Pool Fencing and Coping
It’s essential that you have thought about pool fencing prior to the construction of your backyard pool, and in fact, your pool cannot legally be filled until the fencing complies with Australian Pool Fencing Laws which state:
- Pools and spas with a depth of 30cm of more (300mm) must be surrounded by a safety barrier
- Pools built after 2010 require a four sided barrier with no direct access from a house or other building to the pool
- Pool fences must be a minimum of 1.2 metres high
The good news, however, we can fence your new pool or spa for you.
Glass Pool Fencing
Is the most popular choice and is available in semi-framed and frameless options to assist you in achieving the look you desire. Toughened safety glass is used in all our glass pool fencing constructions to ensure it lasts the test of time.
Aluminium Pool Fencing
There is a number of advantages of using an aluminium pool fence around water. Notably, it doesn’t rot and won’t rust. Once the aluminium pool fencing has been powder coated the metal is able to resist corrosion when compared to many other materials.
Steel Pool Fencing

When install a swimming pool in your backyard, there is much more to it than just putting it in the ground and filling it with water and chlorine. You need to finish it both practically and aesthetically and one way of doing this is by using pool coping.
Coping is the cap or edge that is place around the top rim of a swimming pool. You might have also heard is referred to as pool edging or pool edge pavers. It separates the swimming pool from the adjacent surface area and helps with protecting the pool structure.
Visually, pool coping defines the edge of your pool, and can be a standalone feature similar to garden bed edging, or integrated into the paving or decking around the pool.

- Square Edged – is the most popular coping choice offering a contemporary look and look.
- Drop Down Facing – offers a seamless finish, essentially hiding the rim and offering the appearance that the water and rim are flush.

- Bullnose – provides a more traditional finish compared to other coping types.
