Gates are essential to any fencing system- how else could someone enter and exit? But with pools, gates can be a barrier that keeps curious and inexperienced swimmers from a fatal accident. Pool safety fences have been around and popular with homeowners for a while, but no one ever mentions pool gates. Without a gate, no one could ever enter the pool area, including adults who know how to swim! There are some types of pool safety fences that do not come with gates, so it is important to mention that getting a pool gate needs to be considered too, if you are thinking of purchasing a pool safety fence.

How Do Pool Gates Keep People Safe?
Ever been to a resort or hotel’s swimming pool and saw that they had a low glass railing around the pool? That is technically a pool fence, but is more decorative, as it is so low that children could easily step over it. That is an example of bad pool safety fencing, but unfortunately, that is commonly seen. In order for pool safety fences to be effective, they need to be higher than what a child could jump so they can’t leap and try to climb over it. Even wrought iron fences that are tall enough can be climbed over by dexterous and determined kids. Here at DFW Fence Repair, we install pool safety fences with a pool gate that self-closes and self-latches to prevent any precocious kids or animals trying to run past before the door shuts. The latches and frames are made of rust-proof aluminum, so there is no chance that the pool safety gate could stop working and give a chance for an accident to occur.
