Glass Fencing - Patch Fittings

Glass fencing with patch fittings

With so many different types of glass pool fencing on the market we came to a decision to try and give you a clear explanation of every single type. This article will explain exactly what a patch fitting system is and whether it is suitable for you. Certainly there are many factors that come into play when selecting what sort of glass pool fence to buy, for instance, the immediate surrounding, if the system needs to match something that is existing, personal taste, and obviously, budget.

A patch fitted frameless glass fence system employs either a 10mm or 12mm thick toughened glass panels suspended by small metal clamps that hold the glass in position. These clamps are referred to as ‘patches’ in the industry, and this produces an illusion that the glass is simply floating in between a pair of posts, only held up by these four clamps.

The glass is often most likely to be either 10mm or 12mm thick, the deciding factor comes down to the gap that the glass has to span in between the posts. There are generally specific rules that vary from one state to another and that is why we recommend using a professional installer. Importantly one that understands the regulations from your local area and can make certain that your pool fence or balustrade will pass the important inspection for compliance.

These systems have the tendency to be a good choice when your home already has a few existing posts and the ground may not be a solid concrete base– this option gives additional support to make it a safer system. An example is a patio or veranda with a roof that is actually supported by posts and the floor may be a slightly older timber deck or paved on top of a gravel foundation. A frameless glass panel that is mounted on spigots may not be among the most suitable application for this sort of ground so the next best thing is for a patch fitted frameless system. The glass is still what we would call a frameless system, as the glass is not actually set into any posts, but is suspended by the four little patches, two on either side.

A frameless glass patch fitted system might be the one that is best suited to your glass pool fence in the Gold Coast. But you always have the option to integrate this particular style with another, and also a distinct choice in glass colours. We can suggest the system, or systems that best suits you and your budget.
