Following a recommendation, a new customer contacted us for installation of a tubular pool fence. When I went out to Mount Dandenong to measure and quote, I realized that a tubular pool fence may not be the best solution. During the measure, I discussed the idea of an aviary wire pool fence as an alternative.
In The Dandenongs
With a beautifully treed property in the the Dandenongs, the owner was keen to put in a fence which was in keeping with the surroundings. Tubular fencing works well, but aviary wire fencing can be made pool legal. The advantage is that it tends to disappear at a distance. The owner was not aware of aviary wire pool fencing as an option, but once I showed him a photo, he was convinced.
I quoted the job and the cost for pool-legal aviary/bird wire fencing came in cheaper than tubular in this case. The owner decided to go ahead with our quote. Aviary wire fencing is great on slopes because it is easy to cut it to size where as tubular can be more challenging (see article – Pool Fencing for Sloped Blocks). The wire fencing comes in different colours so it is possible to match it for the job.
Aviary Wire Pool Fence Installation:
The Dandenong ranges can be quite wet, and this delayed the installation a little, but eventually the team got a run of good days and the owner was very happy with the result.
As well as being great for sloping properties, aviary wire pool fencing has some advantages including the reduced need for painting, reduced installation cost on sloping blocks and a good solution where the owner wants to include a larger area like a garden zone within the pool area.
