Aluminum Pool Fence
A swimming pool is a wonderful addition to your home and you want to ensure the safety of those you love by installing an aluminum pool fence around it. Most pool codes or boca codes require that pool fence should be at least 48 inches tall, have a bottom horizontal rail that is no more than three inches from the ground. Most pool codes want 45 inches between the two innermost rails so a child can’t get a foothold and pull themselves over. Picket spacing is 3 13/16 to make the less than 4 inch spacing required by pool code.
You will need to comply with your local building codes, BOCA codes, or your homeowner organization pool fence codes. Generally the higher the aluminum pool fence (54″, 57″,60″, or 72″), the more secure it is. All pool code gates need to have self-closing hinges with a magnetic closing latch, so the gate can not be easily left open. The handle to unlatch the gate needs to be at least 54 inches high to prevent children from opening it. All FenceTown gates come with spring adjustable self closing hinges.
