HIDE Award

#1 Best Pool Construction Product Award

HIDE Skimmer Lids wins ‘Best New Pool Building Product’ at the New Orleans International Pool | Spa | Patio Exhibition 2019


“Good design is obvious. Great design is invisible.”

Outdoor landscaping shouldn’t be limited when it comes to small details. Until now, traditional options have been lack-lustre. Plastic pool skimmer box lids are a big blemish on a luxury investment, and metal drain grates stamp a landscape with a coarse industrial imprint.

Enter HIDE.

Access cover | Drain cover | Skimmer box lid | Concrete cover

Our range of inlay lids for skimmers, drain and access points have revolutionised landscaping options – transforming those traditional eyesore spots into hidden no-shows. This is achieved by fitting the HIDE lid with materials which match that of the surrounds. Our skimmer box lids and access covers are designed to prevent chips or breakages in stone or tiled areas, can be fitted easily on-site, and provide a luxury, flush finish to your landscaping project. The HIDE lid allows for a sophisticated, integrated finish in your landscape project – whether it be a pool, patio or outdoor area.

The HIDE lid allows for a sophisticated, integrated finish in your landscape project - whether it be a pool, patio or outdoor area.


HIDE lids can be installed both in new landscapes, or retrofitted in existing outdoor areas. They are designed for quick (and affordable) installation by a contractor, and each HIDE kit contains all the components for a no-fuss install.  The only thing left to do is to choose your inlay!



1. HIDE Safety Key
A stainless steel tool to enable the installed HIDE lid to be safely and easily opened/closed.

2. HIDE Height Adjuster
Used only when additional height is required. Provides 2mm extra height if inlay material is not thick enough to achieve a flush finish with the top of the Inlay Lid.

3. HIDE Inlay Lid
A stainless steel tray which holds the inlay (landscape) materials you’ve chosen eg tile, paver, concrete, decking etc.

4. HIDE Edge Protector
A stainless steel frame inserted into a recess within the landscaped area. It protects the coping/surrounds from chipping/breakage when the inlay lid is opened/closed.



All skimmer lids weren’t created equal. Most skimmer lid options have quality issues, and require replacement over time. What’s worse, is that many don’t even meet Australian Pool Safety Standards!

HIDE Skimmer Lids not only look amazing, but provide superior safety and performance.  They are 100% pool-safety compliant, providing peace of mind for both homeowners and contractors.

The beautiful, streamlined finish is just one of the reasons you’ll love HIDE products.


Other landscape lid options can be awkward to manoeuvre, hard to remove, or both. In comparison, HIDE covers are compact, and super easy to remove.

After care is also a breeze, and only requires occasional attendance by the homeowner, at little to no time or cost.


All HIDE lids can only be accessed with the Safety Key, so they are 100% pool safety compliant with AU standards.

Compliance means peace of mind for homeowners, plus legally protects contractors.

HIDE lids also sit flush with their surrounds, so eliminate the tripping hazard experienced with a raised plastic skimmer lid or large access grate.


Marine grade, 316 stainless steel components means a durable, long-lasting product with a 10 year warranty.

The steel frames protect the inlay materials + landscaping surrounds, preventing breakages and future batch matching headaches.
