How Much Does Glass Pool Fencing Cost in Melbourne?

Glass pool fencing is ideal for a number of reasons. Glass is easy to clean and does not degrade easily. Stainless steel fittings and accessories do not corrode or oxidise and any splash back from the pool will not affect the integrity of the fence. Glass pool fencing is also easy to maintain and variances in temperature and moisture levels will not warp the structure.

Our glass pool fencing suppliers can provide toughened glass panels in a variety of sizes and thicknesses depending on the shape and size of the pool. We also offer an impressive selection of hinges, gates and latches to make the area even more secure. From face mount hinges to latch kits and more, we have no shortage of tailored solutions for you to choose from.

Bring your plans to us and our team of experts will be happy to source the right supplies for your project. From toughened glass panels as small as 400 mm x 1200 mm through to larger options that measure 1200 mm x 1200 mm, you are sure to find something in our range that suits your requirements and budget.

Types of Pool Fencing and Their Costs

Surround you new or existing swimming pool with glass pool fencing. The cost of glass pool fencing varies depending on the type of glass panels and stainless steel fittings and accessories used.

From toughened glass panels as small as 400 mm x 1200 mm through to larger options that measure 1200 mm x 1200 mm, we stock a range of panel sizes that will suit your requirements. All glass panels are a standard 12 mm thick and the weight of each panel varies between 14 kg and 72 kg depending on its size. As an indicative guide, the larger the panel, the greater the cost.

In addition, we sell a range of stainless steel accessories to complement the glass panel inserts. Whether you wish to have a stainless steel handrail, frameless glass design or a mounted fence with spigots, we stock a wide range of stainless steel fittings (including latches, hinges, spigots and clamps) to suit your needs. All fittings are available in either a satin or mirror finish and are suitable for Australia’s climate.

How Much Does Glass Pool Fence Installation Cost?

Pool fence installation costs depend on various factors. For example, the following factors will affect the cost:

  • Installation environment (including the location and foundations);
  • Architectural complexities;
  • Length and height of fencing;
  • Non-regular glass designs (which requires cutting);
  • Multiple entry/exit gate points;
  • Stainless steel accessories;
  • Frameless glass designs;
  • Non-linear glass designs (i.e. curved features); and
  • Bespoke and custom features.

Each installer will set and determine their own cost based on the above factors and more. It is important you conduct your research and consider the following:

  • Ask many questions (even if the answer is obvious);
  • Work with the installer to lower the cost;
  • Source more than one quotation;
  • Check to see if the installer has installation experience;
  • Look for accredited installers only;
  • Ensure the installer is aware of all rules (including local council permit requirements), regulations and laws;
  • Ensure the installer understands the design plans and installation environment;
  • Check if any maintenance guarantee or warranty is provided;
  • Seek recommendations from friends and family; and
  • Do not be pressured into making a decision.
