Fully frameless with patch fittings
FULLY FRAMELESS PATCH FITTINGS GOLD COAST
With so many different types of glass pool fencing on the marketplace we decided to try and present you a clear explanation of every type. This write-up will explain exactly what a patch fitting system is and whether it is suitable for you. There are many factors that come into play when picking what type of glass pool fence to buy, like the immediate environment, if the system will have to match anything that is existing, own personal taste, and naturally, budget.
A patch fitted frameless glass fence system employs either a 10mm or 12mm thick toughened glass panels suspended by little metal clamps that hold the glass in place. These clamps are referred to as ‘patches’ in the industry, and this produces an illusion that the glass is floating between a pair of posts, only held up by these four clamps.
The glass is often going to be either 10mm or 12mm thick, the deciding factor boils down to the space that the glass has to span between the posts. There are certainly specific rules which vary from one state to another which is the reason that we recommend using a professional installer. Importantly one that understands the regulations from your local area and can guarantee that your pool fence or balustrade will definitely pass the necessary inspection for compliance.
These systems have the tendency to be a good option when your house already has a few existing posts and the ground may not be a strong concrete base– this choice gives additional support to make it a safer system. A good example is a patio or verandah with a roof that is supported by posts and the ground may be a slightly older timber deck or paved on top of a gravel base. A frameless glass panel that is mounted on spigots may not actually be among the most suitable application for this kind of ground so the next best thing is for a patch fitted frameless system. The glass is still what we would certainly call a frameless system, as the glass is not actually set into any posts, but is suspended by the four little patches, two on each side.
