A Quest For Mesh
When we first got involved with removable mesh pool fencing in 1988, people from all over the U.S. wanted to use this system for their pets. Most of these inquiries involved dogs, but some were about other pets.
In the beginning, we sold our pool fence system to pet owners because we thought it would do the job. We found out how wrong we were.
The animals were clawing the mesh. In a few minutes, a few hours or sometimes a few weeks or months, the fabric would be shredded!
We then told new customers that it didn’t take much for a dog to get through the material. Some homeowners bought our product anyway — and some of their pets destroyed the pool fence.
In 2002, at a fabric trade show, we found what seemed to be a perfect mesh for outdoor dog fencing. We tried it out at a kennel. It worked! We then started to produce a new pet pool fence only to find out that the mesh we thought would work … didn’t. This started a search that has led us through dozens of mesh materials with one failure after another.
In 2005, we were shown a video by a manufacturer that showed dogs trying to get though a mesh fabric. We tried the material, but it too turned out not to be as resistant to pets as we required. But the way the mesh was constructed gave us a new direction in our search for a mesh for pet pool fencing that we would be comfortable with.
Today, we offer a pet mesh material that has proved quite tough.
Pet Mesh Fence
Our black polyester mesh, which we spent five years developing we now call our “pet mesh”. The holes in this mesh are very small. Pets find it very difficult to claw through this mesh because their claws are too large to fit into the mesh material. This mesh is very tough but also see-through.
(This is our 5 foot tall black mesh fence. Because this 60 pound Aussie couldn’t reach the top border material, she could not penetrate this system. Her claws scratched at the mesh until she was worn out without damaging the mesh!)
Pet Fence Poles
We needed a pole that a large pet couldn’t break. Our first pet fencing used the same pole we used on ourOriginal pool safety fence. This worked very well until the larger animals started jumping on the fence. Eventually, these aluminum poles broke off where they come out of the deck from metal fatigue. When we switched over to Guardian’s Premier Pole we realized that even the largest of animals couldn’t cause the pole to break!
Now when we ship this pet fencing system we believe that there is no equal anywhere on the planet! The Guardian Pet Fence Systems are truly unique to the pet fence industry. Our outdoor dog gates are the best mesh pet gates you can find anywhere. Best of all it is removable, so you can take it down and put it back up whenever you want.
