1. Virgin Foam Cores:
While many competitors use regrind in their foam cores to save them money during production, Sunstar uses only virgin foam cores to save you money and provide you a stronger, more durable, and more energy-efficient cover.
2. Antaeus 2000 Vapor Seal:
Our exclusive, proprietary plastic is more effective than what other manufacturers typically use. Our specially formulated material reduces vapor transmission and still has the strength, flexibility, transparency, and seal-ability we require. Equally important is the perfect heat seal seam. Sunstar uses an impulse sealer that makes a perfect seam using the right combination of temperature, pressure, and timing. Unlike the less expensive hand-held sealing machines, all human variables are eliminated so your cover makes a perfect seal every time.
3. N-ergy Fit™ technology and Full Length Heat Seal Gasket:
Sunstar’s end pillow and full length heat seal are all specially designed to help save heat and prevent moisture loss for long-term energy savings.
4. ASTM Cover Standard AND UL Classified:
Sunstar meet the ASTM Safety Standard along with other manufacturers and we have gone a step further to be independently UL Classified.
5. Three-Year Non- Prorated Warranty:
We stand behind our product regarding both materials and workmanship. With less than a 1% failure rate on both encasement and cores, we can guarantee that we make an excellent product.
6. Marine Grade Vinyl:
Ours still offers mildew and UV inhibitors; we have not settled for less-expensive materials without the plasticizers. Our material has the flexibility to stretch with the core rather than failing at points of stress and less expensive vinyl cannot compete.
7. Twenty-Eight Points of Internal Reinforcement:
Every stress point is reinforced including the hinge, handles, straps, corners, and skirts.
8. Over 30 Years of Experienced Craftsmanship:
Our years of knowledge means we can create a cover for almost any portable or inground spa.
We offer complete OEM, dealer, and consumer-level service. Flexible and efficient, we have developed a loyal following based on our longstanding reputation for fairness.
Even though using a one-piece box is less expensive, we have found the two-piece top and bottom boxes to be far more durable. Ours is a 275# test.
In today’s economy buying a -“good”- product just is not enough. Today, consumers insist on the best products in terms of both manufacturing materials and reduced operating costs. When purchasing a hot tub cover, several attributes like longevity, insulation value, tightness of seal to the tub and overall energy efficiency all factor into the return on investment of your purchase.
To understand how to reduce operating costs, start by learning how spas and hot tubs use energy. Hot tubs typically use electric energy to heat and continuously circulate the water, and a very small amount of electricity for lighting. Hot tubs are covered and unused more than 95 percent of the time, yet this is typically when the hot tubs uses 75 percent of its energy. Thus, energy conservation starts with -“steady-state”- mode by reducing heat loss through the hot tub cover.
Insulation value is derived from our manufacturing process using virgin foam cores, 27-ounce marine-grade vinyl, full-length heat seal gaskets (optional on all hinged covers) and the unparalleled tightness of the Antaeus 2000™ vapor seal. These features are the most important construction details in terms of overall energy use and efficiency of your hot tub.
The California Energy Commission (CEC) was the first governing body to mandate a standard of hot tub efficiency compliance. Sunstar spa covers are rated with one of the highest R-Values in the industry and manufactures selling hot tubs in California using Sunstar hot tub covers were able to pass the CES’s strict guidelines effortlessly unlike many competitors.
While It would be impossible to create a totally air-tight spa cover the Sunstar hot tub and spa covers will reduce your energy waste when compared to other spa cover manufacturers. We build green and you save green. If you currently own a spa or hot tub and notice that the cover is becoming heavier from water saturation, replace it with a Sunstar cover today. Water-logged insulation loses effectiveness and wastes costly energy that could mean dollars out your pocket. Discover why Sunstar is the premier developer of elegant, durable and energy-efficient hot tub and spa covers for most hot tubs and spas in the industry.
