FAQ

Do I need a concrete footing?

No because our spigots are engineered and designed by us we have developed a fencing system that saves you money and eliminates this extra cost.

 

 

What surface can the fence be installed into?

Our fences are installed into pavers, concrete and on decking.

 

 

Will the fence be pool compliant?

Yes, all Quality Fence Construction fences are built to or exceed Australian Standard AS1926-2012.

 

 

I’m buying a property with no pool fence. Can you help?

All swimming pools must have a continuous safety barrier maintained by the pool owner that restricts access by young children to the pool. If you are selling or buying a property with a pool built before July 1993 you must make sure that the safety barrier meets today’s standard for new pools. This means we will provide a quote for both parties (owner and buyer) and have a pool fence installed so that settlement can take place.

 

 

How high is the pool fence?

1.2 metres in height and any boundary fences used as part of the child-safety barrier are at least 1.8 metres high on the side that faces the pool, with a 900mm non-climbable zone at the top inside of the fence; a boundary barrier may be climbable on the neighbour's side.

 

 

How thick are the glass panels?

Our toughened glass comes in 8mm and 12mm thickness.

 

 

What is the gate safety regulation?

Gates to the pool area must: swing outward from the pool area and be self-closing from any position. They must also be fitted with a latching device out of reach of small children at least 1.5m above ground level or shielding of the latch as per AS 1926.1-2012 part 2.4.2.3. All of our latches are key lockable.

 

 

Who will install the fence?

The Company owner will also be onsite and oversee the installation process. An experienced team of employees who specialise in installing glass fencing and balustrade daily will install your glass fence. We don’t use contractors!

 

 

What maintenance will the fence require?

Glass fencing is low in maintenance and will only need to be cleaned occasionally to keep its seamless appearance.

 

 

How long will it take to build my fence?

Depending on the size the average glass pool fence is installed within 48 hours.
