Pool Fence Construction

Mesh
Polyester mesh fabric with a mildew resistant polyvinyl coating to provide for years of use in direct sunlight.
Continuous basket weave with a tensile strength rating of 270 lbs. per inch making it impossible to rip under normal use. Color selection is black, green or white. Bordered on all four sides by a reinforced vinyl material with a rating of 387 lbs. to prevent sagging and provide the necessary tension to insure the fence's integrity for its intended purpose both at the top and bottom. All border is quadruple stitched with Aqualon marine thread to allow for years of abuse from direct sunlight and the elements.

The finished mesh is securely mounted on reinforced aluminum poles and reinforced with aluminum cove molding strips attached to each pole.

Support Poles
Poles are constructed of aluminum and are available in black, white beige or green powder coated finish or silver mill (aluminum) finish.
QUAD-X core aluminum poles are available in our premium line of fencing. Pole spacing is optional at either 30 or 36 inches. QUAD-X core aluminum poles are stronger than standard fiber reinforced aluminum poles and should always be considered over standard aluminum where pole breakage or abuse is highly likely.
Stainless steel screws (14) are utilized for securely attaching the aluminum cove molding to the poles and mesh. Surface of the poles are finished for handling and to prevent injuries from physical contact.
The poles are capped to provide a neat finished appearance. Standard sections supplied are 15 feet to provide for easy removal and storage by the homeowner. A standard section weighs only 15 lbs. Short sections are available down to 5 feet in length for 30" pole spacing models and 6 feet for the 36" spacing models.

Gate Options
The most recent upgrade to the Life Saver Pool Fence, the Snap Latch, is a break-through in high quality pool fencing. This new latch is nickel-plated with a stainless steel spring, guaranteeing that it will never rust, corrode, tarnish, or deteriorate in any fashion. As with all parts of the Life Saver Pool Fence, the Snap Latch is covered by our Lifetime Warranty. The Snap Latch is the first pool fence latch that can be used by both right and left-handed parents. It's the safest latching system anywhere.

To open the fence, first squeeze the poles together using one hand and open the latch with the other. Then, put one arm over the fence facing the gate opening and place your thumb and forefinger on the top of the pole. Push towards the gate opening in line with the fence and the pole will turn in your hand once it is centered in the sleeve. Push again on the top of the pole and lift out as the pole centers in the sleeve. This can all be done in one step and is much easier than it sounds.

You can then open the fence like a door, putting the pole into the convenient lay-back hole.

Self-Closing Gate
Life SaverÝs self-closing, self-latching gate utilizes a square frame that can support itself with or without the pool fence. It is totally removable or it can be permanently anchored. The gate is constructed of 1 1/4" aluminum square stock with a strong 1/8" wall. The welded finished product is powder coated in black, white, green, or tan with your choice of black, white, or green Textilene˘ mesh ˝ the strongest available. Mix and match color combinations on the frame, mesh, and border to suit your personal taste while still maintaining the highest level of safety.

The Life Saver Self-Closing gate uses only the most proven latch and hinge system. The Magna-Latch has been tested to more than 400,000 cycles. MAGNA-LATCH gate latches are magnetically triggered safety devices that have revolutionized the safety, reliability and child-resistance of swimming pool, childcare and household gates.

The unique operating principle is brilliantly simple. As the gate swings shut, a powerful 'permanent' magnet draws a latch bolt from one housing into the other, latching it securely. No amount of shaking, pushing or pulling can disengage the latch. The concept is so advanced it boasts international awards for design excellence.

The latch has been designed to meet strict international safety codes, including all codes relating to swimming pool gate safety. The dangerous problem of a gate "resting on the latching mechanism", appearing to be latched, is eliminated when using MAGNA-LATCH. The quiet and reliable latching action means MAGNA-LATCH incurs no mechanical resistance to closure, and so suffers none of the sticking, jamming and sagging problems associated with 'mechanical' gate latches

Quality TRU-CLOSE gate hinges are the latest technology in adjustable, self-closing gate hinges for swimming pools, households and other safety gate applications.

These strong, revolutionary hinges are injection-molded from a special blend of glass-fiber reinforced polymers, which means they never rust, bind, wear, sag or stain.
The superior strength and rust-free performance of TRU-CLOSE means the hinges offer double the life expectancy of any comparable product.
The internal torsion spring is made of high-grade stainless steel to ensure smooth, powerful closure and long life, even in the harshest seaside or arid environments.
The patented, spring-loaded adjustor within most TRU-CLOSE hinges allows instant, incremental tension adjustment using only a screwdriver. Quick and easy! This clever adjustment feature overcomes the typical spring fatigue problems associated with fixed-tension gate hinges.
TRU-CLOSE hinges have been independently tested to comply with a range of international safety standards, especially those relating to pool fences and gates.
The hinges are designed to outperform all comparable gate closing devices. They are the only safety hinges offering a lifetime warranty against rust or corrosion.
