Glass for Pool Fencing
A glass balustrade around swimming pool may be needed for various reasons. But almost always, when someone chooses the pools fences, the question of how to make them functional and at the same time as invisible as possible arises. Glass fencing for swimming pools is one of the most suitable options for those who aspire to successfully tackle this problem.
Typically, people place glass pool balustrades in the areas with well thought-out landscape design. Previously, the property owners could choose only from the cumbersome constructions which spoiled the appearance of the exterior design. That is why, frequently, the owners decided not to install a pool balustrade at all. However, as a result, the safety of the swimming pool area decreased. Fortunately, nowadays, it is possible to avoid this choice due to the use of glass pool fencing.
Advantages of Swimming Pool Glass Balustrade
A modern glass balustrade around swimming pool has the following advantages:
- Increased strength.
- Great safety.
- Wonderful aesthetics.
- High functionality.
- Incredible durability.
- Ease of maintenance.
- Wide choice of design solutions.
- Maximum light transmission.
- Excellently clear view.
Of course, it is necessary to make a wise choice between the pool glass balustrade systems. However, fortunately, there are many design options for such fences. Therefore, for each case, you can find the most suitable solution.
So, if you are searching for the most invisible pool balustrade, then it is better to give preference to the frameless design. Such a design does not imply the use of many visible fasteners. Thus, there are two types of frameless pool glass balustrades:
- Glass button balustrades. The installers use elegant and modern glass adapters to install these balustrades.
- Glass balustrades with base shoe channel. It is necessary to use special profile systems to fix these balustrades. When the floor fine finish is ready, it is almost impossible to notice any fittings.
Since the frameless toughened glass balustrade panels are completely translucent, they do not inferior with a wide view whether you are inside or outside the pool. At the same time, due to the use of a particularly strong architectural glass, these fence systems are resistant to heavy loads.
Framed Glass Fencing
However, a possibility to install a frameless pool glass balustrade is not always available. So, here the balustrades with stainless steel posts will come to the rescue. Due to the availability of the posts of different dimensions and shapes and the variety of glass clamp holders, you can get a countless number of design options for such fences.
For example, if you choose mini posts, the fences will still have some noticeable, but very compact fasteners. Moreover, it is even possible to turn them into the stylish exterior decor elements. The height of mini posts usually varies from 100 mm to 150 mm. The installers fix the glass to these posts using the threaded fasteners. For decorative purposes, the shape of mini posts can be non-standard. Also, their surface is often polished which makes it beautifully shine.
A possibility to use mini posts is limited by the size and weight of the glass panels. So, for the cases, where mini posts cannot provide secure fixation of too large glass panels, the classic posts are suitable. They can be round and square, as well as feature different glass fastening systems. Though these posts do not give the effect of full transparency of the exterior glass balustrade, such a glass construction looks contemporary and can become even a kind of decoration for the backyard.
Professional Production and Installation
The pool glass panel balustrade systems are functional, reliable, and safe regardless of the fastening method or design. However, this statement is valid only in the case when the production and installation of such a pool glass balustrade meet all the standards in this realm. The installers should perform installation works professionally, taking into account all the individual characteristics of a certain facility. That is why it is advisable to entrust installation to the specialists with a huge work experience, who know which solution will be the most suitable in each particular case and who have necessary skills to bring it to life.
