Cooling the debate on rural pool temporary fencing

Compliant pool fencing is a topic of great debate at the moment. It is seen by many as an unnecessary precaution, considering the proximity and access to our rivers and the sea. However, whether you like it or not, it is a requirement to fully fence all swimming pools with compliant pool fencing.

As part of the regulation, all pools must be fully fenced and meet the pool fence requirements as soon as the water goes in, regardless of whether the building works have been completed. This is not easy because you still need access to the pool area to complete the work, but you also need a compliant pool fence.

What’s the solution? Temporary fencing for a pool

The GHL Temp Fence temporary pool fence, as you can see from the photos, is self-standing and very easy to erect and dismantle. The fence can be dismantled during the day to complete the building and landscaping, then it can be put back into place at night or when vacant.

This flexibility ensures the landscaping and building process is as simple as it can be. The temporary fence has the potential be relocated a number of times before the pool is completed and before the permanent fence has been erected.

An addition to the temporary fence hire range of pool fencing is the self-closing gate fitted with a child safety lock, so access to the pool for swimming can be continued during the construction.
