You probably think that *any old fence* will be fine around your home, it will keep people out, prevent people from falling off your balcony, staircase or getting into your pool. The good news is, depending on WHERE you plan to use fencing there is nothing as versatile, or as sexy as glass fencing.
There are some great reasons to install glass fencing –
- With glass fencing you get 10mm or 12mm toughened glass panels that are made to Australian standards that can stand up to not only the weather but everyday family use as well. Frameless panels are secured to the ground with sturdy steel blocks, while semi-frameless is connected by vertical posts to give you some extra *peace of mind*
- As we all know – glass is transparent – so even if you opt for semi-frameless you can still enjoy uninterrupted views of your surroundings. This safety barrier is practically invisible so you can still keep an eye on the kids in the pool, or enjoy the views, still with the security that a fence brings you.
- Glass panel fencing is practically maintenance free, all you need to do is give it a wipe over every now and then to keep it looking just like new. Unlike other types of fencing around the home glass won’t rot, fade, discolour or need painting, sanding or scraping – this leaves you free to enjoy your fence all year round, knowing that it’s going to stay looking as good as it did on the day it was installed.
- Glass fencing looks cool, there is nothing as sleek on a summer day than glass surrounding your pool, the sun reflecting off the water, or enjoying drinks on your balcony watching the sun go down. Glass blends in perfectly with its surroundings, so if you need to update your existing fencing – why not get the best you can.
Frameless and semi-frameless fencing is not only impressive, but secure as well. It can make any home look more modern and inviting while still providing safety for your family and guests.
Just because a fence is made from glass, doesn’t mean it is dangerous, flimsy or easily broken. Frameless and semi-frameless glass panels are made from thick, toughened glass with rounded edges. All panels are made to conform with Australian standards – you cannot buy better looking safer glass. If you are concerned about children running or falling through it, or it being damaged in a storm – resulting in shattered glass everywhere, don’t be, glass fencing holds up to just about anything.
Frameless glass fencing IS what it says it is – fencing that doesn’t have a frame. There are no posts that hold the glass in place. The panels are fixed at the bottom with invisible placers. Each panel of glass is lined up with the next one to provide a smooth and seamless looking fence, that has no frame to block your view.
Around your pool glass fencing allows you to look straight into the pool area, you can see where the kids are and what is happening easily, with nothing to block your view. It is a sophisticated and modern way to decorate your pool area and your home, ensuring your home and pool is safe for your family and visitors.

Buyers will love the clean lines, the elegance, the modern and sophisticated look glass brings.
