Swimming Pool Enclosures

Swimming Pool enclosures that are robust.

When building the swimming pool enclosures, Aluminum Designs uses engineering. The engineering helps us to determine the correct size beam that we’ll need to meet or exceed wind loads. The wind loads in our area are now anywhere from 120 to 160. Why choose to exceed the wind load? If you live in a newly constructed home, many contractors are building to higher wind loads. If you live in an area located in a lower wind load zone, we can make the enclosure to match the higher strength of the home. When building the swimming pool enclosures, we don’t cut corners.

What makes our enclosure company different?

Our goal is to have the best quality materials with the highest strength standards for all materials. All orders are received at our shop so we can inspect them. It is our way of keeping your order clean and safe from the weather. We prefab all swimming pool enclosures in our shop on a level concrete surface. Therefore, allowing us to set up work stations to form an assembly line. Consequently, we can build more enclosures by prefabbing versus stick building them.

Expect us bright and early around 7 to 7:30 am each morning as long as you are within an hour’s drive from the shop here in Saucier. Aluminum Designs builds swimming pool enclosures all along the Mississippi gulf coast. Most recently, we have finished pool enclosures in Ocean Springs, Pascagoula, Biloxi, Gulfport, and Wade. We are highly recommended by reputable pool builders on the coast as well as from many happy customers.

We use the following screen on all pool enclosures.

  • Gnat screen 20/20 mesh is a fiberglass screen with a protective vinyl coating that will not rust, stain or corrode. This screen keeps out the small insects from the pool enclosure; Meanwhile, still providing excellent visibility, ventilation, and a bit of daytime privacy. Therefore, this is the screen we use the most. What does 20/20 mean? In one linear inch, there are twenty openings horizontally and vertically. It is the screen manufacturer’s version of a thread count.
  • The 18/14 mesh is a fiberglass screen with a protective vinyl coating that will not rust, stain, or corrode. This screen offers proper ventilation and some bug protection for a pool enclosure while providing excellent visibility. The openings in the 18/14 screen are a tad larger, so you lose some privacy, and you get more light-transmitting in.
  • The Heavy-duty gnat screen 20/20 is a heavy-duty, vinyl-coated polyester insect screening that is Pet resistant, tear, and puncture-resistant. It provides some daytime privacy. We can use this screen on any enclosure; however, this screen is also the only screen we use on the walls of our MegaView pool enclosure.

Why do we use the Phifer brand screen?

Aluminum Designs strives to provide quality materials and top-notch service to the customer. Therefore, when we choose suppliers for materials, we look for companies that have our same beliefs. Phifer routinely tests their screen for quality control. Phifer’s tensile strength outperformed other manufactures’ we have tried in the past. As a result, Phifer’s product does a better job of keeping bugs, snakes, and debris out. Most notably, their screen doesn’t have harmful chemicals from China. It is listed safe to be installed in schools and hospitals as it is certified. Phifer’s manufacturing plant location is in Tuscaloosa, AL.

Did you know

  • You save money on pool additives by not having to replace those as often.
  • If you have a saltwater pool, the salt does not affect the aluminum framing or the screen material.
  • When building the frame, all screws perfectly align in a grid fashion. Then each screw is hand-painted with a brush after installation; this is to ensure full protective coverage on each screw.
  • When attaching the 7″ structural gutter to your house, we secure it onto the rafters with long screws-as instructed in the engineering.

We install pet doors too.

Sizes range from small to XL. We only use aluminum-framed dog doors. All dog doors have a removable panel that you can lock.
