Sareen Stone supplies integrated skimmer lid kits to complement your pool tiles and pool coping, allowing you to achieve a seamless and flush pool surround, minus that unsightly plastic skimmer lid.
Sareen Stone’s integrated skimmer lids are available for a large selection of the outdoor natural stone range including travertine, limestone and granite. The kit includes a stainless steel tray, paving matched stone insert and a stainless steel key.
Your selected stone will be infilled within a 2mm thick 316 marine grade stainless steel tray. The tray is designed to help prevent chips, cracks and possible breakage.
The skimmer lid is locked in place and can only be accessed with the key. The lid is not able to be removed without the key, making the skimmer box child safe.
The lid sits level in the recess to line up with the pool coping or surrounds. This can be achieved by using a cement or grout packer in each corner and bedding the lid in to the required height.
