The easiest way to clean glass panels

At Adelaide Glass Guys, we are often asked by our clients what is the best way to keep our glass panels clean for pool fencing and balustrades. While its true that all panels need cleaning, there is the right way and the wrong way to extend their life span and look.

All you need to know is that pool fencing or glass balustrade panels are very different from other type of glass around your home. Don’t simply think any old glass cleaner will do the job, as most glass cleaner’s leave residue or thin glaze on the surface of the glass.

The easiest way to clean your glass panels is with warm water and using a soft microfiber cloth or sponge to remove any dirt. We recommend to clean the glass every two to three months. But of course the more frequently you clean them, the better they will look.

To give your glass panels a whole refresh, if you haven’t done so for a while, using the same technique as above, but with a small amount of soap, meaning normal dishwashing liquid and not glass cleaner. If you have tough marks such as bird droppings you may need to use a sponge to remove those.

Once you’ve cleaned the glass surface, simply hose off the residue with clean water. We recommend hosing off before the detergent dries up to avoid streaking and residue being left.

We find that the above steps are enough to keep your glass panels nice and clean. You can as another additional step, use window cleaner and paper towel on the glass to create an even greater shine, but this requires alot more effort and elbow grease.

Our frameless glass pool fences are in adherence with Australian government's pool safety regulations

Pool and spa safety regulations

As a swimming pool or spa pool owner you are responsible for safety.

Drowning is the biggest cause of accidental death for young children. Most occur in private backyard swimming pools. You can reduce the risk of accidents occurring in your swimming pool or spa pool by adequately fencing your pool and ensuring young children are supervised at all times.

In a life-threatening or urgent situation phone the emergency services on 000.

Fencing

All swimming pools or spa pools must have a continuous safety barrier maintained by the pool owner that restricts access by young children to the pool.

If you are a property owner and are selling a property with a swimming pool or spa pool built before July 1993 you must make sure that the safety barrier meets today’s standard for new pools. Fencing must be constructed in such a way to make sure that:

  • the fence is an effective barrier to young children
  • it is permanent
  • young children can’t crawl under or climb over it by using foot and hand holds
  • it is at least 1.2 metres high
  • any boundary fences used as part of the child-safety barrier are at least 1.8 metres high on the side that faces the pool, with a 900 millimetres non-climbable zone at the top inside of the fence, a boundary barrier may be climbable on the neighbour’s side.

Gates to the pool area must:

  • swing outward from the pool area
  • be self-closing from any position
  • be fitted with a latching device, out of reach of small children, at least 1.5 metres above ground level.
