Framelss Glass Fencing - Spigots

Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence Mounted on Spigots

There are a lot of types of pool fencing on the market today and so we decided that we should attempt to explain precisely what these systems are and how they work. This is extremely important to us that each and every client understands their choices, and chooses the style that best suits their demands. Several of the factors which we are going to need to take note of are: pool safety compliance, building code compliance, visual appeals, the requirement to suit an existing system, the immediate environment, and certainly, the budget.

Among our more in demand choices is the fully frameless glass pool fence system. It is a fully frameless glass system containing glass panels, supported on top of small metal posts called ‘spigots’. Generally it will be composed of 12mm thick toughened glass panels, while the spigots are a small post that could be either inserted into the ground or prepared with a ‘heavy duty’ rapid-set cement. This is normally done when the glass panels will be installed on a stable concrete base. One option that helps make this glass pool fence extremely versatile is the alternative for the spigots to be installed to a timber deck. This will obviously depend upon the quality of the deck, and whether or not it is properly prepared with enough joist timber to fix through the decking.

The glass sits in these spigots and supports the panel, which can weigh anything up to 80kg. Because of the weight of these glass panels it is extremely important that the ground they are being set on is solid with little or no possibility of movement or slippage for the lifetime of the fence. There can be some adjustment tolerances possible, but ultimately that will contribute to your maintenance time on the fence. However, if carried out the right way from the beginning then the fence ought to be maintenance free – except for a little cleaning.

For glass pool fencing especially, there are stringent rules controlling to the spacing between the panels and also 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 always recommend getting a professional installer to install the glass, especially on the Gold Coast given that all pool fences must be passed by a Pool Safety Inspector.

The final product will be panels of glass that appear to be floating above the ground except of course for the two spigots. This style of pool fencing has become incredibly popular over the last decade due to the accessibility of the toughened glass on the market. So, the name really does say it all; a frameless glass fence.
