What are the defects?

The products do not comply with Australian Standard AS1926.1 2012 Safety Barriers for Swimming Pools section (b).
If the gate is open, turning the key in the striker component of the gate latch may cause the gate to remain locked in the open position.

What are the hazards?

If the glass gate remains unlocked, it will not prevent unsupervised access to the pool or spa area, posing a potential drowning risk.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact Metforce on 08 9302 3686, email or visit and a replacement will be sent immediately.

Consumers are to secure the pool gate until the replacement has been installed.
