Invisible Channel Fix Glass Fencing
Invisible Channel Fixed Frameless Glass Pool Fence
When people search for a glass pool fence on the Gold Coast, they are actually overwhelmed because there are a lot of types of glass pool fencing on the market these days. That is actually why we at Absolut custom glass need to give you some facts that can help you become more well informed and be more pleased with your choice. There are many points to take into account when it comes to deciding on what style of glass fence you want this includes: the surrounding environment, what may be existing already in that area, the place of the fence, and importantly what type of budget you have. In this section, we wish to take you through what we refer to as an ‘invisible channel fix system’. It is a popular option because it makes the glass seem to come straight out of the floor with no need for any other kind of hardware or fixtures.
The glass applied for this sort of work is a 12mm thick toughened panel that is 135cm high and comes in various widths to match all types of fence configurations. This sort of installation achieved the highest degree of aesthetics, and a 5-star ‘ experience’. On the other hand, if you want to achieve this, it requires a little more work in the beginning well before the glass is set. We often have inquiries for this kind of system when your home is being actually built– which means that we have the possibility to liaise with the builder prior to the installation. We can nonetheless install this around existing pools and buildings, but it does need some concrete cutting and substantial planning
For many years, we have perfected our system of this installation and have indeed been using this now for many years. Firstly, a channel is cut into the cement near the fence line. This channel is 10cm deep and approximately 4.5 cm wide. We then lay a special sort of shock absorbing plastic within the channel that we will use to sit the glass on. We next set the glass into the channel, in position and begin to fill the space with a special kind of non-shrinking grout that ultimately will support the glass vertically.
For this type of installation preparation is imperative, and we have so many years of knowledge behind us that we do not make missteps. If errors are made in the planning and setting of the glass panels then it is an expensive and unpleasant job to need to take out panels to re-set them. This is because the glass actually does rise from the ground with an invisible channel system. There is absolutely nothing visible except for the glass panel itself. No spigots, no posts, no gleaming little bits of equipment standing out.
We would say this is one of the most minimalistic look we can accomplish with glass pool fencing, and if that is actually the look you are after then that will be the most reliable choice for you. We still can make sure that the pool fence meets every one of the safety regulations for swimming pool fences and make sure the fence will pass the proper certification. The system we use has been designed and perfected by us and we have certainly not seen anything else on the market that comes close.
So if you are seeking out the ultimate and the very least intrusive look for your pool fence we would suggest the invisible channel system.
