Aluminium Fencing or Frameless Glass for your Pool Fence, this question we will help you with in the following article. When planning to protect any pool area, your little slice of paradise, it first needs to be compliant. In order to achieve this, you are going to need a pool fence. A pool fence is one of the few utilitarian structures where you have the opportunity to also look fantastic whilst adding some value to your home. Pool fences come in a number of differing styles and designs, however; at the end of the day you are going to need to choose between aluminium fencing or frameless glass pool fencing.
At Absolut Custom Glass Systems on the Gold Coast, we strive to provide exactly what our clients want and need. The following are some of the key factors to consider when deciding between an aluminium or glass pool fence.
Safety should always be your first concern
When deciding on a style of pool fence, the first thing that must be taken into consideration is the level of safety that a particular pool fence will provide in your individual backyard or property. Even though an aluminium pool fence could get you that form 23 compliance from the G.C.C.C – it may not be as safe as the smooth face of a frameless glass pool fence. Even though aluminium fence does not really have any stepping points, the argument can be made that the bars are easier to climb opposed to the completely flat surface of a glass pool fence. Absolut Custom Pool Fencing will typically only use aluminium flat-top in on the outer edges of a pool fence, such as a garden or rugged rocky incline where a glass panel is not feasible.
Aluminium Fencing is Cheaper
Your budget is another factor to consider when deciding on a pool fencing system. Even though an aluminium pool fence is slightly cheaper than a frameless glass pool fence, the end result is chalk and cheese. Frameless glass pool fences are now far more affordable due to advances in manufacturing processes and logistics. This means that a beautiful frameless glass pool fence from Absolut Custom Glass Systems on the Gold Coast is now far more affordable. At the end of the day you get what you pay for – we aim to provide our clients superior quality without breaking the bank.
Glass Fencing, Maintenance is never an issue
You want to enjoy your pool area, not watch it gradually deteriorate over time. Glass is an almost timeless compound, rain hail or shine it will still glisten the same as when you first install it. The same can’t be said for the aluminium counterparts that are prone to weathering overtime. Just as a little exercise we invite you to imagine an old unkempt pool area; the kind where the pool water is green with algae and rubbish. Now imagine the pool fence in the backyard – We bet you are not picturing a frameless glass pool fence.
