Before you start

Before you start
So, you’ve got a new pool and now you need to put in a fence.

Before you get started, here are some things to consider:

Your local council or building authority will let you if you need a permit.

Measure the area so you know exactly how many panels you’ll need.

Decide what type of glass fence you want – framed, semi frameless, fully frameless.

Determine what components you need – posts or spigots, hinges, locks, panels and gates.

Talk to us – our expert team at Exakt Glass can answer your questions and provide advice.

Make sure you’ve got the right tools for the job – you’ll need an impact driver and drill, suction caps for moving glass, and personal safety equipment.

Ask a friend or hire a helper – solid glass panels are too heavy for one person to safely carry.

Prepare the space – have a soft place to rest the panels and ensure you’ve got a clear flat path.

Safe work practices – in addition to gloves, goggles and boots, remember your safe lifting techniques.

Plan for success – make sure your hose can reach the pool so you can celebrate a job well done!
