Glass Pool Fence Gates
Premium Glass Pool Fence Gates
Including a glass gate to your frameless or semi-frameless glass pool fence is an essential item as you could imagine, there is no point having a pool that you can’t get access to. Whilst there are some variations on the size of pool gate you can have, the sizes can be limited due to the weight and positioning of where you would like to have your gate.
The standard sizes that most glass pool fences can accommodate come in widths of 750mm, 834mm and 890mm. These are for a standard 8mm thickness toughened glass gate with spring loaded self-closing hinges. Self-closing hinges are required by legislation to ensure that your pool fence gate will close automatically from any open position. It is possible to have a larger gate fitted with spring loaded hinges however we have found that the sail area of the gate can hinder how well it closes. That means that as the gate acts as a sail with the wind, these forces work against it closing sometimes, depending on the location of the gate.
Whilst the standard spring loaded hinges are adequate for pool safety compliance there is another product on offer that allows a much softer close and eliminates almost any latching sound that you get with spring loaded hinges. This type of hinge is a premium product but allows us to use a slightly thicker glass gate that will match the frameless panels at 12mm thick.
Not only does the soft self-closing hinge almost eliminate any noise when closing and enables thickness matching of the glass panels on a frameless system, but it also allows us to design and custom manufacture a gate that is slightly wider than standard. This is of course within reason, but we have generally found gates up to 1000mm wide will still close gently with a premium soft close hinge. As the glass cut-outs for this hinge are also different to the standard hinge cut-outs we can make sure the glass suits the opening perfectly.
As the cost of these hinges is generally a lot more than what our customer had envisaged here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems we only charge our clients our cost price when invoicing. This way we can ensure the customer has the quality product they expect without any shocks to the budget.
