One of the latest trends in modern backyard design is frameless polycarbonate fencing. For homeowners, architects and builders, polycarbonate fencing offers attractive benefits as a unique safety and is less expensive then glass barrier options. It is quickly growing in popularity as a stylish alternative to traditional wood, iron, mesh, and aluminum fences as well. Aside from its beautiful aesthetic, polycarbonate fencing also has plenty of practical benefits as well as important safety features when used as a pool barrier since Polycarbonate is unbreakable.
Deciding whether to invest in a polycarbonate for your pool fence? Consider these 9 benefits:
1. Keep children and pets safe
A polycarbonate pool fence will prevent children and pets from accessing the pool unsupervised, giving you peace of mind. Climb-resistant panels allow clear views to monitor the pool area, and gates have self-closing latches and hinges. Engineered to meet pool code requirements, polycarbonate is 250 times stronger then traditional glass.
2. Enhance the visual appeal of your backyard
Elegant and modern, polycarbonate fencing offers security without sacrificing style. Its simplicity in design and luxurious appearance sets it apart from wood, iron, and aluminum fencing. This is definitely an attractive addition to any pool, patio, deck, garden or terrace.
3. Maintain clear unobstructed views
Frameless polycarbonate fencing is constructed with polycarbonate panels held in place by stainless steel clamps. It is nearly invisible, providing clear unobstructed views and a seamless flow from indoor to outdoor space. The perfect choice for any location when you want the security benefits of a fence without blocking the view.
4. Increase your property value
More than a simple home improvement, polycarbonate fencing is an investment that adds value to your property. It transforms any deck, patio, or terrace into an elegant focal point that looks like it should belong in a lifestyle magazine. For those looking to buy and flip homes, frameless polycarbonate fencing is a no-brainer.
5. Maximize your space
Polycarbonate fencing creates the illusion of more space, making your yard appear much larger than it is. This makes it an excellent option for homes with smaller backyards. Designers and architects can take advantage of this stylish, versatile, and unique safety product.
6. Easy to maintain
This may surprise you, but polycarbonate fencing is actually one of the easiest types of fencing to maintain. Resistant to corrosive environments around pools, spas and oceans, it will not rust or rot over time. To clean, simply wipe down with soapy water every 8 weeks. No painting, staining, replacement, or upkeep required.
7. Durable and built to last a lifetime
Polycarbonate sheets is a material with an excellent combination of physical and mechanical properties, which are retained under various temperature conditions and humidity levels. Polycarbonate sheets are an ideal replacement for traditional glazing materials. They are safe and easy to cut, install and use, and are almost impossible to break. Due to their low specific weight, polycarbonate sheets can significantly lighten and reduce the cost of the supporting structure in comparison with the structure in which glass is used, contributing to a significant reduction in transportation, handling and installation costs.
Solar radiation has a detrimental effect on polymeric materials, causing destruction and surface cracking of materials. These small cracks are further enlarged by water, dust and chemicals. Our Polycarbonate monolithic sheets have an applied protective layer on the surface, which provides excellent resistance to weathering and protection against damaging ultraviolet radiation.
All of our monolithic polycarbonate sheets are cold-formed into curved supporting glazing profiles. Provided that the bending radius of the sheet is greater than the minimum recommended value, the mechanical stress resulting from cold forming will not affect the mechanical properties of the sheet. As previously stated, it is 250 times stronger than traditional standard glass, while weighing only half as much, for easy maneuvering and installation.
8. Custom designs to fit any layout
Another great benefit of polycarbonate fencing is its versatility in footprint and design. Panels are easy to cut, install and use, with almost any size and shape, and are almost impossible to break.
9. Easy to install
Polycarbonate fencing is not difficult to install, and most skilled licensed contractors can do it. It does not require highly specialized tools, except those suited for the surface where the clamps are to be placed (for example, a core drill for working with concrete or tile).
Considering these great benefits, it’s no surprise that an increase of homeowners are choosing to install frameless polycarbonate fencing in their backyards. It is an investment that adds elegant style, enhances child safety, and boosts the resale value of your home.
