This means that all pool fence specifications are checked every 12 to 18 months to ensure they comply with the relevant State and Territory laws.

What is the Best Balustrade or Pool Fence to Use for Coastal Living?

Erosion and storms are two common problems we face living near the coast, along with sea salt corrosion.

Brilliant. Well done Jennette! We are so proud and happy to have Jennette behind the manufacture of all our products. She cannot help but produce the best.

Sentrel Pool Fence - the only compliant cable fence

We have recently had our Pool Fencing tested again to ensure that it complies with the most recent Australian Standards - AS 1926.1 - 2012. This is a very stringent testing procedure - specifically the 'cone test'. We passed with plenty of room to spare, and we can now confidently say that our Pool Fencing is the only cable fencing system that complies to NATA and Australian Standards. If you want safety, compliance and the best look on the market, the answer is simple!
