Glass Walled Pools
A glass walled pool is an exciting feature that sets a property apart from others.
The technical term for pool glass walls is open top windows. They retain the water in the pool while there seems to be no wall. Open top windows allow for spectators to watch the underwater scenery, while remaining dry.
- Open top windows are supported on three sides only. The top of the window is exposed.
- Open top windows have a polished and rounded top edge. You can look into the window block from the top the same way you do when looking from the side.
- Acrylic sidewalls can be combined with infinity edge pools, where the water overflows a transparent pool wall. Such a glass for infinity pools gives the impression of a vertically cut of body of water. Looking at such a window feels like an optical illusion!
- Wide panels of 6m and more can be archieved in various ways. The glazing can consist of a contious panel, chemically bonded panel, panels with sealant joints inbetween or panels with mullions. The Hydrosight engineering team will carefully evaluate the customers requirements and budget, but also temperature variations on site and panel deflection criteria.
To make an outstanding feature like a pool glass has always been a special challenge for Hydrosight. With more than 15 years of experience and hundreds of installations we have found the best solutions for almost any kind of situation. One of the most important aspects of our glass walls are the stainless steel frames. Without these frames it would be impossible for an untrained pool builder to install a glass wall. The installation time is shorter - a fact that should be taken into account when calculating the total cost of building. The frame itself is invisible to the client, once the pool is ready. The mounting of the glass is much more discrete than otherwise possible. Most importantly the Hydrosight system is more safe and longer lasting than any competitors solution.
