Children are the world’s most important asset. We need to keep them safe. An area that has safety concerns can be a swimming pool area. Fencing the area around a pool is a very wise decision. A pool fence can keep predators out, and the children in if the fence is a proper design. Some of the most important design features you should have in a pool fence are:


  • Height: The higher the fence, the better. Many children like to climb and by having a tall fence, it will eliminate the possibility of children leaping out of the swimming pool area. The height of the fence will also guard against outside dangers getting in. Whether you have wild animals or human dangers that prey on children, a tall fence will be a barrier they will not cross.
  • Self closing and latching: You should always make sure the gate door closes automatically and latches itself. We all know that children have a tendency to leave doors open. With a self closing gate, you will not have to fret against an open door to the pool. It is also important that you have the ability to lock the gate too. This will keep people from entering when the pool is not in use.
  • Easy to install: Yes, you may find a fence that fits these proportions, but you need an engineering degree to install the fence. It may be so difficult that you have to hire an outside person to install it for you. It would be much better if you purchased a pool fence that meets your needs and is easy to install.


If you look for these, you will find a pool fence that will keep safety as your first priority around your pool.
