Constructing a swimming pool at your home is a very exciting experience. Not only will a well-constructed, professionally-designed pool improve the value of your home, it will also provide months of endless fun for yourself and your family. But, in order to get the most from your new pool it is important to take the issue of safety very seriously. We’ve listed the main things that you need to know about pool fencing regulations.
Once again, you asked and we listened! Temporary pool fence is now available for hire ex-stock from Centenary Hire.
What’s more, we are pleased to make this fencing available for hire under reasonable terms and conditions. We will not demand a minimum hire duration which at times, can unnecessarily inflate hire costs. Our fencing is available to hire on a week to week basis.
We can supply all the necessary components of temporary pool fencing which are required by the pool fence rules laid out in the Australian Standard AS 1926.1-2007 – Swimming Pool Safety – Safety Barriers for Swimming Pools, right down to the CPR sign. We will even provide you with a Pool Fence Guide which will help to ensure that you install all of the fence components in a safe & compliant manner.
It is important that people understand that they have a legal responsibility to fence a pool or body of water even during construction phases or a new build or renovation project. Considering the use of temporary pool fence is therefore not only a risk management decision such as the use of temporary site fencing, it is a decision about whether or not the pool fence laws will be adhered to or ignored. Keep in mind that pool fence laws are both enforceable and designed to save lives.
