The product comparison is based on the following key criteria: Easy to use, product performance, aesthetics, design and construction, flexibility, and price.
Ease of use. While both types of the enclosure are relatively easy to operate, the enclosure Tracked has the edge in terms of how easy the cage is to open and close.
Product performance. In terms of good performance, it is an equally suitable enclosure. They both offer great insulation properties due to their nature are both low profile.
Aesthetics. There are two aspects to the overall aesthetics of the product. The first is the material used, and the second is how high or prominent they are as a structure.
Design and development. Both these enclosure types are of a robust construction, however the Tracked enclosures only need a lighter framework. This is because the track itself is part of the overall development, and the module is fixed to the track provides additional durability and resistance to high winds.
Flexibility. In terms of flexibility, there is no clear winner, as both offer a variety of aspects of flexibility. The trackless enclosure benefit of the door at both ends for easy access, and can be telescoped either way in your pool.
