Economical Mesh Pool Fencing: Pool safe wire mesh can be used to safely fence off a large area around a pool, or to fix up those small non compliant areas around your existing pool fence. To comply with the AS 1926.1 and AS 1926.2, the perforated mesh needs to have openings which are no larger than 13mm square. The fence must also comply with the minimum height of 1200mm. Fix this type of mesh to your choice of either hardwood posts or pine logs, combined with a timber top rail, for a transparent, natural looking pool fence - fast! Or, use sections of mesh to protect those areas of your existing pool fence which contain 'foot-holds' - to bring your existing fence up to the required standard.
