As one of the main focal points on your property, a pool fence is not only a finishing touch for your backyard retreat, but an essential safety feature. A pool fence can be the only thing standing between your little ones, and disaster. For this reason, your municipality regulates pool fences. A majority of them follow Michigan Building Code, however you must check with your local municipality for specific pool fence information.
For Example, Most Municipality’s Require That:
- Gates must open outward away from the pool.
- All gates must have self-closing hinges with a self-closing latch, so the gate cannot be left open.
- The handle to unlatch the gate must be 54” high to prevent children from opening it.
There are only certain styles of fence that meet pool code. We suggest you confirm your choice with a professional.
