Check Your Pool Gate – Safety Compliance


Check your pool gate. Do your part to protect children. Drowning is preventable.

Children or toddlers who drown in pools most commonly gain access to the pool area through a faulty gate or fence—an entirely preventable tragedy. 
Our pool safety page and annual National Check Your Pool Gate Month campaign have been created to
assist and educate pool owners to create and maintain a safe pool zone.

Pool safety is our passion

D&D Technologies was founded on the invention of the world’s leading and highly awarded pool safety latch, MagnaLatch® in 1989.
Our TruClose® self-closing polymer safety gate hinges can also be found everywhere safety and protection is paramount.

D&D Technologies is committed to preventing toddler drownings worldwide and we work closely with water safety organisations globally. D&D has been awarded the Kidsafe Product of The Year award in the year 2000 for the MagnaLatch® as well as the recipient of three Australian Design Awards, a Good Design Award, and two Australian Design Marks for its range of gate latches, locks, and hinges.   

We’re proud to have a long and close association with Laurie Lawrence, a former Australian Olympic Swimming Coach, and champion of the drowning awareness program, Kids Alive as well as being a sponsor of the NDPA in the United States.
