Allys Frameless Curved Glass Pool Fencing
CURVED & BENT GLASS POOL FENCING GOLD COAST
We were contacted by a client that had been referred to us by a previous customer as the ‘best in the business’, we were happy to have that label and proud that our previous jobs had earnt us that reputation. This client had an amazing outdoor area that backed on to the river system on the Gold Coast. They were a couple that had small grandchildren and had not yet installed a pool fence because the client had been shopping around for someone that he could trust.
It didn’t take long to find out why this client had spent so long shopping around before he found us. They had a very neat little custom made pool in their outdoor area and these clients would not be satisfied with anything else except for a fully frameless glass pool fence that followed the curves of the pool. Yes, that’s right, curves. This job would require a little more attention in the measuring up and when designing curved glass pool fences we find it is best to measure not once or twice, but three, four or five times. This job had no room for error as the glass was to sit just outside the shell of the pool, so if it didn’t match the curves as close as possible then this would be obvious when you looked down at the edge of the pool.
After several site visits and some serious number and formula crunching by our master designer, we were ready to order the custom curved panels to be made. As the client had to wait for the manufacturing time for the glass as soon as it was delivered to our warehouse we were on site the very next day to begin the installation. This was a job that required all the help we could muster as there are a few things that must done differently when installing curved glass. Our top installers were called in to make sure the job went smoothly and we could complete in one day.
We did end up having to go back for a couple of hours the next day due to some customization we had to make for the gate latches but it all went well in the end. The client was over the moon with the final product and could put another curved glass installation in our hat. Although the pressure to get it exact is a lot on these types of jobs, when it come off so well it does make us very proud of the work we do.
The result was a fantastic looking curved frameless glass pool fence in 12mm toughened clear glass that was of course fully compliant with the pool safety regulations. This type of pool fence is a real stand out and will no doubt be a talking piece for our clients for years to come.
