glass walls and fences
Recently some panels have been requested with a thin 'stripe' along them in the middle, either in colour ( blue!) or the smoked glass effect, as sometimes children, and animals, in their excitement, can run into them..this helps their eyes to focus on them and avoid any problems.
Usually, these fences or pool surrounds, will be made of the 12mm toughened glass, which is heat treated , as they are very difficult to break. They can break when hit on the edges, but very hard to crack when mounted and hit in the centre of the pane.
The Laminate glass, can also be used , and is two sheets of glass which are 'laminated' together with a plastic film, and therefore again, do not shatter, but crack and stay in place. They can crack with any direct blow, in any part, just like normal glass.
The usual thickness
can be 8 or 10mm on both glass types, depending on height but 12 or even 14+mm can also be used
if extra strength or wind resistance is required. These should not be
used, without supports, in highly exposed areas subject to very strong
Panel size varies, but can be up to 2m long.
These are popular, but are also the most expensive per linear meter, from about 300 euros per meter, depending on glass thickness and bottom fixings.
