Custom Options & Upgrades

Skirt Length

Most hot tub covers are made with a skirt or flap, with the standard length being 4 inches. Cover skirts consist of a marine-grade vinyl material that continues along the perimeter of your spa cover. Additionally, skirts offer your cover some protection from natural elements, including dirt and debris. Hot Tub Covers Canada offers a variety of options, ranging from no skirt, to any length over 1.5 inches.

Strap Options

Every replacement spa cover from Hot Tub Covers Canada offers 4 standard tie-down straps. These standard straps also offer 4 male-female locks, with a lock and key for added safety and security. Our straps also include a set of stainless steel mounting hardware.

Handle Options

Hot Tub Covers Canada will always include 2 handles & 4 straps on all our replacement hot tub covers. The option for 2 handles can be selected on the 'Customize your Cover' page if preferred.

Gazebo Handles

Gazebo handles, or "handles inside the fold" can be added for $29.95. These handles offer unparalleled durability and are cross stitched for added strength. Gazebo Handles are located along the zipper portion of your replacement spa cover.

Chemical Resistant Energy Shield

Our Chemical Resistant Energy Shield is your first step towards great energy savings.  This thicker highly reflective energy-saving metallic / Heavy Duty material will soon be available as an additional upgrade.  The reflective shield bounces radiant heat back into the spa water that would normally be lost = more energy savings!

Full Hinge Seal Upgrade

This convenient upgrade more than pays for itself in energy savings, and is fully compatible with all cover lifters! Hot Tub Covers Canada's standard hinge seal consists of two steam pockets and a rubber gasket which runs down the center of the cover.

This will not allow steam to escape from the sides of the cover as the steam stoppers are two pads that are placed on the underside of the cover, at the ends, between the two halves.

We can upgrade this for you, with a single continuous seal stretching the entire length of the fold to improve energy efficiency. The Full Length Hinge Seal Option increases efficiency by filling in the entire gap between the two halves with one continuous hinge seal.

The Full Length Hinge Seal is a highly effective way to prevent significant heat loss from the center of your spa cover.

The benefits of this upgrade are even more noticeable in snowy weather.

Covers without the full hinge seal will have a significant amount of snow melting along the center of the hinge, displaying the significance of the heat loss which occurs from the center seam of a cover without this useful extra seal.

Vapour Barrier Upgrade

Hot Tub Covers are constructed with a vapour barrier fully encapsulating and sealing the foam inserts. This barrier protects against the leading cause of hot tub cover destruction; water logging. The vapour barrier effectively protects water vapour from being exposed to and ruining the hot tub cover’s foam. We are unique in that we offer a highly sought after 4 mil vapour barrier, while the industry standard only consists of a 2 mil vapour barrier.

A stronger vapour barrier helps your cover last longer and stay lighter as it protects it from the water absorption that occurs when chemicals in your hot tub, such as chlorine and bromine, break down the integrity of the foam core.

One of the exclusive features of our hot tub covers is that we start with a 4 mil vapour barrier surrounding the foam, which completely encapsulates the insulation, and is both vacuum and heat-sealed. This provides a protective barrier to your cover to prevent water absorption, keeping your cover light over the years.

We highly recommend upgrading to include even more layers of vapour barrier as it is a small investment for the additional years your cover will remain highly efficient, light and easy to handle.

We offer a protection upgrades over and above the included 4 mil vapour barrier through the manufacturing process, as we can double wrap the foam core of your custom cover with a second layer of polyethylene sheeting of varying degrees of thickness.
