Our fence poles are one of the major features that set us apart from the other fencing companies. Rather than having the full 1 inch hole (which is the diameter of the pole) drilled into your deck, we have come up with an innovative way to cut the diameter of the hole in half. The outside layer of our pole is a durable baked-on TGIC powder coat finish aluminum, followed by a PVC insert spanning approximately halfway up the pole, and finished with a ½” stainless steel rod that goes in the ground. The most critical part of any child safety fence pole is where the pole meets the ground. Any force exerted on the pole will have the most impact at this point. You can rest assured you have the toughest pool fence around because at that point there is aluminum, PVC and a ½” of solid stainless steel, the strongest combination available. In fact, our poles can withstand 200 lbs. of pressure. The pole design also means smaller holes and less of a scar on the face of your pool deck. Be sure your pool fence comes with ½” stainless steel rods.
ALL OF OUR POOL FENCES MEET OR EXCEED THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR TESTING AND MATERIALS (ASTM) SPECIFICATIONS F-2286
Mesh and Border
Aquaguard’s pool fence is constructed with Textilene® polyester mesh fabric utilizing a mildew resistant, UV resistant polyvinyl coating that provides years of use in the harshest sunlight and the most extreme winter. It’s woven with a continuous basket weave that boasts an incredible tensile strength rating of 270 lbs. per inch making it impossible to rip under normal use. The mesh comes in black or brown, and is bordered on all four sides by a reinforced vinyl material with a rating of 387 lbs. The border can be considered the most critical part of the pool fence. All border is QuadStitched with the strongest marine thread to allow for years of abuse from direct sunlight and the elements. Be sure your pool fence is QuadStiched.
Aquaguard’s easy-grip plastic sleeves are inserted into the holes of the deck. They maintain the integrity of the concrete and protect the finish on the poles. They are designed for easy removal and re-insertion of your pool fence. The special ridges on our sleeves help hold the sleeve in while pulling out your pole, and are specially designed to fit into our ½” stainless steel rods.
Every ground sleeve comes with a ground cap. The caps are used for those times, perhaps during a party, when you don’t want to have the fence up. Simply insert a ground cap into the sleeve to add to the overall aesthetics of your pool deck.
