When it concerns Frameless Glass Pool fencing on the Gold Coast, most people think about a few small panels around the typical backyard pool. But no more! Absolut Custom Glass Systems involved in the creation of the Q1’s Penthouse Pool– on the top floor of the Iconic Gold Coast building. This Q1 pool fence is a Frameless glass pool fence and is now the tallest residential pool fence in all of Australia. Absolut Custom Glass Systems were happy to have been brought in on the job and were happy to be part of such a fantastic structure.
So what did it take to make the q1 pool fence?
This being the penthouse, luxury was of course important. That meant that we opted for the Frameless Glass Pool Fence option– amazingly uninterrupted views that let the pool blend seamlessly with the rest of the penthouse for a five star feel.
Naturally, only toughened clear glass would suit such a magnificent penthouse with a view to match that is the envy of people all around the world. The customer insisted that we only use marine grade stainless steel fittings, that wasn’t an issue as we use that on all of our glass pool fence installations in the Gold Coast. It was also asked that we use hydraulic soft close hinges, these are a high-end item that guarantee longevity and a super quiet self-closing mechanism. Hinges on pool fences are obligated by law to be self-closing, and although our conventional spring loaded stainless steel hinges are proper, the hydraulic ones are fantastic and do it all quietly– so if you are on the Gold Coast looking for a Glass pool fence– consider the hydraulic hinge option for an extra bit of class.
The difficult component about this job was getting the staff to stay prioritized the job at hand, with such an exceptional view is was easy to be distracted. It was such a renowned aspect of the Gold Coast we felt honored just to be involved. There was a restful beauty to the room, and you often would find yourself gazing out over the kilometers of Gold Coast coastline and ocean before you. Luckily, we had a great team on the job and we were completed by lunch time, with as little disturbance as possible to the penthouses management. The owner services division were incredibly helpful and made certain that we had great access and use of the trade elevator so that we could carry the glass all the way to the 74th level.
I feel that this specific job is important– not just simply because it was for such a first-class Gold Coast Icon, but because it stands as a little bit of a unique statement. Back even as little as Ten Years ago, when we started our Glass Pool Fence company most of our jobs installing Custom Frameless Glass Pool Fencing were actually for these 5-star penthouse style homes. It was genuinely only for the richest people on the Gold Coast. Now, the overwhelming quantity of our jobs are for your normal people– it is more cost effective than ever and it gives each and every home an extra touch of prestige that absolutely is a true statement about the Gold Coast.
