The backyard pool is one of the favorite places for children and pets to relax. Any entertainment by the pool happens under parental supervision, but a surprise guest or food delivery can distract an adult for 5-10 minutes, and that’s enough time for drownings or other accidents.
A pool fence installation will prevent any accidents with curious children and pets. Art Metal manufactures such safety enclosures for private and commercial in ground and above ground pools so that customers can observe all the rules of caution near the water.
Safety barriers have some advantages and characteristics that make them popular among owners of swimming pools. Let’s highlight the main ones.
With the use of galvanized or stainless steel materials, the fence is entirely maintenance-free. The construction is resistant to rust, sun, and weather conditions. The reliable attachment will not allow the fence to follow the wind, and the fence material will not deteriorate after rainy weather.
Many inground pool fencing options
The manufacture of fences is accompanied by choice of material and color of the coating. Also, if you wish, design elements are added, such as a combination of wood and metal parts. The type of attachment is matched to the surface material around the pool.
Mobility of removable structures
As a rule, an inground pool fence consists of sections (panels). Their number is calculated depending on the size and shape of the pool. The fence can be put together by yourself at the end of the summer season, and then you can replace it. The kit for pool fence installation includes plastic covers that can cover drilled holes after the removal of the fence.
The protective structure kit includes all parts for self-installation, such as a template for drilling, instructions, fasteners, hooks, and plugs to cover the holes. You will also need a hole punch and essential handy tools to fix them in the concrete or other surface. Installation time depends on the length of the fence and the number of holes to be dug in the ground. Usually, the entire process takes about half a day.
A metal mesh fence is one of the most budget-friendly options. It is slippery enough to protect children when trying to climb over the fence. The inground pool fence cost varies depending on the manufacturer, type of material, and design parameters.

Our company has long been determined to manufacture fences with the most practical materials. The top three are:
Metal. Fences made of iron, aluminum, or steel are considered the most robust, reliable, and cost effective. They have anti-corrosive properties and are almost not subject to mechanical damage. Prevalent are mesh fences. They are slippery, soft, and the safest for children. Mesh makes it impossible to climb the fence and gain access to the pool without a gate key.
Frosted or clear glass. Such fences are also characterized by durability and strength. Pool fences for inground pools made of glass tend to be more expensive, difficult to install, and not easily removable. The main advantages are the incredible view of the pool and the combination with any design around it.
Combined materials. Fences can be made of metal and wooden elements. For example, steel mesh with ornaments on top. If customers want to add exclusivity and implement design ideas, the use of such combinations will decorate the area near the ground pool.
We will apply inscriptions or pictures for the decoration, as well as implement any of your wishes. Ask us for a free consultation, and we will come up with more ideas for the arrangement and protection of the ground pool!
One of the advantages of fences near the pool is their independent contractor installation. It is possible if you buy simple metal structures in the form of mesh. Stainless steel screws are used as fasteners of the posts to the surface assuming there is a concrete pad underneath. The kit includes fasteners, measuring templates, and detailed instructions.
The fence can be adjusted to the desired width and high if you choose the standard version. In addition to the fence comes a gate with hinges for automatic closing and a lock to ensure access.
