Kids Safe has been helping families keep their swimming pool safer by installing pool fences in Westchester County, NY. Residents who own pools in this area are required to adhere to specific New York State safety barrier requirements. Residential pool owners must ensure that their pool is completely surrounded by a safety barrier fence that is a minimum height of 4 feet, the pool fencing must prevent anyone from climbing it.
The pool safety barrier must also be supported by posts or poles that have been firmly embedded into the ground at intervals of a maximum of 8 feet. The barrier should also not have any openings larger than 2 inches in diameter.
Furthermore, the pool gate of the fence must have a self-closing and self-latching device that ensures the gate or door is kept securely closed at all times. This self-latching device must be placed as high as possible on the gate to ensure it is out of the reach of small children.
As a homeowner this list of requirements may seem daunting, but this is where the years of experience by Kids Safe Pool Fence comes in!
As a homeowner, and especially as a parent, pool safety should be a top priority if you have a swimming pool in your backyard. According to reports by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, approximately one in five people who die from drownings are children under the age of 14. Furthermore, the CDC Reports that drowning kills more children ages 1-4 years than anything other cause with the exception of birth defects. This is why if you have a pool in your yard, you need a child pool safety fence. A Life Saver pool fence is the best and safest removable mesh pool fence available for homeowners to protect their family from accidental drowning.
