Are Mesh Pool Fences Winter-Weather Proof?

posted in: Pool Fences | 0

Having a pool fence installed in your backyard is a must for any homeowner in New York who owns a pool. Drownings are one of the leading causes of deaths in children. Which is why parents and guardians should keep in mind that just because a pool is closed for the season, doesn’t mean an accidental drowning can’t happen.

Whether you already have a mesh pool fence installed in your backyard, or you are considering having one installed this year, you may be wondering if they can survive harsh northeast winters. While some fences may weaken or even collapse under the weight of heavy snow, Life Saver’s pool fences are durable enough to withstand harsh winter conditions.

Our fences are easily removable and can be taken down, rolled up and stored for the winter months. However, this is not necessary since our mesh is made from the strongest industrial mesh currently available on the market. In fact, it has a tensile strength of over 270 pounds per square inch, and a mesh weave that is made from a strong nylon basket weave with a polyvinyl coating ensuring that the mesh is weather proof even from extreme cold.  The mesh is securely mounted on solid core reinforced aluminum poles. Additionally, the poles we use are triple-reinforced for a more solid installation. Third-party testing has shown that they are by far the strongest removable pool fence poles in the industry.

In addition to a pool fence, it is ideal to also secure you pool with a weight bearing pool cover, which  will not only keep debris out of your pool, but also will support the weight of a person should they walk on the cover. It is also a good idea to lock your pool gate in order to deter children, pets or anyone else from entering the pool area.

Pool safety is critical all year round, even after your pool has been closed for the season! Rest assured that our mesh fencing can withstand even the harshest winter. If you need to install new pool fencing, contact us today at (516) 766-5336.
