With the introduction of recent new NSW pool safety laws, it is now mandatory for all pool owners to follow them. Fines can be issued for non-compliance.
A compliant glass pool fence is so much more
One important aspect relates to the pool fence. All residential pool fences must follow these regulations:
- All pool fencing must be at least 1200mm in height from top to bottom
- No climbable objects or overhanging vegetation within 900mm of pool fencing
- All pool gates should be self-closing and self-latching
Stylish pool fencing
There are often misconceptions that due to these regulations, pool fencing can look overbearing or unattractive. This is not the case with glass pool fencing.
There are many beautiful pool fencing options available. Glass, in particular, is a great alternative that overcomes the sometimes-invasive nature of a traditional pool fence.
Glass pool fencing not only secures your pool but unlocks your backyard’s landscape design potential by effortlessly merging your garden and pool as one.
Glass pool fencing allows your outdoor area to become a flowing oasis and prevents different elements of your yard from becoming sectioned off.
Beyond aesthetics, complying pool fencing protects your children’s safety by preventing injuries or the potential for drowning. Even if you don’t have children, a compliant pool fence will keep visiting children who may visit your property safe.
Protects your fur babies
And last but not least, pool fencing helps to protects your pets. Whilst some animals may be pool and water savvy, others are not. A complying pool fence will ensure your pets are always kept safe.
