Semi-Frameless and Frameless Glass Pool Fencing Explained
Author:SN Fencing, Date: December 15, 2017

At SN Fencing in Melbourne, our glass pool fencing comes in two types:

  1. Semi Frameless Glass
  2. Frameless Glass

There is no doubt that both types of glass fencing look stunning, but what are the main differences between the two?

Let’s find out.

Semi Frameless Glass Fencing

Semi frameless glass is the more affordable option of the two. It’s a really beautiful way to secure your pool area, rendering it safe without obstructing visibility. For those who desire glass pool fencing on more of a budget, semi frameless glass fencing is definitely the way to go.

The main difference between this type of glass fencing and frameless are the heavy duty aluminium posts that support and separate the glass panels. Each glass panel is made from toughened glass that is a minimum of 8mm thick.

Glass panels are perfectly safe. They are shatterproof and can withstand high impact situations. The actual design of the glass is crafted in such a way, that if a panel does happen to break, the glass comes apart in harmless cubes much like a car windscreen.

Enjoy unimpeded views both inside and outside your pool with semi frameless glass pool fencing. As there is no frame or hand rail along the top edge, semi frameless glass blends seamlessly with all styles of landscaping and pool enclosures.

Frameless Glass Fencing

Frameless glass pool fencing is the ultimate in style, sophistication and class for your pool area. With frameless glass fencing there are no aluminium support posts; just clear, unobstructed views of your stunning swimming pool. In fact, with frameless glass pool fencing you’ll barely even know there is a fence there.

You’ve spent thousands of dollars having a beautiful pool built, including gorgeous landscaping. Don’t hide it all behind a Colorbond or aluminium fence. Show it off in all its glory with frameless glass fencing.

Frameless glass is more expensive than its semi frameless cousin, but it’s well worth it for the view. A frameless glass pool fence will become an integral and natural looking part of the surrounding landscape.

Each glass panel is secured to the ground by stainless steel spigots. Again, panels are made from the highest quality toughened glass and meet all Australian safety standards for pool fencing.

The Takeaway

Whichever option you decide to choose, the results are sure to look magnificent. There is no more natural and more attractive looking pool fencing than one made of frameless or semi frameless glass.
