If you have a pool on your residential property or have commissioned one, you know that a pool fence is one installation you can’t do without. A safety fence is not only important from a safety perspective but is a legal requirement for these features too. Traditionally, pool fences were made using steel rods or metal grillwork or even aluminium rods and sheets. But they all have certain drawbacks when it comes to pool settings especially in coastal areas.
Why opt for glass fencing?
Metal fences are opaque and hamper the view of the pool. On the other hand, when you opt for glass fences, you can easily keep an eye on the kids without actually having to be by the pool.
Glass panels have smooth surfaces and kids and pets can’t clamber over glass pool fencing from the yard areas, making these features a very safe option. But there are some other distinct reasons that make glass pool fencing the perfect solution for coastal areas such as:
#1 No worry about rusting or rotting
Metal fencing is more prone to corrosion and rust, especially in pool settings or in areas near the sea. The salty sea air and moisture in the environment take their toll and eventually you will find a rust build-up on your metal fencing.
Wood is a good option, but it too deteriorates over time and can develop rot or become affected by termite or fungal infestations. In comparison, frameless glass fencing is suitable for these applications. The glass won’t warp, rot or corrode and will last for a number of years without too much trouble.
#2 Ease of maintenance
Glass is very easy to maintain and all it needs is an occasional clean with mild soapy water or a hose down. When you compare this to wood that needs regular sanding and painting, glass fences become a great choice. Metal too needs regular sanding to remove the corrosion and rust and will have to be painted after applying a rust-proof base coat.
#3 Offers perfect windbreak without obstructing the view
Coastal areas can be quite windy and glass proves to be the perfect windbreaker with no compromise on the view. It also allows natural light and warmth to filter through. This can be beneficial to the plantings and grass growing adjacent to the fence. On the other hand, if you have a wooden or metal fence, it will prevent this from happening.
