DIY Glass Pool Fencing: The Setup
If you possess the abilities and the know-how, or have spoken with someone who has and are still keen for taking the project on then you should look around for a good provider who sells at practical prices. Most glass pool fence supply companies can offer you goods at a highly discounted price in comparison to the major hardware chains. You should choose one that is happy to chat with you over the phone or one where you can pick up the goods yourself. Any piece of expert information will help you on your way to setting up your very own glass pool fence. This guide is not a step-by-step instructions for setting up fences because every kind of fence will vary somewhat in its set up and each location will require a different sort of approach– that is why specialist pool fencing installers are usually needed. Even so, that being said, if you do choose to take the DIY method, we would like to offer you a handful of recommendations for various types of installs so you have a greater possibility of success.
DIY Glass Pool Fencing: Timber Deck Applications
For the non-professionals, we only advise installations to timber decking as this is one of the simpler kinds of installations. This process is easier as there is no requirement to take care of concrete cutting for holes and provided that your deck is in good condition then there should be no problem with attaching a glass pool fence or glass balustrade to it. One of the most vital thing to bear in mind with this type of setup is that the glass is exceptionally hefty and in strong wind locations the glass screens can function as a sail and catch the wind. Because of this, we strongly endorse that the joists underneath your deck be double in the places where the base plated spigots will be mounted.
Although there are a bunch of spigot designs out there, most will have a 100mm radius, or similar where the spigots have to be connected to the timber. This is typically done with four holes in the base plate of your spigot and to guarantee that each baton screw (recommended fixing) will be going into a substantial piece of timber. This is obtained by utilizing double joist timber underneath where the spigots are installed. This will make sure your glass panels have a solid base and decrease the movement in the wind.
