Fencing: Protect Your Home and Garden

Hello, my name is Graham. This is my blog which contains information about the benefits of installing fencing on your property. For many years, my family and I lived in a property which was open to the rest of the neighbourhood. My wife always said that she didn't like the feeling of walling herself in when she was at home. However, over the past few months, there has been a big increased in the amount of crime in our district. A couple of our neighbours had their homes broken into. It was then I decided to install a large metal fence to protect my family and my home.


4 Main Benefits of Glass Pool Fencing

In most parts of Australia, you require a pool fence to ensure compliance with local pool safety laws and regulations. You should install one even if there is no legislation requiring you to do so.

Glass pool fence installation aims to block small children and pets from accessing the pool area unsupervised, minimising the chance of drowning and other pool hazards. Keep reading to discover the various advantages that glass pool fences can deliver. 

1. They are excellent pool barriers 

When protecting your kids against pool dangers, you need an effective physical barrier system for your pool.

Glass pool fences have thick tempered safety glass many times stronger than regular (annealed) glass. The sheer strength of tempered glass offers high resistance to impact, reducing the risk of breakage.

If tempered glass breaks, it does not form the sharp shards of standard glass. Instead, it shatters into pebble-like bits that minimise the chance of injury to people.

Glass fences also have smooth surfaces that kids can't climb, increasing their safety.

2. They allow you to identify potential pool safety issues

A glass fence will work well if you want to supervise your kids when they go outside to play. The clear glass panels used for fence installation will provide an unobstructed view of your pool and surrounding areas, allowing you to ensure safety around the pool.

3. They don't affect how your property looks 

Although pool fences are essential for safety purposes, they don't have to ruin the overall appearance and ambience of your property. 

Unlike traditional solid fence panels that offer complete privacy, a glass fence will not block your view of the pool and surrounding areas, allowing you to enjoy magnificent views of your property's exterior environment. 

4. They are easy to clean and maintain 

A glass fence is also an excellent choice if you want to use minimal time and effort to keep your pool fence looking its best throughout the year. You'll never need to paint the glass to fix fading or peeling paint. Hosing it down with clean water and manufacturer-recommended glass cleaning products is sufficient to keep it looking new. 

As a property owner, you are generally responsible for ensuring the safety of the people on your property. While a glass pool fence is essential for restricting access to the pool area and increasing safety, it offers many benefits.
