While pool fencing is now mandatory in all Queensland and NSW homes, there are many reasons why pool fencing is a great idea.
The key function of pool fencing is to prevent young children from entering pools or spas without supervision. A quality pool fence will stop children from injuring themselves around the pool or potentially drowning. Pool fencing is the most effective way to protect your children, as well as other children visiting your property.
Children aren’t the only ones you need to be wary about. Cats and dogs can also enter your pool area and enter the pool unattended. While some animals are pool savvy, others are not. By ensuring you have quality and compliant pool fencing you can keep your pets safe.
In Queensland and NSW every residential pool requires compliant pool fencing for all pools and spas. These regulations dictate that all pool fencing must be at least 1200mm from top to bottom. Any climbable objects within 900mm of pool fencing need to be shielded or removed completely and any nearby or overhanging vegetation should be trimmed back. Any pool gates should be self-closing and self-latching. By doing all these things you can ensure that your pool fencing is compliant and avoid any government fines.
There are many beautiful pool fencing options available. If you are looking for a non-invasive pool fencing option, then framed or semi framed glass pool fencing is the way to go. Glass pool fencing not only secures your pool but also adds an element of elegance to your yard.
