Toughened glass panels 10mm to 12mm thick are what’s usually involved in a frameless glass fence system. Small metal clamps are used to make sure the glass stays in place between a pair of posts which gives the impression the glass is suspended in between them. These clamps are commonly referred to as patches.
Deciding whether to use a 10mm or 12mm glass comes down to the gap between posts that it has to occupy. Rules vary from state to state and that’s why getting a professional to install them is important. You need someone who understands your local area’s regulations and can ensure that your glass fence will pass compliance inspections.
If your house has existing posts or the ground doesn’t have the ideal concrete base, these patch fittings could be the system that works best and gives additional support for a much safer fence. While getting frameless glass panels mounted on spigots is ideal in a lot of situations, and certainly something to be desired, setting up on old timber or ground that is paved on gravel may not be the best and safest option. A patch fitted frameless fencing system is still a frameless one since the glass isn’t set in the posts themselves but rather mounted on little patches.
Getting a frameless patch fitted system could be the best thing to ever happen to your property, but you can certainly opt to mix in some elements from another system and even choose glass colours. We are here to advise you on what’s best and economical for you. New and exciting patch fittings are being engineered and entering the market and we would be glad to help you find and choose the one that is safest and meets your preference.
