The National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA), in a statement on its website, “stresses that no single device or solution can prevent child drownings.” It recommends “layers of protection” to prevent unauthorized access, especially for children. These layers include adult supervision, pool fences, covers, alarms and more. Isolation fencing, in addition to perimeter fencing, is recommended. Isolation fencing completely separates the pool (or spa) from the house. It can be made from wood, aluminum, vinyl, Plexiglas, chain-link, or wrought iron, but needs to conform to some key specifications to be most effective: NDPA recommends 60” (CPSC Guidelines recommend a minimum of 48 inches.) height with vertical bars set no more than 4 inches apart to keep a small child from squeezing through.
Horizontal bars must be far enough apart that they cannot act as a “ladder” to climb over. The horizontal bar closest to the ground should also not allow enough room for a child to crawl under the fence. Gates to pool or spa areas should be self-closing and self-latching and accommodate a locking device. Gates should open away from the pool.
