How to Design Your Pool Fence Safety Enclosure

Pool fence enclosure

Whether you designed your own swimming pool area or you moved into a home in which the previous residents were thoughtful enough to have the pool and surrounding deck ready and waiting when you arrived, you may still have some design decisions to make for your home’s pool deck decor.

If your pool requires a removable pool safety enclosure, All-Safe offers a range of durable products for creating pool fence enclosures that make pool areas safer in intelligent ways and look good doing it. Before you decide which type of safety enclosure to use, and how you want it to look, join us on this design test run for some helpful product facts and suggestions.

Designing Pool Fence Enclosures: 6 Easy Steps   

Any long-term addition that you make to your pool area will impact the safety, functionality, and aesthetics that are already present. Before you begin your own pool enclosure design, let us take you on a tour of what the process will generally bring your way, offering a how-to approach that provides helpful considerations.

Here are six easy steps for designing pool fence enclosures from All-Safe:

  1. Envision Where the Enclosure Will Be Located

Most enclosures stand in close proximity to the edge of the pool, which helps keep the patio area open when the fence is up. However, establishing the fence line is mostly up to you. Envisioning the location of the fence helps you make refined design decisions, such as which colors and product options to use, in relation to the foreground and background of the fence.   

  1. Select the Color for the New Pool Enclosure

We give you several color options for the mesh and aluminum frame of our pool safety enclosures. For our Classic Mesh Pool Fence, we offer Classic Black and Classic Brown. For our Ultra Mesh Pool Fence, we provide Ultra Black, Ultra Green, Ultra Brown, and Ultra Tan.

Choose a color palette for your enclosure that distinctively compliments the pool accessories and surrounding scenery of your pool area.

  1. Decide Between Classic Mesh and Ultra Mesh

Regarding the durable mesh that forms the fence panels, we offer two types of pool fence enclosures: Classic Mesh Pool Fence and Ultra Mesh Pool Fence. Both options are equally strong, featuring mesh that offers a clear view of the pool area beyond the fence.

The difference is that Ultra Mesh Pool Fence features mesh that is more transparent. The greater degree of transparency is especially obvious when you view the fence from a distance. Regardless of which option you choose, you’ll have a clear view of your pool area when the fence is in place.

  1. Consider Installing Angled Raised Panels

If you need a pool fence enclosure that helps keep children from accessing your pool on their own, choosing our angled raised panels is an excellent idea. The panels make it considerably harder for children to climb up and around a fenced enclosure. The panels also have a soft, attractive look that makes them a choice worth considering for design preferences alone.

  1. Need Rectangular / Round Terminating Posts?

Depending on where you want the fence line to run, you may want to choose a pool fence enclosure that features our attractively designed rectangular terminating posts or round terminating posts. We created these posts to ensure that end sections of the fence are just as secure as the sections in-between.

Rectangular posts are the best choice for end sections of fence that can’t attach to a wall. Round posts are the perfect option for fences that end in areas where dirt and grass prevent attaching end sections of fence in the traditional manner. Both options provide equal security.   

  1. Consider Including the Self-Closing Latch Gate

Our removable pool fence enclosures can be applied or removed in just a few minutes’ time, without requiring a great deal of effort. However, some pool owners prefer to have their fence in place at all times to constantly deter drowning accidents.

If you envision keeping your enclosure in place 24/7, installing a fence that includes one of our self-closing, self-latching gates is the safest option for your pool area.

This six-step process for designing a pool safety enclosure is a basic example of what your own design process could entail. Depending on how you want your pool safety barrier to look and perform, the design process could have some additional steps. It may also be an endeavor that doesn’t involve some of the optional considerations we’ve listed above.    

In addition, remember that pool fence enclosures from All-Safe can be customized for your unique wants and needs. If you have questions about any of our products that your enclosure may feature, or how the products can be customized, contact us. The initial inspection of your site that a local All-Safe dealer performs prior to the start of the project is also a good time to ask questions about products, how they can be installed, and recommendations for use.   

Receive an Estimate From a Local All-Safe Dealer

Equipping your pool with one of our pool fence enclosures starts when you call a local All-Safe dealer to schedule a free consultation. When you’re ready to have an installer take measurements and provide a cost estimate for your plans, contact a local All-Safe dealer to set the design process in motion. After the enclosure is installed, you’ll have more peace of mind, knowing that your pool is significantly less likely be the site of an accident.

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.
