A Quick Initiation

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

2. HIDE Height Adjuster: Used only when additional height is required. Combined with adhesive, the Height Adjuster can fill up to 8mm of void (3mm Adhesive / 2mm Adjuster thickness / 3mm Adhesive). By adjusting this ratio as required, you will achieve a flush finish with the top of the inlay lid. (See 5. Adhesive)

3. HIDE Inlay Lid: A stainless steel tray that holds the Inlay (landscape) materials you’ve chosen, e.g. tile, paver, concrete, decking, etc. 

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

5. HIDE Adhesive: Specially formulated Adhesive for bonding almost any material to Stainless Steel. Adjust the amount of adhesive used to achieve a flush finish.

6. Documents: Contractor installation instructions, homeowner information and warranty.

What product do I need?

The HIDE product range includes Skimmer Lids, Access Covers, Square Drain Covers and Linear Drain Covers. The first step is to determine which HIDE product you need.

There are only two factors to consider: the size of the service opening you need to access and the thickness of your inlay material.

New Installation + Retrofitting

The HIDE kit system is suitable for new landscape projects, and in most instances can also be retrofitted in existing landscaped areas. Many customers choose to upgrade their existing landscape lids to HIDE, because of the luxury, safe and durable finish that HIDE provides.

The comprehensive installation instructions will guide the contractor through the process of achieving a seamless finish in either a new build or a replacement.
