About the Value of Pool Fence Safety
Water safety is extremely important to everyone at Life Saver Pool Fence. Our strong, mesh pool fencing is designed to be both strong and durable, yet lightweight enough to remove when it’s not needed. Put simply, it’s a wonderful mix of safety and convenience.
A pool fence should provide a barrier to entry to the water area of a backyard. As you can see in our first pool fence safety cartoon, little ones and pets love sneaking into places they don’t belong. That’s true even if it could be dangerous. In fact, it might be even more enticing to them if it seems forbidden.
That’s where a strong mesh pool fence can help. Put simply, the mesh is the most important bit. Leaving a fence exposed to the elements over time will eventually cause some general wear-and-tear.
The trick is that you want your fence to be made of a mesh that doesn’t tear or blow over during inclement weather. A proper mesh should be able to withstand strong pushes, attempted climbings, and years of Mother Nature’s abuse. For this reason, Life Saver Pool Fence uses Textilene® mesh.
The 12-12 mil nylon mesh that is woven with a basket weave provides the tightest mesh available, ensuring a lifetime of worry-free use for homeowners. Contact Life Saver Pool Fence today to learn more about our pool safety fences.
Additional Layers of Security
One final note is that a pool fence should never be your only line of defense against drownings. Adding multiple layers of security can really help to reduce the risk of danger to you and your loved ones. After all, drowning is preventable. Here are a few additional ways to help keep people safe in the pool area:
- Add high locks to all of the doors and windows that lead to the pool.
- Add alarms on the doors and windows that access the pool.
- Place an extra alarm inside the pool to warn if someone is in the water.
- Swimming lessons should be given as early as you and your pediatrician feel comfortable doing so. Infant swim lessons start training babies to roll over and float earlier than you might think.
- Having CPR training can save a life.
