Pool Safety and Fencing
The Pool Fencing Regulation have just gone under a review and have been revised but the individual Councils still have their own interpretations which can change so this makes it very difficult for us to be sure of just what they may require for your project even if we had one approved last week. We can advise on the typical requirements but a pre-inspection although it costs is still a prudent choice to get things clarified before permits are applied for.
Open rail and bar types made from galv.steel and powder coated aluminium have been widely used but glass has become more popular for those sections where the clear views are paramount, and costs have come down. Where a solid fence is required Panel-Rock is ideal and for a more natural look is desired Brustics www.brustics.co.nz has several choices.
In the new Standards alarms may acceptable as a back-up, see www.sensor-espio.com and with self-closing sliding doors www.swishautomation.com.
Glass provides a natural, barrier-less effect. Giving security whilst not removing the view or adding lines.
Open Rail and Bar
Electronic Pool Security
Doors from your home leading into the pool area must reach regulation requirements.
There are many innovative ideas for pool safety from such door. Please read this pdf for ideas.
DoorMinder Alarm function
Where DoorMinder is installed, an alarm activates within
10 seconds of the door being opened or unlatched, and
a siren sounds at 85dB+ to warn that the pool area is
accessible. The siren will not sound if the door is opened
and closed immediately. The alarm resets automatically,
whether or not the alarm is activated. Swish DoorMinder
is an approved pool access safety measure only when
combined with the Swish SelfLatch (see pdf).
