Choosing to design and build a pool is a significant investment for many homeowners, and it's also an addition to the home that comes with various stringent requirements, including fencing. We spoke to Haynes Glass about how to make the most of residential pools with compliant yet unobstructive fencing.

Pool fencing is an issue requiring strict compliance in New Zealand, for very good reasons. Safe pool fences ensure areas of water don’t become a hazard, especially for younger children. However, integrating compliant pool fencing into residential landscapes can be somewhat of a challenge if it is to be both aesthetically pleasing and functional in terms of safety.

 

That’s where glass makes its claim at the heart of the New Zealand pool fencing industry. It’s a material that seamlessly fits into almost any style of land- and poolscaping, adequately encloses the pool if installed correctly and compliantly, and does not detract from the views of the pool - views which are generally of central importance to a cohesive and inviting outdoor area. While there are many options for pool fencing, including aluminium, timber, and even using boundary fences or parts of the house to make up part of the overall fence, glass stands out, and has become a sought after material.

 

Glass offers a multitude of benefits, apart from being transparent to allow for both views of the pool and easy visual access for those needing to keep an eye on children swimming. It also invites a more social atmosphere with easy communication between those on either side of a pool fence. 

 

In many cases, the addition of a pool in a residential setting is not just for the ability to swim in it. A pool can create a dramatic visual presence within the overall landscaping, and for many homeowners the ability to be able to easily see that feature during both the day and night is important. Many people choose to incorporate lighting into a pool, and being able to enjoy that lighting without the interference of a fence that isn’t transparent is an important part of the overall design.

Are there different types of glass pool fences?

Haynes Glass are specialists in glass pool fencing and balustrades, operating across the upper half of the North Island. They offer three main types of glass pool fence, each which has its own unique benefits.

 

Disc anchor frameless glass pool fences

The first is known as disc anchors. A disc anchor glass pool fence uses stainless steel pins bolted through pre cut holes in frameless glass panels. The glass is extended below ground level before being fixed in place by the pins. Fixings for disc anchor glass fences are available in square or round profiles.

 

Mini post frameless glass pool fences

A mini post system uses small, robust stainless steel posts to support the glass panels. They offer a minimalist aesthetic, and work well in many contemporary settings. With a range of fixing options, including surface mounted or side fixed. Mini posts raise the glass above the ground to allow water, leaves and debris to escape.

 

Continuous channel glass pool fences

A continuous channel system is a simple but effective style of glass fencing with clear lines. It allows longer panels of glass to be used than the other two styles of pool fencing. Channel system fences offer a sleek and continuous look. Top-mounted, side-fixed and recessed fixing options are available in a range of finishes.

If you’re considering the addition of a pool into your home, or are looking at ways to upgrade current pool fencing, make sure you visit Haynes Glass on ArchiPro here to have a look at the options.
