What is frameless glass pool fencing?

Aquaview frameless glass fences are built with ½ inch tempered safety glass and corrosion-resistant #316 stainless steel clamps. Glass panels are secured to the ground with either surface mount or core mount clamps.


What height and width are the glass panels?

Glass panels come in heights of 4ft and 5ft to meet local safety codes. Glass panels are custom cut to your project specs, and available in widths up to 5 feet. No “stock panels” here.


What is tempered safety glass?

Tempered safety glass is six times stronger than regular float glass. It is durable, tough, and impact resistant, making it one of the most utilized architectural glass options out there. Tempered safety glass is engineered to meet HOA laws and pool safety codes, with a 24,000psi rating. Our glass panels have polished edges and can be custom cut to fit any layout.


Do your pool gates meet safety code?

Yes, Aquaview pool gates are engineered to meet pool code in every state. They are self-closing and self-latching, with slow close stainless steel hinges and a side-pull safety latch (with optional key lock).


What is the difference between surface mount and core mount clamps?

Surface Mount Clamps are bolted onto the ground surface using wedge anchors. Core Mount clamps are designed to be set into a pre-drilled hole with wet concrete.


What surfaces can I install glass pool fencing onto?

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


How long does it take for the materials to be delivered?

Your glass fence materials will be delivered approximately 3-4 weeks after the order is processed.


How long does it take to install?

Depending on the size of the project, between 1 to 5 days.


Does Aquaview offer installation services?

We do not offer installation services. However we work with a network of licensed installers across the USA, and can introduce you to a local contractor in your area.


How much cleaning / maintenance is required?

Your glass pool fence will require little maintenance. A wipe down with mild soapy water every 6-8 weeks will keep the glass looking like new. Read our post about glass cleaning here.
