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.

Rectangular Post Installation example

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.

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.
