Watch Everton featured on Better Homes and Gardens
A combination of safety and style
At Everton, we aim to provide pool fences that strike a balance between aesthetics and access. Ensuring that your pool fence looks great is important, but safe access to the area is paramount.
In this segment by Better Homes and Gardens, Everton was the featured product that provides this combination – our fully frameless mini post system in stainless steel.
It is a popular choice due to its simple design and ease in which it fits into a variety of outdoor spaces. Its seamless finish means that it blends in regardless of your backyard décor or pool design.
The mini post fencing system is also available in aluminium, and has surface mount, core-drilled and deck mount options.
The episode focused on replacing an old pool fence with a new glass pool fence system.
Despite being structurally sound, the previous pool fence was being replaced due to its dated style and presence. The use of the wire fencing kept the pool area enclosed physically and visually — separating it from the garden area.
The project showcased the backyard before and after, and provided handy tips on getting the most out of your pool fence.
While pool fences can be stylish, they are first and foremost, an important safety feature in your backyard. There are several ways that this episode emphasises different safety precautions you can take when installing your own pool fence.
This is showcased when the old fence was kept up as the new fence was installed around it, as it is important that there is a fence surrounding the pool at all times. This is to ensure that if you need to take a break from installation, there is always a fence to protect others from accessing the pool area when unattended.
It is also outlined during the episode that the minimum height required for a pool fence is 1200mm. It’s important to note that pool fencing regulations vary depending on where you live — so ensure that when you are installing your pool fence, you consider the local laws and safety recommendations.
Another point to consider is that a pool gate should be self-closing. This is to ensure that anyone entering or leaving the pool area does not expose a gap in the fencing, as the door will close automatically.
- The plants you choose should be able to handle direct heat and sunlight. The reflection of the pool also causes additional light and glare – so plants with drought resistant properties work best.
- Select tough, hardy plants as they need to be able to weather the occasional rough and tumble from pool toys or pets.
- Make sure that the plants you select are low to the ground, so you will be able to see through your pool fence and into the backyard.
