Well-Constructed, Stylish Swimming Pool Fence

According to a major report last year, drowning among one to four year olds is most prevalent in home environments and New Zealand has the highest rate of youth drowning among OECD countries.

Little wonder then that the design and construction of swimming pool fences is an extremely important safety feature to be considered when planning a pool.

The good news is that there is now a national standard to improve pool safety for young children, which provides clear guidance for the construction of safety barriers to restrict young children's access to bodies of water.

It is the owner's responsibility to comply with the council regulations and to ensure that the fence complies with the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act and the Building Act requirements throughout the life of the pool.

Therefore it is highly recommended that if you are building a swimming pool, you employ the services of an experienced, well-regarded swimming pool fencing company. Safety and security are paramount in your pool fencing options but you will also be looking for a fence that is both stylish and attractive and one which will enhance your property.

Today the design features are endless, whether you are looking for a unique architectural style fence or working to a strict budget. There are fencing solutions to suit everyone and every budget. There are now frameless glass panel barriers and balustrades so that, if you are lucky enough to have a view, it will be unimpeded and these glass fences can even enhance the landscaping around your pool.

A well-constructed, stylish fence with all safety features and council approved will go a long way to giving you peace of mind as a pool owner.
