The Building Code of Australia 2011 introduced many new building guidelines and best practices in order to standardise the building industry and improve safety. This updated code of practice introduced new pool fencing regulations that all new pools must now conform to.
As a fully Registered Building Surveyor, Nicholson Wright offers a pool consultation service to help ensure your pool conforms with the new pool fencing regulations.
The new pool fencing regulations state that:
- All pools must have a safety barrier
- Safety barriers should be of a particular height
- Pool fencing should include self-closing and self-latching gates
- Pools should not be accessible via external doors from dwellings or other outbuildings
These new pool fencing regulations place higher emphasis on safety and maintenance of swimming pool barriers. If you require a pool consultation to make sure your pool complies with all the new pool fencing regulations, please contact Nicholson Wright today.
