There are many different types of pool fencing. Some of the most common ones include:
When selecting your pool fencing, there are some factors that you will need to take into consideration. Some fences need a hard surface to be installed. Look for a fence that will give you privacy and cannot be climbed. Consider the look of the fence. You want it to blend in with the rest of your home, and not look out of place. Think about how much fencing your require, and what kind of warranty is being offered. Finally, consider your budget. Some fencing types are more expensive than others.
Since 1991, strict regulations have been introduced regarding fencing for inground and aboveground pools ands spas. 1994 also saw the introduction of legislation that requires pools built before 1991 to be upgraded to provide effective safety barriers. Here is some nationwide pool fencing requirements. If you are unsure of anything, speak to the pool building professional or your local council.
When installing or considering installing pool fencing, always make sure that you get at least three quotes from three different companies. Remember that the cheapest quote is not necessarily the right one for you. The quote should include the cost of all materials as well as labour, estimated to the best of the company’s ability. Ensure that you feel confident with what the company is offering and that they will comply with all safety regulations. If a permit is required to install the fencing, the company should be able to assist you in obtaining one. Ask how long it will take for the fencing to be installed, and if there are any precautions that you should take before using the fence (such as concrete setting times, paint drying times etc).
The material you choose for your pool fencing will have the most significant impact on the overall cost. Expect timber to be the most cost effective followed by brick, steel, aluminum and glass. The frameless glass style fence that is currently so popular is the most expensive option, with the support posts and brackets (typically aluminum) a significant portion of the overall cost. Expect to be quoted based on the length of the area you need fenced.
