Do I Need A Pool Fence?

Do I Need A Pool Fence?

Installing a pool fence isn’t just a matter of common sense: it’s the law pretty much everywhere in the U.S., including Las Vegas and the rest of Clark County. But bear in mind that chain link is not an appropriate choice as pool fences are required to be non-climbable with latches mounted above the reach of small children. Instead, consider a locally crafted wrought iron fence from Artistic Iron Works.

Pool Fencing For Prevention & Protection

Legal requirement aside, there are some additional reasons why you need a pool safety barrier. Custom swimming pool fences can protect you, prevent accidents, and keep out unwanted guests.

Prevent Accidental Child Drownings

Between 2019 and 2020, there were 14 fatal drownings in Southern Nevada involving children from 0-14 years of age. There were many more nonfatal submersion incidents reported. This sobering statistic underlines the importance of creating barriers around backyard pools and spas to protect our smallest and most vulnerable members of society.

Protect Impaired Individuals

Drowning is not limited to children. It is not unheard-of for impaired adults to accidentally fall and drown in an unfenced or unlocked pool area. Some special needs children and adults are drawn to water regardless of the ability to swim.

Keep Pets & Critters Out

Even if they aren’t all swimmers, your family pet may end up making a mess on your deck. Although rare, we also see the occasional coyote and bobcat, especially in the outlying areas of Vegas that have only recently been developed. Fencing will keep unwelcome members of the animal kingdom, both domestic and wild, from seeking a drink or dip in your pool.

Reduce Your Liability Risk

Failing to install appropriate barriers will lead you wide open to prosecution and civil lawsuits in the event the unthinkable happens. Lack of pool fencing will also likely invalidate your homeowner’s insurance protection.

The Wrought Iron Advantage

When deciding on a pool barrier, you want to keep both legal requirements and aesthetics in mind. Artistic Iron Works can craft beautiful custom pool fencing that will protect your property while adding a touch of elegance to your backyard area.
