Inspired by the Olympics? Why not dive into your new pool?

The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio have recently come to a close, with the Australian contingent performing particularly well in the pool. Claiming 3 gold medals is a fantastic effort, even for a team with the lofty expectations and weight of the nation on their broad shoulders.

As is the case with the majority of major sporting events around the world, watching athletes bring home the gold from the comfort of the lounge room, often sparks a fire in the belly, which gets us up off the couch and into a mindset that would inspire our beloved Bruce McAveney to describe as: DELICIOUS!

Despite the fact joining the Aussies in the green and gold for Tokyo 2020 could be a tall order for even the most dedicated swimmers, you can now perfect your backstroke in the comfort of your own backyard with the help of a lap pool, designed just like a racing lane.

A backyard swimming pool is perfect for you if you love the water or are interested in a low-impact workout that delivers outstanding endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. But where should you start before diving head first into a backyard pool project?

Take a look at the latest piece on Houzz, which features the amazing work from Melbourne’s Premier Frameless Glass Pool Fencing Company, Frameless Impressions.

There’s much more than meets the eye when planning your backyard swimming pool. Work out how it fits into your overall lifestyle, how much deck space you really need for all those summer BBQs and family events, and how the style of the pool reflects that of your home itself. Even a small lap pool does not stand in isolation, so think about a matching deck area, maybe an outdoor dining space for some entertaining evenings with friends, and of course, your frameless glass pool fencing, which will be the icing on the cake of your brand new backyard swimming spot.

If you have any questions about to transform your backyard into an enjoyable, entertaining outdoor space, speak with the experts at Frameless Impressions who can guide you on everything from finding the ideal pool contractors, to which fencing options not only support the necessary safety requirements, but also compliments the look and feel of your entire outdoor space.

How to Keep Kids Safe Around Pools and Spas

Despite the fact winter is well and truly upon us here in Victoria, now would be the perfect time to consider evaluating the safety of your pool or spa, in particular the safety barrier that separates you, your friends and family from the potential dangers of drowning.

In Australia, it goes without saying, we love the water, but that certainly doesn’t save us from the harsh realities of an alarming national increase in drowning deaths, particularly of young children in backyard pools and spas.

The Royal Life Saving Society’s annual drowning report recorded 271 deaths due to drowning last year, with 26 of those of preschool-aged. That was a 30 per cent increase on the 20 young children who died in the previous year, representing one in 10 drowning deaths.
Our friends over at houzz.com.au have put together a comprehensive list of the BEST ways to improve the safety of your loved ones around pools and spas.

Pool Fencing Rules in Victoria
All swimming pools and spas on residential properties in Victoria with a depth greater than 30cm (300mm) are required to be surrounded by a safety barrier (e.g. a pool fence).

  • If a Victorian residential pool or spa has a depth of 30cm or more (300mm), it is required to be surrounded by safety barrier. This includes inflatable pools.
  • All pools and spas built after 2010 require a four sided barrier (isolation fence), with no direct access from the house or any other building to the pool or spa.
  • Safety barriers must be a minimum of 1.2 metres high.
  • Barrier gates must be self-closing and self-latching.
  • It is illegal to leave a pool or spa gate propped open.
  • Climbable objects such as pot plants, eskies, pool pumps and chairs must be moved away from the barrier.

Have you found an issue with your pool safety, or simply need to upgrade the look and feel of your pool fence? If you have, we would love to here from you at Frameless Impressions, Melbourne’s leading supplier of frameless pool fences. Please get in touch with us today by calling 1300 769 993

Frameless shower screens deliver a sleek and simple design in an area of the home that frequently appears crowded as it is typically limited in space. The option is ideal for remodels as well as for bathroom renovations that require a modernized appearance. Since frameless shower screens are a popular feature of upscale resorts and spas, your home’s bathroom will gain this high-end look when you install one.

A frameless shower screen is self-supported. As a result, a small amount of hardware is used to connect the panels. This design makes the shower easy to clean. With limited hardware, you can avoid the struggle of matching the metal type to your bathroom’s other fixtures, which increases your styling choices. The fixture option is also more hygienic because glass is a nonporous material that does not support the growth of bacteria or germs.

How much will a Frameless Shower Screen Cost?

The cost for a frameless shower screen ranges from $900 to $2,800. The biggest factor in determining cost is size as well as your customizing needs. The type of glass that you select will also affect your cost. Frameless shower screens are made out of thicker glass than framed versions. This means that they require precise manufacturing and special installation hardware.

