The cost of a glass pool fence can fluctuate greatly depending on a number of factors. The most important factors in determining the cost are:
- Length of fence – This is the most obvious factor, but the longer the fence the more panels and installation work required.
- Quality of materials used – Budget suppliers cut corners on everything they can from standard of glass, cheap posts and/or spigots, even poor latch/hinge quality.
- Style of spigot in frameless – Premium compression spigots will mechanically anchor the glass and will cost slightly more than a friction spigot which clamps onto the outer surface of the glass.
- Landscape / surface the fence needs to be mounted to – Angled panels often have to be custom made.
- Installation costs – If you DIY (do it yourself) you will save yourself the labour costs of having a professional do the job.
- Certification cost – If you are having a pool fence installed you need to make sure it meets standards, otherwise you may have to remove it down the track.
Pool Fence Comparison
SEMI FRAMELESS GLASS
Semi-Frameless glass is very popular and is preferred by some over frameless glass. The glass allows an almost uninterrupted view with the framing being made of aluminium or stainless steel posts.
Frameless glass is the ultimate in pool fencing. It is the best fencing because it is practically invisible and represents style and quality. Frameless glass panels are held in place with spigots which are anchored to the ground surface.
Aluminium fencing comes in a range of colours and is the most affordable option when it comes to certifiable pool fencing. Aluminium is extremely durable and when the powder coating is done properly it will resist fading for a number of years.
