By obtaining a free consultation or quote, you can be assured that your glass pool fence will be exactly how you imagined it. During this stage, we take a close look at your poolside area to determine optimal layout and necessary materials. For example, we need to consider waterproof membranes, timber supports, tiling, concrete, concrete rebates, core drilling and more. It’s far better to have a clear plan in place than to get to the end of the job only to discover preventable damage or something not quite right, leading to further remedial work and potentially extra expense. Save the hassle and get a clearer picture, call us now and we’ll take you through our range and create a custom solution to suit YOU.

  1. Cleaning is a Breeze

All pool fencing will start to look shabby if it is neglected, but glass pool fences can be cleaned quickly and easily with hot soapy water and a cloth. You can also help to protect the glass by using a liquid wax coating, similar to what you would use on your car, which will help to reduce the amount of debris and bird droppings sticking to your glass. If you want your pool fence to look its best all year round, you should try to clean on a monthly basis.

  1. Minimum Pool Fence Height in NSW

Pool fences surrounding NSW pools must be at least 1200mm from ground level, and the gap from the bottom of the fence cannot be more than 100mm.

Keep in mind that some factors can impact fence height. If you have any protrusions, you will need to either remove them or add additional height to your pool fence. Adding height to your fence can increase safety whilst also providing protection from the wind. Keep in mind that older children and teenagers may still be able to climb a pool fence. It is important that all pool users have a strong understanding of pool safety.
