Get Your Pool Fence and Fence Gate Ready for Backyard Summer Fun

When the sun is blazing and summer’s in full swing, there’s nothing like a backyard pool for beating the heat. Of course, being the proud owner of a swimming pool isn’t all fun and games… it’s also a big responsibility.

Pools are great, but they can be dangerous if proper precautions aren’t taken. Swimming pools are a drowning hazard for unsupervised children and pets. There’s also the threat of trespassers who can expose pool owners to staggering amounts of liability.

Of course, we can’t sit by the pool all day, as nice as that might sound. We have work to do! Many pool owners are finding that aluminum pool fencing is the best solution for backyard pool safety and security.

Make Sure Your Fence Is Up to CodeSet Up Your Pool Fence for Backyard Summer Fun by Discount Aluminum Fences

The Building Officials and Code Administrators (BOCA) have outlined stringent requirements for safe pool fencing. Among them: the fence must be at least 4’ tall, the pickets must be spaced less than 4” apart, the latching mechanism must be at least 54” above the ground, and the space between the bottom rail and the ground must be less than 4”.

These rules and others outlined by BOCA may seem strict, but they’re in place to keep everyone safe. Pool fencing regulations in your area may vary from BOCA requirements, but if you opt for a fence that meets these guidelines, chances are strong that it will meet or exceed any local requirements.

Secure Your Gate

When it comes to pool fencing, the gate is the most likely entry point for adventurous children, curious pets, and trespassers. So it’s crucial to make sure your pool gate is secure.

Discount Aluminum Fences offers plenty of options to keep your aluminum pool fence’s gate from being the weakest link. TruClose hinges close gates automatically, so there’s no risk of them being absent-mindedly left open.

MagnaLatch locks have a unique magnetic latching system that is immune to mechanical jamming, so you don’t have to worry about your gate sticking open like it might with a standard gravity latch.

Aluminum gates with closely spaced puppy pickets keep pets and small children from accessing the pool area by squeezing themselves between gate pickets.

Protect Your Pet with These Puppy Fences and Fence Accessories

We all love our pets. They enrich our lives with their playful antics, they’re always willing to serve as cuddle buddies, and they’re great listeners. Some of us even consider them to be members of our families.

We do our best to keep them from getting into trouble, just like we would with any close friend. Unfortunately, they’re not always so keen on staying safe. After all, there’s a big, wide world out there – with critters to chase, territory to mark, and new friends to make.

If your pet has a hankering for adventure, you’ll need to take extra measures to keep them from making a break for it. Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to protect our pets from letting wanderlust get the best of them.

Keep Your Puppy Safe with These Puppy Fences and Fence Accessories

Puppy Picket Aluminum Fencing

Aluminum fencing adds style and security to your home, but it’s also a great way to keep your pets safe and secure. Fences with lots of space between the pickets offer ample opportunity for escape, because dogs and cats are capable of wriggling through some truly astounding obstacles.

Puppy pickets create a barrier that will have even the most gifted four-legged escape artists throwing up their paws in resignation. These pickets are narrowly spaced to keep your pets from going on the lam, and to prevent other animals from trespassing where they’re not welcome.

Our Appalachian Puppy Picket aluminum fence is one of our most popular options, and it’s easy to see why: it pairs a classic, elegant design with closely spaced lower pickets. The result is a fence that lends an air of dignity and grandeur to any home, and keeps pets safe at the same time.

Pet-Safe Gates

Of all the possible escape points for a furry Houdini, the gate is certainly one of the most likely. Gates that are inadvertently left open look like a golden opportunity for adventure to a curious pet. So it’s important to keep gates pet-safe.

The same Magna Latch gate latches that are ideal for keeping small children out of pool areas are also ideal for preventing pets from escaping. They latch automatically, and never get stuck open due to mechanical jamming.

The Tru Close hinge is another ideal aluminum fence accessory for homes with pets. They close automatically, so there’s no need to worry about leaving the gate open when your hands are full.

Discount Aluminum Fences also offers gates with puppy pickets, which will make your gate just as secure as the rest of your fence, and match your aluminum fencing perfectly.

Spice Up Your Aluminum Fence for Cinco de Mayo and More Holidays

It’s that time of year again, when Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence DaySpice Up Your Aluminum Fence for Cinco de Mayo from Discount Aluminum Fences. Instead, the holiday got its start as a celebration of Mexico’s victory at the Battle of Puebla. The French had the Mexican army outnumbered and outgunned, but the Mexicans snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, sending the French army packing, and giving the Mexican resistance movement a much-needed morale boost.

Mexican-Americans imported the Cinco de Mayo celebration into the States during the Civil War, and it has since grown into a national celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. Of course, you don’t have to hail from south of the border to get in on the good times; we all love reasons to have fun with our friends, families, and neighbors.

When you think of Cinco de Mayo, you probably think of delicious Mexican food, cold drinks, and dancing to Mariachi and Son music, but no Cinco de Mayo celebration would be complete without decorations. The vibrantly colored decorations are a big part of what makes this holiday special.

