New legislation has recently been introduced regarding the fencing of pools. AS 1926.1-2007 provides guidelines for these testing requirements designed to ensure young children cannot gain unsupervised entry to the fenced area around the pool.
SI Instruments have developed the Pool Fence Testing Kit, containing all components necessary for the tests outlined in AS 1926.1-2007.
Included in the kit... The 500N analogue force gauge is easy to use, easy to read, and simplifies the setup of the test. The highest reading is shown until manually cleared and there are no batteries, ensuring the gauge works every time. The ergonomical cradle allows the analogue force gauge to be operated with two hands, allowing for more efficient testing.
The cone has been manufactured to the specified size from HDPE to reduce weight according to AS 1926.1-2007. The adjustable strapping ensures the cone can be easily positioned in the centre of the fencing openings. The minimum force these openings must withstand is 150N.
The compression plate is attached to the opposite end of the same gauge, eliminating any change-over time. It is designed for the testing of structural components which must withstand an initial minimum force of 250N, and after inspection 330N. The compression plate is rubber-padded to prevent damage to the fence.
The complete kit is supplied in a durable ABS water-proof carry case.
