Code Compliant “Authentic” Pool Fence

Iron Railing Panel Detail

A client had a beautiful pool area that had originally been built by his father. All the old pool railing did not meet current codes. The desire was to meet today’s codes with a product that looked authentic and was true to the original design intent of the horse farm.

So a new “old” Iron Railing was built with Iron, custom forged medallions created to be in alignment with crest of the horse farm. For corrosion-free Iron Railing everything was galvanized to CIW-2135-I specs. This gave the project the authenticity, character and irregularity of a project built 100 years ago, but according to DOT, this duplex galvanized and powder-coated railing at 120 years to 20% failure.

So a family now has a beautiful Iron railing for their pool area for their grandchildren to enjoy for decades.

Secure, Code Compliant, Iron Pool Fence
