Leisuretime Thermal Shield Blanket  


  • 4MM Thermal Blankets are the ultimate heat retention option. They retain heat, and they do it very well. If you are serious about heating your pool with a desire for higher temperatures and a long swim season then in New Zealand the bulk of your heat will be coming down the pipe from an external heat source. Don’t heat the sky – use the superior heat retention capabilities of a Leisuretime Thermal Blanket to keep that expensive heat in the pool. If you want a heated pool, a Leisuretime cover translates into huge energy savings.

  • Thermal covers for pools are essentially insulators. Unlike solar pool covers, thermal pool blankets don’t heat the water; they retain the heat, and they do it very well. A quality, well-fitted thermal pool blanket can retain a significant proportion of your pool water’s temperature. If you have a heated pool, that translates into huge energy savings.

how thermal blankets work

Thermal blanket covers float on the pool surface. The closed cell foam core creates an insulating layer which traps heat in the pool.


All residential and commercial sites that rely on paid heat sources.



Fabricated from physically cross linked polyolefin foam sandwiched between two layers of UV stabilised, polyethylene based polyfabric film. The foam provides the insulation and the outer PE layers provide the strength and durability.



cover care

Never shock dose the pool while the cover is on.
Never dose the pool with algaecides while the cover remains on.
Using a reel will extend the life of the cover.

  • Stops overnight heat loss by 3 to 4 degrees, substantially extending your swimming seasons

  • If your pool is heated at 30 degrees overnight with cover the loss should only be 3 degrees during 12 hours

  • Without a cover, the loss can be 13 degrees during 12 hours


Recommended Application:

  • Heated pools, domestic and commercial



  • Heat retention - excellent saving on energy costs

  • Reduces heat loss, costs and evaporation

  • Indoor pools - stop condensation

what colours are available?
