Let’s face it, if you’re going to have a pool at home, you simply must use glass for the fencing, as this versatile material ticks all the boxes from a homeowner’s perspective. Aside from allowing unrestricted vision into the pool, toughened safety glass is easy to keep clean, maintenance free and very durable, plus there are a number of ways to install glass pool fencing.
The Frameless Look
If you prefer a seamless length of glass, frameless is the perfect design, and the 12mm glass panels can either be channeled into the tiled floor or fitted to special spigots that are bolted to the floor. You should leave a 50mm gap at the bottom of the fence to allow water and debris to be easily cleaned away, and the technician would help you to select the best design. Sometimes the pool fencing includes the walls of the house, but this does not present a problem for the professional installers, who have seen it all.
Semi-Framed Pool Fencing
With glass fencing in Adelaide, this involves driving posts into the ground, onto which the thick glass panels are slotted into a special groove, and with rubber sleeves, there is zero movement. There are many colour choices for the aluminium posts, thanks to powder-coating, plus you can choose between satin and mirrored finish, and as everything is made to measure, you are sure of a perfect fit. If, for example, post must be installed on a grassed area, concrete would be used to provide a solid anchor, while the fencing would be smooth and level, regardless of the terrain.
Every state in Australia has pool safety guidelines and the fencing company would ensure that your pool fencing complies with state requirements, and when the installation is complete, check all of the safety points covered, then you can book an appointment for a certified pool safety inspector to visit. A pool safety certificate is valid for three years, after which, it needs to be reassessed, and when you sell your property, it is recommended that you have a valid pool safety certificate.
When you are ready to receive quotes for your pool fencing, simply search online for a local pool fencing company and they can help you with the design. Once that is completed, the technician can quote you a price for the project, and should you be in agreement, an installation date will be set.
Glass is the best material for pool fencing and with a professional installation, you can relax and enjoy the pool, knowing you have safety in mind.
