If you’re thinking of installing a pool in your yard or you already have one built, it’s very important that you maintain the safety of your pool area. Complying with the pool fence regulations and laws in your state is your responsibility as a pool owner.
If you have pool fencing that doesn’t comply with the laws, children below the age of 5 could accidentally drown in your pool. To prevent young children from drowning and ensure their safety and wellbeing, you must abide by the regulations set in your state and take preventative measures. The laws on pool fencing discussed here only apply to Queensland, as they’re different in other states and territories.
As of 30 November 2015, all pool fences should comply with current pool safety laws, such as:
New pool fences must comply with the current standard. You don’t need a building development approval where:
If you’re considering installing a pool for your children and loved ones, Aqua Vista Glass has everything you need, including high-quality glass pool fencing and supplies with competitive prices.
What’s more, all the glass pool panels we make undergo a strict quality testing process to make sure they meet and exceed national safety regulations. If you’re interested and want to find out more, you can browse our other ranges to see what Trade Glass Depot has to offer. You’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for. You can also contact us and one of our friendly and expert staff members will get in contact with you as soon as possible. For more information on meeting the stringent Queensland pool fence regulations, head straight to the QLD Department of Housing and Public Works website.
Pool fences should always be well maintained to stop children from drowning or becoming seriously injured.
If there’s any damage to your pool fence, repair it immediately. If a part of the pool fence is missing, replace it. If a small part of the pool fence is damaged (e.g. latches, hinges or palings need replacing), you may repair it to the same standard as the existing fence. If you’re going to sell or lease the property, however, the fence should comply with the current standard.
Here’s why we’re Queensland’s choice for Glass Pool Fencing and Balustrades
As I mentioned on the telephone, I was impressed by the speed and efficiency with which the Aquavista team installed the job. They were approachable and easy to talk to. Once finished there was not a trace of any mess left behind – which is very rare. The product is great and certainly improves the look and feel of our pool and backyard.
We’ve been really impressed with the professionalism and speed of working with Aquavista Glass to have our frameless glass pool fence installed within a tight timeline. The quality of the glass and care from the installers has left us really impressed with the product and the finished result.
Aquavista have done a beautiful, professional job on our two glass pool fencing projects. They were very helpful from the design stage right through to installation, and co-operated with the pool builder to ensure the whole process went smoothly. We would be very happy to recommend them to anyone considering glass fencing.

I would like this opportunity to thank yourself, Matthew and the Installers for being so professional in your approach and the completion of this pool fence installation. I will be recommending your company to friends as the standard of install is testament to the high standard of workmanship provided. Thank you again.
Brian Cook, Scarborough
Since the installation of the glass balustrades, I have received many comments from owners and residents on how great they look and how vastly the view has been improved for looking out from our units over the bay. The design is excellent, with the one narrow strip of stainless steel near the top it gives an unimpeded view through the glass structure as if it was hardly there. From its looks and the great way it has improved our views, we would certainly recommend this product over other types of glass balustrade that we see in our area.
Roger Turner - Pacific Vista Body Corporate
We found the AVG team to be friendly, prompt, and efficient. Their expertise and attention to detail was beyond our expectations. I would recommend AVG to anyone wanting a high quality product with first class customer service. Thanks again for a great job!
Rob and Rebecca, Forest Lake
Not only was the product spot on, the design, layout drawing and installation instructions were spot on and it was a pleasure to deal with such a helpful business. Aqua Vista Glass went to “Nth” degree to ensure that the installations went smoothly.
C Dunford, Redland Bay
I have just built a new house and the service, price and product that Aqua vista glass provided was well above expectations. We purchased fencing as well as balustrade and both products definitely give a quality aspect to the house.
G Belcher, Carindale
Working with Aqua Vista Glass was the easiest of experiences. Aqua Vista Glass provide an excellent product and the company’s problem solving abilities, esp with tricky pool fence regulations was greatly appreciated. All my friends are envious, not only because our pool fence looks great, but they are amazed at the great price I paid.
We found Aqua Vista Glass to be a pleasure to deal with. They paid attention to detail and had pride in their workmanship and were prompt and punctual with their service. We were provided with a high quality pool fence that more that met our expectations.
B Biss, Mt. Gravatt East
The measurement and quotation process was straightforward and Aqua Vista Glass provided me with appropriate drawings and sample images so I understood what I was paying for and what it would look like. Their tradesmen arrived at the agreed time and day, completed the work in the advised period and cleaned up thoroughly before leaving.
The glass fencing looks great and I am completely happy with their service and product.

