Pool fencing is often designer fencing, very elegant, and well presented. It’s also very useful in terms of pool area design, safety, and property value adding. Fences are also life savers since they can prevent real tragedies. What you want is a great looking pool fence which is also absolutely safe.
Another consideration is that swimming pool fencing is covered by laws and so it’s obligatory to ensure it complies with regulations. That can be complex in some cases, and expensive if it comes to fines. It’s a good idea to check with your local fencing contractors. They can’t give legal advice, obviously, but they can show you what’s needed, and help with self-closing gates and other fundamental security issues.
Pool fencing types
There are plenty of good fencing designs which can provide the right look with any sort of home and the best levels of security. The favored look is mesh pool fence with powder coated finish aluminum posts. This type of fencing is safe in any environment, and works with saltwater pools.
Many fences are also designed to be low impact visually. They don’t interfere with the view or the look of the landscaping and they come in low-spectrum colors like black and dark green which look nice but are also discreet.
Pool fencing and home design
Interestingly, pool fencing designs are now commonly included in housing designs. This is partly because architects want to get the lines right for their clients, but it’s also a very practical approach to the fact that the pool must have a fence, and includes a lot of design values.
The modern mesh fences offer streamlined designs and “no climb” features above the top. These designs are based on security as well as looks, so you can get the top of the range with no concerns about the safety issues.
Pool fences are lifesavers
It must be emphasized that swimming pool fences are literally the difference between life and death, particularly for toddlers. Far too many kids have drowned, and the fencing industry, designers and community groups have been trying hard to provide the best possible prevention measures to make sure these terrible, devastating events never happen at all.
Every possible safeguard can be built in to the fence, and you’ll find your contractor will be quick to spot any issues. All access points, particularly anywhere where it’s possible to climb over, will be found and a solution provided. The best self closing gates are also the safest. Whatever your pool needs, your contractor will be happy to provide it.
