Framelss Glass Fencing - Spigots

Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence Mounted on Spigots

There are many types of pool fencing on the marketplace today therefore we made a decision that we need to try to explain just what these systems are and also how they work. It really is very important to us that every single customer understands their choices, and selects the style that best suits their needs. Some of the factors which we will need to think about are: pool safety compliance, building code compliance, appearances, the requirement to suit an existing system, the adjacent environment, and ultimately, the budget.

Among our more preferred choices is the fully frameless glass pool fence system. It is a fully frameless glass system consisting of glass panels, supported on top of small metal posts called ‘spigots’. Usually it will be composed of 12mm thick toughened glass panels, while the spigots are a small post that can be either inserted into the ground or prepared with a ‘heavy duty’ rapid-set concrete. This is usually done when the glass panels will be installed on a strong concrete base. One choice that helps make this glass pool fence extremely versatile is the alternative for the spigots to be installed to a timber deck. This will obviously depend on the quality of the deck, and if it is properly prepared with enough joist timber to fix through the decking.

The glass sits in these spigots and supports the panel, which can weigh anything up to 80kg. A result of the weight of these glass panels it is rather important that the ground they are being set on is solid with little or no chance of motion or slippage for the lifetime of the fence. There might be some adjustment tolerances possible, but ultimately that will contribute to your maintenance time on the fence. However, if done properly from the beginning then the fence ought to be maintenance free – besides a little cleaning.

For glass pool fencing particularly, there are tight rules controlling to the spacing in between the panels as well as the distance from the ground to the bottom of the glass, and the distance from the glass panel to the side of a structure. These rules are rather specific which is why we always recommend getting a professional installer to install the glass, especially on the Gold Coast given that all pool fences must be passed by a Pool Safety Inspector.

The final product will be panels of glass that appear to be floating above the ground except of course for the two spigots. This style of pool fencing has become very popular over the last decade as a result of the accessibility of the toughened glass on the market. So, the name really does say it all; a frameless glass fence.
