There are many ways you can secure your pool area. You can use modular walls, glass, paling, and tubular fencing. To help you narrow down your options, take a look at our guide to tubular pool fencing. 

What is tubular pool fencing? 

Tubular fencing is both lightweight and durable. It can be made out of aluminium or galvanised steel. Its name comes from its tube-like shape. 

Tubular fences can be used around pools, front gardens, balconies, gates, and as hybrid designs (for example, a combination of tubular and modular fencing). 

Advantages of Tubular Pool Fencing 

It’s one of the most recognisable style of fences. Find out why you should choose a tubular fence with these key benefits: 

  • Tubular fences come in a range of styles and colours and can be easily modified to suit your property. 
  • This style of fence is great for pool areas and more cost effective than glass pool fencing. It is robust enough to deal with child contact and will be installed according to pool safety standards. 
  • This attractive fencing option will still allow you to view inside the pool area and keep an eye on the kids. 
  • Pet resistant - you won’t have to worry about your pets trying to enter the pool area when you’re not at home. 
  • Aluminium pool fencing is lighter than steel and easy to transport. 
  • Steel tubular fences are stronger but not as corrosion resistant as the treated aluminium. Aluminium tubular fences are well suited to coastal environments for this reason.

Hybrid fence designs are increasingly popular in Australia. You can get all the durability and security you need with the aluminium tubes while softening and blending in with the landscape with additional treated posts. 

 This fence is another great example of hybrid design.

Glass Tubular Pool Fence Wodonga

This fence is another great example of hybrid design.

This last example shows a traditional tubular style fence with no additional materials. The powder coating will help protect the fence from corrosion (this client is located in Ocean Grove). The cream colour compliments the landscaping choices and offsets the boundary fence nicely.
