Invisible Channel Fix Glass Fencing
INVISIBLE CHANNEL FIX GLASS POOL FENCING AND BALUSTRADES
When people search for a glass pool fence on the Gold Coast, they are usually overwhelmed because there are many styles of glass pool fencing on the market now. That is actually why we at Absolut custom glass would like to provide you some facts to help you become more educated and be more satisfied with your choice. There are many things to take note of when it comes to deciding on what style of glass fence you want this includes: the neighboring environment, what may be existing already in that area, the location of the fence, and of course, what sort of budget you have. In this part, we wish to take you through what we call an ‘invisible channel fix system’. It is actually a popular choice because it lets the glass seem to come straight out of the floor without any need for any other type of hardware or fixtures.
The glass used for this type of work is a 12mm thick toughened panel that is 135cm high and is available in various widths to suit all sorts of fence configurations. This kind of installation achieved the highest degree of aesthetics, and a 5-star ‘ experience’. On the other hand, in order to achieve this, it calls for a little more work in the beginning before the glass is set. We often have inquiries for this kind of system when your home is being actually built– which means that we have the chance to liaise with the builder before the installation. We can still install this around existing pools and buildings, but it does call for some concrete cutting and considerable planning
For many years, we have developed our system of this particular installation and have actually been using this now for many years. Firstly, a channel is cut into the cement near the fence line. This channel is 10cm deep and approximately 4.5 cm wide. We after that lay a specific type of shock absorbing plastic within the channel that our team will use to put the glass on. We then set the glass right into the channel, in position and start to fill up the void with a special kind of non-shrinking grout which in the end will support the glass vertically.
For this sort of installation preparation is vital, and we have a lot of years of knowledge behind us that we do not make missteps. If mistakes are made in the planning and setting of the glass panels then it is an very expensive and unpleasant job to have to clear away panels to re-set them. This is due to the fact that the glass actually does rise from the ground with an invisible channel system. There is nothing visible except for the glass panel itself. No spigots, no posts, no shining pieces of hardware standing out.
We would mention this is one of the most minimalistic look we can accomplish with glass pool fencing, and if this is the look you want then that will be the most reliable option for you. We still can make certain that the pool fence meets all of the safety regulations for swimming pool fences and make certain the fence will pass the proper certification. The system we use has been designed and perfected by us and we have not seen anything else on the market that comes close.
So if you are hunting for the ultimate and the very least intrusive look for your pool fence we would encourage the invisible channel system.
