Swimming Pools require secure Fences.
Here is what you will need to protect your family and others.
Design Standards Shows in Illustration:
The top of a pool fence must be at least 48 inches above grade, measured on the side of the fence that faces away from the swimming pool.
When the release mechanism of the self-latching device is less than 54 inches above grade, the release mechanism for the gate should be at least 3 inches below the top of the gate and installed on the side facing the pool. Also, the gate and fence should have no opening greater than ½ inch within 18 inches of the latch release mechanism.
If there are any decorative cutouts in the fence, the space within the cutouts should not exceed 1¾ inch.
The spacing between vertical fence members should not exceed 4 inches.
Gates should open out from the pool and should be self-closing and self-latching.
The maximum clearance at the bottom of the fence should not exceed 4 inches if installed over a solid surface (i.e. concrete) or 2 inches if installed over a soft surface (i.e. grass).
Other standards not portrayed in this illustration include:
For a Chain Link Fence, the mesh size should not exceed 1¼ inches square,
Maximum opening in latticework should not exceed 1¾ inch
Power safety covers can be installed on pools to serve as safety barriers. Power safety covers should conform to the specifications in ASTMF 1346-91.
