Pool Fence regulations on the Gold Coast have just been changed in 2016, consequently it is more crucial than ever before to make sure that your pool fence is truly not only compliant, but safe! that is why it is important to think about Gold Coast Pool Fence certifiers. We are continuously managing new tasks on the Gold Coast, and lots of people are confused when we tell them that they need to get in an independent Pool Fence certifier to make sure of the pool’s safety. But it is tremendously important, because if an installer were to simply say to you it was ‘safe’ then you might never be certain because there is always a chance that the pool fence installer doesn’t care, or is not inclined to admit any problems. So lets talk about Gold Coast Pool Fence certifiers.
Here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems, while we understand the rules and requirements of the Pool Barriers we are not actually permitted to be Pool Fence certifiers. This would be a major conflict of interest for us considering that it would not be right if we installed a fence and after that certified the pool– you need a neutral third party to guarantee that our work is compliant. That is why we have a small list of Pool Fence certifiers that we respect and suggest frequently and we have a great working relationship with them.
Pool Fence Certifiers on the Gold Coast take their job very seriously and understand the importance of safety around swimming pools. I am certain that all of us hear in the news about the tragic drowning deaths that occur every year, and that is why we all need to take these laws very seriously. These drownings in swimming pools should be experiencing a rapid decline due to the enforcement of these Swimming Pool Barrier laws. Unfortunately, due to various factors and possibly a relaxed attitude towards the dangers of drowning, the data do not really reflect this at the moment. Royal Lifesaving National Drowning Report
This is why we must be much more vigilant than ever when it comes to pool safety and children. It is essential that your Frameless glass pool fence is certified by a qualified Pool Safety Inspector that does not work for the same company that installed the pool fence.
Our 3 main Gold Coast certifiers that we use are:
Grant– ABC pool Fence Inspections
Andrew– Coastline Certification
We are not connected to these Pool Fence inspectors, therefore if we are not up to standard they have no problem with telling us! We have had to learn the rules ourselves over the many years we have been in this business and as we don’t ask for any payment until the fence is certified. So it is definitely in our best interest to ensure that it will succeed the first time.
When it comes to Gold Coast Pool Fence certifiers, don’t rely on companies that say they employ their own Pool Safety Inspector, they are not allowed to! It is an important part of the industry that these companies should not be interacting. It may just compromise your safety because your pool inspector is being paid by the contactor– and the safety and security of you and your children is a very high cost to pay. So, see to it that your pool is correct and legal the very first time by calling an experienced and ethical Glass Pool Fence installer on the Gold Coast.
