A pool fence is a great alternative to installing a pool enclosure. If you prefer an open area around your pool then this is a great option. In addition to an open deck area it can also be more economical than an enclosure. There are two different choices to make when selecting a pool fence to guard your pool: mechanical or welded fence. Mechanical fence comes in the option of bronze or white. A welded fence comes with many options which include more color choices, decorative accents, and stronger connections. The reason there are more color choices is because it is powder coated after it’s welded. Powder coating comes in a large variety of colors and many different textures.
