When installing a swimming pool a child-resistant barrier is required under NSW legislation when a pool is capable of holding 300mm or more of water. It is not always possible or practical to have a permanent fence in place, particularly during the construction phase. Temporary pool fencing is often the most practical and cost-effective solution.

Industry Leading Temporary Fencing Technology

The innovative locking cap was developed by Cap Fencing as a result of in-depth research and liaison with pool installers to design a system that was simple to use, yet safe and effective. The system was designed to be the easiest in today’s market and has since proven to be the most user-friendly temporary pool fencing system available.

Assembly and disassembly are as easy as the click of a button, but completely compliant and child-resistant at the same time. There are no nuts and bolts and set up is possible in a matter of minutes.

The panels, which are 2.5 meters wide by 1.3 meters high, are easily manoeuvrable as the entire fencing system is constructed of aluminium which makes it light-weight, strong and appealing to the eye. At the same time, the system exceeds all local council, Health & Safety and State and Federal Government pool fencing strength and dimensional requirements.
