We were back in Clinton, NY to install our popular Regis aluminum pool fence. Our customer had installed a in-ground pool and needed it secured. Although each municipality is different, New York has some fairly standard fencing laws.
Current Requirements for Swimming Pools
- The fence must completely surround the swimming pool and must obstruct access to the swimming pool.
- The fence must be at least 4 feet (48 inches) high.
- The space between the bottom of the barrier and the ground cannot exceed 2 inches.
After looking at all the fencing options, our aluminum fencing with a powder coated finish, was once again the best for this Clinton project. Powder coating is a dry powder which is applied as free-flowing liquid to the surface. Powder coating doesn’t require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in liquid suspension form. It’s applied and cured under heat to form a hard finish that’s much stronger than paint. There is no visual difference plus the powder coating won’t drip or warp and is less likely to crack, peel, chip, and fade. As we’ve stated before, the beauty of this fencing is that it’s basically maintenance-free! For a person with a fence in the changing seasons of Clinton, this type of fencing just made the most sense for the long term look.
