Pool Fences can be constructed from wood, decorative metal, chain link, and a myriad of other fence construction materials. The codes that apply to pool fencing vary due to different required heights and materials depending on where in the area you reside. For example: The spaces between vertical members must be less than 4" on fences 5' or taller. The allowable spacing for a 4' tall fence is only 1-3/4" wide. Horizontal members must be 45" apart so as to not provide a foothold for children to climb over. Chain link fences for pool applications use a smaller mesh size which is 1-1/4".
