Sandpit Cover on Roller
Each sandpit is unique. Clever cover design for maxim effectiveness and ease of use is imperative. Our covers are lightweight and durable. However, especially on larger sandpits, it is just not practical to fold and relocate the cover.
We can often design our sandpit covers so that they can hang on an adjacent fence or wall. Where this is not possible, perhaps a roller could be the answer!
Despite apparently being a relatively simple concept, there is much more to sandpit cover design than you may think. A sandpit cover should be expertly designed to fit perfectly to the shape of the sandpit and around all obstructions. The fittings and attachments need to be child-safe, non-clog and secure. Further, the location and choice of fittings needs to suit the exact application.
Just Covers treat each sandpit as a unique structure and use a combination of design, manufacturing and attachment techniques to obtain the best possible result. Where possible, fence or wall storage will also be incorporated into the sandpit cover design. However, if a wall is not suitably positioned, a roller may be the best option.
Most Pool Cover rollers are not suited to sandpits because children will innocently sit on the unprotected shaft and bend it. In fact, we have seen situations where a newly installed roller has become completely useless in just a few weeks!
- For the installation to be successful, a bench seat roller must be used.
- The use of a hand wheel rather than a crank is necessary to prevent injury to children.
- The hand wheel spokes must have significant clearance from the roller frame to prevent causing an entrapment hazard.
- The cover must be designed so it will properly attach to the roller and so that it will not chafe while it is being deployed or retracted.
Whatever your sandpit, please be assured that we will strive to achieve optimum ease of handling, precise fit and a pleasing result!
