In Australia, pool enclosures and fences are mandatory in order to make sure that there will be no accidental drowning. Know these regulations when having your fencing built to keep your children and pets safe.

About pool fencing and barrier safety standards
The NT government has strict safety regulations for residential pools and spas, including a requirement that any pool or spa must have a barrier. The types of barriers depend on the size but often include fences or moats to prevent access from children who are not supervised by an adult.
The Northern Territory (NT) is home to many harsh natural elements such as extreme weather conditions which make it necessary for all homes with pools in their backyards to be equipped with either fencing around them-particularly if they’re private property where there’s no supervision at all times-, moats so small children can’t get out without assistance, locks preventing anyone who isn’t authorized from gaining entry into the backyard area etcetera; all of these measures help ensure your family’s safety.
Different standards and certification requirements apply depending on:
- if your pool was installed before or after 1 January 2003
- and if the property has previously been sold, transferred or leased.
The laws and regulations for pool safety barriers in the NT are in the Swimming Pool Safety Act 2004
The standards on this page apply to residential properties including:
- caravans and mobile homes in a caravan park.
The rules and standards are not compulsory for residential properties greater than 1.8 hectares, but you can choose to get certification for a pool safety barrier if your property falls into this category. You should fence your pool or spa even if you do not want it certified just in case someone trespasses onto the premises without warning.
There are two pool safety barrier standards in the Northern Territory (NT):
- Modified Australian Standard
- Community Safety Standard.
The Modified Australian Standard is the higher standard. In cases where compliance to both safety standards might seem impossible or burdensome it is always better to look for alternatives that could provide a safe design as opposed to falling back on dangerous practices such as improvisation.
The NT swimming pool safety laws and regulations reference the following Australian Standards:
- AS 1926.1 – 1993 Swimming Pool Safety Part 1: Fencing for swimming pools
- AS 1926.2 – 1995 Swimming Pool Safety Part 2: Location of fencing for private swimming pools.
The Modified Australian Standard is a modification of these standards.
The modifications relate to:
- requirements if chain mesh fencing is used
- and measuring the height of the fence from inside your property, instead of from your neighbour’s property, if a common fence is part of the pool safety barrier.
The modified Australian standard is a set of detailed rules and measurements that dictate how pool safety barriers must be installed in order to restrict accesses by unsupervised children under five years old.
The Community Safety Standard requires that a pool safety barrier must be designed, sited, installed and maintained so the barrier will prevent unsupervised children under five years of age from entering your pool area.
The Community Safety Standard can only be applied to some pools ;installed before 1 January 2003.
In some situations, your pool safety barrier may not be able to meet the requirements of the Modified Australian Standard or Community Safety Standards. Non-standard barriers are allowed in these cases and they still must comply with regulations requiring them to restrict access for children under five years old.
The non-standard safety provision can only be used if the owner is aware of the risks posed to a child by the swimming pool. This means that, even though there are no physical barriers separating children from potential hazards like chlorine and other chemicals in pools, they will still be protected with this additional measure as long as their parents have been made aware of how dangerous these elements may potentially be for them.
The situations where the non-standard safety provision can be applied are:
- where the land or buildings or the design of the pool make it difficult and it would not be reasonable to require the pool safety barrier to comply with the standard requirement
- on a small property with an area less than 300 square metres
- on a property with water frontage like a beachfront, river or marina
- a spa pool on the balcony of an apartment where self-closing and self-latching doors and windows restrict access
- a spa pool with a lockable lid or cover.

Semi-Frameless Glass Pool Fencing has revolutionized the way that we do pool enclosures. It is one of the very few elements that allow pool owners to have a tailored and unique style without the risk associated with the reasons why it became mandatory to have them in the first place. When installed properly, they have the ability to make a statement to any property while standing apart from the main structure.
Creating a harmonious balance between form and substance has always been a problem for many space designers over time. When it has become mandatory to enclose pools with specified materials, many homeowners frown at the idea that these structures will eventually become some sort of an eyesore. Thanks to the advent of modern engineering technologies, semi-frameless and frameless glass pool fencing have become commonplace. It has the capability of protecting you and your family while keeping the pool aesthetics visually appealing because they are essentially transparent.
Darwin Pool Fencing is one of the first service providers to offer frameless and semi-frameless glass pool fencing in the area. Our installers and designers are some of the most skilled in creating pool enclosures that are not only secured but also add to the overall charm of the pool area. Call us today and learn more about the different options that we have here at Darwin Pool Fencing.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
how long does it take to complete a pool fencing project?
In general, poolside enclosures and pool fencing take between a few days to a couple of weeks to be installed. Depending on things like the materials used for the fencing, the area of the pool to be enclosed, as well as all the preparatory groundwork needed before the fencing process can be undertaken can affect the duration of a project. Call our hotline today to request a more accurate timeline tailored to your own requirements.
How much does a pool fencing project cost?
There are different factors that affect the cost of a pool fencing project. Majorly, things like materials used for fencing, area of the enclosure, duration of the project, among others play a vital role in the approximation of the project cost. However, here in Darwin Pool Fencing, we can work within a reasonable budget. Just call our hotline and one of our expert installers can help you with an accurate cost estimate for your project.
How do I find the right safety solution for my pool?
There are a number of pool safety options available to ensure the well-being of your loved ones. You can review our informative comparison and explore other pages for more detail on each option, here at Pools Fencing Darwin! If you’d prefer, you can schedule a free consultation & quote by a local independent installer. They’ll send an expert to your home who will work with you to determine the best option and can quote you a price for the project.
Are your fences compatible with irregular pool shapes & features?
Our pool fences, covers and nets are customs built for the shape of your pool. They can accommodate irregular shapes while adapting to stairways and other features which may increase their cost or time of manufacture.
Automatic pools have an exception; few pools are able to support automatic cover functions so it is best to consult with both a nearby installer who assesses if modifications need to be made before installation occurs as well as our team on whether or not they will work together depending upon where you live in regards to wind patterns (the further north one goes).
How long will my fence, net, or cover last?
Our products are made from high-quality materials, so if you properly maintain them and use them well then they can last many years.
- Ultra” style pool fencing comes with a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty
- “5mm” pool nets come with a limited 5-year manufacturer’s warranty
- Mesh pool covers come with a limited 12-year manufacturer’s warranty
Consult with your local independent installer for details on your automatic pool cover warranty.
How can I be sure that an All-Safe Product meets my state’s requirements for pool safety?
Do you know what type of pool safety equipment is required in your area? We recommend discussing the requirements for residential pools with a local independent installer before buying any products. For example, many states require fences to have self-closing and self-latching gates around residences with children under six years old living there.
What is the difference between Semi-Frameless and Frameless Glass Pool Fencing?
The main difference between semi-frameless and frameless glass pool fencings is the amount of frame (typically made of aluminum or other alloys) that can be seen. Semi-frameless enclosures usually have a visible frame as part of their design while frameless ones don’t.
