Glass Fencing - Patch Fittings

Glass fencing with patch fittings

With a lot of different styles of glass pool fencing on the market we made a choice to try and present you a clear description of every single type. This article will explain just what a patch fitting system is and whether it is suited for you. Certainly there are many variables that come into play when deciding on what type of glass pool fence to buy, such as the immediate surroundings, if the system needs to match something that is existing, own personal taste, and needless to say, budget.

A patch fitted frameless glass fence system makes use of either a 10mm or 12mm thick toughened glass panels suspended by minimal metal clamps that hold the glass in position. These brackets are referred to as ‘patches’ in the industry, and this creates an illusion that the glass is actually floating in between a couple of posts, only held up by these four clamps.

The glass is often going to be either 10mm or 12mm thick, the deciding factor comes down to the gap that the glass has to span between the posts. There are certainly specific rules that vary from state to state and that is why we suggest using a professional installer. Importantly one that understands the regulations from your area and can make certain that your pool fence or balustrade will definitely pass the required inspection for compliance.

These systems often tend to be a good choice when your home currently has some existing posts and the ground may not be a solid concrete base– this option gives extra support to make it a safer system. A good example is a patio or verandah with a roof that is actually supported by posts and the floor may be a slightly older timber deck or paved on top of a gravel foundation. A frameless glass panel that is mounted on spigots may not be among the most suitable application for this type of ground so the second best thing is for a patch fitted frameless system. The glass is still what we would call a frameless system, as the glass is not actually set into any posts, but is suspended by the four small patches, two on either side.

A frameless glass patch fitted system might be the one that is best suited to your glass pool fence in the Gold Coast. But you always have the choice to integrate this style with another, as well as a distinct choice in glass colours. We can recommend the system, or systems that is best suited to you and your budget. With new patch fittings that have been engineered and coming on to the market place, make sure that you do your research so you can get the system that is pleasing to the eye and does not compromise on safety and security.
