SWIMMING POOL FENCING AND GATES
Do I need a pool fence?
This used to depend on when your pool was built.
All swimming pools no matter what age MUST have a child-proof and secure pool fence and gate/s.
The fence and gate must be a child resistant pool fence that complies with the Pool Safety Standard 1926-1986 �Fences and Gates for Swimming Pools�. You should contact your local council office for further information on these standards. (links below)
Local councils control the guidelines and consent for swimming pool fencing. Various materials and designs must comply with government standards on safety.
Generally, pool fencing and gates must be at least 1.2m high from the outside ground level, and can contain no foot holds. Gates must be fitted including approved child safety catches.
