Cleaning and maintaining glass pool fencing
Author:SN Fencing, Date: September 17, 2016

Frameless glass and semi frameless glass pool fencing are a popular choice in pool fencing as it provides a safe, secure and durable pool fence with uninterruptable views. You may think that glass pool fencing would require a glass cleaner to clean it but that’s not the case.

Glass pool fencing panels are panels of toughened glass, designed to withstand wind and impact.  Although these panels are strong, they do need to be cleaned regularly and maintained to prolong their finish and structural integrity.

Here, SN Fencing, Melbourne, share some tips on how to clean and maintain your glass pool fencing:

Glass panels

To clean any dirty glass pool fencing panels, use warm soapy water and a soft microfiber cloth to clean them. Household dishwashing liquid provides a good soapy solution.  Thoroughly clean the panel and then rinse the glass panel well with the hose. Remove any excess water with a squeegee and lastly wipe with a dry microfiber cloth to reduce any spotting and streaking.

If the panels aren’t that dirty, wiping over the panels with just warm water and a microfiber cloth with suffice.

Metal frames

Frameless glass pool fencing panels are held in place by small spigots that can be made of stainless steel or powder coated aluminium. If the frames are quite dirty, a solution of warm soapy water to clean off any chemicals from the pool water will work well.  Rinse off the soapy solution with the hose and wipe dry with a microfiber cloth.

Avoid using strong chemicals or abrasive cleaners which will damage the finish of the frames. If the frames are fairly clean to start with, warm water and a microfiber cloth can be used to give them a wipe over.


SN Fencing don’t recommend the use of household glass cleaner as it will likely result in smears across the glass panels due to the residue it can leave.

With regular cleaning and maintenance of your glass pool fencing, it will maintain its aesthetic qualities and you will be able to expect many, many years of durability.
