The Q1 Pool Fence is the Tallest Holiday property with a pool fence in Australia

The Q1 Pool Fence is an impressive example of Glass pool fences on the Gold Coast, and it is a job that we are proud to have completed! When it comes to Frameless Glass Pool fencing on the Gold Coast, many people think about a few small panels around the time-honored backyard pool. But no more! Absolut Custom Glass Systems involved in the creation of the Q1’s Penthouse Pool– on the top floor of the Iconic Gold Coast building. This Frameless glass pool fence is now the highest residential pool fence in all of Australia. Absolut Custom Glass Systems were pleased to have been brought in on the project and were pleased to be part of such a spectacular structure.

The Q1 Pool Fence:

It being the penthouse, luxury was naturally essential. That meant that we selected the Frameless Glass Pool Fence option– amazingly uninterrupted views that let the pool blend flawlessly with the rest of the penthouse for a five star feel.

Of course, only toughened clear glass would fit such a spectacular penthouse with a view to match that is the envy of people all around the world. The customer insisted that we only use marine grade stainless steel fittings, that wasn’t a challenge as we use that on all our glass pool fence installations in the Gold Coast. It was also requested that we use hydraulic soft close hinges, these are a five star item that guarantee longevity and a super quiet self-closing mechanism. Hinges on pool fences are mandated by law to be self-closing, and although our basic spring loaded stainless steel hinges suffice, the hydraulic ones are fantastic and do it all quietly– so if you are on the Gold Coast trying to find a Glass pool fence– consider the hydraulic hinge possibility for an extra hint of class.

The tricky part about this job was getting the team to stay prioritized the job at hand, with such an astounding view is was easy to become distracted. It was such a famous aspect of the Gold Coast we felt fortunate just to be involved. There was a restful elegance to the room, and you often would find yourself gazing out over the kilometers of Gold Coast coastline and ocean ahead of you. Luckily, we had a great team on the job and we were finished by lunch time, with as little disturbance as possible to the penthouses management. The owner services department were extremely helpful and made sure that we had great access and use of the trade elevator so we could carry the glass all the way to the 74th floor.

I think that this job is vital– not just given that it was for such an amazing Gold Coast Symbol, but because it stands as a bit of a unique statement. Back even as little as 10 years ago, when we started our Glass Pool Fence company most of our jobs installing Custom Frameless Glass Pool Fencing were actually for these 5-star penthouse style homes. It was definitely only for the richest people on the Gold Coast. And now, the overwhelming number of our jobs are for your standard people– it is more cost effective than ever and it gives every home an additional touch of elegance that certainly is an accurate statement about the Gold Coast.

The Q1 pool fence was even covered by Channel 7 News.
