Different types of gates and latches in pool fencing

10 May 2017

Depending on which type of fence you prefer, there are different types of gates and latches associated with each.

Semi Frameless Glass Pool Fences:

Semi-Frameless fences only come with a spring loaded glass gate, and the spring loaded gate has a set of stainless steel hinges and a magnetic ‘magna’ latch.

Frameless Glass Pool Fences:

This type of glass pool fence comes with a choice of glass gates:

1. Frameless Spring Loaded Glass Gate: The spring loaded gate has a set of stainless steel hinges and a stainless steel latch.

2. Frameless Floor Mounted Hydraulic ‘Soft Close’ Gate: In order to install this soft close hydraulic gate, a section of your floor will need to be cut out. These look great as they have lots of stainless steel fittings, and the gates close nice and slowly. These soft close gates are highly recommended if our clients have the budget for them.

3. ‘Soft Close’ Patch Fitting Option: This is another floor mounted soft close option, although this patch fitting soft close option doesn’t require us to cut out a section of your floor. Additionally, this option is slightly cheaper than the Frameless Floor Mounted Hydraulic Soft Close option. 

Each type has varying benefits, and each suit different budgets and style preference. The style and looks of your fence are very much a personal decision.
