Part of pool ownership is installing and maintaining a pool fence. Whether you’re installing a pool fence for a new pool or upgrading your existing one, it’s likely the first question you want answered is: How much does pool fencing cost?
The price will, of course, depend on the material (glass or metal) as well as the size of the area that needs to be fenced. Therefore, it’s always best to book in a free measure and quote to get an accurate price.
Glass Pool Fencing Styles
A metal pool fence (steel and aluminium) is both affordable and durable, although not as attractive as a glass pool fence.
The two types of glass pool fencing are
- Frameless glass fencing
- Semi -frameless glass fencing
Frameless glass is the most stylish type of pool fence, creating an elegant, yet secure, pool barrier while permitting a clear line of sight across your property. Semi-frameless fencing is a good compromise if you can’t afford the frameless option. The glass panels are separated by posts, but will still create an elegant finish and semi-frameless is cheaper than frameless.
Is My Pool Fence Compliant?
All pools need a well-maintained safety barrier that complies with current pool safety legislation.
