Pool Fence Requirements

Pool fence requirements vary from state to state, we know all New South Wales requirements and Sydney council rules. These rules exist to avoid accidents in the pool and keep children and animals from getting into the pool area.

Keep your family safe by getting high-quality fencing installed around your pool.

There are a few general rules that you should be aware of when selecting pool fencing. Your pool fence must be at least 1.2 metres high off the ground, whether it is on a deck or a lawn. This height was set to be tall enough that young children will be unable to climb over it.

Your pool edge must be at least a metre away from the fence. Many people like to use the boundary fence as part of the pool fence to save space. It is possible to do this, but it needs to meet the same pool fencing requirements.

The gate on a pool fence needs to be self-closing. This prevents the risk of it being left open and a child wandering unsupervised into the pool area.

We have been pool fencing Sydney backyards for years. Our friendly customer service team can help ensure your pool is up to standard.

Materials

Pool fences can be made from many different types of materials. What you choose will depend on your tastes and budget.

Glass fencing is becoming highly popular due to their subtle but modern aesthetic. Semi frameless glass pool fencing is constructed from durable toughened glass that can last through any type of weather. This style of glass fence won’t break or shatter, making it an extremely safe fencing option around Sydney.

An aluminium pool fence is the easy to maintain, low-cost alternative to glass pool fencing. This is a low-maintenance material that lasts throughout the seasons without rusting or showing a lot of wear and tear. It’s a great choice if you are placing the fence on sloping or uneven ground.

Steel is another material for fence panels that looks nice, and strong enough for all weather conditions. It is strong and long-lasting and can also suit a sloped landscape. However, you will need to add a galvanised coating to prevent the steel from rusting. It’s also a relatively expensive fencing material compared to other options.
