3 Things to Concider When Buying a Pool Fence

When it comes to deciding on a fence for your pool the three areas to first consider are form, function and budget. Form of course being materials used and styles chosen to suit tastes. Function encompassing all aspects of pool fencing in general and of course making sure that it conforms to Australia’s exacting safety standards. Budget will naturally dictate in which combinations the preceding two areas will be realized. So having first made a list with these three heading, you can now proceed to get a better picture of the kind of pool fencing that will best suit your needs.

With the incredible amount of choice available in materials these days, perhaps the greatest difficulty you will encounter will be making a decision on the type of resources you will use. Wood fencing whilst sturdy will require the most amount of yearly up keep and is generally used when the pool area is not the focal point of outdoor entertainment and pursuits. Aluminium tubing is a very common and can be found on most pools since the introduction of the law in Australia of mandatory safety fencing of all pool areas. Whilst aluminium is generally considered to be the industry standard its lack lustre appeal has many looking to other materials and sources.

One of the newer emerging and contemporary looking pool fencing options available now is of course glass. With a range of styles including framed, semi frameless, frameless, fully frameless in channel and also the above with an added glass balustrade as an option, glass fencing ticks all the boxes in the form category.

As for function there is still quite a bit more to consider than it obviously sounds; a fence is a fence is a fence is a fence? Not so, as mention, Australia has very exacting and stringent pool fencing laws and safety standards. The key to making sure that your pool fence meets these requirements lies in finding a builder that has all the correct safety and standard certificates. The other function that needs considerations is what use you wish to get out of your pool area, is it to be an oasis of calm or perhaps the hub for all your outdoor activities.
