Advantages of Frameless Glass Fencing

Glass pool fencing is becoming a preferred fencing solution for homes owners.  Previously consider to fragile and expensive Homeowners are finding this to be a safer option. Able to withstand the elements and your family’s rough housing, Glass enclosures are more attainable that ever.

Why Go Glass

One of the advantages of glass pool fencing is that it gives you a completely unobstructed view. Never worry again that a little one or animal has slipped into the pool unnoticed. Each glass panel is made of modern safety glass that is tougher and more durable that allows each panel to be wider and only need to be fixed from their bases. This provides a sleek, sophisticated look without sacrificing strength or security. Glass panels are easier to clean never need painting and reduces mold and mildew.

What's our secret... It all in the fitting. There are three methods of fixing glass panels securely from their bases: 

  • Channel Fixing: This is done during the initial construction of the pool.  channels are built into the concrete surrounding the pool. Then the glass panels are placed in the channels and grouted into place.
  • Standoff Fixing: a type of hardware that holds the glass away from a vertical surface such as the side of a flight of stairs, a balcony or a deck. Typically used as pool fencing for an "infinite" pool that is built against a wall.
  • Spigot Fixing: Used when there is an existing pool. First a fitting is fixed to the ground. Then the glass is secured to specially designed marine grade stainless steel "spigots." This type of fitting is ideal because it "floats" the glass about 50mm off of the ground, eliminating dirt and debris buildup and the accumulation of dirt on the bottom of the glass.

We recommend spigot fixings whenever possible. PFC offers an exclusive Magna Hinge closing system for glass doors. These self-closing hinges close softly and securely and their stylish minimalist design complements a frameless glass pool fence perfectly.
