Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence Mounted on Spigots
FULLY FRAMELESS GLASS POOL FENCING GOLD COAST
There are so many designs of pool fencing on the marketplace today and so we made a decision that we should try to explain just what these systems are and also how they work. It is important to us that every single customer understands their options, and chooses the style that best meets their requirements. Some of the factors which we will definitely need to think about are: pool safety compliance, building code compliance, looks, the need to suit an existing system, the close environment, and finally, the budget.
One of our more popular choices is actually the fully frameless glass pool fence system. It is a fully frameless glass system including glass panels, supported on top of small metal posts called ‘spigots’. Typically it will include 12mm thick toughened glass panels, while the spigots are a small post that could be either placed into the floor or prepared with a ‘heavy duty’ rapid-set cement. This is actually usually done when the glass panels will be set up on top of a stable concrete base. One choice that helps make this glass pool fence very flexible is the possibility for the spigots to be mounted to a timber deck. This will of course 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 can be some adjustment tolerances possible, but ultimately that will add to your maintenance time on the fence. However, if done properly from the beginning then the fence ought to be maintenance free – except for a little cleaning.
For glass pool fencing especially, 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 distance from the glass panel to the side of a structure. These rules are rather specific and that is why we always recommend getting a professional installer to install the glass, especially on the Gold Coast considering that all pool fences must be passed by a Pool Safety Inspector.
The end product will be panels of glass that appear to be floating in the air except of course for the two spigots. This style of pool fencing has become preferred over the past several years due to the availability of the toughened glass on the market. So, the name really does say it all; a frameless glass fence.
