Choosing the Right Tubular Fencing

For Central Coast residents, picking the right tubular fencing is essential because of the area’s salty air and high humidity. Using materials like aluminium or galvanised steel can prevent rust and require less upkeep. The right fence will not only offer security and look good but also comply with local rules and boost property value while handling the local weather conditions.

How to Choose the Suitable Tabular Fencing for Your Pool

Understand about Safety and Compliance

When picking the right tubular fencing for your pool, you want to make sure it’s safe, durable, and looks good, plus it needs to follow local rules. Start by checking with your local council and make sure the fence meets Australian Standards (AS1926.1) for pool safety. This includes things like the right height, non-climbable zones, and gate specs. Your fence should be at least 1.2 metres high to stop kids from climbing over. Also, make sure the gate closes and latches on its own, and the latch should be high enough so young kids can’t reach it.

Knowing the Material

When choosing the material for your pool fence, you have a few great options. Aluminium is a good choice because it’s lightweight, doesn’t rust, and needs very little upkeep, making it perfect for the humid, chlorinated area around pools. Powder-coated steel looks nice and is very durable, but you might have to do a bit more maintenance to keep it from rusting. Stainless steel is extremely durable and rust-resistant, but it’s also the most expensive option.

Decide the Design

When it comes to design and looks, pick a style that matches your pool area and home. Popular styles include flat top, loop top, and double rail. You can get powder-coated finishes in many colours to match your outdoor decor. Also, choose a design that keeps the area safe but doesn’t block the view of the pool, like vertical bars with the right amount of space between them.

Durability and Maintenance is Everything

Look for fences with powder coating or galvanising to prevent rust and corrosion. Think about how easy it is to take care of. Aluminium fences usually need less upkeep than steel ones.

Is Your Pool’s Tabular Fencing Durable? Here’s How to Find Out

If you want to know if your pool’s tubular fencing is durable, here’s what to look for. 

First, check the material. High-grade aluminium is a solid choice because it doesn’t rust and holds up well, especially marine-grade aluminium for wet, chlorinated areas. Galvanised steel is also good since it has a zinc coating to prevent rust. Stainless steel is super durable and rust-resistant, but it’s pricier.

Next, look at the coating and finish. A high-quality powder-coated finish will keep your fence from rusting, chipping, and fading. For steel fences, make sure they’re properly galvanised for extra protection against rust.

The construction and design are really important too. Check the welds—smooth, even welds without gaps mean strong joints that can handle stress and exposure. Thicker pickets are stronger, so make sure the spacing between them meets safety standards and consider closer spacing for more durability.

By keeping these things in mind, you can be sure your pool’s tubular fencing is durable and built to last.
