Pool Fencing Ideas
Even if your swimming pool is inside a fenced yard, you would benefit from putting a mesh pool fence around it.
I’m sure you keep a close eye on the children and pets in your life, but not everyone is as vigilant as you. The truth is a child or animal can, at any time, wander into your yard – not to mention the occasional random, bumbling, would-be peeping tom. You probably wouldn’t be too upset about the peeping tom, but the kids and animals are another story! Installing a mesh pool fence will help protect anyone who may climb your fence or enter your yard in any way. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that children under age 5 and young people aged 15-24 years have the highest incidence of drowning in the U.S.
Swimming pool fence ideas:
Obviously, swimming pools can pose serious safety risks and no one wants to be party to an accidental drowning. And naturally, you want a barrier that is attractive, as well as strong and durable. There are many mesh pool fence barriers on the market and you should also consider how easy or difficult the fence is for children or animals to breach. The gate must close securely and should ideally have a self-latching gate. Visibility is also a consideration; you don’t want anything blocking your view of the swimming pool. Also, remember that your mesh pool fence must meet local building codes.
The advantages offered by a top-line mesh pool fence meet all of the above qualifications. The quality brands also come in a variety of colors and their characteristic transparency guarantees that the aesthetics of your property will not be compromised. The fabric of a mesh pool fence doesn’t allow a foothold for potential climbers and some have other features that prevent climbing, as well.
Do your research and verify that the company you choose offers dealer support as well as qualified installers who are well-trained and knowledgeable about the product.
