One of the most important things you can do to prevent drowning is to learn how to swim. This skill will not only help you survive if you fall into deep water, but it will also give you the confidence to venture into new and exciting waters. While swimming lessons are readily available at many community pools and recreation centers, it is also important to make sure that your kids are supervised at all times when they are near water. Even the best swimmers can get into trouble if they are not careful. As such, it is essential to have a responsible adult on hand whenever your kids are swimming or playing near water.
In addition to learning how to swim, it is also important to know how to perform CPR. This life-saving technique can be the difference between life and death in an emergency situation. While CPR classes are available through many different organizations, the best way to learn is by taking a certified course. Once you have learned how to perform CPR, it is important to keep your skills up-to-date by taking refresher courses on a regular basis. By taking these precautions, you can help ensure that your kids will be safe if they ever find themselves in a dangerous situation.
Industry Best Self Closing Pool Gate
In previous articles, we talked about the importance of having the best fence possible installed to protect your family. One item that should not be overlooked is the self-closing pool gate. In fact in Florida, it is a requirement. What makes the gate such an important feature?
When you are having a Baby Barrier fence installed, we take into consideration a number of factors. Of course, we want to make sure it meets all the legal requirements for the state of Florida. We don’t stop there. We also make sure the fence is the best for your specific pool and property. Some companies will use lesser quality materials and hardware that just meet requirements. Since 1963 we are proud to manufacture and install the best fence and self-closing pool gate in the industry.
So what makes a good self-closing pool gate?
By state regulation, the pool gate must open outward and be self-closing and latching. This makes certain that a child running or riding a bike and hitting the gate can’t ‘pop it open with a hard hit. The only way to open the gate is to pull it toward you. Of course, adults that are allowed to open the gate need to be able to unlatch it. You will find that our gates are easy to open for adults and nearly impossible for kids. Kids can’t reach over the top and unlock the gate. If you want they can be locked with a key as well.
Baby Barrier’s Self-Closing Pool Gate
A remarkable optional gate design pioneered by Baby Barrier® (as seen on Good Morning America on May 26, 2003), not only closes by itself, it latches automatically.
This revolutionary design provides superior latching capability by virtually eliminating the mechanical friction resistance which so often causes failure in other designs. It is the strongest gate in the industry, making it the most reliable for keeping kids safer.
The closing tension is adjustable and the MagnaLatch® gate latches have undergone rigorous testing through 50,000 openings and closings to help ensure reliability. The gate is also key-lockable and the entire gate could be removed whenever the fence is taken down.
The rest of the pool fence is just as amazing. We manufacture our own reinforced fence pools. All materials used are designed to resist rust, mildew, corrosion, rot, and fading. All hardware used is of the highest grade stainless steel. Even the best fence components are made to hold up against the harsh Florida weather and heat. Even the splashing of chlorine pool water does not damage our fencing. Looking good season after season.
Don’t forget our fences not only protect your pool when installed but our pool safety fence and self-closing gate can quickly be removed and stored in a very small area to allow full use of your pool. We look forward to helping you protect your family for years to come.
