Pool safety fence is the only type of pool fence designed specifically for use around swimming pools to help prevent child and/or pet access. Removable pool fences use a series of sections ranging from 6' to 15' in length connected at the top by a child-proof latch. Each section consists of a number of poles spaced at regular intervals and mounted into plastic or aluminum inserts that are core drilled into the pool deck or other substantial surface and a mesh material that stretches across those poles. The fence is made sturdy by the extreme tension it is manufactured and installed under. Mesh pool fence comes in many different colors, including black, white, green, tan, and brown. The mesh itself is made to be nearly transparent, especially in the darker colors. The support poles are normally made of either aluminum or fiberglass. Aluminum support poles are often powder coated different colors for pool owners' aesthetic preference.
