Pool fencing – Your Questions Answered

Pool fencing – Your Questions Answered

A pool fence is required by law as a safety measure to prevent small children and non-swimmers from accidentally drowning. It also serves as a barrier to keep out debris, animals, and other unwanted elements from the pool area. As leaders in premium glass and aluminium pool fencing, Perth’s UFENCEIT has supplied stylish, practical, and fully compliant fencing solutions for residential pools all across the country. There’s many questions homeowners often ask us about pool fences, so here’s our answers to some of the most frequently asked.

What materials are best for pool fencing?

There are many different materials used for pool fencing, each with their pros and cons. The most common materials used include aluminium and glass. Aluminium is durable, low maintenance, and can be powder coated in a variety of colours to match the aesthetic of the surrounding area. Glass fencing offers a sleek, modern aesthetic and allows for an unobstructed view of the pool area. Ultimately, the best material for your pool fencing will depend on your personal preferences and budget.

How do I ensure that my pool fencing is secure and child-safe?

There are several steps you can take to ensure that your pool fencing is secure and child-safe:

  • Check local codes and regulations: Make sure that your pool fencing meets all local codes and regulations for pool safety. This will vary depending on your location, so be sure to check with your local government to find out what is required.
  • Use a self-closing and self-latching gate: The gate to your pool area should be self-closing and self-latching, so that it automatically closes and locks when it is opened.
  • Keep the area around the pool fence clear: Keep the area around the pool fence free of any objects that could be used to climb over it, such as chairs, trees, or toys.
  • Supervision: Even with fencing, the best protection for children is always adult supervision. Be sure to always supervise children when they are near the pool.
  • Maintenance: Regularly check the fencing for any damage or wear and fix or replace anything that is not working properly.

It's important to note that pool fencing is not a substitute for adult supervision, and it's also good practice to teach children how to swim and also be aware of the pool safety rules.

How do I choose the right style and design for my pool area?

When choosing a pool fence design, there are several factors to consider: 

  • Aesthetics: The design of the fence should complement the style of your home and the surrounding landscape. Choose a design that will enhance the overall look of your pool area.
  • Safety: The design should prioritize safety, with no climbable parts and no spaces that a child could squeeze through.
  • Functionality: The design should be functional and easy to use, with a self-closing and self-latching gate.
  • Durability: The materials used in the fence should be durable and low maintenance.
  • View: If you want an unobstructed view of the pool area, glass fencing could be a great option.
