USA: Pool Fencing: Pool Fence Manufacturers
ABOUT POOL FENCING
USA Government statistics show that in California, Arizona and Florida, accidental drowning is the most frequent cause of accidental death for children under the age of five. Swimming pool fencing, provided with appropriate safety latches, are the best protection against this risk. Most specialist pool fencing is made up of vertical aluminum poles, which are set into plastic sleeves drilled into concrete or other firm surface. Plastic mesh is stretched between the poles, and between rigid railings at the top and bottom of the fence. Pool fencing can be installed on a temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent basis. Temporary systems can be rolled up for compact storage.
The leading manufacturers, listed below, have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects, including online catalogs, colors and materials.
