FAQs

What products do you use with your glass fencing?

SEMI-FRAMELESS – We use 10mm toughened glass panels with polished and bevelled edges that comply with Australian Standards AZ / NZS 2208, and T5 Structural Grade Aluminium semi-frameless posts for all our Semi Frameless Glass installations.

Where can I find the appropriate standards for swimming pool safety?

Attached below is the Australian Standard (AS 1926.1-2012) Swimming Pool Safety – Part 1: Safety barriers for swimming pools.

Does The Glass Pool Fence Comply With Local Council Requirements?

Local Councils follow the Australian Standards 1926.1-2012 and all of our installations are guaranteed to meet this standard.

What is the timeframe for the installation of my fencing?

Timeframes vary for each installation, and can only be judged once they’re quoted. However, generally our lead times are 2-3 weeks from March-August each year, and our lead times are 3-4 weeks from September-February each year.

Can the glass pool fence be attached to a timber deck?

Yes, however this isn’t the recommended base for your fence, as timber isn’t as sturdy and reliable as concrete is. The best method is to use concrete beneath the decking to allow standard drilling to take place. We then install thick galvanized pipes into the concrete, and these galvanized pipes are used to bring the spigots up to the height of the decking.

Can the glass pool fence be installed into concrete, poured aggregate, liquid limestone or limestone blocks?

Yes. As stated above, these are the four strongest floor surfaces for glass fencing to be installed into. Our professional installation team core drills holes through your floor surface to create a hole of sufficient depth for the stainless steel spigots or aluminium posts to be placed into, and then a high strength grout is used to secure the spigots or posts

Can the glass pool fence go into paving?

A semi frameless glass pool fence can go directly into paving. However, a fully frameless glass pool fence needs a 300mm wide x 300mm deep continuous concrete footing under the paving in the line of the pool fence.
