Installation Procedures

All Guardian safety fences can be installed on your pool deck or customized for the lawn/planter areas, wood decks etc…Holes are drilled in the masonry surfaces (pool decking) with precision drills fitted with diamond-core bits to prevent chipping or cracking. The holes we drill are 4”-6” deep. Wires and piping are generally below this level. It’s a good idea to check with your pool contractor or have locates done if you’re concerned!

Hole sizes

(5/8” diameter for Guardian Premier Pool Fence)

Once the holes are drilled, Guardian’s non-conductive HDPE plastic sleeves are inserted in the deck. HDPE plastic sleeves meet applicable National electrical codes.

The fence sections are then inserted into the sleeves in the deck and are then connected to each other with stainless steel, spring-loaded hook & eye clasps to maintain fence tension. For added safety, brass padlocks keyed alike are available for each of the clasps.

Guardian’s Premier Pool safety fences are available in three heights: 4 foot, 4 1/2 foot and 5 foot. Our 4-foot and 4 ½-foot-high barriers come with 30” or 36” pole spacing. The 5-foot-high barriers only come with 30-inch pole spacing.

  • We recommend 30” spacing for curvy pools or small jobs with tight fits.
  • We recommend 36” spacing for straight pools.
  • Our fencing is the ideal choice for existing pools!
  • Please consult with bylaws in your area for new pool construction!

Guardian’s Premier fence poles are reinforced marine grade T-6 aluminum. Available pole colors are: black, brown, green or grey.
