Fencing is an absolute necessity around any pool but that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for something that’s been done before. Install a truly unique pool fence by choosing coloured glass pool fencing. Here’s what you need to know.
What is Coloured Glass Pool Fencing?
Coloured glass for pool fencing may also be known as toned glass and it is created by adding metal oxides to the glass mix, thus producing different colours. The amount of oxides added will determine the intensity of the colour in the glass. Coloured glass is available in different tones of green, bronze, grey and blue. The glass is formed into panels which are then installed in the same way as standard glass pool fencing, via clamps or special posts.
Coloured Glass Pool Fencing is Safe
The most important thing about coloured glass pool fencing is that it is a very safe option. The glass itself, despite what colour is chosen, is fully toughened so that it’s difficult to break. In fact, it’s almost impossible to break but if it does, it will break into cubes, rather than into sharp shards. Coloured glass pool fencing is also fully compliant with strict pool fencing regulations as long as it is installed correctly (with the proper clearances etc). It’s a safe option for the kiddies as there is nowhere that the kids can climb it, as it is so smooth.
Coloured Glass Pool Fencing is Attractive
If you like the look of glass pool fencing but you want something a little “more”, coloured glass is the answer. Coloured glass can really tie in with the rest of your house and landscaping when you use the right tone. For example, if you have greys throughout your entertaining area, you can tie this in to the pool by using a light or dark grey glass.
Coloured glass pool fencing can also help you to define your pool area better. That is, you still have the ability to look through the fence, creating a more open space, but the colour in the glass also helps to create a defined pool area; the place where you go to swim. Coloured glass can also enhance the water in the pool – making it a deeper blue, or a brilliant green. You can even opt for an unusual bronze effect in the water (when you look through the glass), or created a sophisticated muted gray.
