Multi-flex Plus; Entrance structures or connecting structures. Light, versatile and great looking are all words to describe the Multi-flex product. Designed on a 3 meter bay system with leg heights at 3 meters, this extrusion will help you make that grand statement at the entrance before entering your new Aquatic Facility.
Easyflex Plus; for smaller 4-lane, 5-lane pool covers where high wind loads and snow loads are not a consideration. Our lightest weight frame and easiest to install for most. Used primarily in the southern states due to limited snow loads required, this extrusion can still handle the wind. “Best in Class” for removing each year and re-installing for the winter months.
Uniflex; for basic rectangular pools 6-lane and below with step entrances. Capable of lower snow loads (10#’s or less) and 100 mph wind loads, this extrusion is the “Work Horse” of the family. Used more often when you plan to remove the structure for the summer months and re-install the following winter. T-S*
Big Uniflex; for ‘L-shape’ 6-lane pool to 8-lane rectangular pools. Capable of higher snow loads and higher wind loads near coastal areas. Used more often when you plan to remove for the summer months and re-install the following winter. More suitable for permanent installations due to the size of the beams. T-S-P*
Maxiflex; for larger pool areas where deck space or odd shape pools are a consideration. For use when snow loads are 20# + and high winds are a factor. This extrusion is the “Most Versatile” of the family. Although this extrusion can be used for temporary installations, it requires larger equipment and takes more planning. Used more often for semi-permanent and permanent installations where you would remove the sides and/or gable end for use as an open-air-pavilion during the summer months and re-install the side walls and/or gables for the winter months while not removing the frame or top covers. S-P*
P10; for large open areas to include enough deck space to accommodate bleachers and still carry modest snow and high wind loads. This size of extrusion is the largest of the family built for large areas and higher load requirements. Cost of dismantling and re-installing each season makes this extrusion more of a permanent installation of the framing and using as an open-air-pavilion during the summer months. S-P*
One thing to remember; the engineering report dictates the extrusion size!
*Temporary – Semi Permanent – Permanent
- TEMPORARY STRUCTURE: by definition, this is a structure that would remain erected for less than 180 days consecutively. When considering a temporary structure, remember that there are residual operating costs’ that have to be part of the consideration. Each season there is a cost associated with the erection and dismantling of the fabric structure.
- SEMI-PERMENANT STRUCTURE: by definition, this is a structure that would remain up for more than 180 days, but not more than 1 calendar year consecutively. When considering a semi-permanent structure, local Code requirements and how the City or County classifies the structure will determine the next steps in being Code Compliant. This varies across the Country.
- PERMANENT STRUCTURES: by definition, this is a structure that will remain installed and functioning indefinitely. When considering a permanent structure, the local City or County will dictate the requirements of Code Compliance. This may include meeting Energy Codes (i.e.; insulated buildings). All additional costs required for permanent classification must be considered. This classification is a longer process and involves working closely with Local Building Officials and Planning Committees.
