If you have a swimming pool on your property, you need to consider pool fencing and the kind of material you would prefer to have it in. Different types of materials are used to build pool fencing but the choice is yours. It all depends on your budget and the affordability of the materials being used.

Pool fencing and pool railings are required by law in Australia. Essentially, a pool fence or railing must prevent small children unaccompanied by adults from entering the pool area. As such the Australian Standards have certain specifications that must be adhered to while building a pool fence. So long as you conform to the Australian standards laid down for pool fencing, you can select any material that you fancy.

When we consider the different materials that can be used for pool fencing, nothing beats the affordability of aluminium fencing and pool railings. The affordability of aluminium fencing and pool railings is reinforced by the several benefits it offers.

Aluminium is a versatile material, it is durable and lightweight. It does not corrode even if it is constantly exposed to the elements, making it an ideal choice for pool fences and railings. And, since it is long-lasting and does not corrode, your pool fencing and railings will continue to look good for years. Additionally, aluminium can be coated with special material that can increase its durability. Your aluminium pool fencing is clearly an affordable option since it is a one-time expense.

Although it is durable, aluminium is not as strong as steel and can be easily bent. Generally it is used for demarcating areas for privacy or creating enclosures for yards where security is not the issue. As such, aluminium is the ideal material for pool fencing since you need it to take care of the safety and privacy and not the security aspect.

Pool fencing can also be made out of galvanised steel but it is much more expensive than aluminium. So if you are on a tight budget but still need to conform to the Australian standards for pool fencing, aluminium fencing and pool railings are a very affordable option.

Aluminium fencing and pool railings are easy to set up, but rather than do it yourself, it is a better to get it professionally installed. Repairing your aluminium pool fencing is not too difficult – damaged sections of the fence can easily be replaced with a new one. Since aluminium is completely recyclable, you can be assured of leaving no carbon footprint at all. That's a big plus for the environment!
