Pool Fence Installation

A four-sided pool fence is required in Victoria subject to the requirements of the Building Regulations 2018. However, that does not mean that it can’t look great and be super functional!

Tube fences when used as a barrier for your pool are highly functional and a great safety feature. Not only will it keep out children and pets is can also provide a high level of visibility through the fence so that you can see what is going on in the pool from outside the fence.

 Tube fencing is quite simple and easy install can give you peace of mind about the safety of your pool.

Types of pool fences

Glass Pool Fencing

Glass pool fences are becoming a very popular option, especially for more upmarket style homes. Toughened safety glass is used for this application as it is highly durable and impact resistant. It is available in semi-framed or frameless options depending on what you prefer. 

Aluminium Pool Fencing

Aluminium tube fencing is another common option that is also a bit cheaper than glass and suitable as pool fencing. Available a wide range of colours and designs.
