In most cases, the answer is no. We’re a safety-first company and carefully design our portable spas to meet the fencing requirements stipulated in Council requirements.
Here are the stipulations made by councils.
- A cover may be used as a barrier for a small heated pool with a water surface area of 5m² or less and with walls that stand 760mm above the adjacent floor or ground.
- The cover must restrict the entry of children when closed.
- The cover must be able to withstand a reasonably foreseeable load.
- The cover must be able to be readily returned to the closed position and have signage indicating its child safety features.
Our spa covers far exceed the minimum requirements outlined.
