Our aluminium panels, gates, and posts are not only tough and rust free but they are made from 6063 T6 aluminium and designed specifically for pool surrounds. Rails are 38 x 25mm with 16mm pickets passing through the rails and welded in 6 points. Panels are manufactured to 1200mm high to comply with AS1926.1(2012). Panel widths are 2440mm and 3000mm or we can manufacture to size if required. Gates have a standard width of 970mm/1000mm to suit a 1040mm opening, or we can manufacture to size to suit your opening.
The posts and the gate hardware comply with Australian Standards as well. Our aluminium post range is available in a 50 x 50mm square profile for inground or base plates. Whilst our gate hardware completes our tubular pool fencing range, we ensure safety is a priority by using hinges and latches that are manufactured by Safe Tech pool top safety latches.

Swimming pool fences started to become compulsory in the 1990s when legislation was first introduced. In 2010 a new standard was introduced which saw one pool safety standard that governed not only backyard pools but also hotels, motels, and homestays.
Today, your pool needs to be registered, complies with the law and issued a safety certificate (under certain circumstances). You can register your pool online here or if you are uncertain, you can search the database to see if it is already registered. If you would like to check if your pool barrier complies, click here to do a free online pool compliance checklist. Under certain circumstances, you may be required to supply a pool safety certificate. For the full facts of when you are required to provide a pool safety certificate or you can look up online the local Pool Inspectors and discuss with them how to obtain a pool safety certificate.
Here is a great resource for pool safety and compliance. Please feel free to read through it and if you have any questions please feel free to contact our friendly staff at Dog Gone Fencing.

If your new fence is a boundary fence that you share with a neighbour, ensure that you have informed them of your intentions. You can use our “Good Neighbour Policy” as a guide to help you.
Consult with a surveyor if your boundary lines are in any way unclear. Just because there is an existing fence, does not mean it was constructed on the correct boundary line.
