How A Pool Fence Can Make Your Swimming Pool Safer

Swimming pools are fun and aesthetically pleasing additions to any house, but they can be dangerous if not taken care of properly. One of the most important things that one should have installed along with a pool is a pool fence. A pool fence comes in many different materials and styles and can effectively make your swimming pool safer.

First, pool fences stop pets and children from accidentally walking into the pool. Often times, excited children that are running around the backyard accidentally walk right into a pool, and sometimes these poor children even drown. A pool fence protects from such an occurrence. It also prevents from people who are outside in the dark from accidentally falling in, thus making the pool safer for all who may use it and for those who have accidentally walked into the area. Almost just as important, the fence also keeps unwanted wildlife in the area, such as squirrels or snakes, out of the pool, thus maintaining a hygienic environment in the pool.

There are many different types of pool fences available on the market. The most common types are mesh fences, metal fences, and glass fences. Each has its own positive and negative aspects, but we recommend mesh pool fences. A mesh pool fencelooks good aesthetically and is also functional. The mesh is fine enough so that the fence can be clearly seen through without loss of visibility. Furthermore, the mesh does not have anything onto which a person can step to climb over. Thus, mesh fences prevent toddlers or animals from getting into the pool. The material used in these fences is also very difficult to rip or tear, thus guaranteeing long lasting protection.

Mesh pool fences are more desirable over glass and metal fences for many reasons. Glass fences, although giving the pool a fancy look, are dangerous in that little children may not notice the glass and my run into the fence, thus greatly hurting themselves. Since the point of the fence is to provide safety, glass fences are thus not very functional. Metal fences do provide the necessary protection, but they require much more upkeep. Metal fences are prone to rusting, which is a problem since they are kept outside even in inclement weather. To take care of them, new protective paint coats must be applied every year. Mesh fences do not have such a problem, rather they can simply be cleaned with water as often or as infrequently as desired.

It is clear that pool fences are a very important addition to any pool. Safety is a priority, and pool fences provide a peace of mind by keeping the pool safe all day, every day. A mesh pool fence does the best job in this respect, as they combine safety with ease of use and are definitely the best option.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
