POOL FENCE UK – A PHYSICAL BARRIER


Swimming pools, ponds and water features in the garden are generally regarded as areas for fun, fascination to give pleasure whilst relaxing. The problem with water, however, is that it causes its own set of dangers. When it comes to keeping things out, there is no substitute for a physical barrier. Although covers are available they may present a temptation to young children to walk over the water and put themselves at serious risk. Parents and grandparents need the peace of mind to know that their children and pets are safe in the garden. With this in mind Protect A Child has developed a fencing system over the past 25 years to help homeowners keep their pool areas safe thereby minimising the possibility of accidents.


The system is simple and uses top quality materials. The posts are made of fibreglass with built in colour resin that will not fade. They are virtually unbreakable and will not distort so the fence will always look straight and attractive. The mesh used is a PVC-coated polyester material which cannot be torn, having a border using marine rated vinyl and UV stable thread. All screws and latches are made of high quality stainless steel. The system comes with a lifetime guarantee.


Flexibility is a major factor, it can be installed into slabs or paving around a pool, but can also be used across lawns or even through flower beds. The use of concrete pads or a small concrete filled trench will be required to achieve this but it can then be painted to blend in with the background. Once the fencing has been installed the fact that it is easily removable when not required is a further benefit which customers approve of.


SAFETY TURTLE FROM SAFEWATER ALARMS


Safewater Alarms’ main product that they sell and promote is the Safety Turtle which protects the person and not the pool. This can start from a baby and go right up to the elderly – it can even protect family pets. The device, which is designed in the shape of a turtle, is secured to the wearers wrist using a wrist strap and a special locking key. The base station is then positioned within the home or with a battery pack taken outside the confines of the property i.e. boating, to a hotel pool or walking by rivers. Once the Turtle enters the water it sends a wireless signal to the base station and sets the base station into alarm mode alerting people to a potential drowning incident. The Safety Turtle is not limited to the amount of Turtles to one base station as long as they are all the
