These covers (energy-efficient, no tracks, child-safety) are revered as the absolute leader of the industry and have won countless GOLD International Awards. Today Covertech, is the single most decorated brand in the automated pool cover category, with over 70 design awards including the 2015 International GOLD Award from the APSP International Pool & Spa Association. Over the years, clients of COVERTECH expressed the desire for custom outdoor furnishings with the same level of quality, unique design and superior functionality of their pool environments.

The founders of Couture Outdoor, Christine and Torsten Heincke, are established luxury design innovators with years of experience catering to exclusive global clientele.  Christine, originally from Palm Beach, has an extensive retail background managing and developing retail stores in The Breakers Hotel, as well as being the youngest independent store owner on Worth Avenue at the age of 26.  Christine has designed one-of-a-kind custom ball gowns and traveled to Italy and Paris designing shoes, handbags and sportswear for the world’s elite.  Christine’s keen eye for high-end exclusive design and Torsten’s access to leading architects, designers and elite homeowners quickly soared into a thriving niche in the outdoor market.
