We often come across news of children and pet falling into a pool and drowning. Such news pains us a lot of the tragedy and we think if only the pool owner had kept the area cordoned, away from the reach of small children or pets. It is very shocking to hear the news about children who die in such a painful and abrupt death because of sheer negligence, it is a loss which can never be replaced and pain which never heals. The New Zealand government has passed a law that it is must to protect and cover the pool area with some sort of fencing so that children or pets cannot get very close to the water body. Sometimes even elderly people who suffer problems of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease, etc. can also be susceptible to such dangers. Going by the law, it is absolutely imperative for a person to go for fencing if they have a pool in their residential enclosure.
What type of fencing must be chosen?
There are a variety of fences, when it comes to pool fencing, and chain fences are really common because they cheap and easy to install. However, they look horrible and take away from the appearance of the entire location. A pool is one of those areas in the house, where a person goes to relax and chained fences can totally take away from the entire experience. Wooden and iron fences can appear to be decorative if set up aesthetically, however, they do cut down on the surface area, making the poolside look much smaller. If the entire area doesn’t look the way it is supposed to, then it is pointless to set up a pool in itself.
Since it is obligatory by the law to set up a fence around the pool, then the best option to go for is glass pool fencing in Auckland. Glass fencing not only looks absolutely gorgeous, it doesn’t take away from the look of the pool side, and at the same time protects from children, elderly people and pets to wander at unsafe zones. It is made of a series of glass panels which look very aesthetic and appeal to the eyes, without cutting down the panoramic view of the area.
Go for the frameless option
If the fences are frameless, it will appear as if there is no demarcation between the pool and the sitting area, making it look as perfect as possible. At first glance the glass pool fencing appears as if it the panels are not there at all. One could also go for decorative connectors, to give it a different and quirky look.
Just because the material used is glass, it is highly customizable, making it the best choice for fencing. One can use different, colors, textures, designs and patterns as per their wish and customize the look of the fence in accordance to the rest of the exterior of the house.
