If you have pool fencing that doesn’t comply with the laws, children below the age of 5 could accidentally drown in your pool. To prevent young children from drowning and ensure their safety and wellbeing, you must abide by the regulations set in your state and take preventative measures. The laws on pool fencing discussed here only apply to Queensland, as they’re different in other states and territories.
As of 30 November 2015, all pool fences should comply with current pool safety laws, such as:
New pool fences must comply with the current standard. You don’t need a building development approval where:
What’s more, all the glass pool panels we make undergo a strict quality testing process to make sure they meet and exceed national safety regulations. If you’re interested and want to find out more, you can browse our other ranges to see what Trade Glass Depot has to offer. You’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for. You can also contact us and one of our friendly and expert staff members will get in contact with you as soon as possible. For more information on meeting the stringent Queensland pool fence regulations, head straight to the QLD Department of Housing and Public Works website.
If there’s any damage to your pool fence, repair it immediately. If a part of the pool fence is missing, replace it. If a small part of the pool fence is damaged (e.g. latches, hinges or palings need replacing), you may repair it to the same standard as the existing fence. If you’re going to sell or lease the property, however, the fence should comply with the current standard.
We are extremely happy with the end result. It is just how my wife and I had pictured it. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the time you took to assist me from the beginning to the end. You are true professionals. I would highly recommend Trade Glass Depot to anyone.

I ordered on Tuesday, and everything arrived Thursday morning in perfect condition. Well packed, everything I needed, good price, good service. Looking forward to using you again on my next project.
We were buying our glass and spigots from another supplier, but getting stock to our jobs on time started to become a real problem for us. We have been buying our materials from Trade Glass Depot since the beginning of the year and all our orders have arrived on time and in full.
