Why You Should Install a Pool Fence this Fall
Summer has come to a close, and the months spent by the pool are now over (until next year, of course). Did you ever find yourself at the pool, thinking, “you know what would make this better? A fence.” If so, you’re not alone. Over the years, we’ve had many customers who have thought the same thing.
At Everlasting Fence Company, we’ve been performing wooden fence installation in Bucks County, PA and the surrounding areas for years. We install many different types of fencing, using all different sorts of material. When you hire us for your next fencing project, you can be sure that we will do the job right the first time.
The Benefits of Installing a Pool Fence
A pool fence, just like all other fences, can have a multitude of functions and benefits. These include but are not limited to:
- Keeping someone or something out
- Keeping someone or something in
- Offering privacy
- Creating aesthetic value
- Marking property lines
Pool fences are unique in the fact that other than these primary functions, they also have been known to keep people, specifically children, much safer. In fact, the CDC released a report with a study that noted that isolating a pool with a fence can reduce the chance of drowning by 83%.
Our Custom Pool Fences
Our pool fence services can range from wooden fence installation in Chester County, PA to a more traditional metal or PVC fence. Despite the options that you have to customize your new fence to your liking, there are some standards that we implement for each pool fence that we install. They include:
- Matching fence height to the BOCA National Build Code standard or 48 inches
- Openings between slats that are less than 4 inches
- Maximum of a 2-inch clearing from fence, gates, or posts to ground
- Open-out gates that are self-closing/latching
- Locks and latches put at a minimum of 54 inches above ground
All of these practices help keep children safe and ensures safe play outside of the home.
