4 Reasons Why You Should Install a Glass Pool Fencing for your Swimming Pool

Pool fencing is becoming a must-have safety feature in homes. Besides enhancing swimming pool safety, these fences also come in a variety of materials that can easily match the design of your home. This includes architectural glass, wood, metal and more. If you are searching for a replacement or thinking of installing fencing in your pool space, consider architectural glass as an option.

But if this is your first time purchasing pool fences, it can be an overwhelming process. To help you out, take a look at these four reasons why you should use glass for your pool fencing:  

Aesthetic appeal 

Not only will glass add a luxurious touch to your home, but it also opens up your space, making this material a more attractive option. With glass pool fencing, you can enjoy unobstructed views of your surroundings and your pool naturally becomes a display whenever you have guests over at your place. Especially if you are intending to sell your property in the future, your glass pool fencing will increase the aesthetic value of your place.

Enhanced safety

Did you know that having fencing around your pool perimeter reduces the possibility of accidents happening when you are not around? Particularly for families with children, having pool fencing prevents your little ones from accessing the pool on their own without your supervision. And when it is made of glass, you are also able to check on your young child when he is in the pool from inside the house. With its panels, glass pool fencing does not have any gaps as compared to temporary aluminium grills which may have otherwise allowed your child to squeeze his way through. This way, your home truly becomes a safer haven for your children, all while putting your worries to rest. 


If your concern is about the glass breaking, you will be more assured to know that architectural glass is much thicker and stronger when treated. As such, this makes it more durable than normal glass. With its strong structure, architectural glass replacements are used beyond pool fencing. This durable material is also commonly used as shower screens, balcony railings, canopies and more. Glass barriers are also laminated where 2 pieces of glass is adhered together via an interlayer PVB. This ensures that the barrier remains intact even when the glass is broken. This safety feature is a must according to our local building code as per BCA (Building and construction authorities).

Minimal maintenance 

We know how children like to splash around in the pool and pool fencing; it helps to keep other areas of your home from getting wet. But did you know that as compared to glass, materials like wood and metal are more prone to wear and tear when in constant contact with the chlorinated pool water? For wood, it is also more vulnerable to pest infestations and permanent discolouration when exposed to the sun and heat every day. As a result, such materials require more care and protection to keep them in good shape.

Glass, on the other hand, will not rust or give way and is easy to clean with a damp cloth. Just make it a point to wipe both sides again with a dry cloth to remove any water stains and there you have it, you can get back to enjoying your beautiful, long-lasting glass pool fencing for a longer period. This makes glass a more suitable pool fencing material, one that will last you for years.
