Important Information About Fence Conforming to Pool Code

We have designed certain styles of our fence to be ICC code compliant, which is an industry standard that meets the safety requirements for most municipalities and HOAs.

For swimming and other child safety gates, most safety standards specify:

a)  Your fence height needs to be between 4’ and 6’ high minimum

b)  Your gate needs to open outwards away from the pool

c)  Latch releasing mechanism to be minimum 54” off the ground.

*The Plain Jane Gate and Slim Jim Gate will require a specialized latching system to meet pool code. Use MagnaLatch Top Pull Hardware (not included) and Captain Morgan Post Caps Only.

Magna Latch Top Pull Code is # ML3TPKA – MagnaLatch Series 3 Safety Gate Latch – Top Pull – Black

There are some counties that have their own pool code. It’s important that you confirm pool code requirements with the appropriate authorities in your area before you purchase.
