Pool Safety Inspections Tip #22: Can a pool fence be made of corrugated iron?

A pool barrier may be constructed from corrugated metal, however, there are rules about when corrugated metal can be placed  horizontally. As stated in Appendix D of AS 1926.1:2007, any pool barrier less than 1800 millimetres in height must not have  corrugated metal placed horizontally. If a pool barrier is greater than 1800 millimetres in height, corrugated metal may be used  vertically or horizontally.

Pool owners should be aware that corrugated metal, when placed horizontally, may be considered to be climbable and may require  shielding in order to comply with the pool safety standard.
