Step by Step Instructions

1 Tools to install a glass pool fence
2 Know your pool fence regulations
3 Keep the surroundings clear
4 Maintain the lock
5 Tighten the post screws
6 Tighten the fence supports
  • Step 1. Tools to install a glass pool fence

    Before you install a glass pool fence, there are some specialist tools you need. A glass suction lifter will help you carry the glass much more easily. Always wear the right safety gear including non-slip gloves for carrying glass and safety glasses to protect your eyes. It’s also a good idea to have rubber mats you can rest the glass panels on, so they don’t get scratched or crack.

  • Step 2. Know your pool fence regulations

    Drowning is the most common cause of preventable death of children aged 5 years and under. That’s why there are strict laws regarding pool fences. These laws are there to protect the safety of young children by restricting their access to the swimming pool or spa. Make sure you know your local laws before building your pool fence.
  • Step 3. Keep the surroundings clear

    Once your glass pool fence has been installed, check to make sure there are no objects near the fence. This is to stop children from being able to climb onto the object and get into the pool or spa area, without any adult supervision.
  • Step 4. Maintain the lock

    Regularly check the lock on the pool fence door. Do this by opening the door and making sure that it self-closes and that the lock clicks into place. 

  • Step 5. Tighten the post screws

    As part of your regular pool fence maintenance routine, lift up the cover and check that all of the screws holding the posts to the decking are tight. If necessary re-tighten them.

  • Step 6. Tighten the fence supports

    Included in your glass pool fence installation kit is an Allen key. Use this key to regularly tighten the supports that hold the glass panels in place.
