Pool Safety Fence vs Pool Safety Net

Pool Safety Fence vs Pool Safety Net

The question often arises “Which is better a swimming pool safety fence or a pool safety net?”  The answer is “Both”.  While each will do the ultimate job of protecting children and pets from accidentally falling into the pool, they both have their place.   A quality pool safety net, such as Arizona Safety Fence Safety Nets, offer safety while maintaining an unobstructed view of the pool, yard, pond or water feature.  A pool safety net also takes up less space in the backyard.  A quality safety pool nets are designed with squares too small for a toddler to get their head between.  They are attached with recessed, flush mounted anchors and usually take 3 – 5 minutes to remove.  Pool safety nets should also have UV inhibitors to prevent shrinkage and deterioration.  The safety nets can also be customized for any shape pool or water feature.  While they have to be removed and put back after each use, they do provide continual protection a fence may not, such as a gate being left open or a child climbing over a fence.   Pool safety fences can be permanently installed or removable and can be made of chain link, wrought iron or mesh.  Mesh fences are the only ones that can be removable.  A mesh pool safety fence, such as Arizona Safety Fence, are less expensive than a nice powder coated wrought iron fence.  Additionally, the mesh is completely see though, preserving the views from the inside out and, more importantly, makes it easy to monitor the pool from the outside.   Some of the other benefits of  a mesh...
Removable Pool Safety Fences vs Permanent Pool Fences

Removable Pool Safety Fences vs Permanent Pool Fences

If you have a swimming pool, having a safety barrier around that pool is a must.  Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of death in children under 15.  More than half of those occur in a backyard swimming pool or spa.  Most of the incidents happen while the child’s supervisor assumed the child was safely indoors.   The debate over a permanent pool fence vs a removable mesh fence has proponents lining up on both sides.  Permanent fences such as wrought iron and chain link eliminate the hazard of “forgetting” to put the fence back in place after removal.  But the materials themselves can give a false security.  Because of the rigidity of the material, these fences can be climbed by an active child.  They also take up space in a backyard.   A removable pool safety fence offers the same protection as it’s permanent cousin, but with some added flexibility.  High quality mesh pool safety fencing, like Arizona Safety Fence of Tucson offers, can be installed and left in place permanently.  However, should you have an occasion where no children are around and you want access to the pool to be open, the pool safety fencing can be removed in a matter of a few minutes, rolled up and stored out of sight.  Once the event is over, simply roll out the fencing and reinstall it.   Another advantage of removable fencing – should your needs change or you need to reconfigure your fencing, it could be as simple as drilling new holes to accommodate the new setup.  Removable pool safety fencing can also be used for pets as...

Securing Your Pool with a Safety Fence

Securing Your Pool with a Safety Fence

With drowning as the 2nd leading cause of death in children under 15, securing your pool is a must.  A child can drown in less time than it takes to turn your back and speak to someone.   While the type of fence you choose to protect your swimming pool is important, a gate that is left open or easily opened can easily negate that.  Something as simple as debris in the gate, a rusty latch or hinge, or a gate out of alignment can cause it to not close securely.   Even the installation of the gate can make a huge difference in it’s security.  A gate that is installed to open inward, toward the pool, can make it easier for a toddler to access the pool area.  At Pool Guard, we install all our patent pending Walk-Thru Easy Access, Self Closing, Self Latching Baby Gate.  This gate can be key lockable for added protection.  The lock is installed on the inside of the gate, out of children’s reach.  Our gates are installed to open outward, so even the ingenious child that can put something in front of the gate to climb on, won’t be able to open the gate.   Gates installed in a fence are reliant on tension from the fence itself to maintain the adjustment and proper closing and latching.  If you have gate such as this, periodically check to make sure it is properly aligned and the latch is completely catching.  At Pool Guard our gate system is build within it’s on framing system.  It is designed to stay within adjustment for better protection....
