This article looks at the specifications, installation and price of frameless glass pool fencing erected around swimming pools that complies with South Australian pool fence regulations.
Frameless glass pool fencing gives you the most unobstructed view of your pool, water features and landscaped garden areas possible and is regarded as the ultimate modern pool fencing available.
South Australian swimming pool fence regulations specify any non boundary fence must be at least 1200mm high.
12mm thick toughened ‘Grade A’ safety glass, available in sizes from 0.600mm to 1800mm wide panels, is held in place by marine grade friction style spigots.
There are different shapes and styles of spigots available, with all spigots manufactured from 316 marine grade stainless steel or 2205 duplex stainless steel if used within 10km of the sea, or within 2 metres of a salt or chlorine water swimming pool.
The installation of frameless glass panel pool fencing should only be done by professional, licensed fencing contractors. At Visual Landscape Gardening we don’t take short cuts when installing frameless glass pool fencing, unlike many Adelaide fencing companies we have come across do.
All frameless glass fencing around pools is erected on a concrete footing 300mm deep and 400-500mm wide. If large format concrete pavers are used around the pool, the pavers above the footing are mortared for extra strength. This procedure ensures that there will be no movement, particularly when clay based soils expand and contract throughout the years.
Holes for the spiggots that hold the glass panels are core drilled through the pavers into the concrete footing to provide the strongest fixing system possible.
