Pool/Glass Fence and All You Need to Know

If you are a pool owner it is your responsibility to have a pool fence around your swimming pool. It will help you to keep your children safe around your pool as well as prevent accidental falls of adults. It is also reliable at keeping your pets out of the pool area where they could potentially hurt themselves. And yes, it is not only a matter of safety but also choosing the right fence for your pool can possibly give your swimming pool a better look.

The first step for glass or pool safety fencing is to get a good pool fence contractor.

As the pool fence is a matter of safety it is pretty obvious that you don’t want to give that task on an unskilled hand. You need an expert company for the task. And here comes “Master Groups”. A company with exact expertise and skilled staff on this field. When we are talking about pool fencing especially pool fencing in Sydney, there is some law and regulation that you must follow. The NSW swimming pool legislation, regulation and pool barrier standards includes-

Pool fence measurements:

  • At least 1.2m high
  • No gap at the bottom bigger than 10cm
  • A boundary fence part of the pool fence must be 1.8m high
  • No gap more than 10cm between any vertical bars in the fence
  • The pool fence must be well maintained and in good working order

“Master Group” will give you the right instruction according to the legislation for safety and maintenance of your swimming pool.

Non-climbable zone: To prevent children climbing over fencing into the pool area, the laws require pool owners to make sure they maintain a ‘non-climbable zone’ around the pool.

  • Any trees, shrubs or any other objects must not be within the 90cm non climbable zone.
  • The zone includes the space extending 30cm inside the pool area – this space should also be cleared of any potential footholds or handholds.
  • Any horizontal climbable bars on the pool fence must also be spaced at least 90cm apart.

You can hire “Master Group“, our staffs will make sure your pool meet these requirements and will carry out work in line with these safety requirements.

Glass fencing is quite popular these days because glass fences offer durability and simplicity providing unobstructed view around your pool.
