Reasons to use Glass Pool Fencing

Glass pool fencing gives your pool the much-deserved attention in the spotlight. With no bars to hamper the sight, your pool shines as the centre piece it is meant to be. Frameless glass pool fencing adds extra visibility to see the pool and beyond.

What is glass pool fencing?

Glass pool fencing gives you the safety a pool fence provides without the hampering bars that aluminium pool fencing gives. Framed glass pool fencing has glass panels that are framed in aluminium or stainless steel and secured to posts.

Frameless glass pool fencing is made of 8, 10 or 12 mm safety glass mounted on top of stainless steel or aluminium spigots attached to bars at the bottom. The frameless glass pool fencing is unobtrusive and complies with all safety standards. Self-closing gates with magnetic locks allow access to the pool area without struggling with keys, locks, or latches.

Benefits of Glass Pool Fencing

Frameless glass pool fencing uses frameless glass panels without eye-sore posts that create the illusion that there is no barrier. Let’s look at some of the benefits of frameless glass pool fencing for your home.


Frameless glass pool fencing offers an unobstructed view of the pool area, allowing maximum supervision of kids enjoying their pool time. The glass is a tempered safety glass that complies with all Australian safety standards.

It isn’t easy to climb over, keeping those who should not be in the pool out. A glass pool fence will also withstand harsh weather conditions, as it is strong enough to hold back rough winds and scorching heat.

A good investment

Although frameless glass pool fencing is more expensive to install, the value added to your home is well worth the investment. A major perk is that frameless glass pool fencing has very low maintenance. With correct installation, regular inspections and proper maintenance, your frameless glass pool fencing will live a long and happy life. Glass fence panels are pool chemical resistant, too.

Value-added to your home

The frameless glass pool fence adds both style and aesthetic appeal to your pool area. The transparency of the frameless glass fence adds to the appearance of a larger yard and will not detract from your landscaping, allowing you to enjoy your whole backyard. Frameless glass pool fencing will enhance your entertainment space, and you will be able to enjoy open backyard living to the fullest.


General maintenance for a frameless glass pool fence is minimal. At most, you might want to wipe it down with soapy water occasionally to keep things optimal and clean. Same as your house windows. Spraying down your glass fence panelsafter a long day of swimming pool fun would be advisable.

Frameless Glass Pool Fencing Costs

Frameless glass pool fencing can cost around $275 to $350 per metre. This includes installation by a qualified provider. Framed glass pool fencing starts at $200 on the low end, and top-of-the-range custom frameless glass fences will cost you up to $950 per metre. Pricing is determined by the size of the area as well as the customisation of the project. The less standard the project, the more it will cost.
