Pool Fences & Installations in New Castle County, Delaware

A pool fence is a physical barrier that isolates small children from the pool and prevents them from gaining access to the water when adult supervision is not available. Without a fence, a child can easily wander into the pool area and could accidentally fall into the water.

Installing a child pool safety fence is a necessary safety measure for any home with a pool, and it should be installed by a professional but not every pool fence is created equally. If you want optimal child pool safety — you’ll need a Life Saver mesh pool fence with a self-closing gate installed by Best Defense Pool Enclosures. The fence is made of durable mesh which makes it unclimbable, and the pool gate provides a barrier that cannot be opened by the most curious little hands.

    Self-Closing Pool Gates

    A pool gate is an essential safety feature for any fence that surrounds a pool area. Pool gates provide a physical barrier that helps to keep children and pets out of the pool area, while still providing easy access for adults. Pool gates are made of sturdy materials such as aluminum, and they typically have a self-closing and self-latching mechanism to ensure that they remain closed and secure at all times. Pool gates should be installed by a qualified professional, and they should be inspected to make sure that they are in good working condition. 

    There are two main types of pool gates that we carry: Arched and Square. Arched gates are designed to fit around the curves of a pool, while square gates can be installed at any opening. Both types of gates are equipped with a self-closing and self-latching mechanism to ensure that they remain closed at all times. In addition, all pool gates should be installed by a qualified professional to ensure that they are safe and compliant with local building codes.
