While many South Florida residents choose the less expensive option of a wooden fence for their pool area, there are a number of benefits inherent in an iron fence. In Florida, all swimming pools are required to be surrounded by a fence and it must meet specific requirements that iron fencing can accommodate.


Iron is a highly dense material that creates an unsurpassed option for fencing. That density also makes it heavy and a difficult substance with which to tamper. It won’t be easily damaged or bent by high winds. Iron is even stronger than aluminum.


Iron is long lasting and can provide excellent service for a decade. Iron fencing isn’t subject to situations that include rot, mold or the depredations of insects. In the unlikely event that a portion of the fence does become damaged, that section can be restored without replacing the entire fence.

Low Maintenance

Specialized paint and coatings can be applied that makes it resistant to moisture, rust and corrosion for a very low-maintenance solution. The coatings will need to be reapplied periodically and the frequency will depend on local weather conditions, though reapplication frequency is less in milder climates.

Construction Options

The pickets of an iron fence can be installed to meet pool fencing requirements, while still allowing pool owners to see through it. Iron fencing can also be installed with wire mesh between the pickets.


Safety is the primary concern with pool fencing and iron provides a highly secure solution. Safety and security are aspects where iron excels. It’s an effective barrier to prevent children, pets and wildlife from accidently entering the pool.

Beauty and Value

Iron fencing adds value to homes with a pool. Wrought iron is also available that has a sophisticated and elegant beauty with which other materials can’t compare. It has a higher density than ordinary iron and can be fashioned into customized shapes and designs. Wrought iron is often called the “100-year fencing.”

The South Florida soil composition can create difficulties when installing a fence. Specific rules are in place to mitigate problems and ensure they’re anchored properly. The professionals are cognizant of all those specifications.
