Gold Coast Pool Fence certifiers– tips on how to choose carefully.

Pool Fence laws on the Gold Coast have just a while ago been up-dated in 2016, and so it is more important than ever to make certain that your pool fence is truly not only certified, but in fact safe! We are continuously handling new tasks on the Gold Coast, and lots of people are baffled when we tell them that they need to get in an independent Pool Fence certifier to guarantee the pool’s safety. But it is tremendously important, because if an installer were to simply inform you it was ‘safe’ then you could never be certain because there is always a chance that the pool fence installer doesn’t care, or is not inclined to admit any faults.

Here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems, while we understand the rules and requirements of the Pool Barriers we are not permitted to be Pool Fence certifiers. This would be a serious conflict of interest for us due to the fact that it would not be right if we installed a fence and afterwards certified the pool– you require an unbiased 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 use on a regular basis and we have a great working relationship with them.

Pool Fence Certifiers on the Gold Coast take their job incredibly 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 because of the enforcement of these Swimming Pool Barrier laws. Unfortunately, as a result of to various factors and possibly a relaxed attitude towards the dangers of drowning, the studies do not really reflect this at the moment Royal Lifesaving National Drowning Report, 2016

This is why we must be a lot more vigilant than ever when it comes to pool safety and children. It is very important that your Frameless glass pool fence is certified by a qualified Pool Safety Inspector that does not actually 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

Frank– Delf Industry Building certification

Andrew–  Coastline Certification

We are not linked to these Pool Fence inspectors, accordingly if we are not actually 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 constantly in our best interest to ensure that it will succeed the first time.

Don’t count 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 services should not be interacting. It may just compromise your safety because your pool inspector is being paid by the contactor– and the safety of you and your children is a very high price to pay. So, make certain that your pool is correct and legal the first time by calling an experienced and ethical Glass Pool Fence installer on the Gold Coast.
