When Glass Pool Fencing became affordable for homeowners
When glass pool fencing started to become popular for residential homes more than a decade ago the founder of Absolut Custom Glass Systems, Jason Walsh could see the potential for this type of pool fencing on the Gold Coast. With a strong background in design and business he teamed up with a long time glazier friend.
This was a time when glass pool fences were only seen in resorts and five star hotels and with the manufacturing costs of toughened glass gradually being more economical, glass pool fencing could was becoming affordable for home owners. After designing and installing more than a few fences for friends and family the word soon began to spread that glass pool fencing on the Gold Coast was no longer limited to the resort and hotels.
It didn’t’ take long before the neighbors of our very first customers began to ask for our phone number and wanted to have glass pool fences installed around their own pools. This was when the internet was still gaining traction and smartphones didn’t exist. All our business in those days was from word of mouth. Over the last 15 years of installing glass pool fences on the Gold Coast we are an industry that has been able to reduce our prices. 15 years ago, a glass pool fence would have cost double of what it costs now due to the manufacturing processes advancing with economies of scale.
