Framelss Glass Fencing - Spigots
Fully Frameless Glass Pool Fence Mounted on Spigots
There are so many styles of pool fencing on the market today and Fully Frameless Spigots is only one of them so therefore we decided that we need to attempt to explain exactly just what these systems are as well as how they work. It really is extremely important to us that every single client understands their options, and chooses the style that best meets their requirements. A number of the factors that we will certainly have to take note of are: pool safety compliance, building code compliance, aesthetics, the need to suit an existing system, the immediate environment, and lastly, the budget.
One of our more popular choices is the Fully Frameless Spigots system. This is a fully frameless glass system consisting of glass panels, supported on top of small metal posts referred to as ‘spigots’. Typically it will include 12mm thick toughened glass panels, while the spigots are a small post that can be either put into the floor or prepared with a ‘heavy duty’ rapid-set concrete. This is actually normally done when the glass panels will be installed on top of a solid concrete base. One choice that makes this glass pool fence extremely versatile is the choice for the spigots to be mounted to a timber deck. This will of course depend on the quality of the deck, and whether or not it is properly prepared with enough joist timber to fix through the decking.
The glass sits in these spigots and supports the panel, which can weigh anything up to 80kg. Because of the weight of these glass panels it is truly important that the ground they are being set on is solid with little or no prospect of motion or slippage for the lifetime of the fence. There could be some adjustment tolerances possible, but ultimately that will contribute to your maintenance time on the fence. However, if performed properly from the beginning then the fence ought to be maintenance free – except for a little cleaning.
For glass pool fencing in particular, there are strict rules controlling to the spacing in between the panels and also the distance from the ground to the bottom of the glass, and the space from the glass panel to the side of a structure. These rules are rather specific and that is why we definitely recommend having a professional installer to install the glass, especially on the Gold Coast given that all pool fences must be passed by a Pool Safety Inspector.
The end product will be panels of glass that seem to be floating in the air except of course for the two spigots. This style of pool fencing has become preferred over the past several years because of the availability of the toughened glass on the market. So, the name really does say it all; a frameless glass fence.
