Pool Safety Fence

Only one single device has ever been tested, researched, and proven to have an effect upon drownings, and it’s been around for decades: a four-sided, isolation type pool fence, made from wrought-iron or approved vinyl material. A four-sided, isolation-type fence does not attach to a structure or a block wall, and should include a self-closing, self-latching mechanism and a child-proof lock. A pool safety fence is an effective way to secure your pool and protect children from entering the water. Of course pool barriers are not a substitute for proper parental supervision, but we need all the help we can get. The best solution is to install a barrier for your pool, spa, or other hazards to give you some back-up protection. Barriers can not only help you keep your pool safe when children are near the pool, but will help keep children out when you’re not around. With a four-sided pool fence you can help prevent drownings and provide a barrier between children and the water, effectively separating the pool from the home. The strategy of placing a barrier between the water and a child is an extremely valuable effort, and is endorsed by the experts in the field of injury prevention, such as the Centers for Disease Control, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Red Cross, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
