Does your Pool Fence Comply?

Swimming Pools in Queensland must comply with the Pool Safety Barrier regulations. In Queensland, we have the some of the toughest regulations in Australia, especially when it comes to safety around swimming pools. It appears Queensland is leading the standard and other states are soon to follow the highly set standards. Below are some diagrams of the pool safety regulations, however, these are specifically for Queensland.
