Pools provide a great opportunity for families to entertain, relax and create lifelong memories. However, pools also come with risks—especially when children are involved. It’s imperative that parents keep a close watch on their kids when they are near any body of water, whether it be in a swimming pool or even a bucket of water. Drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages 1-4 years old, so taking precautionary measures is essential to keeping your family safe.
There are several safety tips that parents should follow to reduce the risk of drowning accidents: supervise young swimmers at all times; install fences around the pool; install safety covers over the pool; teach children basic swimming skills; have life jackets or floaties available for younger swimmers, and make sure there is no running or roughhousing around the pool area.
Glass pool fencing is one of the most effective and stylish ways to protect children from accidentally falling into pools. This type of fencing provides a secure barrier while allowing you to see directly into the pool area. Not only does it provide extra safety for your children, but also offers an attractive addition to your backyard.
Installing glass pool fencing is relatively easy and can be done with minimal disruption to the existing landscape or decking. Once installed, glass fences require very little maintenance beyond occasional cleaning with a damp cloth or soap and water solution. The glass panels are resistant to rust and corrosion, making them ideal for outdoor use in all climates and weather conditions. Additionally, no painting or staining is required for this type of fences like other types of materials such as wood or aluminium fences.
Advantages of Glass Pool Fencing
Having a pool in the backyard can be a great way to relax and have fun with family and friends. However, having an open pool without any fencing can present safety challenges. Glass pool fencing is one of the best ways to keep your pool safe and secure while still allowing you to enjoy your backyard oasis. Here are some of the advantages of glass pool fencing:
Glass fence panels provide a modern, stylish look that enhances the aesthetics of your outdoor area and gives it an upscale look. The clear view offers unobstructed sight lines so you don’t miss out on any views or activities outside the fence line while providing maximum security for your loved ones. Additionally, glass is extremely durable and scratch-resistant which makes it ideal for areas with high winds or close proximity to trees as well as areas exposed to salt water from swimming pools. As with most pool fencing materials, glass is designed to resist the elements so it can withstand exposure to water and moisture without rusting. This is a great alternative to wood and metal fencing styles, which can be prone to warping, rotting or rusting. The glass panels are manufactured using 3/8-inch thick tempered safety glass for maximum strength and durability.
