Why Is This The Safest & Strongest Pool Fence In The World?
It Starts With The Pole!
Over the course of our 20+ years in business, we have tested a variety of pole materials for strength and durability. The combination we found to be the safest and strongest is a PVC reinforced Marine Grade 6063 T6 aluminum pole secured to a ½” diameter chambered stainless steel rod.
The added stainless steel rod makes this pole virtually unbreakable at the fulcrum point and allows us to drill smaller holes in your deck: dime-size compared to half-dollars like most of our competitors and our Original Pole.
Guardian’s Premier Pool Fence is our newest, strongest and most convenient pool fence system yet. We use the same top quality mesh on all of our pool fence systems and our Premier Pole is the only we use with our custom designed Pet Mesh.
We have gone extra lengths to provide you with the safest and strongest removable mesh pool fence pole in the industry. Need more proof? Watch our Premier Pole Strength Test Video, see how our product compares against other pool fence poles on the market.
Guardian’s Premier Pool Fence with Locking Deck Sleeves is the First Mesh Fence to Meet Building Code*
When our Premier Mesh Pool Fence is coupled with our Patented Locking Deck Sleeves, it becomes so safe that it meets the strict building codes of Los Angeles County and Los Angeles City.
Our Locking Deck Sleeves permanently secures your fence poles into the ground and requires the use of tools for both installation and removal. For added safety, removal can only occur while inside the perimeter of the fence.
The convenience of removable mesh fencing is normally a valuable feature to our every-day customers, but when needing fencing to satisfy state agency regulations for places like foster homes and day-cares, having a permanent mesh fence is attractive for its gentleness with children.
If you live outside of Los Angeles County and need a fence to satisfy regulatory agency requirements or new construction codes, please reference your local agencies and building departments to determine if we satisfy their required specifications.
Why We No Longer Use Fiberglass In Our Safety Fence Poles?
Some of our competitors boast about their bend and dent-resistant fiberglass poles but there is a reason Guardian stopped using fiberglass in our pole construction.
Logically fiberglass seemed like a good choice for pole strength and durability, which is why it was used as a reinforcing component in our first upgraded pole. It passed all of our strength tests and, in a controlled environment, appeared to be a great option. After seeing it perform in the field, however, we came across a potentially hazardous problem in the case that a pole did break.
Broken fiberglass can cause irritation of the eyes, skin, or respiratory tract and, here in California (as of 1991), must be labeled as potential cancer causing material. When a pole reinforced with fiberglass broke, an installer was required to wear long sleeves, pants, gloves and eye protection during the removal process. They would then have to clean the affected area with soap and water to make sure all of the fibers were collected, as to not expose our customers to any potential issues. These potential risks to the families and employees we aim to protect were not worth the extra bit of durability offered by these fiberglass-reinforced poles.
We began brainstorming a safer option. Learning from past trials, we knew to reinforce the entire aluminum pole with only PVC wasn’t going to give us the strength we desired. During testing, the poles reinforced with PVC would break at the fulcrum (where the pole and ground meet) at lower pounds of pressure than with the fiberglass and we would not settle until we found an alternative at least as strong as our first upgraded pole. Then it occurred to us… stainless steel!
To keep the pole lightweight and durable, we chose to reinforce the bottom portion of our pole with stainless a steel rod, strengthening the fulcrum. This is, after all, the most common area for a pole to break. During testing, we were amazed to find out just how strong this combination of materials is. It is far superior in strength, durability, and safety than fiberglass.
After many years of testing and trials, we are proud to present the SAFEST and STRONGEST removable mesh pool fence in the industry, Guardian’s Premier Pool Fence.
* Guardian’s Premier Mesh Pool Fence with Locking Deck Sleeves complies with California State, Los Angeles City and County Building Code. If you live outside of LA County and need a fence to satisfy regulatory agency requirements or new construction codes, please reference your local agencies and building departments to determine if we satisfy their required specifications.
Climb-Resistant: Guardian has engineered the only gate with NO CROSSBAR. Not having a crossbar significantly decreases the likelihood of your child climbing over our gate because there is no place for them to gain leverage from. Instead of a crossbar, we designed our gate with trusses on each side to control gate tension. Our gate trusses are made from 6061 marine grade aluminum and can be powder coated in the same colors as our pool fence.
Self-Closing: Tru-Close hinges have long been the most reliable self-closing gate hinges on the market which is why we use them with every Guardian Gate. These hinges are tough, molded with a stainless steel torsion spring and coated with UV-Stabilized materials to provide you with hinges that won’t bind, sag, or stain. They are also easy to adjust, requiring only a screwdriver, and come with a 100% Rust-Free For Life guarantee.
Self-Latching: MagnaLatch Safety Gate Latches were specifically designed for securing gates around swimming pools, yards, and child care centers. Combined with the self-closing Tru-Close hinges, they meet child safety codes because the latches will magnetically latch itself shut. This latch is also key-lockable and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. MagnaLatch is the original and is still the world’s best selling magnetic latches on the market.
The weakest part of any pool fence pole is the point where the pole meets the ground, also known as the fulcrum. When correctly installed, a pole is unlikely to break at any other point but here. This is because any external pressure on the pole will pivot from the only place the pole can provide resistance, which is from the ground.
To correct for this problem, we engineered our Premier Pool Fence Poles to contain a stainless steel pin at the base of our pole, reinforcing it and making it unbreakable.
To prove this, we lined up our Premier Pole with our competitors’ poles and drove a truck into them. Yes! We ran them over with a truck! Our Premier Pole was the only pole to remain intact and could be bent back into their upright position.
Our Premier Fence Poles are constructed using Marine Grade 6063 T6 aluminum poles, reinforced with PVC, and secured to a ½” diameter chambered stainless steel rod at its base that supports the fulcrum.
Our standard pole spacing is distanced at 36″. Custom lengths are available. Pricing will vary.
Screws & Bolts
All Guardian screws and eye bolts are made from 304 stainless steel. We will coat both with a Teflon-like finish to match the color of your selected poles unless desired otherwise. Unlike paint, our finish will not peel.
Our sleeves are made from a non-conductive high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
4 foot, 4 ½ foot or 5-foot heights. Custom heights are available. Pricing will vary. *The minimum height recommended by the U.S.C.P.S.C. is 4 feet.

Our padlocks are made of solid brass with a solid brass shackle. To prevent unauthorized removal of the fence, padlocks can be used to lock adjoining fence panels, requiring a key for fence removal. The average pool fence needs between 10 and 15 padlocks.
