Framelss Glass Fencing - Spigots
Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence Mounted on Spigots
There are many styles of pool fencing on the marketplace today so we decided that we should try to explain clearly what these systems are and also how they work. It really is important to us that every single client understands their options, and selects the style that best fits their needs. Some of the factors that we will definitely need to take into consideration are: pool safety compliance, building code compliance, looks, the need to suit an existing system, the nearby environment, and finally, the budget.
One of our more sought-after choices is generally the fully frameless glass pool fence system. It is a fully frameless glass system containing glass panels, supported on top of small metal posts referred to as ‘spigots’. Generally it will consist of 12mm thick toughened glass panels, while the spigots are a small post that may be either placed into the ground or prepared with a ‘heavy duty’ rapid-set cement. This is actually usually done when the glass panels will be set up on a stable concrete base. One choice that helps make this glass pool fence extremely flexible is the option for the spigots to be mounted to a timber deck. This will of course depend on the quality of the deck, and if it is properly prepared with ample joist timber to fix through the decking.
The glass sits in these spigots and supports the panel, which can weigh anything up to 80kg. A result of the weight of these glass panels it is rather important that the ground they are actually being set on is solid with little or no prospect of movement or slippage for the lifetime of the fence. There could be some adjustment tolerances possible, but essentially that will enhance your maintenance time on the fence. However, if carried out correctly from the beginning then the fence ought to be maintenance free – with the exception of a little cleaning.
For glass pool fencing especially, there are particular rules controlling to the spacing between the panels as well as the distance from the ground to the bottom of the glass, and the distance from the glass panel to the side of a structure. These rules are quite specific and that is why we constantly recommend getting a professional installer to install the glass, especially on the Gold Coast due to the fact that all pool fences must be passed by a Pool Safety Inspector.
The finished product will be panels of glass that look to be floating in the air except of course for the two spigots. This style of pool fencing has become well-known over the past decade as a result of the accessibility of the toughened glass on the market. So, the name really does say it all; a frameless glass fence.
