Rolltop® pool and garden fencing
Rolltop® pool and garden fencing is one of the leading South African products when it comes to garden fencing and pool safety. Rolltop® fencing has been manufactured since 1963. Rolltop® is currently manufactured in Roodepoort, South Africa.
Why do you need a pool fence?
Drowning is one of the top five causes of death for children under 5. For every drowning there are eleven near drowning incidents, according to government statistics; many of which result in totally disabling brain damage. An accessible pool is more dangerous for your toddler than a loaded gun lying out on your coffee table. In a child's hands eventually it will go off! But unlike the gun going off into an unknown direction, the outcome with a toddler falling into a pool undetected is almost certain.
Pool safety is your responsibility.
A pool fence MUST block off all access from the home to the pool. Half way measures here are like playing "Russian Roulette". The only time the pool fence should be opened is when you are using the pool supervised at ALL times.
Rolltop® complies by the SABS standards as well as the new bylaws of the City of Johannesburg council.
A pool fence must be 1,2m high
The gate must be self-closing and self-latching.
The aperture distance between verticals must not be bigger than 100mm.
Rolltop® panels are manufactured from high tensile steel. It maintains its shape, whereas mild steel loses its shape and bends easily.
The posts are 50mm in diameter.
Seven horizontal bars for extra safety and sturdiness, compared to the normal two horizontal bars of most other pool fencing.
The aperture between the verticals is 92mm.
The frame of the gate is made from 20mm square tubing and will not bend when force is applied. Eccentric hinges are welded to the post to ensure the gate is self closing. No springs needed. Rolltop® also comes with two lockable catches that automatically latch when gate is closed for extra security.
The triangular shape (Rolltop®) on top of the fencing makes climbing over more difficult as it makes the child insecure.
There are NO loops in the triangular top section; therefore it is impossible for a child to get his head caught between the loops causing suffocation.
