Benefits of Having a Frameless Glass Pool Fence

Pool Fence

Pool Fence

If you look at the statistics laid out by Australian Safety Authorities, kids are more prone to injuries and even deaths at swimming pools that are not well-secured. Therefore, while getting a pool installed, it is very important for homeowners to make sure that their pools are safe all the time. Pool fencing is a great idea to ensure safety. At Perth Fencing Centre, we provide best quality of frameless pool fence for your pool safety.

Traditionally, the materials that are most popular in the construction of swimming pool fencing are wood and steel. However, installation of frameless glass pool fencing in Perth  is a very common trend these days. This is because this type of pool fencing offers homeowners a lot of advantages. Let’s have a look at some of them here:


The most obvious benefit of the frameless glass pool fencing is that it is an aesthetically pleasing option.,Apart from their visual appeal, they are safer than other opaque fence choices. Frameless glass pool fencing will blend beautifully with the surroundings of your swimming pool. As a result, your pool won’t look out of place or awkward when you install frameless glass fencing.

Effective Safety Barriers

Just like other pool fencing materials, glass fencing materials will also keep kids from getting into the pool on their own by acting as effective safety barriers. You don’t have to supervise the pool continuously to make sure that no one is getting in trouble.

No Gaps or Edges

With a frameless glass pool fence, there are negligible gaps or edges on the fencing material. Therefore, there are very less chances of kids getting hurt or getting stuck in the gaps of the fencing. This type of pool fencing can even be made on order and therefore, you can easily get glass pool fencing of the desired shape and size. You also have the option of getting them customized later on.

Tough Glass
The material used in frameless glass fencing is a custom-manufactured glass. This type of toughened glass material is highly durable and strong, with thickness normally ranging from 8mm to 10mm and 12mm. Hence, it is bound to last for a really long period of time, without making any difference when it comes to aesthetics.

Also, the frameless glass pool fencing is significantly easier to maintain, as compared to other pool fencing materials, for example metal, iron, chain links, etc. Metallic fencing will ultimately rust with time, wood will eventually rot or get infested with fungus. Such infestation is even likely to infect the pool and make it unhealthy for everyone. With frameless glass fencing, you don’t have to worry about anything like this.

Glass is very easy to clean and maintain, unlike other traditional pool fencing materials. You don’t have to think about getting your glass pool fencing repainted or even applying a water or rust-repellent in order to keep them in good shape.

With frameless glass pool fencing, there is absolutely no risk of infection or even contamination of the pool water.

These were some of the benefits of getting frameless glass pool fencing installed. Also, make sure that you hire a qualified and highly trained contractor to get the job done.

Why use powder coating


What Is Powder Coating?

Aluminium Slats and Gate Powder coating is a finishing process where a colour or coating is applied to an unfinished part. A coloured powder is sprayed on the part using a magnetically charged spray gun. The coated part is then placed in an oven where the powder melts into an even, solid coat across the entire surface of the part. 

Why Use Powder Coating?

Powder coating has a number of advantage over traditional wet paint. A powder coated finish generally lasts longer and is more rugged than paint. Many common items like bicycle frames, wheel rims, aluminium slats and handrails are powder coated because it significantly reduces wear and tear.

Applying the powder and fixing mistakes are much easier. A typical training session to learn how to powder coat will only take a couple hours. And, since the powder has to be baked on to the part, if you notice any errors before curing, fixes are as easy as wiping the part down and spraying the part again. Wet paint touch-up work can take a long time and be very expensive – powder coating is cheaper to apply, costs less for training, and requires less time to master techniques.

Finally, powder coating is environmentally friendly. Combined with being cheaper to apply and easier to use, this is why many businesses have added powder coating to their offerings, and why the demand for powder coating is currently so high.

Advantages Of Powder Coating

Coating provides some tangible benefits over traditional wet paint finishing:

Powder Coating Provides A Better, More Durable Finish

If you have a part that has to hold up to a lot of handling  – or you just don’t want to constantly repaint it – powder coating is a much more durable finishing process that is highly resistant to scuffing , chipping and normal wear and tear. This is why handrails (the stair rails you see at bus stops and courthouses) are powder coated now instead of painted. Many different types of finishes are now available with powder coating than ever before and wide range of products can have their lifespans dramatically increased by switching to powder.

A Much Safer And Cleaner Process – For The Environment And You

If you are worried about the environmental impact of powder coating, set your mind at ease; powder coating is an eco-friendly alternative to wet paint. The powder used in powder coating is safe to handle and produces none of the VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that wet paint does. Wet paint VOCs deplete ozone and contribute to air pollution – powder doesn’t. If you are working with powder, you won’t have to use chemical paint thinners to fix mistakes. And overspray – the left over powder – can be easily recycled or disposed of without a bunch of chemical treatment.

Cheaper & Easier To Use

With a little bit of training and practice, it’s very easy to apply a consistent coat of whatever thickness you want onto your part. This is due to the electrostatic charge of the powder. Mistakes are easy to fix before curing. If you plan on using a lot of the same color, the powder you use can be reclaimed. The process itself is usually faster than wet paint and can increase your productivity, and the cost to operate the equipment can be significantly less than other finishing processes. For a more in-depth breakdown on how powder coating can be cheaper to run than you think.
