Every DuraCore spa cover is tested to handle heavy loads with no damage- equivalent to about 18 inches of snow. If your spa gets more snow than that, we can add an additional reinforcement layer in the cover that will double the strength.

How does it not gain water weight like every other cover does?

2024-04-30T11:11:52-04:00

Spa covers gain water weight for three reasons: The humidity from the hot water below gets through the plastic liner and reaches the under side of the cover. The water is absorbed into the pores of the polystyrene foam insulation. The moisture stays there forever because the top layer of marine vinyl fabric does [...]

The polyester fabric exterior skin is 5 to 8 times stronger than marine vinyl, especially after a few years of sunlight, so even large hailstones don't crack or damage the fabric. The polypropylene foam just under the skin is very tough and resistant to dents because it is mostly used for advanced packaging applications, [...]

On the underside of a DuraCore cover is a sealed plastic shell madeof twinwall polycarbonate. Twinwall polycarbonate has some unique properties. It's basically two very thin sheets of plastic held together in the center by walls or cells of plastic. The air chambers make a DuraCore almost as light as a standard spa cover, [...]

How can DuraCore have twice the insulating value of a standard cover in the same thickness?

2024-04-30T10:58:36-04:00

Heat escapes from a spa in two ways. Heat conducts upward right through the cover. Heat is lost when air enters around the edge of the cover and steam escapes. The DuraCore cover reduces both.  To reduce upward heat conduction, a cover needs a high R-value. A standard foam cover has an average thickness [...]
