A pool fence is an essential safety feature in your home. There are lots of factors you need to consider, however, when deciding what type of pool fence you want to have. From all the options you have available,
glass is the best choice. This is because of the advantages that glass offers. Those advantages include:
- Glass looks stylish
- It’s strong and durable
- It’s safe too
- And it’s long-lasting
- Requires minimal maintenance
- Doesn’t obstruct views
- Creates a sense of space
- Stops wind but it lets in light
- Suits different styles of house
Let’s look at each of these in more detail.
Glass Looks Stylish
There are lots of different types of fence you can get for your pool, but none of them look as stylish, modern, and sophisticated as glass. In fact, with a glass pool fence, you get something that is as important to the aesthetics of your outside space as it is to the safety of your pool.
Glass is Strong and Durable
Glass pool fences are incredibly strong. In fact, they are practically impossible to break as the glass used is nothing like the glasses in your cupboards and is an even higher grade than the glass in your windows.
Glass is Safe
Following on from the last point, glass pool fences meet all current safety standards. In addition, glass makes it easy for you to see and monitor children from wherever you are. Plus, it is very hard for children to climb over a glass fence.
Glass is Long-Lasting
Glass is not affected by the elements to the same extent as other fencing options. This means it doesn’t suffer from the same level of wear and tear and it doesn’t rust. This makes glass pool fences much longer lasting.
Requires Minimal Maintenance
Other types of fence require regular maintenance including painting, oiling, or treating. You won’t have to do any of these things if you have a glass pool fence. All you need to do is occasionally clean the glass, although this is a quick and easy job.
Doesn’t Obstruct Views
Other types of fence obstruct views of your garden and beyond. You don’t have this problem with a glass pool fence, however. This means you can enjoy your pool, your garden, and other views all at the same time.
Creates a Sense of Space
Other types of fence can make pool areas seem closed in and smaller. Glass has the opposite effect – it creates a sense of space around your pool and in your garden generally. This is particularly important if you have a small garden.
Stops Wind but Lets Sun and Light In
Glass is very effective at stopping wind, so can make spending time in the pool more comfortable and enjoyable. While it stops wind, glass lets in light and warmth from the sun.
Suits Different Styles of House
Glass suits almost any style of house and garden from large to small, modern to traditional.
In fact, your glass pool fence will become a feature of your outside space to sit alongside your pool and other features you have in your garden. So, don’t just choose a fence that is functional as glass offers so much more.
