The first thing you should do is check the location of underground services (gas, water, telephone and electricity) so you won't run into difficulties when you're installing your new fence.
You should also check with your local council to make sure your new fence will meet regulations.
These are the basic tools you'll need to get you going. Some careful planning, a little elbow grease and you're away.
We will supply you with all the fence components and fixtures you will need, but you should also have some other basic materials on hand.
*Warning: when choosing a concrete mix DO NOT use Quick set concrete as it will lead to corrosion of your fence
Self-closing ARC safety gates are designed specifically for pool fences
Regulations require that pool gates be installed to open away from the pool, so that young children will push the gate shut rather than open when trying to gain access.
Dig holes for the posts and a trench for the bottom locating rail. To maintain spacing, you may also wish to use a top locating rail. Position the gate unit to match the above ground reference heights. Then prop and check the line and level.
Re-check the line and level of the posts and pour wet concrete mix into the post holes to finish.
24 hours after you have poured the concrete you are ready to remove the top locating rail and/or any protective packaging. Check the instructions on the gate for spring adjustment and maintenance instructions.
The first thing you should do is determine which way you want the gate to open. For boundary fences, the gate should open in towards the property.
Insert the hinge bush into the gate frame, then set the spacers into position so they can support the gate and provide ground clearance. Next, slide the hinge brackets into the hinge bushes and mark the locating hold position onto the gate post. Now remove the gate and drill holes to match the bolts provided. Finally, locate the hinge brackets into position.
Slide the gate onto the lower hinge and drop the top hinge into the gate frame. Now tighten the bolts and check the gate opening action.
Firstly, position the ‘D' latch on the post with tek screws so it will be aligned with the striker bar when the gate is closed. Then fix the striker bar to the vertical gate frame and check for smooth operation.
