What is frameless glass fencing?
Frameless glass pool fencing is fully endorsed toughened glass installed into stainless steel floor spigots. These spigot floor supports hold the frameless glass panels in place, offering durable and unobtrusive pool fencing. As a result, frameless glass fencing offers unobstructed sightlines of your pool in a modern and contemporary style.
What is the difference between frameless and semi-frameless pool fencing?
Very similar in style, semi-frameless pool fencing consists of glass panels installed into aluminium or stainless steel hardware secured between each glass panel. As a result, it is not strictly ‘frameless’ and does lack the seamless appearance of completely frameless pool fencing. No horizontal rail or ‘handrail’ is usually installed with semi-frameless pool fencing.
How long does glass fencing take to supply and install?
This depends on the style and custom nature of the pool fencing project you’re undertaking. Once we have precisely measured your pool area and planned your pool fencing in line with Australian standards, we can order the materials for delivery. Once the fencing and supporting materials are delivered, installation can begin. Again this aspect of the project depends on the type and size of the project. For ‘standard’ projects we allocate a week from the ordering of materials to the commencement of installation. For customer material involved, we look to add an additional 3 to 4 days to this timescale.

How easy is glass pool fencing to maintain?
Extremely, although there are products that can ‘coat’ your glass pool fencing, all you need to maintain the glass panels is soap and water. Ideally, look to clean the outside of your glass fencing thoroughly at least every six months. When in constant use, the inside of your pool fencing should be cleaned every month, as should the hardware.
How much will frameless glass pool fencing cost?
Again this largely depends on the special design requirements of your pool fencing project. For a more thorough breakdown of the cost of glass pool fencing, view our blog post on the topic here.
Are there safety standards relating to the installation of glass pool fencing?
Yes, there are strict Australian standards and NSW regulations relating to pool safety. You must take these regulations into consideration before starting a project of this type. Get in contact today for a chat about how best to comply with these pool safety laws.
How is a glass pool fence project started?
The easiest way to begin is to give us a call for a no-obligation quick chat about your particular circumstance so that we can suggest a way to go forward. We can then arrange a time that suits you to meet at your property so that we become more familiar with the site, listen to your ideas, discuss anything that may influence the final design, and take some formal measurements. We will then come back to you with estimates for whichever number of options that have been discussed.
