Quad-X Reinforced 1” Aluminum Pole

Life Saver Pool Fence uses Quad-X Reinforced 6063T6 1” Aluminum Poles spaced no more than 36” apart. Mesh is secured to the pole via an aluminum cove molding using roundhead screws spaced no greater than 6”.

The temper rating of T6 scores the highest tensile strength (30 ksi) within the 6063 alloy classification.

On July 14th, 2003, Life Saver Pool Fence Systems, Inc. contracted Nutting Engineers of Florida, Inc., an ASTM standards testing lab established in 1967, to test the pole strength as per the Florida Building Code section 424.2.17.1.15.

At the time of testing, a lateral force was applied to a single pole at a measurement of 36” from the surface of the deck. In the test, the resistance to lateral pressure was found to exceed 70 lbs. of pressure before failure on any single pole in a free standing installation, thus exceeding the 52 lbs. of horizontal force prescribed by the Florida Building Code section 424.2.17.1.15 Paragraph 1.

ASTM F-2286-05

On January 10, 2006, Life Saver Pool Fence was found to meet and exceed all requirements for ASTM Standard F-2286-05.
