Swimming Pool Safety Nets in South Africa

Children drowing is a major concern of parents. Swimming pool safety nets have been used worldwide for over 30 years with hundreds of thousands installed worldwide. Over the years, they have changed and improved in many user-friendly ways. Pool safety nets are specifically designed as a barrier to help protect children from exposed, open water, be it a swimming pool, spa, water feature or koi pond. Rather like a large cargo net, the mesh-like net is stretched over the pool and anchored with flush mounted fasteners.

A swimming pool safety net offers some unique and desirable features as a solution to preventing infants and toddlers from entering the pool water unseen or unheard. A pool safety net provides a safe, secure barrier while maximizing the available backyard space and preserving the view and ambience of the swimming pool area. The small squares are too small for a child's head or body to fit through and too large to allow them to walk, play, jump or stabilize themselves on the surface of the pool safety net.

One adult can remove or replace a typical swimming pool safety net in just a few minutes. A series of pulleys is built into the center of the pool safety net. By loosening the pulley rope, the tension is released and the pool safety net is easily removed. This is called a central tensioning system (CTS) and best tensioning device available on the market today. Just unhook the clips and roll the pool safety net onto the portable roller. Simply reverse this process to place the pool safety net back onto the pool.

There are a few anchoring options for swimming pool safety nets which include tracks -- this anchoring mechanism is more often used in swimming pool covers.
