If you are a parent of smaller children and you are considering fencing for your pool or other hazardous areas, you should consider tubular fencing. There are several benefits and uses for tubular fencing that are ideal for parents with younger children. If you have never considered it as an option before, here are just a few reasons to consider it now. Keep in mind that most fencing and landscaping contractors do stock and install tubular fencing in a number of residential landscaping areas.
The first reason parents should consider tubular fencing is because of the durability. The fencing can hold up to most of the damage, kicks, collisions and other issues that children can do to a fence. They can also handle being climbed on while still maintaining their durability and strength. This means there is a reduced chance of the child or children breaking the fence and causing injury to themselves or costly repairs to the fencing that could lead to the replacement of fencing panels as well.
When you install a picket fence, chain link fence or other types of fencing, you may notice that the tops of the fencing are not smooth. In fact, some of the fencing tops can have pointed top edges or ornamental options that can cause significant harm if the child comes in contact with them. For example, if a child tries to climb the fence and ends up catching themselves on the fence top, they can cut themselves badly or get hung up on the pointed edges with their clothing and break a bone. With tubular fencing, the tops of the fencing are rounded off so that there is a reduced chance of injury if the child does come in contact with the top of the fence during playtime.
An aspect that many people do not know about tubular fencing is that it is mobile. As your child grows, you can have the tubular fencing moved to create larger boundaries or new boundaries. This is especially true with fencing around pools and areas of the yard that may be dangerous at one age and not as dangerous as the child grows older. The fencing can be moved easily by a fencing contractor as needed.
These are just a few of the reasons that parents should consider tubular fencing as a landscaping option. If you think that tubular fencing may work well for your family, contact your local fencing contractor. They can help you with the design, layout and installation. They can also help with questions you have about the different options available to you.
