With so many drowning deaths of young children each year in Australian backyard swimming pools, compliance with safety regulations is at an all time high. The most vital component of swimming pool safety is the safety barrier that surrounds the pool – the swimming pool fencing.
It doesn’t matter what material your pool fencing is made of, all pool fences need to be compliant with Australian Safety Standards. If your fencing doesn’t pass stringent examinations, it will be deemed unsafe, need to be removed and reinstalled with fencing that does comply.
If you decide to go the DIY route with installing pool fencing, then you must first ensure the materials you purchase are compliant with safety regulations, and that the pool fencing is constructed to the requirements of pool safety regulations. If it isn’t, then you will just be wasting your time and money.
