Glass Fencing - Patch Fittings

Glass fencing with patch fittings

Patch Fittings is another glass fencing style and with a lot of different designs of glass pool fencing on the market we decided to try and give you a clear description of each and every type. This article will explain just what a patch fitting system is and whether it is suited for you. Generally there are many variables that come into play when selecting what sort of glass pool fence to purchase, including the immediate environment, if the system has to match anything that is existing, personal taste, and naturally, budget.

A patch fitted frameless glass fence system employs either a 10mm or 12mm thick toughened glass panels suspended by little metal clamps that hold the glass in position. These clamps are referred to as ‘patches’ in the industry, and this produces an illusion that the glass is floating in between a couple of posts, only held up by these 4 clamps.

The glass is often going to be either 10mm or 12mm thick, the deciding factor comes down to the gap that the glass needs to span in between the posts. There are certainly specific rules which vary from region to region and that is the reason that we suggest using a professional installer. Importantly one that knows the regulations from your area and can make sure that your pool fence or balustrade will pass the required inspection for compliance.

These systems often tend to be a good choice when your home already has a few existing posts and the ground may not be a strong concrete base– this option gives extra support to make it a safer system. A good example is a patio or verandah with a roof that is actually supported by posts and the floor may be a slightly older timber deck or paved on top of a gravel foundation. A frameless glass panel that is mounted on spigots may not actually be among the most suitable application for this kind of ground so the next best thing is for a patch fitted frameless system.(LINK TO THIS WEBPAGE). The glass is still what we would certainly call a frameless system, as the glass is not set into any posts, but is suspended from the four small patches, two on each side.

A frameless glass patch fitted system could be the one that is best suited to your glass pool fence in the Gold Coast. But you always have the option to combine this particular style with another, as well as a distinct choice in glass colours (LINK TO PAGE). We can recommend the system, or systems that is best suited to you and your budget. With new patch fittings that have been engineered and coming on to the market, see to it that you do your research so you can get the system that is pleasing to the eye and also will not compromise on safety and security.
