SG - SuperGuardDor Superguard_01.jpg (70649 bytes) 

Although not for everybody, the SuperGuard is designed to be the 
ultimate spa cover. Exceptionally light inserts that stay light. 
This cover has a load limit rating of 500+ lbs. Note however it has been tested at over 1000lbs. 
It Comes with one of the strongest warranties in the industry. Backed with a 4 years warranty on the inserts 
against water vapour absorption & 3 years on the vinyl bag 
that houses these Super Strong inserts.

This cover interests me.

IG - InsulGuard

The original cover that gave Dorlon Ind. the name & reputation they have today. 
Built for the aftermarket consumer to be the best value money can buy. 
Quality unsurpassed. Backed with a 2 year warranty. The Volvo or Cadillac of covers.

Starting Price only 

This cover interests me 

EG - EconoGuard- Our most popular cover!

My personal favorite, Value, Value, Value. This cover reeks of value.

The EconoGuard was designed for the competitive market and hot tub manufacturers that want the quality of a Dorlon spa cover, but at the least possible price. Let me tell you there are no corners cut on quality from the InsulGuard. Everything done to get the price to a bottom line is esthetics and warranty. It still has nylon web reinforced handles, hinge and locks like the SG & IG spa covers. They just aren't as fancy of a spa cover. And only come with a 1yr warranty like most of our competitors. The underside of this cover is even a silver/gray to reflect heat back towards the water. Our competition just can't beat this one.

This cover interests me. Prices starting from ONLY $320

 Foam Core Density Factor

The biggest factor that foam density plays on a spa cover is its strength. You will get an increase in insulating value as you increase density but you also increase the covers weight brand new. On the other hand thickness plays the largest role in insulating value. Respectively there is an increase in strength as you increase thickness. Again, density for strength and thickness for insulating value. 

Please explain the foam densities to me in more detail.

If there is a cover you would like more information on, click on the radio button below in the model (SG, IG or EG) and the intersecting Type (i.e.. 1lb foam 4x2)

Prices below include the services of measuring, delivery & disposal (No disposal available April-June)- valued at $10 per service we offer all three for a value of $20 (already included below). Taking one of the 3 services off doesn't save you any money until a second service is removed which will save you $10 off the prices below. All three services removed will save you $20 off the following prices. This is Lower Mainland only, for more info on this see our simplified pricing section
