The first obvious benefit of the semi-framed balustrade is the cost. Coming in at our most inexpensive balustrade the savings come in the aluminium posts and top rail. The frameless fixings are all stainless steel which raises their cost so aluminium is an economical choice for those so inclined. Our Semi-Framed pool fences are made from 10mm toughened, A grade, safety glass.

Semi-Framed Pool Fencing

Frameless, our most popular pool fence, offers a clear view of the environment. No posts to obscure the view and a top rail to your taste.

It is a requirement by law that a top rail is fitted to pool fences where there is a drop of 1 meter or more from the finished floor surface unless a suitable engineering solution is provided. The top rail provides a barrier to help prevent someone from falling in the event of glass breakage. Our Frameless pool fences are made from 12mm toughened, A-grade, safety glass.

The benefit of our Frameless, toughened laminate balustrades is that they are engineered such that in the event of breakage, the glass stays in one piece offering a barrier to help prevent someone from falling.

In this way, we can provide fully frameless pool fences with no top rail at any height and still be compliant with all Australian regulations. Our Frameless, toughened laminate, balustrades are made from 15mm toughened laminate, A grade, safety glass.

From receipt of deposit we start cutting and processing the glass panels for your pool fence. You can expect the installation of your fence to take place within two to three weeks of receiving the deposit. Depending upon the size of your pool fence, installation may typically take between 1 and 4 days to complete.

Notes on Installation and things to think about:

  • It is important that all finished floor levels have been achieved before we come out to check measure glass.
  • Make certain that you raise any installation issues with us early in the piece. Ie, is there a detail or design on site that is still in discussion that may change? Location of lights, skimmer boxes?


What fixing style are you after? Round or square spigots? 38mm or 50mm dia glass anchors? Channel fixed? Satin Stainless Steel or Polished Stainless Steel finish? Glass type? Clear, frost, or …? Style of Handrail if required? Is your gate pivoting left or right handed? Given that the gate must swing away from the pool is there anything in the way?

Note: Once the glass has been toughened no further processing is possible so everything needs to be clear from the start.
