Frameless glass panels are not new to homeowners. They're commonly used in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas of the home to add flavour and elegance into the space. If you're considering glass pool fencing, a frameless design can also add elegance and style to your swimming pool area. Frameless glass pool fencing is stylish, customisable and durable.
By doing away the glaring frames that surround glass panels, your swimming pool area will have a modern design that makes all your guests look on with awe. And if you're still on the fence about this design, here are four reasons why you should consider frameless glass pool fencing.
1. Easier to maintain
The first thing you'll notice with frameless glass panels is how easy they are to maintain. There are no large and conspicuous frames that provide a hiding space for dirt and debris.
In addition, many glass frames are typically made of metal. These metallic frames are often subjected to corrosion, wear and tear and breakage from people using the pool. Using frameless glass around your pool eliminates these annoying frames that make maintenance a nightmare.
2. Create an elegant appearance around your pool
If you haven't witnessed how beautiful frameless glass panels can look, you should give them a try around your pool. The frameless design is stylish and creates an illusion of an open, continuous space.
When sunlight reflects off your water surface and against the frameless glass panels, the contrast is truly breathtaking. Even a boring pool design can appear elegant just by adding some frameless glass panels around the pool area. And with minimal hinges, enclosures and handles, more attention can be focused on the actual pool area. You also don't have to worry about colours that may not match with the outside of your home.
3. Durable glass panels
Many people mistakenly think that having thick frames around their glass panels makes the fence more durable. However, frameless glass fencing is equally (if not more) durable than using frames.
Most frameless designs use thick and sturdy panels that provide excellent structural integrity. They can withstand strong winds, heavy rain and constant use. And if a glass panel is damaged, replacement is a quick and easy process.
4. Makes your pool appear larger
If you have a small pool that requires fencing, opaque fences can make the pool area look small and claustrophobic. One way to avoid this problem is to use frameless glass pool fencing.
The frameless design creates a continuous feel that blends the pool area with the rest of your home. The end result is that your pool appears larger than it actually is.
