Pool Fencing Options That Comply With Pool Fence Regulations SA.
It is important you install a pool fence that meets with the South Australian pool fence regulations.
There are two different types of pool fencing Adelaide pool owners have erected most often, aluminium tubular fencing and glass pool fencing.
Pool Fence Regulations SA
All swimming pools must have a continuous ‘barrier’ fence restricting access by children to the pool. Any boundary fence used as part of the barrier must be at least 1800mm high, with any non boundary fence being at least 1200mm high with a 900mm high non-climbable section at the top.
Gates to the pool area must swing outward from the pool area, be self-closing from any position and be fitted with a latching device at least 1500mm above ground level.
Tubular Pool Fencing
Aluminium tubular fencing is the most popular choice when it comes to creating a child proof barrier around your pool area, inside the boundary fence.
There are many tubular fence styles that comply with pool fence regulations; the ‘loop’, and the ‘classic flat top’ being the two most popular and you can select any colour to complement your garden’s theme from the Dulux powder coat colours range.
Note: The distance between the uprights needs to be less than 100mm and sit not more than 100mm off the ground.
Glass Panel Pool Fencing
Glass pool fencing has become more affordable in recent years, gaining popularity with new home owners because it gives uninterrupted views as you look out your window.
Each 1200mm glass panel is made from 12mm thick toughened safety glass with polished bevel edges. There is a length to suit any design requirement; starting from 600mm wide to 2000mm wide, plus matching gate with stainless steel hinges and safety latch.
Pool Fencing Tips:
If you need to erect a pool fence, consider the material used for the floor around the pool and fence at the same time.
Laying artificial grass instead of natural turf means not having to control grass along the fence line, or perhaps look at paving with large format concrete non slip pavers.
Discuss your pool fence requirements with licensed fencing contractors from Visual Landscape Gardening to make sure you are compliant with all regulations.
