When it comes to Frameless Glass Pool fencing on the Gold Coast, lots of people imagine a few small panels around the standard backyard pool. But no longer! Absolut Custom Glass Systems involved in the creation of the Q1’s Penthouse Pool– on the top floor of the Gold Coast Q1 building. This Frameless glass pool fence is now the tallest residential pool fence in all of Australia. Absolut Custom Glass Systems were thrilled to have been brought in on the venture and were glad to be part of such a spectacular structure.


So what did it take to construct the amazing Q1 Pool Fence?

This being the penthouse, luxury was of course important. That meant that we opted for the Frameless Glass Pool Fence option– amazingly uninterrupted views that let the pool blend flawlessly with the rest of the penthouse for a five star feel.

Of course, only toughened clear glass would satisfy such a magnificent 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 challenge as we use that on all of our glass pool fence installations in the Gold Coast. It was also asked that we use hydraulic soft close hinges, these are an upscale item that guarantee longevity and a super quiet self-closing mechanism. Hinges on pool fences are obligated by law to be self-closing, and although our basic spring loaded stainless steel hinges suffice, the hydraulic ones are fantastic and do it all quietly– so if you are on the Gold Coast looking for a Glass pool fence– consider the hydraulic hinge option for an extra bit of class.


The hard part of the Q1 Pool Fence job was getting the group to stay concentrated on the job at hand, with such an amazing view is was easy to be distracted. It was such a famous aspect of the Gold Coast we felt honored just to be involved. There was a soothing charm to the room, and you often would end up gazing out over the kilometers of Gold Coast coastline and ocean before you. Luckily, we had a terrific team on the job and we were done by lunch time, with as little disturbance as possible to the penthouses management. The owner services division were extremely helpful and made certain that we had great access and use of the trade elevator so we could transport the glass all the way to the 74th level.

I consider that this kind of job is vital– not just considering that it was for such a superb Gold Coast Icon, but because it stands as a little bit of a unique statement. Back even just 10 years ago, when we started our Glass Pool Fence company many of our jobs installing Custom Frameless Glass Pool Fencing were generally for these 5-star penthouse style homes. It was genuinely only for the richest people on the Gold Coast. Now, the overwhelming quantity of our jobs are for your regular people– it is more budget-friendly than ever and it gives each and every home an extra touch of prestige that absolutely is a true statement about the Gold Coast.
