Frameless Glass Balustrade

Glass balustrade for a swimming pool

If you are lucky enough to have a swimming pool in your back garden, then it’s probably safe to assume that you are also interested in making sure that you keep everyone who lives in your home and visits it safe from any unforeseen accidents. Here at Origin Architectural, we believe that one of the best, easiest, and most popular ways to create this safety is to opt for a glass balustrade to provide a barrier of protection between the water and any small children or pets that might be wandering around unattended. We can’t always have all eyes on all people at once! Many people are choosing our Viola system in a mirror-polished finish and here’s why:

The transparent nature of a glass balustrade is obviously beneficial in the sense that you are able to keep a good eye on everything that is going on both in and around the pool, as a grown adult who knows how to swim you might not see much danger in a garden pool, but if you have children or animals running around the place then there is always going to be an element of risk with an unprotected pool. It’s arguably the safest option currently available.

The transparency can benefit your garden from an aesthetic point of view too. You can enjoy uninterrupted views of your garden because clear glass does not obscure anything. This is a huge plus if you are somebody who takes huge pride in the design and landscaping of your garden and wants to sacrifice that as little as possible.

 A glass balustrade is very low maintenance in comparison to some other options on the market. Compared to wooden alternatives, it is the easiest to clean, with a glass cleaner or a simple soap and water wash being the best way to keep everything spotless. Opting for the mirror-polished finish on your balustrade prevents any damage the chlorine in the water may cause to the stainless steel – opting for a classic 316 external grade of stainless steel will rapidly discolour and pit.

If you are the kind of person who likes to keep tabs on the increasing value of their property, then the installation of frameless glass pool fencing can definitely add some value to your home as a whole. It looks and feels more professional and as discussed above gives that extra edge of security and safety that prospective buyers will like. Pool fencing is a relatively simple way to add some important value to your property.
