Frequently Asked Questions

What is frameless glass pool fencing?

Frameless glass pool fencing is an innovative product that combines safety and style. Aquaview frameless glass fences are built with ½ inch tempered safety glass and corrosion-resistant stainless steel clamps. Glass panels are secured to the ground with either surface mount or core mount clamps.

What is the height and width of the glass panels?

Glass pool fence panels come in heights of 4ft and 5ft to meet local safety codes. Glass panels are always custom cut to your specific project needs, and available in widths up to 5 feet. No “stock panels” here. For glass railing systems, the typical height is 42”.

How strong is tempered safety glass? It is safe to use for fencing and railings?

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. It is specially designed for safety fencing and railings. 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.

How much cleaning / maintenance is required?

Very little maintenance is required. A wipe down with mild soapy water every 6-8 weeks will keep the glass looking like new. Check out our post about glass cleaning for more details.

Are your pool gates self-closing? Can I lock them?

Yes. All of our pool gates are self-closing and self-latching. They have “soft close” stainless steel hinges and a lockable safety latch.

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

Surface Mount Clamps are bolted into the ground using wedge anchors or lag bolts. Core Mount clamps are designed to be set into a pre-drilled hole with expansion cement. There is no difference in the hardware cost. Your installer may recommend a particular method based on your ground surface.

What surfaces can I install glass pool fencing onto?

Glass pool fencing can be installed onto concrete, stone, tile, wood, grass, and dirt. For grass or dirt, a concrete footing must be poured first for stability.

Do your pool fences meet safety code?

Yes, Aquaview glass pool fences and pool gates are engineered to meet pool code in every state.
