Protect-A-Child Pool Fence
Protect-A-Child Pool Fence Co. says it has now completed and introduced "what is the first major redesign of the removable mesh pool fence in 60 years." The new, patent-pending fence utilizes a unique "Curved I Beam" shape fence post constructed with the newest UV proof urethane composite technology. This new post shape and chemical makeup provides a radically strong fence post that is non-conductive and 150 to 400% stronger than all aluminum post options available, the company says. The design of the post eliminates the requirement of face screws and post molding strips for a clean, modern look and is the first ever, the company says, to provide a 100% hidden capture of mesh to post. The new fence is also now modular in length, allowing infinitely customizable section lengths from 3 feet to infinity. This also enables simple, inexpensive replacements of individual 3-foot panels of mesh vs 15-foot long sections should damage to a panel ever occur. | (772) 398-3400