We have already told many people about your products and service and am sure they will contact you when they are ready to go ahead. Many thanks and best wishes.
Barry and Jill, Narangba
Matthew and his team were brought into our project from the design stage. They hung in with us through a number of changes, and offered practical suggestions for the various designs we came up with. Matthew even put us in touch with a couple of other “tradies” when we had no idea who to use. The completed job is fantastic and we would be more than happy to recommend Aqua Vista Glass to anyone who is looking for a glass company with great products and personal/professional service.
Sherelyn P, Runaway Bay
Aqua Vista (Water View) really lives up to its name, our pool was taken out of it’s 1980’s prison bars and given a new lease of life. It’s added great value to our home. The work was carried out quickly and the finish is exceptional. Thanks for the great job.
G Kyle, Sorrento
When we were shopping around for a pool fence it was hard enough trying to get someone to come out and see us, let alone to get the written quote. Aqua Vista Glass scores top marks on both accounts, plus we were told about a number of safety requirement that no-one else even mentioned. The quote came in quickly and the job was completed right on schedule.
It looks even better than we imagined, and it’s safe, safe, safe. Thanks.
T McCoy, Ascot
Value for money, Prompt, Reliable, Professional service, Good looking product.

R Flegg, Scarborough
I am really pleased with your service, you have got the best fencing products and a very good price. You have saved us money and time.
L Lee, Westlake
I appreciated the time and effort that you took to build a top quality fence that made our pool area not only safe for our twin 1 year old boys, but also made it look 10 times better than a steel fence.
P. Lupton, Warner
Aqua Vista Glass has a genuine understanding of customer service and knows how to run a business. Additionally, the staff seems happy to work for them which makes for a pleasant installation. They understands good design – they can provide valued input to the overall look, instead of just saying yes to anything the customer asked for (e.g. I wanted black but am now so glad I went for silver). Very good value product. Excellent communication. Never left chasing or wondering what’s happening.
Jacinta, Bridgeman Downs
We are extremely happy with the glass fence you supplied; it is of excellent quality and appearance. It was a refreshing change to deal with company who delivered prompt and reliable service. This was our first experience with the installation of glass fencing and we appreciated your helpful and expert advice. You gave us the time to ensure the best solutions for our project. We were pleased with the product, installation and its affordability.
We would highly recommend Aqua Vista Glass.
Mike & Claire, Daisy Hill
We utilised Aqua Vista Glass for our pool fencing and were extremely happy with the entire process, from quote, to installation. The finished product is exactly what we were after and exactly what Aqua Vista promised to supply and install. We would not hesitate in recommending Aqua Vista Glass to our family and friends, in fact, we have already done this.
A Kiloni, Wakerley
From first contact to completion, a most professional company. Installers were not only the most efficient, but Cleanest tradies I have ever had on the property. When they were gone they left only “Footprints”. Even the Enduroshield guy was impressed by installation. Now have neighbours trying to “Keep Up” and our smiles are brighter as we have our Christmas looking like a resort rather than a tired backyard pool. D Leverett (Newport QLD)
My pool fence was installed in 2009, and I thought they were great to deal with back then. However over the weekend our pool gate exploded! Quite scary! A call to the guys on Monday morning and today my new gate was fitted free of charge. This company knows the meaning of exceptional customer service!!! Thanks so much
