Things to Take Care Of During Glass Pool Fencing Installations

by Taylor Smith Helping Fence in Australia
Getting glass pool fencing installed in your backyard or property is not an easy thing and there are a number of things that needs consideration. The first thing is hiring a competent installation team and secondly, in whatever region of Australia you are, you follow the rules and laws related to pool fencing. 

This is something very important and has to be kept in mind because Australian laws say that getting pool fencing done is mandatory in this country. Other than all these, there are a number of things to take care of and in this post; we have discussed the most crucial ones.

Thickness of the Panels

•   In terms of glass pool fencing installations, the most important thing to note is the thickness of the glass proposed to be installed.
•   In most cases, you will find installation experts coming with panels that has the thickness between 6mm and 12mm, but these panels could be up to 18 mm wide. 
•   This means that you can request the team to install anything that is either 6mm thick or up to 18mm. 
•   However, the normal tendency of mostly companies in Australia is to propose panels that are 10 or 12 mm thick, but this happens in terms of semi-frameless version.
•   In totally frameless glass pool fencing installations, you will find these companies using panels that are 12-18 mm in thickness.
•   It is highly recommended that 6-8 mm wide panels should not be used specially, if you have kids or pets at home because they are not robust enough to withstand pressure or load.
•   The bottom line is that the thicker the glass panels, the less the chances of them shattering in windy or stormy weather.

The height & the width of the pool fence panels

•   According to those offering glass pool fencing services, other than the width of the panels, it is very important that the height of the panels is also considered.
•   Experts say that the ideal height of glass pool fencing according to Australian standards is 1200 millimetres, but the height can be increased as per your specifications.
•   They further say that based on your specific preferences and design requirement, there can be a variation in the width of the panels. 
•   Semi-frameless glass pool fence panels are 1600mm-1800mm wide and in the frameless installations, they may be 1800mm-1900mm wide.
Australian Standards
•   These engaged in glass pool fencing manufacturing say that not by any chance; you should miss compiling with the Australian Government’s standards.
•   This means that the panels used should have the Conformity Mark of Australian Standards. 
•   Other than this, the panels should be made using the latest technology and equipment.
•   Other than this, they should meet the very strict criteria and quality standards.
•   This means that they should be made using high-grade materials increases the longevity of the installation.

Other than all the things to be taken care while getting glass pool fencing installation done are – 
•   They should use really high-quality spigots
•   They should be able to use custom glass panels
•   You should only contact the glass fencing experts
