Drowning and the importance of Gold Coast Pool Safety.

Climb points and pool dangers – how to have a risk-free Frameless Glass Pool Fence

Climb Points are a common problem with any type of pool fence, even Frameless glass pool fences. They are without a doubt an astonishing investment to any swimming pool, but you really want to ensure that you are getting a great price while not compromising safety and security.

At Absolut Custom Glass, one of the persisting issues we see on the Gold Coast is that people have ‘climb points’ near where the pool fence must go. Just why is this a challenge? Well if you want to get your Gold Coast Pool Fence certified (by the way, you legally have to) you need to ensure there are no climbing points. If you are worried about any of these things, you can find out more about it on the QLD government website or if you have any concerns you can call us on 1300 937 902 or discover more on our website

So, what is a ‘climb point’? These are typically things like Tap fittings, garden beds, as well as sections of the house. But at Absolut Custom Glass, we are used to fixing this problem with Frameless Glass Pool Fences, and so we use what is known as ‘polycarbonate’ to remove the climbing hazard. This is done by producing a special cover made from polycarbonate that fits over the tap. If it has an angle on it more than 60 degrees then it cannot be used as a climbing point. This is significant because we know that removing external tap-fittings may not always be an option.

We use polycarbonate for this aspect of our Pool Fences on the Gold Coast due to the fact that it is a far more durable product and will not fade like the previous types of Perspex. So, you can rest assured that in years to come the polycarbonate mouldings that we advise will still look like new and remain crystal clear.

And remember, these rules apply to everybody. So even if you don’t have small children, these ‘climb points’ still must be fixed. It is a very strict rule, and one that we encourage you to take seriously.

So if you are in the Gold Coast and are looking at a Frameless Glass Pool Fence, we recommend you to be familiar with the areas around your pool– and make sure that when you pool fence is put in you consider those potential climb points.
