What is glass pool fencing?
Glass pool fencing is constructed from solid panels of thick safety glass instead of the tradition aluminium pool fencing. With glass pool fencing there is the option of posts to connect and secure these panels in place or you can opt for the growing trend of frameless glass pool fencing.
Glass pool fencing is a great alternative to the ‘older style’ aluminium vertical pool fencing most adults grew up with (most of which were restricted to coloured green, beige or even black panels). Now even glass pool fencing in itself has options, mostly as to the colour of the frames, base support but also to the colour and treatment on the glasses. The options available may feel overwhelming at first, but it allows a good solution for all applications and to suit everyone.

There is no doubt that glass pool fencing is the popular choice these days, in fact the ‘choice’ is usually just a choice between framed glass or frameless glass, why is this?

Glass pool fencing allows give you an almost unrestricted view into the pool area from outside it, which can only aid in the safety of all those using the pool area. When in the pool area, glass fencing helps you keep more engaged with those outside the pool as well as give you a spacious relaxing feel aluminium fencing simply can’t do, especially in smaller pool areas.
