The Safety & Durability
A glass pool fencing system can be installed in your home, but many homeowners especially the ones with children shy away from having it installed in their homes, because they think it is highly prone to breakage. This is not true because a glass Pool Fencing Melbourne is actually made from tempered glass which cannot break easily. The glass is usually from 8-12mm in thickness and most fences companies recommend the 12mm glass as the ideal choice for complete strength, in order to rule out any chances of breakage. Homeowners can also feel safer with their children because they can’t climb up the slippery glass.
Glass Pool Fencing Types
There are usually two major types of fences available and they are:
Frameless Glass Fencing
Semi-frameless glass Fencing
The frameless glass simply contains a series of panels secured in place by ground-mounted brackets known as spigots; the semi-frameless fencing contains the panels that are separated and secured in place by posts. Many companies recommend using the semi-frameless fencing for areas with high wind to prevent the glass panels from swaying and becoming loose.
