Our journey with Protect-A-Child started in 1980. We purchased a home in South Florida that had a swimming pool. We needed safeguards in place to protect our children, ages one and four, from unsupervised access to the pool. We fell in love with the product first, from a consumer’s perspective. The attractive mesh fence was a perfect fit for our family, because we could remove it with ease for entertaining and it didn’t detract from the pools aesthetic. We wanted a proactive approach to protect our kids from a traumatic water experience. That is why we went with a fence over a reactive device, like a pool alarm.
Our consumer research proved Protect-A-Child was by far, the best in the pool-fencing category. The high-tech fiberglass posts were unmatched by any other fence company. Additionally, we loved that the posts complied with national electrical code, yet another fantastic feature, given the proximity to water. Protect-A-Child Pool Fence fit every stringent requirement we had from a parental perspective. It also helped that it came highly recommended by Pediatricians and pool professionals everywhere.
The unmatched peace of mind we enjoyed with our personal fence convinced us to join the Protect-A-Child Pool Fence family in 1980. Perfection, high standards and a passion for details is what made Bo Dunn, the perfect man for the job. His career and essential characteristics required to be a successful Air Force and Delta Airline Pilot, transferred well into the pool fence sector. We helped start Protect-A-Child Pool Fence. There was only one other company available and they did not fit with our business philosophy. The owners of the parent company believed in the same business philosophy as we do.
We moved to Atlanta in 1987, upon which we started the Protect-A-Child Pool Fence Southeast distributorship. As design and installation experts, we have won the “Most Attractive Fence” award voted on by all distributors at four International Conventions in addition to two “Most Difficult Installation” awards. The Protect-A- Child Pool Fence Company continually sets the standard for safety, strength and quality in the pool fence industry.
Pool fence installation is serious business. Little good it does families if it’s done incorrectly. The only thing worse than no protection is a false sense of protection. That is why we pride ourselves on taking the time for every detail with the installs we do. Every parent with small children, living near water, deserves peace of mind. This product does just that, and we want to be the ones to bring it to them. Our commitment to making pools “Baby Safe” is still as strong today as it was when we used it for our own children.
