Glass Pool Fence Gates
Premium Glass Pool Fence Gates
While including a glass gate to your frameless or semi-frameless glass pool fence is considered an essential item, there are generally a number of possibilities that you can choose from. It may be wise to take into consideration the measurements of the gate, the how heavy you want the gate to be, the positioning, the way it opens and the kinds of hinges you wish to consider.
The normal sizes that most glass pool fences can accommodate come in widths of 750mm, 834mm and 890mm. These are for a typical 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 close automatically– because safety is key, and you don’t want to risk anyone inadvertently getting into the pool. It is conceivable to have a bigger gate fitted with spring loaded hinges however we have discovered that the ‘sail area’ of the gate can obstruct how well it closes. That means that the gate can catch the wind and even act as a sail with the wind, which means that these forces work against it’s ability to close sometimes and can cause difficulties.
If you are hunting for a better kind of hinge for your pool fence gate, we strongly recommend checking out soft-close hinges. Whilst the standard spring loaded hinges suffice for pool safety compliance there is another product on offer that permits a much softer close and eliminates practically any latching sound that you get with spring loaded hinges. This style of hinge is a superior product and enables us to use a slightly thicker glass gate that will fit the frameless panels at 12mm thick.
Not only does the soft self-closing hinge practically eliminate any sound when closing up and enables thickness matching of the glass panels on a frameless system, but it also allows us to create and custom manufacture a gate that is a little wider than standard. This is of course within reason, but we have generally found 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 unique to the typical hinge cut-outs we can see to it that the glass suits the opening nicely.
Because we intend to deliver the most ideal quality at affordable prices, we in fact offer a very good deal for these kinds of hinges. As the price of these hinges is usually a lot more than what clients plan, here at Absolut Custom Glass Systems we actually only charge our clients our cost price when invoicing.
