Gold Coast Pool Fencing Record! Meet the Highest residential pool fence here in Australia!


When it involves Frameless Glass Pool fencing on the Gold Coast, many people think of a few small panels around the time-honoured backyard pool. But no more! Absolut Custom Glass Systems associated with the creation of the Q1’s Penthouse Pool– on the top floor of the Iconic Gold Coast building. This Frameless glass pool fence is now the tallest residential pool fence in all of Australia. Absolut Custom Glass Systems were excited to have been brought in on the venture and were glad to be part of such an awesome structure.

So what did it take?

It being the penthouse, luxury was of course essential. That meant that we went along with the Frameless Glass Pool Fence option– amazingly uninterrupted views that let the pool blend seamlessly with the rest of the penthouse for a five star feel.

Obviously, only toughened clear glass would suit such a spectacular penthouse with a view to match that is the envy of people all around the world. The client insisted that we only use marine grade stainless steel fittings, that wasn’t an issue as we use that on all our glass pool fence installations in the Gold Coast. It was also asked that we use hydraulic soft close hinges, these are a high-end item that guarantee longevity and a super quiet self-closing mechanism. Hinges on pool fences are obligated by law to be self-closing, and although our basic spring loaded stainless steel hinges suffice, the hydraulic ones are fantastic and do it all quietly– so if you are on the Gold Coast looking for a Glass pool fence– consider the hydraulic hinge option for an extra dash of class.


The tricky element of this job was getting the staff to stay prioritized the job at hand, with such an astounding view is was easy to become distracted. It was such a legendary part of the Gold Coast we felt honoured just to be involved. There was a soothing appeal to the room, and you often would end up gazing out over the kilometres of Gold Coast beach front and ocean facing you. Luckily, we had a fantastic team on the job and we were completed by lunch time, with as little disturbance as possible to the penthouses management. The owner services division were incredibly helpful and ensured that we had great access and use of the trade elevator so we could transfer the glass all the way to the 74th level.

I feel that this job is significant– not just because it was for such a superb Gold Coast Symbol, but because it stands as a bit of a unique statement. Back even as little as Ten Years ago, when we started our Glass Pool Fence company the majority of our jobs installing Custom Frameless Glass Pool Fencing were for these 5-star penthouse style homes. It was genuinely only for the richest people on the Gold Coast. Today, the overwhelming quantity of our jobs are for your regular people– it is more cost effective than ever and it gives each and every home an additional touch of elegance that certainly is an accurate statement about the Gold Coast.
