Pool fences provide safety and security for your yard. Because these fences must serve a specific purpose, they often have structural and functional requirements that other types of fences do not. When designing your pool safety fence, it’s important to consider both the fence’s function and how it will look in your yard to achieve the best combination of security and aesthetics.
Check Your Local Requirements
Although most areas—and insurance companies—require that you build a safety fence around your pool, the actual requirements this fence must meet often vary by location. Because there is no federal standard for pool fences, it’s important to check your area’s local requirements before you start planning. Your neighborhood, city, or state may have certain standards in place that will affect the style, height, and accessibility features of your fence.
Follow a Few Guidelines
Even if your area doesn’t have strict rules regarding the dimensions of your fence, a few recommended guidelines can help you get started. Your fence should be at least four feet tall to prevent small children from climbing over it. Utilize a durable fencing material and design that doesn’t allow children or pets to either climb or slip between the posts. Any gates should swing outward from your yard’s pool area, close on their own, and self-latch for added security. Make sure to install any latches, locks, or handles at the top of the gate, well out of reach of smaller children.
Consider Your Options
Although you must install a fence around your pool, you have many options to ensure your fence blends in perfectly with your yard’s style and aesthetics. Some of the most popular pool fencing options include wrought iron and tempered glass fencing, which don’t restrict your view and add curb appeal to your property.

A balcony not only extends the useable space of a room, but it also provides the extra decorative touch needed to complete the look of your property. However, no balcony is complete without beautiful railing. When choosing custom railing for your balcony, be sure to consider the size and shape of the balcony itself as well as your home’s exterior décor. You should also consider the type of material and how it will complement or accent your property.
For help choosing the right balcony railing, contact the master craftsmen at Buzz Custom Fence of Fort Worth. In addition to our custom fence solutions, we also offer balconies and handrails that will complete the look of your property. Because we offer custom products, you can be sure that no other house on the block will have a balcony quite like yours.

If there is any positive or negative grade leading to your store’s entrance, you should consider installing handrails. In fact, depending on the layout of your property and where it is located, you may be required by law to provide walking-assistance measures like stairs and handrails. But before you think of handrails as just another valueless business expense, consider all of the benefits of installing a handrail at your store.
Prevent Personal Injury Claims
If a customer or passerby is injured on your property, you could be liable for damages that result from a personal injury lawsuit. One way to minimize the risks of injury is to install a handrail along all steps and stairs. Even though someone can still fall and injure themselves, a handrail can show that you took necessary precautions to prevent such an injury.
Extend Your Store’s Identity Outside
A handrail isn’t just an important safety feature—it also affords you a useable space to hang banners, advertisements, and decorations that will entice potential customers to visit your store. As long as you own the space outside of your store, you are free to decorate your handrails however you wish.
Show That You Care
Handrails offer comfort and safety for customers and employees alike. This may seem like a small gesture, but the addition of a handrail will show the people who matter most that you care about them. When you work with a custom fence builder, you don’t have to sacrifice the look or feel of your storefront to offer your employees and customers this reassurance.
Buzz Custom Fence specializes in all types of custom fences, including handrails and custom metalwork. Serving the entire DFW area, Buzz Custom Fence can provide handrails for your home or business.
