HOW DOES IT WORK?
BABYSAFE is a modular fence that is installed under tension in order to prevent children from gaining access to the swimming pool area. Children can’t either climb, pass through or under it and they can’t open its latches and gates for it takes both hands of an adult to operate them.
HOW SAFETY IT IS?
BABYSAFE is the safest fence for swimming pools, for it is designed specifically for this application and it addresses not only safety but also convenience and good looks. We have almost 20 years in the industry and we install thousands of fences every year in Europe and South America.
CAN SMALL CHILDREN CLIMB IT OR PASS UNDER IT?
Since it does not have a hard bar at the top, it is actually much more difficult to climb than a hard structure. The mesh is also so closely kneat that it doesn’t provide a hand or foot hold. Since it doesn’t streech either, it cannot be lifted to gain access from UNDER the fence.
ARE PETS PROTECTED TOO?
We can’t warranty that no pet would come across or jump the fences, but many customers fence their swimming pools to prevent their pets from falling into it, since dogs and cats can’t get off a pool equiped with ladders or when they are puppies or too old.
CAN CHILDREN OPEN THE FENCE, REMOVE IT OR LIFT A POST?
Our exclusive latches and profesional installation warranties that the fence will be tight enough so it cannot be taken out until the safety latches, which children cannot operate, have been opened by an adult.
WILL THEY GET HURT IF THEY IMPACT THE FENCE?
The fence is flexible and has no sharp or pointy elements so, contrary to all the alternative fencing products, it gently “gives” if children accidentaly runs into it.
ARE BABY SAFE’S FENCES STURDY ENOUGH?
Our fences have been tested for compliance with the spanish building code and they also surpass the requirements of both France and Florida (USA) building codes. Our patented structural posts are designed so they absorb the energy of an impact instead of breaking.
IS IT EASY TO OPEN?
Since our beginnings we have been constantly improving our latches. We now have two latches for two different situations. Our regular BabyClic® latch is used at most section ends and for the section that is opened more frequently, we have recently introduced our TensionLatch®, which divides in two operations the fence latching and the fence tensioning, allowing for much tighter installations. This feature results in added security and beauty for the fence.
DO I NEED THE OPTIONAL SAFETY GATE?
In the case of public access pools or residential pools which are used by both toddlers and teenagers we recommend installing a self closing and latching gate, so the safety of the fence does not depend on people remembering to close the fence EVERY TIME they get into or out of the pool. This gate will always close and latch on its own.
CAN THEY BE MOVED, REINSTALLED AND REPAIRED?
BABYSAFE fences can be reinstalled in the cases that the owner wants to change the fence layout, floor or even moves to a new home. Since we manufacture our fence, we are never be out of stock and we can respond should you need us several years after the fence was installed.
WHICH HEIGHTS ARE AVAILABLE?
Standard height in residential swimming pools is 1 meter, which in most cases is enough and much more aesthetically pleasing than 1.2 meters, which is the height that the Spanish Building Code requires for public use pools. Should different heights or inclines be necessary, we can always make custom sections to accomodate to any circumstance.
DO THEY REQUIRE ANY MAINTENANCE?
BABYSAFE fences are made of materials that can withstand outdoor exposure for many years. OUR TEXTILENE® mesh is coated whit Ultra Violet light resistant PVC and the posts are made of marine grade aluminum and are either silver anodized or painted with poliester resins. The latches and screws are made of stainless steel and all plastic accessories are UV protected as well. The edge of the fence is WELDED, not SEWN as in the rest of the industry, so is has NO SEWN THREADS that will decay and rot from exposure to the sun and chlorine.
CAN THEY BE INSTALLED ON THE GRASS OR SOIL?
Installing the fence on grass or soil is more difficult and the fence may, in some circumstances, loose tension after a while. USUALLY IT CAN BE DONE, but it must first be evaluated by our technicians to asess its feasibility.
CAN ANYBODY INSTALL A BABYSAFE FENCE?
A profesional installation is essential to ensure that your fence is safe, the tension correct, the layout convenient and the aspect pleasing. It is highly critical for this product an installation by trained personnel. A handyman may honestly think that he or she can manage to install a fence, but it requires both training and special tools to do it properly. Installing a removable fence requires drilling multiple holes in your pool deck or patio, within precise distances and VERY precise inclinations and it is almost impossible to get it right the first time. We have been called many times to fix “domestic” installations made with the best intentions and the worst results.
