Before buying and installing a pool fence you should be aware of the Australian Standards and local or state-specific regulations, so it’s important to check with your local council. It differs between states whether the pool fence requires its own building permit, or if it will be covered under the pool building permit. Pool fences must meet AS1926, which means that pool fencing:
The supply of glass pool fencing starts from around $120 per square metre, with glass pool fencing installation costing around $100 per square metre. However, there are ways you can manage the glass pool fence cost. Stainless steel components like glass fence spigots tend to be more expensive than the glass pool fence panels. Therefore, the design can influence the cost significantly. Having several gates, using smaller glass fence panels and having more fencing angles means you will need more parts to make up your fence, thus making it more expensive. Keeping the design of your fence simple, without the need for custom-made panels is a way to manage the cost of your new fence; as is keeping the fence as small as possible, while still meeting regulations. Another way to reduce the cost of your pool fencing is to consider DIY glass pool fencing.
If you’re handy and up to date on building and pool safety, you might consider DIY glass pool fencing. Exakt Glass offer comprehensive DIY advice, a frameless glass pool fencing installation guide and even a DIY glass and fencing warehouse in Melbourne.

We can also provide a helpful list of essential equipment you will need for the installation, such as safety gear, lifting equipment for moving glass panels, an impact driver and drill.
