Pool Fencing/Barrier
When building a fence around your pool, ensure that:

1. It is at least 1200 millimetres tall all the way around when measured from the outside of the pool. If a boundary fence forms part of the pool fencing, it should be at least 1800mm high.

2. The gap between the bottom of the fence and the ground should be no more than 100mm.

3. Vertical or near vertical rails on the fence and gate should be no more than 100mm apart.

4. If using perforated or mesh fencing, ensure that the holes are 13mm in diameter or smaller.

5. The fence should always be well maintained and in excellent condition.

There is also a specific requirement to create a no-climb zone. All potential handholds and footholds (trees, planter boxes, chairs, BBQ’s, large rocks etc) cannot be within 900mm of the top of the pool fence in any direction.

Pool Gate
Pool fencing laws in GLASS TABLE TOP NYC also include specific requirements for pool gates. Here’s what you should know.

1. The gate must be self-closing and can latch by itself from any position. The latch must be in good condition and work properly to ensure that the gate is secure. Once closed, you should not be able to pull it open easily.

2. The gate must open outwards and away from the pool.

3. For a frameless glass pool fence the gate latch must be located on the inside/pool side of the fence. The gap between the glass gate and anything else must not exceed 10mm which would otherwise aid little fingers to release the gate latch.

If you’re looking around at options for a new shower installation, one of your first big choices will be the style or type of shower door you purchase. There are several possible options here, and at GLASS TABLE TOP NYC, we have a wide selection for you to choose from.

One of our most popular options are frameless shower doors, which come in a variety of options as well. Frameless glass shower doors go a long way toward placing the focus on the glass rather than metal frames and handle bars, and there are a few other major benefits as well. Let’s look at a few of these.

Frameless shower doors are custom glass, which means you’re not limited to mass-produced doors that only come in one or two standard sizes. You’ll have far more flexibility in your installation, with the ability to customize virtually all parts of your door. Sizes can be arranged within one-sixteenth of an inch in most cases, allowing for extreme precision during measurements and no issues with fit.

Most framed doors tend to give off a bulky, thicker look – their edges are covered in rubber, metal or some other seal format. Frameless doors are free of these kinds of visual burdens, providing a much more minimal look that places the focus on your beautiful glass. This can also help showcase gorgeous tile designs if you’ve had these installed in your bathroom as well.

Frameless shower doors also hold a couple major health benefits, primarily the way they prevent mold. Framed doors run the risk of water buildup underneath door seals, which allows mold and mildew to form and potentially negatively impact the health of those using the bathroom. Frameless shower doors come without these areas, and they’re also much easier to clean – all you need is a squeegee and a simple wipe to make the glass crystal clear again.
