Our Toughened Glass
Our toughened glass panels and gates are stamped with the Australian Standards logo for your piece of mind. All toughened glass panels and gates supplied by Oxworks comply with AS2208 with test certificates are available for your certifier if required. Pool Fencing is a safety product and we guarantee you will only receive Grade A Toughened Safety Glass for your project.
Our Glazing Posts
Our Semi-Frameless Glass Posts are manufactured from 6063 T6 Aluminium and Powder Coated for superior strength and corrosion resistance properties. As the glazing posts are in close vicinity to a high chlorine and salt water environment, you should insist on Oxworks Aluminium Glass Posts for your pool area to ensure longer life and structural integrity.

Our Gate Hardware
We stock a full range of gate hardware to complement our entire glass pool fencing range. Our latches are manufactured by D&D Technologies, home of the iconic Magna Latch range. The Magna Latch can be key locked and is tested for more than 10,000 cycles, making it the safest latch available.

Our Retaining Wall Panels – In Stock
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.
Please note: Due to the height of these panels they are only available in 12mm Toughened Glass, you will therefore require 12mm Glazing Rubber instead of 10mm.

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.

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.

Glass Design and Tolerances
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
