BOCA POOL CODES - POOL GATES
D&D Industries Tall MAGNA LATCH, magnetic style pool code approved child safety is self latching and out of reach of small children. Latch releases at the top of the extension tube.
Pool gates are the point of entry for pedestrians and therefore the main access of small children. Children are inherently curious, watching adults enter and leave the pool area. Children are also very clever at manipulating handles, doors, and cabinets. Since gates are where the majority of children (4 years and under) enter the pool area special emphasis in placed on gate security.
Gates are to open outward away from the pool. (if the gate were open in toward the pool, a child could jimmy the gate, fall into the pool area when opened, and be inside the danger zone. When opening outward there is less chance for the child to enter the pool area unsupervised.
Gates are to have tensioned hinges, be self closing and self latching. The spring load hinges should close the gate from wide open to just barely open. The release mechanism of the latch is to be 54" or higher from the outside grade. This is to keep small children from reaching up and releasing the gate.
