Forget Swimming Pool Covers, Try Swimming Pool Enclosure

Swimming Pool Enclosure-Modern Sun Rooms: A Leading Trend In Outdoor Living
It’s no doubts that the swimming pool in our backyard is playing a quintessential role in promising joyful moments to our summertime.

Since having a swimming pool is a big thing for everyone, its daily maintenance might be a bit of an itching issue for us to totter-tatter a lot.

You tackle things constantly like clearing leaves and debris, reducing your heating bill as well as seeking to add fewer chemicals. And at times we might think that getting a pool cover seems to be a hell of a good option.

However, many people don’t like the winter pool covers like water bag pool cover. It makes quick swim impossible for it takes time to roll the cover off before swimming, which does sabotage the luxury swimming experience.
Pool covers work best on rectangular pools, yet they are difficult and impractical to use on irregularly shaped pools. If your pool shape is special design like this swimming pool below, it may not be possible to use a pool cover.

What’s more, based on the feedback we found from the end-user experience, the pool cover still is not quite promising in terms of firmness.
That’s when a pool enclosure comes into the play.

First of all, it looks good. It’s not eliminating any of the aesthetic design of a pool. It even elaborates it with a more sophisticated appearance.

Secondly, an enclosure can provide year-round versatility. Especially, it keeps your pool warm during winter. Most pool enclosures products are made of polycarbonate sheets. The polycarbonate sheets are the perfect material for trapping heat, therefore maintaining a warm environmental condition.

Also, for families with little kids, the pool enclosure ensures safety. It’s mildly dangerous for your kids to play outside alone when you have a pool installed in your backyard. The well-designed structure prevents your kids from running into the pool. After all, as one of our customers puts it, “What could possibly be more important than safety concern?”

Why Polycarbonate Enclosure is Better than Glass-Polycarbonate Panels VS Glass-SUNSHIELD Large Pool Enclosure

If you’ve been searching for an outdoor swimming pool enclosure or patio enclosure, you’ve already known there are several types to choose from like glass enclosure, polycarbonate enclosure, operable & sealed enclosure etc. If you are a bargain hunter, you would find that the retractable solid polycarbonate enclosures are a great deal in the terms of GOOD, FAST, CHEAP.
If you are traditionists may still go for glass pool enclosures. But let’s take a closer look at Solid Polycarbonate vs Glass then you would find the answer why PC enclosure have been popular?


Polycarbonate vs Glass: Polycarbonate is Shatterproof and more durable than Glass

A glass is synonymous with “breakable” while polycarbonate sheet is half the weight & has 250 -300 times impact resistance better than glass and 30 times better than acrylic.
The polycarbonate sheet is shatterproof even when it hit with a 3kg hammer from 2 meters (6’). Definitely, it would be one solid material to protect your patio, pool or spa from heavy storm and snow.

Keep It Warm with Better Insulation of Polycarbonate
Poly Sheet has lower thermal conductivity than glass or acrylic and at the end of the day, polycarbonate panel insulates up to 60% better than glass panels.
UV Protection
Though glass can resist the harmful UV by adding a special chemical coating, the poly sheet with co-extruded UV-absorbing layer can blocks out 98% UV rays and keep your skin safe. You could read, rest or swim anytime.

Polycarbonate vs Glass:● Fabrication —Unlimited Design  ●More Options


Polycarbonate sheet can be bent, polished, milled so polycarbonate sunroom can be created into curved, arched, dome and more designs.
Fabricating glass requires sophisticated machines which are expensive and that’s why traditional glass sunrooms are normally straight shape.
A curved glass is more expensive than a curved polycarbonate sheet. That’s why you could get a polycarbonate pool enclosure started at $2999 but a glass enclosure costs over $10,000.

●More Options

On the other hand, retractable polycarbonate enclosure could achieve indoor warm and outdoor free which people wish.
With a polycarbonate sheet, manufacturers can comfortably produce either a fixed or retractable/telescopic pool enclosure and people can enjoy swimming even in the dead of winter.

Polycarbonate vs Glass: ● Delivery ●Installation

Polycarbonate sheet is lighter than the glass for easy delivering and installation. SUNSHIELD enclosures were specifically designed with a minimal number of components and are already partially assembled when delivered. With a basic understanding of construction and the required equipment, as few as two people can build an enclosure in 1-2 days.

Polycarbonate vs Glass: ●Delivery  ● Cost  ● Reinforcement


Polycarbonate can be bent in a smaller size and easy to package. It can save more packaging cost and freight than glass.

●Cost & Reinforcement

Polycarbonate sheet is cheaper than the glass in the same area.
More so, the poly sheet is the half weight of glass. Does this affect the enclosure? Yes definitely. Let us take a deep look.
Firstly, more installation cost
Heavy glass enclosure requires more labor and expect more installation cost.
Secondly, more reinforcement for the groundwork.
Heavy structures would require more reinforcement for the pool deck groundwork.
Thirdly, more aluminum alloy
As the structure will require more reinforcement, the beams and connecting sections will need more aluminum alloy.
