frameless vs. semi-frameless Glass Pool Fences

Do you want to install new glass pool fencing or replace the existing pool fencing? You can choose between frameless and semi-frameless glass pool fencing, as these styles offer good visibility and augment the look of your area. Both styles serve the same purpose of keeping your family and pets safe.

Glass & Fencing Warehouse specialise in frameless glass pool fencing and glass balustrades, and we recommend frameless pool fencing over semi-frameless pool fencing style for the following reasons:

Semi-Frameless Glass Fence Get the Support of Posts

Semi-frameless fences are fitted with stainless steel or aluminium power-coated posts to support and hold together the glass panels. Semi-frameless fencing requires a stainless steel frame that the glass panes slide into. Thus, there is no cohesion between the glass panels. Semi-frameless fence panels use thinner glass, around 8mm and 10mm, while frameless fence panels use glass that is 12mm thick.

Frameless Glass Fence Has No Posts

Frameless glass fences do not have posts between each glass panel; instead, they have stainless steel fixtures at the base of each panel, drilled into the ground and cemented. As frameless panels don’t have posts, they use thicker glass than those used in semi-frameless panels.

Frameless Glass Pool Fencing is Easier To Clean & Maintain

On a frameless pool fencing, you only have to clean the fixtures, whereas, on a semi-frameless fence, you have to clean and maintain each post. So frameless glass pool fencing is easier to clean and maintain. Everybody wants to enjoy the pool more and devote less time cleaning glass pool fences. Thus, easier-to-maintain glass pool fencing makes for a big selling point. All types of glass pool fencing require regular cleaning to maintain their pristine condition and look appealing.

Frameless Glass Fences Are Visually Appealing 

Frameless glass fencing looks visually appealing, which is hard to beat. Frameless glass fencing is the peak of stylish contemporary pool fencing design, which is more expensive than semi-frameless glass fencing. A frameless fence provides clear views of the pool area. Though the semi-frameless glass fence also looks good, it lacks the contemporary, ultra-sleek and plush visual appeal.

Is Frameless or Semi-Frameless Glass Fencing Best For You?

Your budget is an important aspect. If you can spend more, you should go for frameless pool fencing. However, if you have a tighter budget, a semi-frameless pool fencing option will be best for you.
