Summer 2022 – Improve Pool Safety with a New Aluminium Pool Fence

The Christmas and New Year festivities may have come to an end, but there’s plenty of summer fun to be had in the months ahead. If your pool fencing is starting to look its age, or if you have safety concerns and believe it may be non-compliant with current regulations, now is a great time to obtain a quote for a new pool fence. Railsafe are a leading provider of high-quality glass and aluminium pool fencing in Sydney, and in this blog post we will be highlighting some of the safety and quality benefits such a system can provide.

Why is Aluminium a Great Choice for Pool Fencing?

There are many options on the market when it comes to pool fencing including glass, steel, wood, aluminium and more. Each system has its pros and cons, and the pricing can vary substantially. Aluminium pool fencing is a great choice for those on a budget who want a visually appealing, cost effective and durable pool fence which will stand the test of time. 

Key benefits of aluminium fencing include:

  • Lightweight
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Affordable fencing alternative to glass pool fencing
  • Rust resistant – ideal for saltwater pools and coastal zones
  • Wide range of powder coating colour options to choose from
  • Ease of maintenance

Safety Benefits 

Many older homes around Sydney may have non-compliant pool fencing, which can increase the risk of injury and drowning. There are 3 different Pool Safety Standards in NSW, and it is important to ensure that you comply with the pool fencing laws listed on the NSW Fair Trading website. When providing a quote for a new pool fence, Railsafe will ascertain the date your pool was constructed in order to achieve compliance with the relevant law. 

Railsafe adhere to all New South Wales Pool Safety Legislation, with all fencing systems manufactured using Queensland sourced, high quality 6351-T6 structural alloy. We will ensure that your fence meets the minimum height and safety requirements to ensure a safe and enjoyable summer by the pool with friends and family. 

Having an appropriate pool fence will reduce the risk of slips, falls and drowning by:

  • Adding an additional safety barrier
  • Clearly defining and restricting access to the pool area
  • Helping to ensure the safety of children and pets

Maintaining Your Aluminium Pool Fence

Aluminium pool fencing is available in a wide range of colours and styles to suit your landscaping and aesthetic preferences, and it requires very little maintenance. Unlike glass pool fencing which requires cleaning after swimming to prevent residue build up, aluminium pool fencing will remain looking great for many years to come. There’s no need to worry about rust and fading, as aluminium pool fencing is powder-coated. Simply give your fence a wipe down with warm water or gentle dish soap to remove stains and dirt and it will come up as good as new.  It is a good idea to clean your fence every 12-18 months to keep it looking at its best.
