Glass Walled Pools

At Hydrosight we distinguish between underwater windows and glass walls. A pool glass wall is a special underwater window. It is called glass wall as it replaces part of the pool sides. There is no support beam on the top, it is all transparent. The top of the window is just an exposed polished glass edge. So to keep the glass in place the window is mounted from the sides and also from the bottom.

This gives the visual impression, that there is not a wall at all: The pool water just ends vertically. You can look deep into the water from the outside without the distortions that you have on the water surface. And it is just a perfect shot for your Instagram when you see a swimmer behind the glass wall - partly submerged, partly above the water.

A glass walled is an exciting pool feature that sets your swimming pool apart from others.

A stunning effect can be achieved with a glass wall without top reinforcement. The pool seems to glow in the dark thanks to the underwater lights.

Support

For Glass Walled Pools there are various types of support arrangements. Make sure you enquire Hydrosight for the shell dimensions before starting construction.

Overflow

If the window top and water level meet, we obtain an overflow window. That means the water can run off the edge of the window.

If the water level is lower then the top edge it is called a skimmer glass wall.

The acrylic side wall can be installed with or without overflow. Overflow in this context means, that the water runs over the edge of the glazing into a drainage. The top of the glazing - as the rest of the infinity pool - sits flush with the water level.

How to Install?

Planing and Preparation

For each of your window requests, Hydrosight will provide the technical drawings needed for the concrete work of the pool, i.e. the opening for the window. This allows you to plan accordingly on the installation and/or construction procedure.

In the meantime, the windows will be produced. They shall be ready for shipment just when you need them on the site.
