Pool Fencing Perth
With our warm and sunny climate, there’s nothing quite as welcome to Perth residents as a swimming pool in their backyard.
The installation of a pool can offer your loved ones and you a place to relax, cool down, and create memories that will last a life time.
Before you start planning that first jump into the clear blue waters of your dream pool, you’ll need to have pool fencing installed!
Having pool fencing isn’t just a great idea for your pool area, it is also legal requirement here in Western Australia and all other Australian states. For some, this may seem like an added and unattractive cost on path to building your swimming pool, but it is in fact a very important safety measure that reduces injuries.
When installed to state regulations, your swimming pool fencing not only provides a safe barrier but can also be an attractive feature that adds character and style to your pool area!
And that is exactly what the team at Platinum Barriers can do for you. With your goals and vision, our team will design a fence for your pool that will add character and style to your outdoor space, while also following the strict Australian standard safety requirements.

WA Pool Fencing regulations at a glance
At Platinum Barriers, we want you to be equipped with all of the information you’ll need to prep for the installation of your swimming pool and fencing.
We have compiled some of the key points from the West Australian building commissions rules for pools and spas, so that you can move forward with your pool project confidently. The entire document is available for you to review here.
Why you need a fence around your pool:
- Between 2003 and 2013, 40 children under the age of five drowned in domestic swimming pools
- For every drowning death in a domestic pool, 10 children are admitted to hospital for drowning related incidences, some left with long term impairment.
In an effort to combat unnecessary deaths and injury, the WA state government enacted legislation that requires any private or domestic pool to have a safety fence installed around it.
What is required of homeowners?
All homeowners must have a compliant barrier installed around their pool that will restrict access to the area by young children. If pool owners do not meet this requirement, they can face a heavy fine and put their family and friends at risk. The be compliant your pool fencing must have the following:
- A child proof, self-locking gate
- Be constructed out of any material, so long as it is durable and designed as a permanent structure.
- Be 1200mm from the top of the pool fencing to the ground. Any openings in the fence can not be wider than 100mm around the entire perimeter.
- There can be no climbable objects within a 1200 mm span on the outside of the pool area, and not within 300mm inside the swimming pool.
- All gates must be self-locking, with the latch release located at least 1500mm above the ground level of the barrier.
