Child pool safety is more important now than ever before. As more home owners and buyers purchase recreational swimming pools, the problem grows larger each year. Guardian Pool Fences use mesh fencing and a patented self-closing gate system to reduce risk.
Pool safety devices can save lives. Pool fencing is especially important for young children. According to the U.S. Government, drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for children under the age of five in California, Arizona and Florida. States with fewer home pools are also dealing with the problem. Nationally, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental deaths to children under five years of age. Between 1990 and 1998 there were 5,803 children five years of age or under that were drowning victims in the United States.
What makes your pool safe to play in is having the right fence and the right gating system. Guardian has developed a mesh fencing and self-closing gate system that customers throughout the U.S. have found to be a consistently effective solution to the problem pool safety. Their patented pool fence systems includes support rods and self-closing gate. The result is a longer lasting, more protective and substantial barrier against drowning.
Guardian Pool Fence Systems, Inc. is the only manufacturer of removable mesh fencing to have the original self-closing gate specifically designed and engineered to operate with a removable mesh fencing system.
This type of fence operates on tension; the mesh fabric is tighter in colder weather and loses some tension in warmer weather. According to our engineers, a conventional single pole designed gate would require constant adjustment. Removing a single pole gate for a pool party and then having to re-install it afterwards compounds the problem of potential gate failure. The Guardian Pool Fence Systems patented gate system doesn’t depend on the tension of the fence around it.
"My personal experience with a close associate whose child drowned has led us to continue to make improvements on every facet of Guardian's pool fence systems," says Steve Sadinsky, President of the company. "We spend significant amounts of time, money, and talent in the pursuit of more effective barriers. This helps our clients achieve superior results in their pool safety goals."
Safety fences from Guardian have proven to be three times more durable than any other type of safety system now available on the market. Poles are constructed with T6 marine grade aluminum, as well as the gate frame and other components coated in plastic to resist corrosion and come with the industries longest available warranty. Less substantial poles and barriers tend to break down after just a few years, requiring more maintenance.
