We’re set for a long hot summer and for those lucky enough to have pools in their backyard, tis the season to ensure your fencing meets all the necessary safety requirements.
Interesting fact; did you know O’Brien also replaces pool glass fencing?
O’Brien was called to a beachside residence in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs to perform some maintenance work on a stunning pool with a view recently.
To maximise the views from this pool, the residents had opted for glass panelling.
Located so close to the sea, the glass panels surrounding the pool are completely at the behest of the natural environment and crashing waves had bent the spigots supporting the glass, forcing one panel to pop out, which is why it needed to be replaced.
It took the work of three glaziers and 6 hours to successfully complete the job. The team removed the existing spigots; replacing them with heavy-duty powder-coated spigots which are more ideal for the environment. There were many things that needed to be considered to execute this job safely, not least of all the weather conditions.
In doing the work, the team recommended the four pool fence balustrade panels were replaced at the same time and the result not only ensures the safety of those in the pool this summer, but the transparent panelling means the natural beauty of the spot is maximized for the residents and their guests.
