Is Your Glass Pool Fencing Expert Using The Best Quality Glass
As you probably know, if you’ve got a pool it needs to be fenced in. Recent changes in legislation have reinforced the need for pool areas to provide adequate levels of protection, particularly in relation to children. Unless you can prove your pool meets strict criteria, it won’t be certified for use.
Glass pool fencing provides the ideal solution, giving the protection you need while forming a near-invisible barrier that lets in light and provides uninterrupted views of your surroundings. But, the truth is, not all types of glass are up to scratch or fit for the job.
Glass used in swimming pool fences – whether that’s frameless glass pool fencing or the semi-frameless option – has to be strong enough to resist bumps and scrapes and should be constructed to strict Australian safety standards. It needs to be made from toughened glass to ensure it offers the right level of protection to small children and pets and anyone else who runs the risk of accidental submersion.
How you can find out if your glass pool fencing expert is using the quality of glass required to do the job? Here’s what you need to look for:
1. Glass should be labelled as safety glass and/or toughened glass to comply withPerth legislation.
2. Frameless Glass should be a minimum of 12mm thick to provide adequate protection inside and outside the pool. Fence posts and accessories should be constructed from heavy duty 316 marine grade stainless steel and or aluminium to discourage rust and discolouration.
3. Premium Colour Gates accessories and components are certified to Australian standards AS1926.1 Safety barriers for pools
