Why Glass Fencing Works Best Around Water

Glass fencing is the preferred choice in residential and commercial outdoor settings. They can be installed along the periphery of decks and patios, gardens and lawn spaces, outdoor kitchens as well as poolscapes.

Glass is an extremely resilient material that looks elegant, complements the look of any other materials and syncs well with various architectural styles. This is why it has now become the number 1 choice for fencing installations. It’s common to see glass fences around pools, ponds, waterfalls and other water features, and there are some distinct reasons for this:

#1 Safety

Water features on your property add a very fresh and attractive look to the landscape and many people have swimming pools, ponds etc. on their property. While these features are functional and enhance the appearance of your landscape, it’s important to have a security installation like a fence around them. This is even more relevant if you have kids or pets in your home.

While a fence is a necessary feature in these areas, building one made of wood or metal can mar the appearance of your landscape. It’s far better to install semi-framed or frameless glass fencing. This will provide the safety you need, without compromising on the aesthetic factor.

#2 Non-Corrosive

Any fencing in an outdoor location will be exposed to the elements. When it is close to any water body that can cause it to rot or corrode in the manner that wood and metal do. But this isn’t the case with glass fencing. These installations are largely made of glass panels. Depending on whether you have opted for a semi-framed or a frameless installation, there will be some hardware used to fit the fencing to the ground.

A reputed glass fencing company will always use high-grade stainless steel fittings. Neither the glass nor these fittings are prone to rusting or corrosion which makes the installation perfect for poolscapes, or even any coastal locations. This means you will have installations that perform well even in high-chloride and marine environments, which provides you value in the long term.

#3 Aesthetics and Design Flexibility

As mentioned earlier, glass lends itself very well to different design concepts. Since it is transparent, it blends in well with various settings. Regardless of whether you have a formal-styled or casual tropical-style pool on your property, a frameless glass fence will look stunning and enhance the appearance and value of your property. You get the design flexibility to create the look you want, without worrying about whether the material of the fencing will clash with the other materials used in the landscape.

#4 Buffer Against Coastal Winds

If you live in a coastal region, your property will also be very windy. You can install wood or metal fences as breakers but these also hamper the view. It’s much better to install glass fences; They will provide a buffer against strong winds coming in from the sea, without hindering the fantastic view. You will be able to enjoy leisurely moments on your patio or deck even on a particularly windy day.

#5 Privacy

Some homeowners like privacy around their poolscapes. In this case, you can still use glass fencing but can get it glazed or frosted. This effect provides you the privacy you need and the glass structure still looks very elegant and doesn’t look overly solid like a wooden fence or a metal one.
