We offer both aluminium tubular and glass pool fencing to Perth customers and the entire metro area.
The backyard pool is part of Perth’s way of life. It’s what makes our wonderful climate perfect. But it has its dangers. In 2012, the leading cause of death among children under five years of age was drowning. A large percentage of these deaths were in residential swimming pools. For many years, to keep children and pets safe, the law has required owners in Perth to fence their pools. Spa and pool fencing for backyards is now subject to Australian Standard AS 1926.1 – 1993. This states that pools and spas:
- Must be fenced in, in a manner compliant with the Standard
- Must be inspected, approved and registered with the Planning Authority before being filled with water.
- Pools are thereafter inspected periodically, at least every four years.
The Standard sets out detailed specifications for the dimensions and construction method of pool fencing, this includes the fencing around the property and for the gates and latching by which access to the pool is controlled. To ensure that your pool fencing, wether made from glass or aluminium meets these stringent standards, you should be sure to consult a supplier with the experience necessary to pass the inspection first time every time. Feature Fencing’s experts have been installing code-compliant pool fencing in Perth and the surrounding suburbs for decades. They are known to, and trusted by the Perth inspectorate.
Glass Pool Fencing
Part of the pleasure of owning a pool is its visual appeal, and while owners naturally want their pool to be safe, they don’t want the obligatory fencing to obscure the pool from view, or to disfigure their pool area. In complying with the regulations, many fence designs tend to dominate the view of the pool, detracting from its beauty, and obscuring the immediate pool area from view. That’s why glass pool fencing, and in particular frameless and semi frameless glass pool fencing has become the most popular choice.
At Feature Fencing we believe that a pool fence needn’t be unsightly – as well as stylish aluminium and steel railing pool fencing designs that are ideal for traditional properties, Feature Fencing’s range includes semi frameless glass pool fencing solutions that come in either toughened glass or extremely convincing perspex. These are strong, just visible enough to be safe, and are a complement to the more modern style of architecture. The transparency of semi frameless glass pool fencing not only looks great, but makes it easy to see if intruders – human or animal – have breached the security of the fence. Let us create a traditional aluminium or semi frameless glass pool fence for your Perth home, we can even help you design and install wooden feature walls to compliment your pool area as well as the fence extensions necessary under regulations.
