Fence Barn Announces Seminar To Educate Citizens On Strict Pool Fencing Regulations

Posted: Updated:

Fencing company ensures pool safety while helping customers avoid steep fines with new seminar.

Brisbane, QLD, Australia – March 28, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —

In light of startling statistics regarding the number of accidental drownings in both public and private swimming pools, Australia is implementing increasingly strict regulations on pool fencing. While these laws vary slightly by state, they are being enforced nationwide. The fines for failing to follow such guidelines are sizable; however, they are a small price to pay to ensure thousands of lives are saved each year. In an effort to help pool owners adhere to the regulations, Jules Lurnea of Fence Barn has announced the company now offers a seminar to teach citizens about the regulations surrounding boundary and pool fencing.

Said Lurnea, “A number of materials as well as fencing styles are popular across the country, but not all of them coordinate well with the style of certain homes. Some of these are also not appropriate for pool enclusures because they do not meet current safety regulations. Before we supply or install any type of fencing for our customers, we want to be sure they are well aware of the guidelines for their area.”

Sources indicate standard chain link fence is still widely used throughout the world for basic boundary definition; however, this option offers very little privacy or protection. Since children could easily climb this type of fencing, it lacks any of the qualities required for pool safety. Although timber fencing may be customized to meet current guidelines while offering an element of privacy and beauty, this material demands regular maintenance to sustain its appearance and structural integrity.

In areas where picket fencing is required, homeowners are trending toward the modern PVC version. Designed to look like its traditional wooden counterpart, this alternative withstands environmental factors with very little need for maintenance. Lurnea noted steel fence is becoming increasingly popular due to its resilience. The company’s most sought after product is Colorbond fencing. Available in a wide range of colors, this option easily meets the safety codes while providing style and privacy.

Glass fencing is another alternative rapidly gaining acclaim. Many pool owners are willing to conform to their local safety codes but are hesitant to alter their landscaping with traditional fencing. This option is highly resistant to the effects of weather, salt water and other environmental elements. Fence Barn offers both framed and frameless versions in industrial grade glass, which provides added safety for homes with small children and pets.

Lurnea concluded, “Homeowners should consider their particular needs as well as their style preferences and budget before settling on the type of fencing they want. We can provide information on the available materials, pricing and regulations. Clients may feel free to contact us for a price quote and for answers to any questions the may have regarding the regulations in their specific area.”
