Glass Pool Fence Gates
Premium Glass Pool Fence Gates
Including a glass gate to your frameless or semi-frameless glass pool fence is regarded as an essential item, there are likely loads of products that you can choose from. It may be wise to think about the size of the gate, the weight, the placement, the way it opens and the types of hinges you would like to use.
The conventional sizes that most glass pool fences can suit come in widths of 750mm, 834mm and 890mm. These are for a conventional 8mm thickness toughened glass gate with spring loaded self-closing hinges. Self-closing hinges are needed by legislation to ensure that your pool fence gate will close automatically– after all safety is key, and you don’t want to risk anyone inadvertently getting into the pool. It is possible to have a bigger gate matched with spring loaded hinges however we have found that the ‘sail area’ of the gate can hinder how well it closes. That means that the gate can catch the wind and act as a sail with the wind, which means that these forces work against it’s ability to close sometimes and can bring about issues.
If you are looking out for a better variety of hinge for your pool fence gate, we highly recommend checking out soft-close hinges. Whilst the standard spring loaded hinges are adequate for pool safety compliance there is another product on offer that permits 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 and makes it possible for us to use a slightly more thick glass gate that will match the frameless panels at 12mm thick.
Not only does the soft self-closing hinge almost eliminate any sound when shutting and enables thickness matching of the glass panels on a frameless system, but it also enables us to design and custom manufacture a gate that is slightly wider than standard. This is naturally within reason, but we have typically 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 distinct to the common hinge cut-outs we can make sure that the glass suits the opening flawlessly.
Because we strive to deliver the best quality at affordable prices, we in fact offer a great deal for these styles of hinges. As the charge of these hinges is generally a lot more than what customers plan, here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems we actually only charge our clients our cost price when invoicing. By doing this we can ensure the customer has access to a premium product while still maintaining a budget.
