Every pool fence needs at least one gate. That should go without saying, of course – a fence without a gate wouldn’t make any sense at all. As you will find during the shopping process, there are a number of different types of gates you can pick from to be installed along with your fence. When installed correctly, a quality mesh pool fence gate will blend in nicely with the rest of the barrier.
Mesh Fence Gate Security
The first thing you want to look for in a gate is strength. While it would be nice to find a gate that looks great, the biggest concern is whether or not it can do the job of keeping people (kids, usually) out when they are not supposed to be near the pool. The gate needs to be self-closing and self-latching to avoid a situation where the fence is compromised because the gate has been left open. Remember, there is no point in having a fence if the gate does not latch closed or is easily opened by a child in some manner. When closed, the gate should provide just as much security as the rest of the fence.
Mesh Pool Gate
Once you are sure that all of the mesh pool fence gates you are considering will offer sufficient security, you can then move on to deciding which one is going to look best on your property. The gate is naturally going to be installed in a prominent area, as it will be the entry and exit point for the pool. Take some time to pick out the style that you believe will suit your landscape best. Rather than taking away from the look of the fence, a good mesh pool gate can actually add to the visual appeal of the project as a whole.
