Gold Coast Pool Fence certifiers – our recommendations

Pool Fence laws on the Gold Coast have just been up-dated in 2016, consequently it is more vital than ever to make sure that your pool fence is not only compliant, but in fact safe! We are frequently tackling new projects on the Gold Coast, and most people are confused when we let them know that they will need to get in a different Pool Fence certifier to make sure of the pool’s safety. But it is incredibly important, because if an installer were to simply advise you it was ‘safe’ then you might never be certain because there is always a chance that the pool fence installer doesn’t care, or is not able to admit any oversights.

Here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems, although we understand the rules and requirements of the Pool Barriers we are not permitted to be Pool Fence certifiers. This would be a considerable conflict of interest for us since it wouldn’t be appropriate if we installed a fence and then certified the pool– you need an impartial 3rd party to ensure that our work is correct. That is why we have a modest list of Pool Fence certifiers that we respect and suggest regularly and we have a great working relationship with them.

Pool Fence Certifiers on the Gold Coast take their job quite seriously and understand the importance of safety around swimming pools. I am certain that we all hear in the news about the tragic drowning deaths that occur every year, and that is why we all need to take these laws seriously. These drownings in swimming pools should be experiencing a rapid decline because of the enforcement of these Swimming Pool Barrier laws. Unfortunately, due to various factors and maybe a relaxed attitude towards the dangers of drowning, the stats do not reflect this at the moment.  Royal Lifesaving National Drowning Report, 2016

This is why we must be a lot more vigilant than ever when it comes to pool safety and children. It is essential that your Frameless glass pool fence is certified by a qualified Pool Safety Inspector that does not actually work for the same company that installed the pool fence.

We are not linked to these Pool Fence certifiers, and so if we are not up to standard they have no problem with telling us! We have had to learn the rules ourselves over the many years we have been in this business and as we don’t ask for any payment until the fence is certified. So it is constantly in our best interest to ensure that it will successfully pass the first time.

when it comes to Pool Fence certifiers, don’t count on companies that say they employ their own Pool Safety Inspector, they are not permitted to! It is a vital part of the industry that these companies should not be working together. It may just compromise your safety because your pool inspector is being paid by the contactor– and the safety and security of you and your children is a very high price tag to pay. So, make certain that your pool is correct and legal the first time by calling a professional and ethical Glass Pool Fence installer on the Gold Coast.
