Glass pool fencing and glass railing systems have been growing in popularity and the TLC network has noticed. Make This Place Your Home (MTPYH) is an original home television series on TLC showcasing some of the most beautiful and creative designs in the architectural world. We couldn’t be more excited and honored to have our projects featured. The episode highlights some of our recent work including a glass pool fence installation in San Diego and one of our stunning glass railing systems at a cliffside home in Hollywood Hills. We hope you enjoy! Read below for some information on how glass fencing or railing can upgrade your home and don’t forget to check out our video below.
How a Pool Fence Can Work for You and Your Family
Our TLC episode features a Los Angeles family that chose to install a pool fence for the safety of their two young children. The mom of this lovely home wanted a fun place for her kids to swim and play but with knowing that close to 76% of child drowning fatalities are children younger than five she had her reservations. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has indicated that having a pool that is surrounded by a barrier fence reduces a child’s risk of drowning by 83% compared to a property-line fence. With that knowledge, she was sure a pool fence would be well worth the investment. She and her husband still wanted to see the beautiful view of their pool and yard and watch the kids while swimming, which led them to choose Aquaview Fencing. We installed a beautiful seamless glass fence with a childproof gate to give them the view, aesthetic, and safety they desired. We can proudly say we are all very happy with the results.
The Promise of Long-Lasting Safety
Aquaview glass pool fences are built with tempered safety glass and corrosion resistant hardware. The ½” thick tempered glass used in our pool fencing is double the thickness of that used in car windshields. Our heat-strengthened glass panels are much more durable than any kind of glass and are extremely difficult to break. The panels are installed with stainless steel clamps and can be embedded into many materials such as concrete, tile and wood.
How a Modern Railing Can Increase Property Value
The second project featured was a cliffside home in Brentwood Hills. This seductive contemporary estate has spacious rooms opening to walls of glass and light that extend thru to the balconies and out to the views. It is incredibly structured. The homeowners wanted a railing to match the design and not obstruct the look of the house nor the view from their patio. Due to the home being on a high cliffside they needed something safe and durable. We installed a frameless glass railing system for them. They knew that installing anything that didn’t match the modern and pristine style of their home could compromise the seamless aesthetic. Our fence pairs so perfectly, giving them the look and view they wanted and offers all the safety benefits to give them peace of mind. A variety of railing options are available to fit your personal style, from fully frameless to powder-coated aluminum and glass. Perfect for balconies, decks, interior railings, and stair railings.
