A pool can be appealing to a family with children, but it’s also a safety hazard. If you’re thinking about installing a pool at your home, you’ll need to have a sturdy fence around it to keep your kids, as well as other people’s children, out of danger. A glass fence is a strong barrier that can be installed on a wide range of surfaces, including concrete.
Benefits of a Glass Pool Fence
One of the main advantages of glass pool fencing is that it’s clear. If you install a glass fence, you’ll be able to see what’s happening in the area around the pool, even if you’re a significant distance away in another part of the yard or inside the house. If something is amiss, you’ll be able to spot it and act before someone gets hurt.
A glass pool fence won’t block your view of the landscape. You’ll still be able to see your garden, the trees around your property, and mountains or a body of water off in the distance.
Glass fencing is easy to maintain. An occasional wash with soap and water is generally all it takes to keep a glass pool fence clean and sparkling.
Pool fences are constructed with tempered glass, which is significantly stronger than standard glass. In the unlikely event that a glass fence breaks, it will form round pieces, not jagged shards. A tempered glass fence is therefore unlikely to injure someone who happens to be nearby.
How a Glass Pool Fence Can Be Installed on Concrete
A glass fence must be securely anchored to the ground. Different methods can be used, depending on the location and the type of material.
If you currently have concrete around the pool area, contractors will be able to drill holes in it, then secure clamps to hold the glass panels in place. If you don’t currently have a pool but you’re thinking about installing one, workers can install a glass pool fence as part of the overall construction project. They’ll be able to place the clamps in fresh concrete, then put the glass panels in place after the concrete has dried completely.
