Removable mesh pool fencing is the most popular safety product used for residential swimming pool safety. Mesh pool fences can be easily removed, are very versatile and very difficult to climb. There is a pool fence layout for almost every pool, spa and water feature.Removable mesh pool fences are tensioned based systems that utilize pole spacing every 30 inches – 36 inches and section lengths approx 10-15 feet. All-Safe standard fencing is set at 36 inch Pole Spacing and uses 15 foot Sections. Because we are also a manufacturer, we can offer custom pole spacing and section length to suit any request. Fence poles are made of aircraft grade aluminum and the mesh is extremely strong and virtually untearable. Most customers choose to include a self-closing, self-latching, lockable pool gate for added convenience and safety.
How safe and strong is a pool fence?
All-Safe has been installing mesh pool fences for over 20 years and has never had a reported accident. The fence tension is what prevents kids from being able to remove the mesh pool fence themselves. Pool fencing is very difficult for children to climb because there is nothing for them to put their feet on to support them over the fence. Removable mesh pool fences are also used and accepted by most foster care, child adoption, and social services for pool safety in a home where a child is being placed. They are often used to satisfy residential building code requirements for the home pool barrier (always check with your local inspector or agency before installing any barrier).
How strong is All-Safe mesh fence?
All-Safe pool fences use the absolute strongest and most tested materials and components in the industry. We offer the 2 strongest poles available when measured by break strength and mesh material that cannot be torn under normal circumstances. Mesh removable fences are not indestructible. If enough force hit a pole at the right point a pole can bend or break. However, because the force needs to be high on the pole and requires a lot of weight and velocity for this to happen, it is not children who ever bend or break poles. The mesh material can be cut with a sharp object such as a knife or scissors. Both the mesh and poles can be repaired if damaged.All references to breaking strength refer to internal testing that was done as unbiased as possible. It was done at 2.5 feet up the pole (average shoulder height of a 5 year old). The test was performed with an in-line scale using constant/slow tension until poles broke or failed.
Is a removable mesh pool fence easy to us
Yes! Mesh pool safety fences are easy to use and fully removable. Optional deck plugs are available to cover the holes that appear in the deck when the fence is removed. Your fence will roll up for easy storage.There are several factors as to how long each fence will take to remove and set back up. Average removal and/or set-up is between 5-10 minutes per 15 foot section and/or gate.(Example: If your fence is 60 feet with a gate it should take about 25 – 40 minutes to remove/set-up your fence) Because of other factors, such as terrain and layout, ask your estimator about your specific pool fence layout. Upon installation your expert installer will also demonstrate how to remove and set back up your mesh pool fence.

Why choose an All-Safe pool fence?
At All-Safe we pride ourselves on proving that not all pool fences or pool fence companies are the same…
- All-Safe fences are made in Orange, CA, USA.
- All-Safe has been manufacturing and installing fences for over 20 years.
Our installation & service practices are second to none and we are proud to have a 5 star rating on Yelp, Angie’s List, Google, and an A+ rating with the BBB.
- All-Safe installs only documented ASTM compliant fence material which means it has been independently tested for safety by an independent ASTM certified laboratory. We use only the absolute best materials, installation processes and components.
Components that only All-Safe offers:
- Corner Posts – All-Safe corner posts are specifically engineered to make a turn beyond 45 degrees. The corner post allows us to maintain tension around a corner without the pole bowing over at the top which is what a normal pole does. Other companies use a 2 pole solution or change the layout to try and reduce the bowing. This results in more poles bowing awkwardly and a fence that will tend to lack the proper tension in certain areas.
- Angled Raised Panel – When going over a planter or retainer wall, you need to prevent the climbability of a child from going on top of the wall or planter and swinging around the lower part of the fence. All-Safe is the only company that offers Angled Raised Panels and Poles that go up to 8 feet to block these areas correctly. We use our unique Angled Raised Panels to raise the fence to the proper height. These angled raised panels offer a softer, more attractive look while securing the area better than any company in the pool fence industry.
- Rectangular and Round Terminating Post – Mesh pool fences cannot simply stop anywhere; they need to attach to something strong enough that can hold the tension of the entire fence line. When a mesh pool fence stops at a block wall or a good wall of the house, a normal wall attachment will work. But when a fence stops at a glass, vinyl, wood, wrought iron fence or anywhere a wall attachment cannot be used, what do you do? All-Safe has engineered and manufactured two poles for this specific problem. Rectangular posts are used when we cannot attach the fence to a wall that ends in concrete or pavers. The round terminating post is used when the fence ends in dirt or grass without anything to attach to.
