While your swimming pool is likely one of the most enjoyable aspects of your home, it is unfortunately also one of the most dangerous. In fact, a swimming pool that is not protected by a safety barrier is more dangerous to a child than a loaded gun. Additionally, drowning is a leading killer in children under the age of five.
The statistics are even scarier when presented with the fact that 69% of fatal drownings occur when the parents were responsible for supervising their child. The unfortunate reality is supervision fails and is not enough to act as the sole means for protecting your family from an accidental drowning.
The good news is that by implementing multiple layers of protection on your property and around your pool drowning is preventable. We recommend the following five layers of protection for every home with a pool:
- Constant supervision of children when outdoors or playing in the pool.
- Installing pool safety fencing around your pool.
- Installing a pool alarm.
- Providing your infant with professional swimming instruction.
- Ensuring all parents, guardians and caretakers know how to do CPR.
Mesh Pool Fences - The Lifesaver Pool Fence Difference
When it comes to choosing a pool fence, a mesh pool fence is an ideal choice for any home. Our mesh pool fences are made of a Textilene mesh which is a 12-12 mil nylon mesh with a polyvinyl coating woven with a basket weave. A basket weave is the most intensive mesh to mil. This is the tightest mesh available it has no wrinkles and is the highest tensile strength. It is dual directional and ensures a lifetime of worry-free use.
Additional Features of a Life Saver Pool Fence
When it comes to the poles we use in our fences, we utilize High-Performance Solid Poles which offer omnidirectional solid support. These poles are three times stronger than the industry standard quad-core pole and provide three layers of support. Not only is there is no other stronger pole available, but we also back it with a lifetime warranty.
The borders and stitch of your mesh pool fence help to support the fence and prevent sagging. It is also important that the borders are able to withstand wear and tear, as well as various weather conditions. All Life Saver mesh pool fences have a Quadruple Marine Stitched Reinforced Vinyl Border with Embossed Nylon and Leather Grain with 4-stitch borders cover 4 lines of stitching; using this method on a 12-12 mil ensures a lifetime of use. There is embossed nylon in the border that has hundreds of fine threads of nylon inside the border material to prevent cracking and weathering due to harsh summers or winters.
The latches are another important component of your fence system and are used to prevent children from opening the fence. At Life Saver, all of our fences have a Perma-Lock latch which is the highest level of security can be found in the industry. It requires a stainless steel lock that requires a tool to open it and exceeds the requirements for nearly all codes and laws, including the country’s newest revisions. The Perma-Lock is typically used in conjunction with a self-closing, self-latching gate.
The gate is the most important piece of any fence system. We offer two options for our customers. The standard option is our Double Truss Square Stock. This gate uses the most aluminum material in the industry and is framed on all four sides giving the gate the most support available. All of the components of the gate sit on a flat surface, and there is no bar across the bottom and the latch can be lifted high up making it harder for a child to reach.
We also offer an Arched Gate as an upgraded option of the Double Truss Square Stock gate, so homeowners can not only have the safest gate available on the market, but a great looking one as well.
