A Guide to Frameless Glass Fencing
Frameless glass pool fencing is a modern aesthetic option for your household or commercial property that provides safety and wind protection without a clunky look or obscured views. With clear glass, you’re free to view the beautiful backyard you’ve perfected or watch the kids swim worry-free. The standard height ranges from four to five feet and the glass panels are climb resistant to prevent any accidental sneak-ins from children or pets while you are away.
Glass Fences are Strong and Durable
Glass pool fencing is constructed with durable ½ inch tempered safety glass and stainless steel clamps, providing you with secure and durable barriers that are built to last. When people hear “glass” fencing they typically think of something that looks pretty, but may not endure the many weathers of life. Rest assured, Aquaview fences are extremely durable and built to last a lifetime. The tempered safety glass used in Aquaview fences is very thick and tough. Tempered glass is a heat-treated glass which is six times stronger than regular float glass or annealed glass. Stresses in the glass are induced in a very specific way to increase the surface stress in relation to the internal stress. This makes it one of the most utilized glass options available in architecture. It is more heat tolerant and scratch resistant than regular glass. Not only will your fence have a beautiful modern look to view your pool, you will also have a tough impact resistant panel that has a 24,000psi rating and engineered to meet HOA laws and pool safety codes.
Glass Pool Fencing is Low Maintenance
Another question many customers have is about cleaning requirements and water spots in such close proximity to the pool. It may surprise some, but glass fencing is actually one of the easiest types of fencing to maintain. A simple wipe down every few months with mild soapy water is all that is needed to keep a pristine view for your home or property. Those who live near the ocean or have a high-traffic commercial pool may consider EnduroShield. This permanent glass coating reduces cleaning by 90%. Even though this feature is offered, it is not necessary for the average residential project as our tempered glass is already low-maintenance due to the type and quality of glass we use.
Glass Fences are Engineered to Meet City’s Safety Regulations
Easy access to the pool is also available with our Aquaview pool gates. They are engineered to meet pool codes and are self-closing and self-latching. Our gates come with two slow-close #316 stainless steel hinges to prevent any slamming and a key lock safety latch for peace of mind. Climb-resistant glass panels and childproof gate features are designed with child safety in mind. Although there are many traditional fencing options in the market today, consider glass pool fencing which provides all of the safety, aesthetics, and durability without compromising a beautiful view.
