POOL SAFETY NETS
IMPORTANT INFORMATION : A POOL SAFETY NET PREVENTS DROWNING PROVIDED IT IS PROPERLY FITTED, MAINTAINED AND REPLACED AFTER POOL USE, THE NET SAVES LIVES NOT MONEY.
The safety net has been around for decades and has prevented thousands of children from drowning! The concept has stayed the same over the years, but the fixtures and fittings have improved to make it user friendly. Our nets are custom fitted on site to fit any shape or size pool and acts like a horizontal fence over your pool. In the event of a baby crawling towards the pool, the arm or leg will fall through the openings of the net and the child will be supported at the edge of the pool and will be unable to crawl to the center of the net and the child will start crying, alerting an adult.
As a child grows and becomes heavier the child may come into contact with the water, but is capable of lifting / turning away from the water. The net is designed to prevent a child from sinking under the water surface. Only adults are able to release this tension on the net! On swimming pools with a width of 3.00m or wider a central float is added to the central tensioning system as additional safety precaution, this ensures that the net remains above the water and especially when the swimming pool water level is raised due to rain.
Our nets have been rigorously tested to meet the highest quality and safety standards. The nets are made from a from super strong high density polyethylene braid and has a breaking strain of approximately 150kg. Each net is pre-shrunken so it will not stretch or shrink + the knots are heat-sealed to prevent them from slipping. The net is aesthetically pleasing because it does not cover or distract the beauty of a sparkling clean pool. The anchor plates are almost flush and has no sharp points protruding so you will never stump your toes on it and it won’t clog up with dirt either. Durable non-corrosive hooks are attached to the net which allows the pool user to slot them into the keyholes of the plates before tightening the tension cord. Our plates have a double key hole to make adjustments accordingly, taking out the hassle of fitting the safety net. The extra key hole can also be used for securing down a leaf cover on top of the safety net for those troublemaking leaves.
Our nets have a built in pulley system acting as the shoe lases of the safety net. This central system ensures even tension all around the perimeter and can also be adjusted. Once the tension system is released the safety net is more user friendly. A watertight central float is included as a safety precaution; it acts as a buoy and supports the center of the net. This keeps the net well above the water surface and is especially important for when the pool is filling up with rain water.
Our pool nets are UV, climate and chemical resistant, and is constructed with 10 cm mesh squares complying with Safety standards (too small for a child or even a small dog to fall through). The net itself comprises of 3.5mm durable High Density Polyethylene strands which are pre-shrunk and autoclaved. We attach the swimming pool net to the coping or decking by means of stainless steel hooks clipping into plates. These plates are attached to the coping by means of stainless steel screws. The net is further strengthened by binding the outer edge and heat sealing of all the loose ends to prevent slippage and fraying. A completed net will be tight for maximum child safety and aesthetically pleasing due to the custom fitment. Children will be unable to neither lift the net at any point nor climb underneath it. Automatic pool cleaners work perfectly underneath the safety net. All nets and workmanship come with a standard 3 year guarantee! We also provide a safety net repair service, and we also are able to refit safety nets that have been removed from the pool for prolonged periods.
Exposure to the sun and extreme temperature (such as a hot paving surround) while off the pool may result in shrinkage of the netting. Always store away from direct sunlight, animals and heat when not fitted to the pool.
Animals may chew the net to drink or access the water. A safety net is not suitable for animal safety due to possible entanglement. The Pool Net has a central float, which supports the center of the net and keeps the net at a constant height above the water the swimming pool water should always be maintained at a distance below the net of 10cm 15cm.The central tension system allows for easy adult removal and replacement.
A pool safety net should always be completely removed and safely stored before accessing the pool, to prevent the risk of entanglement. The pool safety net should always be replaced completely upon exiting the pool. Aesthetically pleasing does not cover or distract from the beauty of a sparkling clean pool.
Does not help to heat the pool or keep it clean or save on operational costs.
