    Jump guard balustrades

    Hi,

    I see a lot of perspex/glass jump guards supported by neat looking stainless steel balustrades. Where do people get these balustrades from? I searched old threads and only managed to find an expired ebay link.

    Also I am interested in peoples opinion's on what is the best thickness perspex to get. If you have jump guards what thickness do you have and if you did it again would you change to thicker/thinner for any reason?

    Thanks

    We started to sell some pond jump guards but had to take a break for a while but back to offering the pond jump guards again if anyone is interested. I think this time ill just list them on eBay as easier to manage and see when people order or have questions.

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114793503678 for now just going to offer to type that being round post or square post options with flat end caps.

    For the corner posts are they all at 90 degrees, I have a curved front to my pond and ideally they could do to be at a slightly larger angle.
    If not I guess the rubber would allow a slight angle.
    (Yes I'm fussy) !

    We do another style of post that has a different type of glass clamp that will let you select just about any angle.

    Hi,

    I also need unusual angles so might have a look at these.

    I would rather avoid posts though if possible as I came across this thread https://www.koiforum.uk/pond-constru...r-pond-10.html (halfway down page 10) This is perspex just held by small clips at the bottom. I find it hard to believe that this would be secure enough so I am going to buy 2 clips and a sample piece of perspex to see how viable this is and how spaced the clips need to be. When you start pricing everything up it gets quite costly so I want to make sure I am happy before ordering the perspex. I will update this thread when I get my sample up and running.

    That does look OK. My only worry would be how secure it would be if there are and children around. The glass clamps are cheap enough to be fair they are about 10 each and if you used acrylic rather than toughened glass it might be OK. Downside to acrylic is it's easy to scratch.

    Regards,
    Andy
