It is a question we often hear at Aqua Vista Glass and one we love our future clients to ask. While we can still quote per-lineal-metre for the actual glass pool fencing, the overall cost will vary depending on individual project requirements and customer preferences. Current per-linear-metre prices are:
- Semi Frameless Glass Pool Fencing $200 to $275 per metre
- Frameless Glass Pool Fencing $275 to $350 per metre
- Frameless Glass Balustrade $375 to $450 per metre
- Custom Frameless Glass Balustrade $650 to $950 per metre
Each glass pool fencing project will incur additional costs as mentioned. Items such as removing old fencing or balustrades will be priced upon application, earthing will cost between $20-30 per metre, and pool fencing certification will need to be conducted by a third party that we can recommend at approximately $199 inclusive of certificate fees. At the opposite end of the scale, you could protect your family with cheap and nasty aluminium pool fencing from as little as $99 per metre installed! As you can imagine, we do not get involved in this market as we prefer our clients to receive the highest grade glass pool fencing that not only protects their families but adds value to their property.
Frameless glass pool fencing is the most effective type of pool fence and it's quite simply stunning.

Glass Pool Fence Cost Considerations
Many factors must be taken into consideration when deliberating the costs of a glass pool fence. Ultimately a person must weigh what are the most important criteria when purchasing glass pool fencing. First and foremost, who is installing- the glass balustrade? Most low-cost companies can't pay for top of the line installers and instead hire contractors. While most contractors are good people they don't have their companies name on the line and it is just about getting the job done. At Aqua Vista Glass we send actual employees out to do all local installations. Our people have been properly trained and in most cases have years of experience. They have pride in their work and also pride in the company they work for.
How long will my project take?
This is obviously job dependent, but AVG takes pride in finishing the job in the fastest time good quality allows. It is typical to see a Brisbane install completed in 3 days or less. Since our installers are doing these for only AVG, they can concentrate on getting the job done and not worrying about other distractions. Most contractors have many jobs at once and will have to leave your install to start or finish something else. Typically they can take upwards of a week or two for completion of your new glass pool fence.
Quality and Choice Have Cost Benefits
What kind of design choices do I have in regards to glass pool fencing? It really depends on the company you are dealing with. Most companies have limited supply on hand and don’t carry all sizes. These companies will usually have only one type of gate hinge, spigot or handrail. Aqua Vista Glass has design technicians that will be able to show you the best options for your project. You’ll be able to choose from many types of handrails, spigots and gates. We stock a range of products that will suit the aesthetics of your next glass pool fence.
When purchasing a glass pool fence you definitely want to make sure that there are quality control measures in place. Many small installers don’t have the manpower or the stock to effectively check the quality. They rely on their supply chain quality initiatives and hope they are sufficient. Aqua Vista Glass has quality measures in place every step of fulfilling an order. AVG operates with best practice warehouse and site techniques to make sure quality is protected everywhere. All AVG glass panels and components are tested at our factory by an independent testing body and exceed all industry tests relevant to Australian Standards. Our glass is sourced only from CSI certified sources, which leads to the best quality in the Brisbane area.
How Do You Clean a Glass Pool Fence?
Cleaning a glass pool fence is a breeze. If your glass pool fence has been treated with EnduroShield®, cleaning is as simple as washing the surface with warm water and a mild detergent such as washing up liquid. We recommend washing the glass with a soft lamb’s wool applicator or microfiber cloth before removing the surface water with a squeegee and drying the glass edge with lint free towel. EnduroShield® helps reduce cleaning time by 90% and maintains its appearance for longer between cleans, meaning you can spend more time admiring it from the comfort of your pool!
Choose a Company That You Can Rely On
Finally one of the most important aspects of pricing out a glass pool fence is checking out the customer service and post-sales service a company provides. AVG’s support is only a phone call away during the order, install and post order phases. As a company we are dedicated to answering the phone and knowing the industry inside and out. We have an internal sales team that is devoted to responding quickly to enquiries, orders and quotes. As a company that prides itself on being large enough to be experts and stable enough to always be here for you. The possibility of being left high and dry with smaller, inexperienced companies is increasingly common. Most of these places don’t have an internal team ready to address any questions or problems with your installation.
Aqua Vista Glass has quality components that are tested strenuously, a capable customer service team and a stable company that makes us Brisbane’s premier installer. You can be assured that when you install with us and stick to our recommended maintenance schedule, your glass pool fencing will look great for many years! We look forward to installing your next glass pool fence.
