What is the Australian standard on pool fencing?

The current Australian Standard AS1926-2012 (the standard) is in place as the standard in NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia and the ACT. In these jurisdictions, the standard is called up by the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and in many cases, there are local variations effected under legislation. Northern Territory operates under AS1926.1 – 1993.

Queensland has its own standard in place which is a modified version of AS 1926-2007 combined with a state standard QDC MP 3.4.

If you are the owner of the property note it is your responsibility to put up a sign saying “this swimming pool is not to be occupied or used”

What type of fence should I install around my pool?

Depending on what pool you have, varies on the type of fence you should install. If you have a salt water based pool – it’s recommended to install an aluminium fence to avoid corrosion. 

If your pool is chlorine based, it’s safe to install a steel fence around it. If you need clarification or a better understanding of what’s best suited for your place, give us a call or pop into one of our showrooms.

Do you need a sign around your pool?

All pool fencing should include an appropriate and clear warning sign. 

In case of an emergency the law requires that you have a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) sign displayed near your pool. The sign must be in good condition and able to be read easily from 3 metres.

What type of lock do i need for my pool gate?

To ensure your gate meets the standards your gate;
