Rectangular Terminating Post
Self-Supporting – No Holes in Your Wall
Mesh pool fences cannot simply stop anywhere. They need to attach to something strong enough to hold the tension of the entire fence line. When a mesh pool fence stops at a block wall or a solid/stable wall of the house, a normal wall attachment will work. However, when a fence stops at a glass, vinyl, wood or wrought iron fence or anywhere that a wall attachment cannot be used, a different solution is necessary.
All-Safe has engineered TWO poles to securely terminate anywhere needed. Rectangular Terminating Posts are used for concrete or pavers, and Round Terminating Posts are used in dirt or grass.

Ideally a safety fence completely encloses the swimming pool. However, sometimes enclosing the entire pool is no possible or practical. For these situations, the pool fence can be attached to existing structures such as walls for fences if the existing structure is solid and stable.
If the existing structure is not stable, or drilling into the structure is not desirable, then an All-Safe Rectangular Terminating Post (RTP) can be used. Rectangular Posts are strong rigid posts that support the tension of the fence without attaching to the existing structure. RTP’s are fully removable.
The following is a list of structures where an All-Safe Rectangular Terminating Post should be considered rather than a traditional wall attachment: vinyl fences, glass fences, stucco walls, wrought iron fences, unstable wood fences, granite, slate, vinyl siding, chain link fencing and stone veneer.