- Bottom line… at All-Safe we pride ourselves on offering real tangible differences, not “talking points”, unproven claims or gimmicks. All-Safe has professionally engineered the best components, strongest poles and the best material to make sure your fence is the safest and best looking fence in the industry. Our reputation is second to none proven by our on-line reviews, testimonials, customer and professional referrals. Also, All-Safe has manufactured and installed removable mesh fences for over 20 years and we pride ourselves on using the absolute best practices in the industry. We train our installers on the proper spacing, angles, components and layout to ensure your fence will look and function the best way it possibly can
How much does a pool fence cost?
The average cost for a pool fence is $1500 – $3000 which includes installation and materials. A common misconception is that the price is based solely on how many linear feet of fence is needed. Footage of fence is just one of many things we have to consider when pricing your pool fence. Other factors include height, number of gates, what surface the fence is being installed into (pavers, dirt, grass add cost), if the surface is sloped or flat, layout and components needed to achieve installation.
What can I expect on the day of installation?
On the day of installation, your installer will confirm your desired layout. Once you have approved the final layout the installation process will start with drilling the holes, inserting the sleeves, and customizing the fence. When the installation is complete your installer will demonstrate how to remove and replace the fence as well as how to adjust the gate. Most installations are completed within 1 day. More complicated, longer fences can take 1-2 days to install.
What are my color choices?
Every customer will have different opinions on what color will look best for their home. This is why All-Safe offers the biggest variety of colors, styles and the most customizable fences in the industry. Color choices include Black, Brown, Tan & Green. Since we are also a manufacturer, custom color combinations are available for an additional cost.
Does the pool fence include a gate?
Although it is not required, most families do opt to include a self-closing, self-latching, lockable gate with their pool fence installation. This allows you to conveniently walk in and out of a hinged gate without having to pull out poles and undo the fence line to access the pool area. The gate will self-close and latch (when properly tensioned) and also includes the ability to lock the gate latch with a key.If you choose to not have a self-closing, self-latching, lockable gate installed, an opening anywhere in the fence can be made at your request. This opening is referred to as a manual opening. Due to the natural tension of the fence, manual openings can be difficult for some customers to unlatch. To assist in opening and releasing this tension, All-Safe EZ-Close handles are a unique component that can be added on during installation or at a later date.
Are there other types of pool fencing?
Removable mesh pool fencing is the only fence that was specifically made for pool safety and is widely considered the safest pool fence option for residential pools.Some of the other fences that are used are:
- Wrought Iron – Until the last 15 years wrought iron fences were a common fence used for pool safety. Today, because of the popularity of mesh fencing wrought iron is not used nearly as often. Wrought iron is made up of iron slats every 4 inches that a child can use to brace their feet on which makes an iron fence more climbable than mesh pool fences. Iron fences are not normally removable, they need to be painted every few years and can rust over time. Because of the slats and the bulkiness of an iron fence most people agree that a mesh pool fence is a better looking fence for a back yard with a pool. The typical cost for wrought iron is two to four times the cost of mesh pool fence.
- Chain Link – Chain link is not very commonly used for pool safety. Although better than nothing chain link fencing is very climbable as the diamond shaped holes in the fence act as a ladder view for a child to get over the fence. A chain link fence is not removable and very obtrusive to view of the pool area. The typical cost of a chain link fence is one and a half to two times the cost of mesh fencing.
- Vinyl or wood fence – A vinyl or wood fence will block most or all of the view of your pool area. If the slats of the fence are spaced to provide some view of the pool it can also be climbable as children could use the slats on which to brace their. If there is no space between the boards there would be no view of the pool which is also a safety concern. The typical cost of wood and vinyl fences is one and a half to five times the price of mesh pool fencing.
- Glass fence – A glass fence can be beautiful for a pool area. However they are very expensive, not versatile, not removable and very difficult to keep clean. The typical cost of a glass fence is 5x – 25x the cost of a mesh pool fence.
Can I install the fence myself?
Installation of a mesh pool fence is not as easy as it may appear. Your installer needs to have a knowledge on drilling holes, customizing sections, knowing what components are needed and installing gates. This requires experience, training and patience to get it right. For these reasons, we highly recommend you have Pool Time install it for you.
