Iron Pool Fence
Affordable Fence and Gates has been securing swimming pools of Southern Arizona for over 20 years. We work with closely with most of the pool builders in the Tucson area during the pool construction process, as well as many homeowners who have purchased a home that has a swimming pool without a proper pool fence barrier.
Unlike many of our competitors, we have a large selection of beautiful fencing options that will add a decorative flare to your backyard oasis and still meet the requirements of local pool code. In addition to an online gallery with decades of pictured examples of our work, we are also one of the only fencing contractors in town with a large staffed showroom and many examples that you can see in person.
Securing swimming pools in order to help prevent drownings is our utmost priority. Because safety is such a key component of this product, it is important to select a contractor that is truly an expert in local pool codes. Yes, that’s right codes…plural. Each municipality has its own pool code, and they are all different. Different height requirements, different hardware requirements, etc.
Hiring the wrong contractor can turn a relatively straight forward fencing installation into a nightmare of delays and return inspection visits, not to mention vulnerabilities in the safety of the pool barrier. The pool fence is usually the last step in a new pool construction project. The last thing that any homeowner wants is to delay filling their new pool because of a preventable error on the part of their fencing contractor.
Affordable Fence and Gates works on many new construction pools, and we thoroughly understand the different pool codes in each area. All our Ornamental Iron Pool Fence includes fully welded pickets, pressed steel caps (the paint on the plastic ones our competitors use will flake off and the caps will deteriorate in the sun). Colored fence paint includes a high zinc primer and Dunn Edwards paint top coat. Adding a nice curved fence line to compliment the flowing edges of a pool deck, or an arch to your gate allows your pool barrier to blend with the landscape and the design elements of the home.
he safest locking system for a pool gate is called a Manga Latch. It requires two hands to open, comes with a standardized key, and cannot be “bounced” open by a child standing on the bottom rail of the gate. Because this is the safest option, it is strongly recommended to be installed on all our pool gates. Gates are also installed with a spring, or an option for a hydraulic closer so that they are self-closing. A properly designed and installed pool barrier can do more than provide safety for your family, it can add a fantastic and appealing accent to any yard.
