We recently had a customer ask us what the difference was between our products and the product from one of our competitors. Many of our competitors import their aluminium pool fencing on the cheap from China and it can be difficult for a consumer to know the difference in quality.
At DIY Pool Fencing, we manufacture all of our aluminium fencing within Australia at our Yatala head office. We adhere to strict quality control methods to ensure our fencing is made to stand the test of time.
Chinese manufacturers cannot really be held accountable for their product like Australian manufacturers can. As a result they are able to cut corners on a number of manufacturing processes. The engineering and welding is often of poor quality. In addition we have witnessed imported products that have used a substandard pre-treatment process and cheap powder for the powder coating. It is common for the powder coat on these panels to flake off, sometimes within a few months.
Below are some pictures from our powder coating company, South East Qld Powder Coating Pty Ltd showing some stages in the aluminium powder coating process.
Supporting Local Economy
By buying locally made pool fencing you are helping to support Australian workers and their families. We could manufacture our product in China but we have made a conscious decision to support Australia’s ever diminishing manufacturing industry. When you buy your pool fence panels via DIY Pool Fencing you are helping to support local powder coating and aluminium supply companies.
After Sales Service and Support
We stand by the quality of our product and we are always available to assist customers if they have ongoing questions or for some reason encounter any issues. The same cannot be said for those imported products that will result in little to no support after purchase is made.
