Pool Balustrade

WHY CHOOSE ORIGIN ARCHITECTURAL FOR YOUR

Swimming Pool Balustrades

Need a swimming pool balustrade? Here at Origin we have a number of different products that can be used for balustrade around a swimming pool taht are safe and aesthetically pleasing. The key considerations in deciding which product to go for are safety, the look that you would prefer and maintenance.

Safety is our number one priority at Origin Architectural. It is important that any balustrade around any swimming pool forms an effective barrier. On request, test certification can be provided for a number of our systems.

Many of our customers prefer to opt for base clamps or base spigots. They give you that frameless look without using extruded aluminium channel. They can accommodate anything from 12mm to 17.5mm glass. The alternative is to opt for one of our extruded aluminium channel systems. They can be securely fixed to both concrete and to steel. The final option would be to go for a more traditional post and clamp system.

It is important to properly maintain your balustrade once it is installed. Chlorine can discolour or corrode any stainless steel fixings. Consideration should be given to using mirror polished components, particularly if your swimming pool is within 5 miles of the coast. All stainless steel fixings should be cleaned on a regular basis to remove any harmful residue.
