Pool Fence polices on the Gold Coast have just a while ago been modified in 2016, and so it is more vital than ever to make sure that your pool fence is without a doubt not only compliant, but in fact safe! We are always managing new projects on the Gold Coast, and lots of people are baffled when we tell them that they will need to get in an independent Pool Fence certifier to make sure of the pool’s safety. But it is really important, because if an installer were to simply reveal to you it was ‘safe’ then you might never be confident because there is always a chance that the pool fence installer doesn’t care, or is not prepared to admit any miscalculations.
Here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems, while we understand the rules and requirements of the Pool Barriers we are not actually permitted to be Pool Fence certifiers. This would be a considerable conflict of interest for us given that it wouldn’t be right if we installed a fence then afterwards certified the pool– you need to find an unbiased third party to guarantee that our work is correct. That is why we have a modest list of Pool Fence certifiers that we respect and suggest on a regular basis and we have a great working relationship with them.
Pool Fence Certifiers on the Gold Coast take their job incredibly seriously and understand the importance of safety around swimming pools. I am sure 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 perhaps even a relaxed attitude towards the dangers of drowning, the studies do not really reflect this at the moment Royal Lifesaving National Drowning Report, 2016
This is why we must be much 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 work for the same company that installed the pool fence.
Our 3 main Gold Coast certifiers that we use are:
Grant– ABC pool Fence Inspections
Frank– Delf Industry Building certification
Andrew– Coastline Certification
We are not connected to these Pool Fence inspectors, consequently 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.
Don’t believe in companies that say they employ their own Pool Safety Inspector, they are not allowed to! It is a vital part of the industry that these businesses should not be working together. It may just compromise your safety because your pool inspector is being paid by the contractor– and the safety of you and your children is a very high price tag to pay. So, make sure that your pool is correct and legal the first time by calling a qualified and ethical Glass Pool Fence installer on the Gold Coast.
