If you have decided to install a glass pool fence around your home’s swimming pool, and have conducted some research on the topic, you will realise there are a couple of options to choose from such as framed or frameless pool fencing. Since both of these look stunning and provide good levels of safety, you may find it a little difficult to determine which one best suits your requirements.
Here, we have outlined the primary differences between these two types of glass pool fencing features, to help you make a more well-informed decision.
Frameless glass fencing
Most homeowners now prefer this option, as it creates an illusion of there being no barrier in the space at all. The fence has panes of toughened glass that are held in place with glass spigots fitted in the ground or base. We will fit the glass panes in spigots drilled into the surfaces or cemented into the ground. There may or may not be narrow gaps between adjoining panes of the structure.
Framed glass fencing
This is the conventional glass fencing with standard panes held in place by SS posts that are embedded deep into the base. Often times, the posts/framed are installed first and the panels are then slid in place. The entire feature will be secured with the top bar. While you still get quite a clear view from within and outside the enclosed areas, the framework does become a slight obstruction.
Which style of glass fencing should you choose?
This isn’t an easy question to answer, because both these types of fences are extremely resilient and long-lasting. While the cost of frameless glass fencing is slightly higher than its framed counterpart, the price difference isn’t so vast. Both these features look great and are value for money. Most times, this decision comes down to personal preferences and style choices. Some homeowners prefer the minimalist styling that the frameless style offers and it is the closest they can get to not installing pool fencing at all. However, some property owners prefer the framed features.
Consider semi-framed glass fences
If you’re still torn between these two options, why not choose the best of both worlds? We offer excellent semi-framed glass fencing solutions, in which the glass panes are slid into vertical stainless steel frames, but the bottom and top of the feature don’t have any framing. The structure doesn’t have any gaps between the panes, which makes it perfect for homes with kids or pets. In addition, the semi-framed structure opens up the view very well. The pricing is similar to fully-framed and frameless fence costs.
