Safety Pre Purchase Building Inspections
Pool barriers are required to be compliant when selling a property and safety is also the responsibility of the building inspector when conducting Pre Purchase building inspections.
Many inspectors miss the fundamental requirement of safety when checking gates.
The Australian Standards requires the gate to be tested through its full arc of operation.
Many inspectors simply only open the gate and test the latch mechanism.
