Semi-Frameless Glass Fencing - 3/4 Post
3/4 Post Semi-Frameless Glass Fencing
Figuring out your choices before you decide on a Custom Glass Pool Fence option in the Gold Coast is extremely important. One of these choices is the Semi-Frameless Glass pool fence with 3/4 Posts.
So what does this choice include? This choice means mounting a swimming pool fence that consists of glass panels that have shorter posts to support the panels. The posts only have to be 90cm away from the ground whilst the height of the glass still meets pool fence laws at 1.2 M high. The glass is the same as a full post system, that is, 10mm thickness and toughened.
This system is quite similar to a full post semi-frameless system apart from that the posts only run up to 90cm above the ground instead of 120cm. The risk of this is that if it is too shortened, then you might not be compliant considering that there is a possibility that an undersized post could be climbed up on. That is why we set the level of this post at 90cm– this is sufficient for almost every pool fence regulation. At this height above the ground, this gets rid of that risk, and the Gold Coast Council will not view it as a climbing point, so it is actually compliant.
The glass extends another 30cm above the post and is actually still set right into the side of it using a wet or dry glazing method. Wet glazing merely means the glass is actually set into the post with a specific sort of silicone and dry glazing means that a rubber insert is usually used to wedge the glass in safely. Both kinds of wet and dry glazing supply the same security with the glass, it just depends a lot on the immediate environment as to just what glazing method is actually used.
Whether you want to use a three-quarter post system or a full post system comes down to aesthetic appeals. It is a personal choice that both offers the same safety requirements as any good pool fence. That is why it is critical that you let us know when we are quoting your job in the Gold Coast as to just what size post you would want. The glass will usually have a bit more flex with a three-quarter post that a full-size post, but the difference is low. Of course, this method could be combined with other types of glass pool fencing depending on your budget and what you find more pleasing to the eye.
