Glass pool fencing has taken off as the preferred fencing solution for Australian homes. It not only looks beautiful, it adds value to your home.
It has always been admired and envied, but many homeowners hesitated to look into glass fences to enclose their pool areas. Sometimes it was because they assumed it would be too expensive and sometimes they thought it would be too fragile for their rough and tumble families. Now that the word is out that glass pool fencing is both affordable and durable, pool owners are not hesitating anymore.
Different types of Frameless Glass Pool Fence Fixing & Installation Options
One of the advantages of glass pool fencing is that it gives you a completely unobstructed view. Because our glass panels are made of A Grade, 12mm, modern toughened safety glass, they can be very wide and only need to be fixed from their bases. This gives the entire fence a sleek, sophisticated look without sacrificing strength or security.
We offer two standard methods of fixing your glass pool fence panels securely from their bases:
- Channel Fixing: While your pool is being built, channels are built into the concrete surrounding the pool. Then the glass panels are placed into the channels and grouted into place. Channel Fixed pool fencing gives a truly seamless pool surrounding that blends beautifully with your outdoor area and garden.
- Spigot Fixing: a fitting that is first fixed to the ground. Then the glass is secured to specially designed marine grade stainless steel "spigots." This type of fitting is ideal because it "floats" the glass about 50mm off of the ground, eliminating dirt and debris buildup and the accumulation of dirt on the bottom of the glass.
We also offer Pin Fixed, Standoff Fixing for pool fencing - because these can be slightly more complicated options, please contact us to get your obligation free quote for these options.
