Glass swimming pool barriers

February 07, 2019

The Australian Standard AS1926.1 - Safety Barriers for Swimming pools, does not provide explicit deemed to satisfy construction details for glass swimming pool barriers.

Glass swimming pool barriers need to be designed to meet section 3 of AS1926.1 - Loading requirements, as well AS 1288 - Glass in buildings, section 7 for the glazing components and AS 1170 Part 2 Wind actions. This will determine the size and thickness of the glass panel, the design and type of the connection between panels and the connection to the ground/footing through the stainless steel support brackets. As such building designers and builders may wish to seek the advice of a structural engineer for the design of glass swimming pool barriers.
