Glass Pool Fence Gates
Premium Glass Pool Fence Gates
While including glass gates to your frameless or semi-frameless glass pool fence is thought of as an essential item, there are actually a lot of possibilities that you can decide on. It may be wise to think about the measurements of the gate, the weight, the position, the way the gate opens and the types of hinges you want to use.
The regular sizes that most glass pool fences can accommodate can be found in widths of 750mm, 834mm and 890mm. These are for a conventional 8mm thickness toughened glass gate with spring loaded self-closing hinges. Self-closing hinges are needed by legislation to ensure that your pool fence gate will shut automatically– because safety is key, and you don’t want to risk anybody inadvertently getting into the pool. It is conceivable to have a larger gate fitted with spring loaded hinges however we have identified that the ‘sail area’ of the gate can restrict how well it closes. ‘Sail area’ means that the gate can catch the wind and also act as a sail with the wind, which means that these forces work against it’s ability to close sometimes and can cause issues.
If you are searching for a better sort of hinge for your glass gates, we strongly recommend checking out soft-close hinges. Whilst the conventional spring loaded hinges suffice for pool safety compliance there is another product on offer that enables a much softer close and eliminates almost any latching sound that you get with spring loaded hinges. This sort of hinge is a quality product and makes it possible for us to use a slightly more thick glass gate that will fit the frameless panels at 12mm thick.
Not only does the soft self-closing hinge practically eliminate any noise when closing and enables thickness matching of the glass panels on a frameless system, but it also makes it possible for us to create and custom manufacture a gate that is just a little wider than standard. This is needless to say within reason, but we have typically found glass gates up to 1000mm wide will still close gently with a premium soft close hinge. As the glass cut-outs for this hinge are also different to the common hinge cut-outs we can see to it that the glass suits the opening perfectly.
Because we aspire to deliver the most ideal quality at affordable prices, we actually offer a superb deal for these kinds of hinges. As the charge of these hinges is usually a lot more than what customers plan, here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems we in fact only charge our clients our cost price when invoicing. Through this we can ensure the customer has easy access to a high quality product while still keeping to a budget.
