If you have a pool on your property, safety should be a top priority. Having a barrier around a pool is essential to keep children out of harm’s way. Installing a glass pool fence can give you peace of mind.
A Glass Fence Can Keep Kids out of the Pool
Glass fencing is made with smooth panels. Since there are no spaces or grooves, it’s virtually impossible for a child to climb a glass fence. That can give you confidence that kids (either yours or your neighbors) won’t be able to get into the pool unless an adult lets them in.
A glass fence has a self-closing and self-latching gate. That’s an important safety feature that can give you added peace of mind. You won’t have to wonder if you closed the gate and go outside to check. You’ll be able to rest assured that the gate is closed every time.
Tempered Glass Is Strong and Safe
Glass fencing is made with tempered glass, which is much stronger than standard glass. It can resist an impact from a blowing branch or another type of object. Tempered glass is unlikely to break, but if it does, it breaks into small pieces with round edges. That makes tempered glass much less likely to cut someone than standard glass, which breaks into sharp pieces.
You’ll Have a Clear View of the Pool Area
If you have young kids, you want to know what they’re up to so you can intervene if necessary. With a glass fence, you’ll be able to see the area in and around the pool, even if you’re in another part of the yard or inside the house. Since the glass panels are clear, there won’t be anything blocking your view. If a child sneaks into the pool area while the gate is open or tries to climb the fence, you’ll be able to see what’s going on and step in.
Safety Should Be a Priority, Even If You Don’t Have Kids
Whether you have children of your own or not, you should have a barrier around your pool. A pool is an attractive nuisance – something that’s appealing to children and can also cause them harm. As a homeowner with a pool, you have a legal obligation to put a barrier around your pool to keep children out. If you don’t have a fence and a child drowns, you can be held liable, even if the child was trespassing and entered the pool without your knowledge.
