WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A POOL FENCING INSPECTION REPORT?
Unfortunately, far too many pool-related injuries and deaths occur in residential properties every year. Our pool fencing inspection services are designed to allow you to rest assured knowing that your pool area is safe for all occupants and visitors to the property.
Our pool fencing inspection service can be included as an additional service to a building or property safety inspection report, or can be purchased as an independent service.
WHO NEEDS A POOL FENCING INSPECTION?
Whether you’re a landlord, tenant, private homeowner, strata company or body corporate, you want to know that the pool area on your property is safe for all occupants and visitors. This knowledge is also essential if you are buying or selling a residential property.
With new laws being introduced in NSW and QLD regarding pool fencing in the short-term future, it is important to ensure that your pool fence is safe and compliant.
WHAT’S INVOLVED IN A POOL FENCING INSPECTION?
The scope of our pool fencing inspection covers the entire pool barrier, which may consist of pool fencing, perimeter/barrier fencing, gates, adjoining buildings and associated windows and doorsets. The inspection will also include assessment of areas immediately surrounding the pool barrier.
Generally, our pool fencing inspection service involves:
- Assessing the compliance of the pool barrier with Australian Standards
- Ensuring the reliability of the design and construction of the pool fencing
- Identifying objects surrounding the pool area that may impede the reliability or function of the pool barrier
- Inspection of associated doors and windows of any building that forms part or all of the pool barrier
Additionally, we provide advice on maintenance and reparation works that may be required to improve the serviceability and effectiveness of the pool barrier, ensuring the safety of your property.
