Don’t Take Any Chances – Fence In Your Swimming Pool For Safety

steel pool fence with glass panelsFencing is one of the easiest ways to mark out the boundaries of your property and when used in a decorative way also gives curb appeal. Fencing can also be used to screen off areas in your back yard which could pose a threat to children such as your swimming pool. Home pools are extremely popular in Brisbane and if you’re considering getting a pool fence to safeguard your children, then you’ll be rewarded with many benefits:

Peace of mind

The obvious reason for getting a swimming pool fence is to protect children and pets who may be attracted to the lure of the water and not realising the danger, get into difficulties and possibly drown. Children in particular love playing in the water and if you’re distracted by other things, there’s a great risk of children getting into the pool without your knowledge. Fortunately you can prevent this from happening by getting a pool fence installed which will help you sleep at night.

Decorative fencing

Many people may question whether a pool fence will look ugly and take away the view. Fencing can be extremely decorative and enhance your landscaping or, if you prefer, you can choose frameless or semi-frameless so that the aesthetics of your pool are barely compromised. Thanks to transparent fence panels you can still sit in your garden and enjoy the view of sparkling water and be able to see what’s going on at the pool’s edge.

Versatility of steel

One of the most appealing aspects of using tubular steel for your swimming pool fence is that it can be moulded into almost any shape to meet your needs. It doesn’t just make a good barrier but it will look good too.


With other forms of fencing you may be concerned about deterioration but with treated steel this worry is eliminated. This high quality fencing material can tolerate the heat and the sun as well as the cold and the rain. In essence once your steel pool fence is installed it’s here to stay and will remain securely in place for many years to come.


Naturally price is a concern when it comes to pool fencing but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that steel is competitively priced these days. In addition you won’t have to worry about the costs of maintenance since all your fence requires is a hose down from time to time to keep it clean and dust free.
