Razor House Frameless Glass Pool Fencing
FRAMELESS GLASS POOL FENCING GOLD COAST
Pool fencing projects are really exciting when our company have the chance to partner with a number of the very best building firms in Queensland. For the Razor House venture we teamed up with a long-time client of Absolut Custom Glass Systems, the Thallon Mole Group. We performed this project having an idea that it would probably be a show piece for our glass and architectural abilities well into the near future. Thallon Mole Group is a high-end building company established in Brisbane that ask for the greatest quality when it comes to items and trades that are made use of on their jobs, so they know to rely on us for Custom Glass pool fence services.
The Razor House was a substantial job as we were actually asked to install not only a glass pool fence, but also glass balustrades. The plan was to expertly install a custom 12mm toughened glass balustrade on the spiral stairs that would wrap the elevator shaft, and this glass balustrade turned out being without a doubt not only the centrepiece of the home, but also just one of Absolut Custom Glass Systems’ preferred installations on the property. Like all jobs, professionalism and accuracy were key; we had to make sure that we did it correct the very first time. The stairs, located in the middle of the living area in the house needed to have a double-sided balustrade along with one edge being extra high to make sure that it enclosed the elevator shaft.
This project also demonstrated our talent with curved glass, a specially developed material that we custom-made fit to the works that want an extra element of class and style. Absolut Custom Glass Systems, partnering with Andy Mole from Thallon Mole Group, had the ability to supply the curved glass balustrade in a set of 18 panels that were curved and bent to hug the staircase. The photos from the job show how the amazing build came together. Thallon Mole, the owners, and Absolut Custom Glass were delighted with the end product that was finished to time and budget.
After the custom-made curved glass balustrade, the home posed a second challenge – the Pool fence. As you would anticipate for a property of this quality, the pool was marvelous. That meant that it needed some unique solutions to make sure that it was truly safe, but likewise suited the style and seamless finish from the rest of the house. The pool fence needed to be sitting just outside some fantastic sliding concertina doors that kept the weather out. For this we had to creep the glass pool fence panels as near to each other as practical, which is not a thing typically done with pool fences. We ended up having a five-millimetre gap in between each invisible fixed panel that was packed with a glazing silicone. These panels were fitted into the concrete using an invisible channel system that produces the illusion of the glass rising straight out of the ground, without any stainless-steel spigots any place to be seen.
We are definitely very pleased with this property and our highly skilled staff that helped us achieve it. We continue to partner with the Thallon Mole Group and they know Absolut Custom Glass Systems is always up for a challenge in making some of Australia’s most distinct and elegant residences from Brisbane down to the Gold Coast.
