Glass Fencing - Patch Fittings
Glass fencing with patch fittings
With many different styles of glass pool fencing on the market we thought to try and offer you a clear explanation of every single type. This article will discuss specifically what a patch fitting system is and whether it is appropriate for you. Generally there are many variables that come into play when picking what type of glass pool fence to buy, for example, the immediate environment, if the system needs to match something that is existing, individual taste, and certainly, budget.
A patch fitted frameless glass fence system makes use of either a 10mm or 12mm thick toughened glass panels suspended by minimal 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 floating between a set of posts, only held up by these 4 clamps.
The glass is often most likely to be either 10mm or 12mm thick, the deciding factor boils down to the space that the glass needs to span in between the posts. There are certainly specific rules that vary from one state to another and that is the reason that we recommend using a professional installer. Importantly one that knows the regulations from your region and can guarantee that your pool fence or balustrade will certainly pass the necessary inspection for compliance.
These systems have the tendency to be a good option when your home already has a few existing posts and the ground may not be a solid concrete base– this choice gives additional support to make it a safer system. A good example is a patio or verandah with a roof that is supported by posts and the ground may be a slightly older timber deck or paved on top of a gravel base. A frameless glass panel that is mounted on spigots may not actually be among the most suitable application for this type of ground so the second best thing is for a patch fitted frameless system.(LINK TO THIS WEBPAGE). The glass is still what we would certainly call a frameless system, as the glass is not actually set into any posts, but is suspended by the four small patches, two on either side.
A frameless glass patch fitted system might be the one that is best fit to your glass pool fence in the Gold Coast.
