Diagram 4
This diagram shows a pool where part of the house is incorporated into the pool fence but the only access is by a door complying with clauses 8-10 of the Schedule. pool fence 17 
Diagram 5
This diagram shows a pool where part of the house is incorporated into the pool fence. There is access to the pool directly from the house by a door which the territorial authority is satisfied cannot be made to meet the requirements of clauses 8-10 of the Schedule (for example, position of latch and self locking ability of the door). It is instead fitted with a locking device that when properly operated, prevents the lock from being readily opened by children under six years old (i.e. the door complies with clause 11 of the Schedule.)  pool fence 18
