Our Stainless Steel Spigots


Our Frameless Glass Spigots are manufactured from 2205 Stainless Steel which has superior strength and corrosion resistance properties to traditional 316 Stainless Steel.  As the spigots are in close vicinity to a high chlorine and salt water environment, you should insist on 2205 Stainless Steel for your pool area to ensure longer life and structural integrity. Our Spigot Range is available in round and square profiles for core-drilled and base-plated applications.

Our Glass Gates & Hinge Panels


We offer a choice of 2 gate options in 3 different sizes.  Our value range of glass gates are 8mm Grade A Toughened Glass with stainless steel spring hinges and spring hinge panels to suit.

Our premium range of glass gates are 12mm Toughened Glass with the Softerclos Hinges.

We also offer a second premium range of Polaris Gate and Hinge Panels to suit our range of premium Polaris

Our range of hinge panels are 12mm Grade A toughened glass in sizes ranging from 1000mm to 1600mm for use with standard Hinge and our range of premium SofterClos hinges.

The polaris range of hinge panels are also 12mm Grade A toughened glass in sizes ranging from 1000mm to 1600m with cut outs to suit our Polaris Soft Close Hinges.

Both hinges in our premium range have a soft, slow closing action which is ideal when kids are operating the gate.

Our Retaining Wall Panels – In Stock

 

We have a comprehensive range of retaining wall panels in stock to ensure your fencing complies with Australian Pool Safety Standards – AS1926.1.

 

12mm Glass Retaining Wall Panels


We stock a range of retaining wall panels for pool surrounds where there is a change in level due to retaining walls. Panels are 1200mm wide and cater for changes in levels up to 600mm in height.  These panels are considerably more cost effective than custom locally sourced panels and are available ex stock so you can complete your project with no delays.

Packaging


All of our glass panels and gates are fully packaged in cardboard boxes with corner protection for safe and easy handling.  Whilst toughened glass is very robust, it is susceptible to chips or breakage during handling and transport to site.  Oxworks is the only glass fencing supplier who fully package each piece of glass to ensure your order is transported safely and securely.  We regularly ship glass fencing and components all over Australia and are the experts at ensuring your order arrives in perfect condition.

 

Easy to Install DIY Project


Our glass pool fencing range is modular in design and very simple to install.   With proper preparation, most pool fences can be installed in a matter of hours.  We provide a full DIY Installation Guide with step by step instructions on how to measure, set out and install your fence with handy trade tips to ensure you successfully complete the project.  You can also ring us anytime for professional guidance and technical advice if required.  Send us a dimensioned ‘mud map’ of your pool area and we can work out everything you need to build your compliant pool fence.

Compliance to AS1926.1 (2012)


All swimming pool fences are a safety product, and must be manufactured and installed to comply with AS1926.1 (2012).  Oxworks issue compliance certificates with supporting test reports with every job.  These are required by the certifier who does the final inspection on your new pool or home.  Beware of cheap, internet specials advertising pool fencing and spigots as they generally don’t comply with Australian Standards or have test reports required for your certifier.  Our entire range of pool fencing has been manufactured to exceed AS1926.1 (2012) and independently tested by NATA approved testing laboratories to confirm compliance.  We can provide expert advice on how to ensure your pool fence is fully compliant.

 

Flatness (Bow Allowance)

To be determined by adherence to requirements for substrates in accordance with AS/NZS2208:1996 & AS/NZS 4667:2000. Bow and Warpage shall be checked on the long edge using a straight edge with the panel standing within 5° of vertical.

Nominal Thickness: 8, 10, 12mm

Annealed Float, Heat Strengthened & Toughened Glass: 1mm every 400mm (5mm Maximum)

Cost of Frameless Glass Pool Fencing


Below we have provided some pricing guides for your budgeting purposes.  There are many factors that affect the overall price of the project, including size of the job, number of gates, size of panels used, configuration of fence, site access, change in levels or sloping ground etc, so please use this as a budgeting & comparison guide only.  Oxworks will always provide you with an itemised quote for all components required to complete your project.  Trade pricing and project rates are also available on our entire range.

 

 

Glass Design and Tolerances


Surface treatments

Toughened glass cannot be drilled or edge-worked in any manner. Surface treatments including sand blasting should be carried out prior to toughening.

 

Bowing Allowances – Flatness

Very slight distortion or bowing may occur after toughening but is largely controllable. It will vary with substance, size and shape of the glass. Flatness is measured when the glass is standing on edge, a straight edge placed along the length of the panel and a wedge measurement taken at the centre position. It is to be determined by adherence to requirements for substrates in accordance with AS/NZS2208:1996 & AS/NZS 4667:2000.

Nominal Thickness: 8, 10, 12mm

Annealed Float, Heat Strengthened & Toughened Glass: 1mm every 400mm (5mm Maximum)

 

Visual distortion

The furnacing of glass panels can produce slight corrugated distortion or roller waves. This visual effect is in the form of distortion bands 250–300mm apart. It is more noticeable in tinted and reflective toughened glass. Less visual distortion is evident with a heat strengthened glass.

 

Quench pattern

During the toughening process, glass goes through a quenching phase where it is rapidly cooled by high velocity blasts of air. This process may result in the occasional appearance of a strain pattern or darkish shadows due to slightly higher levels of compression adjacent to the air nozzles. Typically, the “quench pattern” is only visible when wearing polarised sunglasses or by viewing the glass from the inside at acute angles. The confirmed observation of this optical phenomenon is a positive indicator the glass has been thermally treated and is not considered a defect.

 

Plastic Wrap/Packaging

To ensure safe delivery and transport, we use protective packaging on all of our toughened glass. We recommend keeping your packaged glass dry and for any plastic wrap to be removed no later than two weeks after exposure to sunlight.

 

Breakages


Most often, breakage is usually due to incorrect handling, surface damage or excessive loading on toughened glass. However, on very rare occasions, toughened glass can break for what seems to be no apparent reason. A variety of contaminants in the raw stock can lead to problems either during or subsequent to the toughening process.

 

Nickel Sulphide

Microscopic nickel sulphide stones are a rare, undetectable contaminant in raw glass stock. The heating and rapid surface cooling processes of glass toughening is believed to change NiS stones from a stable to unstable state. Heat soaking is a method used to lower the chances of spontaneous breakage.

Heat soaking

Heat soaking involves heating toughened glass in a special oven at temperatures close to 280ºC to 290ºC for several hours to induce breakages that may be caused by inclusions or contaminants in the glass. However heat soaking does not guarantee detection of all inclusions or contaminants that may lead to spontaneous breakages.
