What's in your HIDE Kit

 

 

A Quick initiation

1. HIDE Cover

A stainless steel tray which holds your inlay (landscape) materials you’ve chosen e.g. tile, paver, concrete, decking, etc.

2. HIDE Edge Protector

A stainless steel frame inserted into a recess within the landscaped area. It protects the copping/surrounds from chipping/breakage when the inlay cover is opened/closed.
Note that this is 2/3″ deeper than the Cover.

3. HIDE Safety Key

A stainless steel tool to enable the installed HIDE Cover to be safely and easily opened/closed.

4. HIDE Height Adjuster

Used only if your inlay material is not thick enough to achieve a flush finish with the top of the Inlay Cover.
When additional height is required, it allows for extra adhesive to be used on either side of the Height Adjuster, providing up to 5/16″ of extra height.

(Not required in concrete kits).

5. Concrete Conversion Kit

All kits that meet the minimum requirement for concrete wet-pour application will have these kits. (Kits 1.6″, 2.0″ and 2.5″)

6. HIDE Adhesive

(Not required in concrete kits).

7. Documents

Contractor installation instructions, homeowner information and warranty.

BACKED BY A 10 YEAR WARRANTY!

You know you are purchasing a quality product when you receive a 10-year warranty.

And that’s exactly what you receive with a HIDE kit. We offer such a long-standing warranty because our Covers are constructed of high-grade materials which have a beautiful luxurious finish. However, some maintenance is required to keep them looking as good as new. The HIDE warranty covers the Safety Key, the Inlay Cover and the Edge Protector. Read and follow the care and maintenance instructions, kept your Covers clean and away from any harsh acid wash chemicals. Here is a link to some very useful Care & Maintenance advice Click here

Meanwhile, other traditional landscape lid options do not protect and support the stone, and therefore have durability issues that require regular, and often costly, replacement. Due to these durability issues, the homeowner usually receives little to no warranty coverage.

So, which option would you rather?
