Frameless glass pool fences are really an awesome investment to any swimming pool, but you really want to ensure that you are getting a great price while not compromising safety and security – so make sure your pool doesn’t have any dangerous climb points.
At Absolut Custom Glass, one of the reoccurring challenges we see on the Gold Coast is that a lot of people have ‘climb points’ near where the pool fence needs to go. Why is this a predicament? Well if you need to get your Gold Coast Pool Fence certified (by the way, you officially must) you need to ensure there are no climbing points. If you are stressed over any of these points, you can find out more about it on the QLD government website or if you have any questions you can call us on 1300 937 902 or learn more the Absolut Glass Pool Fence website
So, what is a ‘climb point’? These are typically things like Tap fittings, garden beds, as well as areas of the house. But at Absolut Custom Glass, we are used to dealing with this problem with Frameless Glass Pool Fences, therefore we use what is known as ‘polycarbonate’ to take down the climbing hazard. This is done by creating a special cover made from polycarbonate that fits over the tap. If it has an angle on it greater than 60 degrees then it cannot be used as a climbing point. This is vital because we understand that removing external tap-fittings may not always be an option.
We use polycarbonate for this aspect of our Pool Fences on the Gold Coast because it is a far more durable product and will not fade like the previous types of Perspex. So, you can feel confident that in years to come the polycarbonate mouldings that we recommend will still look like new and remain clear.
And don’t forget, these rules apply to everybody. So even if you don’t have toddlers, these ‘climb points’ still need to be fixed. It is a very strict rule, and one that we encourage you to take very seriously.
So if you are in the Gold Coast and are checking out a Frameless Glass Pool Fence, we recommend you to be familiar with the areas around your pool– and make certain that when you pool fence is set up you consider those prospective climb points.
