WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT POOL FENCING?

Not any fence can be a pool fence. Why? Pool fencing needs to keep little ones from accessing your pools or other bodies of water. There are a few qualities that make a fence a pool fence:

ENCLOSES YOUR POOL

It doesn’t matter if it’s aluminum, chain link, wood, or vinyl – Pool fencing has to enclose your pool. You can do this by just fencing around your pool or by fencing your enter backyard.

CANNOT EASILY BE CLIMBED

NJ pool fences must be at least 4 feet tall. There are also very specific rules in place to keep children from climbing them, such as restrictions for horizontal components and a maximum size for openings.

SELF-LATCHING AND SELF-CLOSING

To be up to code in New Jersey, your fence must be self-closing and self-latching to help keep children out of the area when adults are no present. There are plenty of safe latch options depending on your style of fence.

WE FOLLOW BOCA CODES

The BOCA National Building Code outlines safe barriers and fencing for swimming pools. You can read the BOCA code to understand why we suggested the pool fencing designs we do.

TYPES OF POOL FENCE

The most popular material we use for pool fencing is aluminum. Aluminum pool fences are strong, safe, and won’t separate parts of your yard. This is perfect for people who want to just enclose a dedicated pool area but leave other parts of their lawn open.

If you’re looking for privacy in your pool, we recommend a solid wood or PVC fence style that is over 4 feet tall so that you can relax in private. A lot of people combine privacy fences and aluminum fences when fencing their yard with a pool.
