If you own a high-end, beautiful pool, one of the best types of fencing is glass pool fencing. Its seamless look is elegant and simple. Besides, the toughened glass used in these fences is exceptionally durable, making it perfect for Australia’s extreme weather.
In this article, we’ll explore the many benefits of glass pool fencing. We’ll also go over more practical topics of fencing, such as local rules and regulations. By the end of this article, you’ll be able to choose the right type of fencing for your pool.
Types of Pool Fencing
A pool safety fence provides peace of mind and protection for families. Here are some of the most common types of pool fencing.
Above ground pool fence
If you have an above ground pool, the laws in Victoria require you to have fencing around the perimeter. AVI Glass can install a beautiful glass pool fence for you at a very competitive price. With a robust pool fence, you can relax while cooking or doing other activities. Rest assured that your kids and pets won’t be able to enter the pool unless you unlock it.
Aluminium pool fencing
While aluminium pool fencing still provides some safety, it’s not as beautiful as glass pool fencing. Aluminium pool fencing is also less expensive than glass, but it’s inferior in terms of security. That’s because kids can easily climb up the railing. Animals can also easily fit through the slots, potentially damaging your pool.
In terms of durability, aluminium pool fencing is also inferior to glass fencing. It’s more susceptible to rust, and intruders could more easily cut it or break it down than with glass.
Benefits of Glass Pool Fencing
Unlike other types of metal fences, glass ones are harder for children to climb. If your kids are young and adventurous, the chances are high that they’ll try to get into the pool while you aren’t looking. With a glass pool fence by AVI Glass, you can know that your children won’t be able to sneak into the pool.
When your pool costs thousands of dollars, you don’t want a clunky fence to take away from the design. One of the benefits of glass pool fencing is its luxury appeal. When friends and family come over, they’ll be impressed with the elegant look of your outdoor space.
Another benefit of the glass pool fencing from AVI is that it’s fully customisable. You can choose semi-framed or frameless glass fencing. Alternatively, you can opt for balustrade glass fencing which has a stainless steel railing.
The glass pool fencing at AVI Glass will keep you up to date with safety standards. Last year in 2019, a law passed requiring pool owners in Victoria to register their pool or spa with their respective council. Also, the safety barrier must be inspected and given a certificate of barrier compliance.
With AVI Glass, you don’t have to worry about your pool fencing not passing inspection. AVI Glass Fencing can do the assessment for you and give you the certificate of compliance.
Unlike other materials that will rust or wear down, glass pool fencing is made to age beautifully. Even in places with extreme weather like scorching heat or windstorms, customers rave about the durability of glass fencing.
Though some people may associate glass with something that breaks easily, glass pool fencing is made out of thick, strong glass. The chances of it shattering are slim to none!
