How To Prevent Accidental Drowning At Your Home or Property

Did you know that drowning is the leading cause of death amongst children ages 1–4, second only to congenital birth defects?

The American Red Cross and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention both cite lack of proper barriers such as pool fences as a leading factor that influences drowning risk.

Many residential homes do not have pool fences because home owners are worried that a fence will ruin backyard aesthetic and the beauty of their landscaping. What many people don’t know though is that in most states, home owners can be held legally liable for drowning deaths that occur on their property.

Frameless glass pool fences offer a solution for both concerns and are the most modern trend in architectural design and safety. The transparent glass panels allow for enhanced water safety with unobstructed views.
