Introducing Glass Pool Walls

Pools can be a great addition to any home. Not only do they raise the property value considerably, but they also make for a fun way to get the family together outside. Of course, pools need to be fenced off to mitigate the risk of children falling in. It’s also important to keep wildlife out that can drown and cause a mess. Until recently, options were relatively few for fencing a pool in. That was until now.

Glass swimming pool fences are the new trend in home design and it doesn’t look like it will be going away. They provide the necessary safety all pool owners are looking for, but do it an extremely fashionable way. Owners can choose from numerous options like round power coated posts to anchor the enclosure. Of course many opt for the frameless glass fences.

Not only do they look great, but glass pool walls don’t impede your vision of the pool, so you can always keep an eye on what’s going on. This is a safety advantage not afforded by traditional pool fences. But it could end up saving someone’s life.

When purchasing a glass wall for our pool, you will want the builder to confirm the structure meets Australian standards AS1926, AS2829 and AS1288.  Otherwise, your barrier will actually lack the safety precautions you bought it for.
