Semi-Frameless Full Post
An Affordable Glass Fencing Option
This option, Semi-frameless Full Post is a Glass Fence with full size posts and is precisely as it sounds. There is a partial frame, and it is supported by full length posts. The glass is established into the posts using a wet or dry glazing method. The wet method is when a silicone is applied to lock the glass, and dry simply means that we use a rubber insert that wedges the glass into the post to secure it. The glass used in this particular type of system is typically a 10mm thick toughened panel.
Each sort of glass fence used definitely will depend heavily on the ground which is below the glass and used to support the sections of glass. If the floor is not very stable and there is a risk that it may move with the weight of glass panels on top of it then this semi-frameless system with posts could be the best for your property. This is because the posts used are set into the ground and reach the top of the glass panels. This produces a rigid fencing system with less risk of the posts moving because the stability of each panel helps to support the whole system.
It is possible to install this sort of system on a high quality hardwood porch as long as the deck has double joists below to ensure that the base plates of each post can be securely installed. As with most glass fence systems the more solid the base, the less chance there is of any movement of the glass which will put it off square. Glass panels that are not square are an eye sore, and also that, unsound.
This kind of Glass Pool Fence system is good in the Gold Coast because the glass panels do not tend to flex as much as a fully frameless system considering that the posts keep it more rigid. This system can also be combined with other types depending on what is most pleasing aesthetically and what kind of budget you have. As the glass is 2mm thinner than a frameless system it generally is available a little more affordable, and depending upon what the ground is like where the fence will be put up may be the best choice for some customers.
