However, to comply with the safety by-laws of the local council, a proper fencing surround must encompass the area, though that does not mean one has to sacrifice aesthetic beauty in that process. One of the most classically elegant choices of pool fencing is a frameless glass balustrade that brings to mind the simple sophistication that was a popular choice for the 1960’s elite. This type of structure relies heavily on the importance of design to maintain the beauty of the property, but it does so in a way that does not compromise the required level of safety demanded by law.
All local council stipulations are adhered to carefully, ensuring that the home’s value receives maximum benefit and the view is not compromised in any way. This is classic contemporary design featuring floating glass panels that are supported by small, barely noticeable braces placed along the base. There are no poles or lines presenting an obstruction to the view from the recreational area, or creating an intrusive barrier that disturbs the overall flow of the house and property. There was a time when this pool fencing option was only available to those who had an astronomical budget, but now this innovative concept is much more affordable.
The glass floats are 12mm thick and come in several different lengths, ranging up to two meters, manufactured by a process that toughens them above the normal standards so that they will be suitable for the challenging conditions of Australia’s unique climate. They are held in place by hardware of a Marine Grade stainless steel and powder coated, high quality, anodized aluminum for strength, beauty, and durability. The pool fencing installation can be fitted with various fixing profiles that are designed to comply with budget restrictions and site specifications like face pins, channels, and spigots. A somewhat more cost effective and economical alternative to the classic no-frame design, is a semi-frameless glass balustrade that encompasses the area in safety, without detracting from the full aesthetic of the home.
This is a viable option for almost all homeowners who wish to achieve a look that is sleek and modern, at a savings that can be up to thirty percent. There are a range of selections in this category that are designed to comfortably fit into several different budgetary constrictions, allowing more individuals to enjoy such beautiful pool fencing surrounds. Slim vertical poles, made from anodized aluminum, finished in either silver or a standard matte black, are used to connect the 10mm floating panels of toughened glass which complies with all local safety standards and regulations. There are no rails running horizontally across the top, or along the bottom of these surrounds, to disturb the flow of the view. This type of product utilizes the same high quality components such as spigots, posts, railing, hinges, latches, and gates, as the frameless pool fencing designs.