Frameless Shower Screen Designs

The Euroglide Inline Frameless Shower Screen comes with unique operating features that are combined with contemporary styling. It has two stainless steel rollers that slide to permit entry. The sliding feature replaces the classic pivot door that is included with many shower screen designs, so with this option, you’ll gain extra space since pivot doors take up more room.

The Euroglide Corner Frameless Shower Screen provides the same entry alternative, but this model has three panels and is designed for corner shower spaces.

A Fixed Panel Frameless Shower Screen is the best design choice for a simple bathroom layout. This option does not have hinges, and it will be attached to just one side of your shower wall.

When your shower and bathtub are combined, the best frameless glass shower screen design is the Fix and Swing option because the style comes with a stationary panel that is connected to a hinged section.

The Inline Slider Frameless Screen is a good choice for wall-to-wall showers. With an Inline Slider Screen, you’ll enter the shower through one sliding door entrance. The door opens easily since it comes with a sliding mechanism that is manufactured with precision.

If you’re planning a bathroom renovation, then consider installing a Corner Hinged Frameless Shower Screen. It features two side panels that are placed in the corner of your bathroom. Different sizes are available, and you can even order a screen for a double sized shower.

Small bathroom spaces will function effectively with a Corner Slider Frameless Shower. It requires little space and has a sliding entrance panel to give you more room.

Options and Accessories 

Glass options include frosted, tinted and antiglare. If you select a toughened safety glass, then the style will create a modern look for your bathroom while frosted and tinted glass provide a higher degree of privacy. However, frosted and tinted glass can make your bathroom appear smaller because they disturb the area’s visual flow. Soap residue may also be more apparent on these types of glass.

Once you decide to install a frameless shower screen, you can select the fittings for the fixture. Options include hinges, opening grips and other attachment pieces that feature different finishes like powder coating, polished brass, gold plated or chrome plated. There are also a variety of opening grip styles to choose from for your screen. For instance, you can select a small knob or a large pull handle.

Accessories such as rectangular, curved or triangular shaped shelves are also available. Shower shelves are handy for storing soap, shampoo and body scrubbing equipment. Consider treating your shower glass with a product called Enduroshield to decrease the amount of time you spend cleaning it by up to 90 percent.

Installation

Professional installation is the best way to make sure that your frameless shower screen is put in properly. Frameless Impressions, a professional frameless glass company in Melbourne will measure the length and width of the shower space before ordering the product’s glass and hinges. They will also check your walls for piping before starting the install to avoid damage. A professional installation crew can attach frameless shower screens to a tile or shower base. Once you order your shower screen, it should be in place within 10 to 14 days.

If you decide to install the fixture yourself, then you will need a measuring tape, drill and silicone. Keep in mind that you cannot attach the fittings or the hinges directly to the glass. Instead, use rubber or plastic spacers. Measure several times before drilling. Also, after you’ve placed the glass panels and added silicone around them, allow the attaching substance to dry for 48 hours before using the shower. With proper installation, a frameless shower screen can last for years and will not leak.

Ensuring Quality Materials

For safety, confirm that your frameless shower screen is made from toughened glass. Also, be sure to order a screen manufactured from glass that is at least 3/8ths of an inch thick as this is the minimum width that can provide secure and quality construction. This glass thickness is also more affordable. If your budget allows, then consider ordering a frameless shower screen that is made from 1/2-inch thick glass since this thickness level will give you the highest available degree of structural integrity and stability. In fact, businesses generally use this thickness level for their storefronts, which are also exposed to exterior elements. It gives your bathroom a high-end look and provides a sturdy feel.

Durability is one of the most important considerations in purchasing a frameless screen because your home’s shower can be slippery. If you slip in the shower and put a small amount of pressure against the screen, then it should be strong enough to support you.

Maintenance 

Before purchasing a shower screen, review its maintenance requirements. Shower screens are exposed to water, shampoo and soap. As a result, they accumulate grime and debris. Shower screens must be cleaned regularly, so make sure that you purchase one that will be easy to maintain as this will keep your bathroom looking elegant and in good working order. Keep in mind that these types of screens are easier to maintain than screens made from other materials.

Getting a Quote 

A frameless shower screen will give your bathroom a look that is open and refined. The fixture is also safer than other options because a properly installed glass shower screen will decrease the amount of water that splashes out of the bathing area and onto the bathroom floor.
