Pool fencing is fencing that goes around the perimeter of your pool area. Just like with other types of fencing, this fencing is meant to restrict access to your pool. These fences are generally in place to keep out unwanted guests and pests and do a great job at making sure that your pool area stays safe. There are lots of different materials that can be used for pool fencing and, which you choose, is completely up to you and your situation.
Residential Pool Fencing
Residential pool fencing is typically constructed from a light weight material, such as aluminum or vinyl. These materials are chosen because they are, not only sturdy, but because they can do a very good job at resisting things like water splashes. Residential pool fencing is a great option for your pool because it helps to keep people, and your pool area, safe.

Commercial Pool Fencing
Commercial pool fencing, unlike residential pool fencing, is typically made from a heavier weight material like iron. This is done because commercial pools are typically outside in public, where, if left un-fence, people could just go right in to the pool. These metal fences are put in place to make sure that people who should not be in your pool are no in it. These types of fencing systems are usually seen at public pools and inside apartment complexes or community housing spaces. Commercial pool fencing can be combined with gated access to create a very good perimeter fencing system.
Modern Pool Fencing
Modern pool fencing is another great option for both commercial and residential spaces. This type of fencing is generally constructed of something like acrylic or glass. These types of fencing are installed as large panels, which are completely see through. Because of this, you not only get very good security, as acrylic and glass panels are incredibly durable and hard to climb, but you get a beautification because these panels are non obtrusive. Having a fence like this installed is a great choice, because it leaves your sight lines and views completely open, while still giving you added security.
Fencing Vs. Pool Cover
One question we get a lot is why install fencing over a pool cover. Our answer to that is that, honestly, you should have both. Pool covers are great options for keeping out debris and small critters, but they cannot often handle a lot of weight placed on them. This means that if someone got on to your pool cover, it could collapse, trapping someone inside the pool. Pool fencing, on the other hand, prevents someone from even getting to your pool in the first place. For this reason, we believe that fencing should be the first choice.
