Perhaps you are trying to make sure the pool fencing at your Northern Gold Coast home is compliant with the latest standards. Alternatively, maybe you have a compliant pool fence, but don't like how the aesthetics of the design blends into your landscaping style.
Either way, glass pool fencing might just be the perfect solution to your problem. At Artwork Glass, our talented head Glazier has been creating artful pool fences, and other glass works for more than 15 years now. Our glass barriers look great and are tough enough to rival the performance and security of any metal fence design. Best of all, our glass pool fencing designs in Northern Gold Coast are either frameless or semi-frameless, which means they don't impede your view or detract from the rest of your landscaping.
Why Glass Pool Fencing Is Worth a Look
The preservation of sightlines is one of the biggest benefits of choosing glass pool fencing and balustrades for your Northern Gold Coast property. For many homeowners, the swimming pool is a focal point of their landscaping. A well-designed pool can be set right in the middle of a deck, or incorporated into a large garden design with water features and other décor. Even if your pool isn’t a key component of your landscaping, it’s still likely a prime entertaining spot—a place where you want guests to be able to congregate and admire your garden, patio or other parts of your property freely. Metal and wooden fences obscure sightlines, but glass fences and balustrades preserve your views and emphasise the beauty of your swimming pool area.
Having open sightlines is also a major perk when your kids are in the pool, and you want to keep an eye on them. With tall and opaque fences, it's tough to supervise the kids from anywhere other than right next to the pool. With a glass fence, you can relax on the patio or deck and monitor from there—without fear of being splashed.
Of course, safety of the little ones is a big part of the reason that glass pool fencing is so popular in Northern Gold Coast. In Queensland, standards require that pool fences be at least 1200mm tall. There are also other regulations, such as that the fence must be a certain distance from other scalable objects. These standards are in place to keep children from getting into the pool without supervision. At Artwork Glass, we can design a fence for you that ensures legal compliance across the board—thereby providing peace of mind that the kids in your neighbourhood are safe.
Finally, glass pool fences are easy to clean. The frames and bars of aluminium fences could prove a hassle to keep clean—to the point where many homeowners don't even bother. With a glass pool fence, it's easy to wipe down the fence after winter, to ensure that it looks clean and pristine for the upcoming summer season.
