Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence Mounted on Spigots
FULLY FRAMELESS GLASS POOL FENCING GOLD COAST
There are many designs of pool fencing on the marketplace today therefore we made a decision that we need to try to explain just what these systems are and also how they work. This is extremely important to us that each and every client understands their options, and chooses the style that best meets their demands. Several of the factors which we will certainly have to think about are: pool safety compliance, building code compliance, designs, the need to match an existing system, the direct environment, and lastly, the budget.
Among our more sought-after choices is actually the fully frameless glass pool fence system. This is a fully frameless glass system consisting of glass panels, supported on top of small metal posts known as ‘spigots’. Typically it will consist of 12mm thick toughened glass panels, while the spigots are a small post that may be either placed into the floor or set with a ‘heavy duty’ rapid-set cement. This is usually done when the glass panels will be set up on a stable concrete base. One option that helps make this glass pool fence very flexible is the option for the spigots to be installed to a timber deck. This will needless to say depend upon the quality of the deck, and if it is properly prepared with enough joist timber to fix through the decking.
The glass sits inside these spigots and supports the panel, which can weigh anything up to 80kg. Because of the weight of these glass panels it is extremely important that the ground they are being set on is solid with little or no prospect of motion or slippage for the lifetime of the fence. There may be some adjustment tolerances possible, but essentially that will add to your maintenance time on the fence. However, if performed the right way from the beginning then the fence ought to be maintenance free – with the exception of a little bit of cleaning.
For glass pool fencing specifically, there are strict rules controlling to the spacing between the panels as well as the distance from the ground to the bottom of the glass, and the space from the glass panel to the side of a structure. These rules are quite specific which is why we constantly recommend having a professional installer to install the glass, especially on the Gold Coast for the reason that all pool fences must be passed by a Pool Safety Inspector.
The finished product will be panels of glass that look to be floating above the ground except of course for the two spigots. This style of pool fencing has become popular over the past several years because of the availability of the toughened glass on the market. So, the name really does say it all; a frameless glass fence.
