How a Pool Cover and a Pool Fence Can Enhance Safety and Security


How Pool Security Fencing & Covers Enhance Safety

A pool on your property is a relaxing and enjoyable private retreat. Unfortunately, pools can also be dangerous if you’re not careful. Don’t let potential dangers get in the way of your family fun by taking certain precautions with a pool security cover or fence before it’s time for a swim.

Add a Pool Cover or Net

There is always a risk of people or pets falling into the pool. This is especially dangerous for young children, particularly when they are unattended. Even worse, children may decide to play by the pool or swim on their own without supervision by an adult. One-third of accidental deaths among children age 1-4 in 2014 was due to drowning. The majority occurred in home swimming pools.

You can avoid this potential disaster by keeping a pool cover or net in place over your pool. Should a person fall in unintentionally, the cover will prevent them from submerging. They can then make their way over to the edge or call out for help.

Types of Pool Covers

There are many different types of pool covers, all varying in price and offering distinct advantages They can also be used in addition to pool security fencing. Mesh covers are some of the most popular kinds because they are well-priced, long-lasting, and exceptionally durable.

Automatic covers are some of the best pool security covers available because they are easy to use and also help preserve water levels & temperature. With the press of a button, you can have your pool cover close off the entire pool. It’s important to commit to a pool safety barrier that you know will actually use every time.


Install a Pool Fence

Another security measure you can consider is the addition of a pool security fence. These structures prevent people from getting in or even close to your pool, so the potential for accidents is greatly reduced. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing unwanted visitors can’t easily get in your pool without your permission.

Types of Pool Fences

Just like with pool covers, there are many great types of fences to choose from, and they can be installed in addition to a pool security cover.

We recommend mesh fencing because it is remarkably strong and durable. The mesh weave is tight to prevent children from getting a handhold and climbing over it and does not impede the view of your pool.

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.
