Pool Fences in Richmond VA

Swimming pools are a wonderful addition to any property, but they come with the need for additional safety and security, especially if you have children or pets around. An aluminum pool fence installed by Fence Scapes can provide that safety without sacrificing the beauty of your residential or commercial property.

Our fence installation experts work with you to ensure aluminum fences and gates installed at your home meet the safety standards for The Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA).

Pool Code Aluminum Fence Criteria

In order to meet pool code, fences must meet the following criteria:

  • Fence must be at least 48″ (4 ft.) tall
  • The mid-rail must be at least 45″ above the bottom rail
  • The spacing between pickets must be less than 4″
  • The space between the bottom rail and the ground must be less than 4″
  • Gates must be self-closing, self-latching and open outward (away from the pool area)
  • The opening mechanism of the latch must be at least 54″ above ground
  • Fences can not exceed 2 inches from top of grade of ground

For the following fences, “Flush” refers to the bottom rail enclosing the bottom of the pickets, so no pickets are exposed. “Modified” refers to when the bottom rail has been moved down to meet code, leaving the bottom of the pickets exposed.

Always check local code before ordering and installing pool fencing. Code compliance is the sole responsibility of the contractor.
