locks. Also, the material used is very durable protecting your kids or pets to fall accidentally into the swimming pool.
