Aquaview frameless glass pool fencing is constructed with durable 1/2 inch tempered safety glass and #316 stainless steel clamps. The glass pool fence panels are secured to the ground with clamps that are surface mounted or core mounted into the surface.

Tempered safety glass is six times stronger than regular float glass, making it one of the most utilized architectural glass options available.

Our glass panels have polished edges and can be custom cut to fit any layout.

Surface mounted clamps are bolted into the surface using screws. Core mounted clamps are designed to be drilled directly into the surface and partially filled with concrete.

Aquaview offers round and square #316 stainless steel clamps with polished and brushed finishes.

Aquaview’s Fully Frameless Glass Railing provides a seamless, minimal look to complement your property’s aesthetic. An aluminum base shoe channel locks the ½” tempered or 9/16” laminated panels in place. It can be surface or fascia mounted to a variety of substrates. This is our strongest system, rated for high-wind zones and balconies. An optional top rail can be added.

Aquaview’s Aluminum Glass Windscreen is a semi-framed system that provides wind protection and security, with minimal visual obstruction. The aluminum posts between each glass panel are secured with a steel stanchion insert. This is our tallest system available, in heights from 3ft to 6ft and available in eight powder coat finishes.

Aquaview’s Aluminum Glass Railing is a fully-framed aluminum system designed for balconies and decks. It has a low profile top rail and is built to standard guardrail height of 42”. This system is available in eight powder coat finishes.

Aquaview’s Standoff Glass Railing is a fascia-mount guardrail with a modern, frameless look. Round stainless steel standoffs are designed to secure the glass panels to the side of concrete or steel walls.

Glass pool fencing can be installed onto concrete, tile, wood, grass, and dirt. For grass/dirt surfaces a concrete footer must be poured first for stability.

 

To meet guardrail code, a top rail must be installed. All of our railing systems meet guardrail code. Our frameless glass pool fence system meets code as a safety fence and windscreen; it is not intended for guardrail or balcony applications.

There are no refunds or exchanges on any orders once the order is processed.

Glass pool fencing requires little maintenance. A simple wipe down with mild soapy water every few months will keep the glass looking like new.

Top clips are an optional piece of hardware that clips between your pool fence panels, to ensure perfect alignment and give a distinctive look. They can also serve as a floating indicator to make the fence more visible in dim lighting. Top clips are optional and do not affect the structure of the pool fence.

It depends on the size of the project, typically between 1-5 days.

No, we do not install. However we work with a network of licensed contractors across the country, and can introduce you to one in your area.

Installation guides are available upon request. Call or email us today for more details.

We offer Enduroshield, a permanent glass coating that reduces cleaning by 90%. Though Enduroshield is popular with our commercial and oceanfront clients, it is not necessary for the average project, as the tempered glass is already very low-maintenance on its own.

You can expect delivery of your pool fence in approximately 4 weeks once the order is processed.
