Once your swimming pool is in place and you have completed installing the landscape, you would need to decide which type of pool fencing would work best for your property. Today, there are a large number of material options on the market to choose from. For instance, many people get aluminium or wooden fencing installed on their residential property.
You also have the option to get wrought iron, vinyl or composite fencing installed. However, homeowners are increasingly considering features such as glass pool fencing. When there is mention about features made of glass, one of the first things that crops up in your mind is about the strength of these installations. After all, glass is considered to be a very fragile material and needs to be handled with care.
Why Choose a Glass Pool Fence?
However, glassmaking technology has advanced significantly over the years. Today glass pool fences are made using toughened and laminated glass panels. These are extremely resilient and sturdy and can withstand the elements. When you opt for a pool fence made of glass there are a number of advantages to it such as:
#1 Design flexibility
Every property owner has very distinctive tastes and preferences when it comes to designing their yard spaces. This makes it important to choose materials that can give you the flexibility to create the look and styling you want. A frameless glass pool fence looks stunning without overwhelming the space. Glass has a classic appeal and can complement the styling of different types of landscapes and building structures.
Whether you have a Victorian style villa or a modernistic, single family home, you can rest assured that a glass pool fence would fit in perfectly into your landscape. You can choose from framed, semi-frameless, or even frameless glass fences, based on your specific preferences. This allows you to create the look you want on your property.
Since your pool fence will be exposed to the weather, you would need to make sure that the materials used will not deteriorate with exposure to the elements or the chlorine water conditions in its immediate vicinity. Glass is able to stand up very well to climatic changes.
In fact, it is also a very good option for coastal properties as well. You don’t have to worry that it will rust or rot like metal or wood. A glass fence is also termite and fungus-resistant, making it ideal for outdoor installations such as pool fencing.
#3 Low Maintenance
Glass is a very low maintenance material. All it needs is an occasional clean with a diluted soap water solution. You don’t have to worry about applications such as polish, rust-proof coating, varnish, paints etc. Not only does this reduce the amount of time you spend on maintaining the feature, but also reduces your ongoing maintenance costs.
The Safety Aspect
In addition to all these benefits, glass pool fences also add a very open and spacious look to your yard. They give you a clear view of the yard spaces without compromising on the safety aspect. In fact, if you have kids or pets in your house, a glass pool fence is a great addition to your yard. Your children or pets wouldn’t be able to scramble over the smooth glass panels which means it significantly increases the safety aspect of your landscape.