And what better canvas for festive Cinco de Mayo finery than the aluminum fence that surrounds your yard or pool? Let’s take a look at some fun ways to spice up the fence for your Cinco de Mayo party.

Streamers!

Stop by your local party supply store and pick up some crepe streamers in red, green, white, magenta, bright orange, neon lime, and any other colors that strike your fancy. Weave them between your aluminum fence pickets in layers, or just spice it up with a few streamers here and there. Check the forecast, though. Crepe streamers don’t like rain.

Sombreros!

Your aluminum fence is designed to stand up to the harshest conditions without issue, but it probably wouldn’t mind wearing a sombrero. Put sombreros on some of your fence’s ball caps and finials for a look that’s fun and festive.

Flowers!

Flowers are just the things to get your fence into the Cinco de Mayo spirit. You can use silk flowers from the store, or make your own out of paper or cloth. And be sure to get the kids involved, because they’ll have a blast. If you opt for real cut flowers from the garden or store, fasten the flowers to the fence using two-sided tape for easy removal when they’ve lost their luster. 

Fence Accessories

If you’ve been thinking about dressing up your aluminum fence with new finials, rings, scrolls, or caps, then why not use your Cinco de Mayo party as an excuse to do just that?

Discount Aluminum Fences has everything you need to give your aluminum fence plenty of extra style. From Imperial and Monarch finials to decorative post caps, and even regal estate gates complete with lions, we have all the aluminum fence accessories you’re looking for.

Compare and Contrast: Aluminum Fences vs. Chain Link Fences

Comparing and Contrasting Aluminum Fences with Chain Link Fences from Discount Aluminum FencesIf you’re considering putting up a new fence, you have plenty of options for fencing materials. Two of the most popular choices are chain link and aluminum. So how do they compare?

Fence Appearance

When it comes to appearance, aluminum fencing is the clear winner. It’s available in many styles and colors, and there are plenty of attractive accessories available to those who are interested in giving their aluminum fences an extra element of class.

Chain link fences don’t have nearly the visual appeal that aluminum fences do. At best, they look relatively secure and utilitarian. At worst, they can be absolute eyesores, ruining perfectly picturesque views and detracting from property values.

Security

Aluminum fences are generally more effective at keeping out intruders. Typical chain link fences are quite easy to climb over, whereas aluminum fences offer fewer footholds and handholds.

True, would-be intruders can be prevented from vaulting chin link fences with the addition of razor wire, but who wants their home to look like a prison yard? With the addition of attractive (and pointy) finials, aluminum fence owners can certainly make prospective trespassers think twice about jumping over the barrier and into their yard.

Maintenance

Chain link fencing generally starts to rust within ten years, and sometimes sooner when they are exposed to salty air. Aluminum fencing has no such issue. Powder-coated aluminum is resilient to changing weather conditions, and stays beautiful for years and years with little to no maintenance.

Privacy

Neither aluminum nor chain link are typically the first option for privacy fencing, but privacy is often an important consideration when choosing a fence.

Privacy slats can be added to chain link fences in order to keep prying eyes out, but they’re not fully opaque. Aluminum fences with extra pickets are available, and they’re about as effective as chain link privacy fences.

For privacy, chain link and aluminum fences are about equal.

Cost

One reason that chain link fencing is often chosen has to do with its affordability. It’s true that aluminum fencing tends to be more expensive on average when compared with chain link.  But as is the case with so many things in life, you get what you pay for when it comes to fencing. If you choose to put up your aluminum fencing yourself, you can save a substantial amount of money.

Capping off your fence’s posts with ball caps not only looks great, but also protects your fence’s longevity by preventing debris from collecting inside your fence posts. Our ball caps can be powder-coated to match your aluminum fence perfectly.

Add some style to your next spring BBQ by interlacing your pickets with cheery crepe paper. Even festoon your fence in festive finery with floral garlands and ribbons. You can turn your fence into a habitat for neighborhood wildlife by mounting birdhouses, hummingbird feeders, or squirrel feeders to it.

Common Fence Installation Issues to Avoid

When a homeowner needs a fence, many tend to believe they can go about installing the structure themselves. If you can't afford help to do the handy work, this may be the only choice you have.

Nobody wants to reinstall a fence after all that hard work has been done to install it.

Not many homeowners can figure out the exact dimensions of their property line without official documentation and approval from neighbors.

To avoid this issue, getting an opinion from the homeowner’s association or hiring a professional survey company will certainly help. Then whether you decide to do fence installation yourself or hire outside help, you will have specific instructions to follow and allow for the most efficient installation possible.

Next, place the chicken wire in the trench and attach it to the bottom of the fence with the zip tie, and continue this process around the fence perimeter or wherever may be necessary.

For those who own pets that like to wander, a picket pet fence will squander the potential for escape. Build the best enclosure possible with these tips to keep your pet safe.
