Absolut Custom Glass Systems was pleased to be asked to provide a quote for the penthouse pool in the highest residential building in Australia, on the top floor no less. We came highly recommended for the penthouses management agents that had the job of making sure the pool was compliant with safety regulations.
Of course, only toughened clear glass would be suit such a spectacular penthouse with a view to match that is the envy of people all around the world. The client insisted that we only use marine grade stainless steel fittings, that wasn’t a problem as we use that on all our glass pool fence installations. It was also requested that we use hydraulic soft close hinges, these are a luxury item that guarantee longevity and a super quiet self-closing mechanism. Hinges on pool fences are required by law to be self-closing, and although our standard spring loaded stainless steel hinges are adequate, the hydraulic ones do it in silence.
The hard part about this job was getting the team to stay focused on the job at hand, with such an amazing view is was easy to be distracted and find yourself gazing out over the kilometers of beach and ocean in front of you. Luckily, we had a great team on the job and we were completed by lunch time, with as little disturbance as possible to the penthouses management. The owner services department were very helpful and made sure that we had great access and use of the trade elevator so we could transport the glass all the way to the 74th floor.
Remember, the days are gone when frameless glass pool fences were only seen in penthouses like this. We can design something to suit almost every budget so your home can also have the five-star penthouse look. Check out our completed projects here.
