Quantum Square Spigot

Our frameless glass installations are all designed around the absolute highest quality materials available, both structurally and technically…

Glass FX are unique in that we source an exclusive and superior spigot designed in Australia – the Quantum Spigot.

Quantum balustrade and pool fencing spigots are made of the strongest materials available, Marine Grade Duplex 2205 Stainless Steel.

They are designed to be core-drilled into a concrete footing, often through pavers or tiles.

A major benefit and improvement in the Quantum Spigot is their unique tightening design, which means that they clamp down on the glass with more strength and integrity than the cheaper more common ‘grub screw’ spigots used by nearly all other glass fence installers.

The entire inner area of the Quantum Spigot clamps down onto the glass, whereas with the grub screw spigots only two small screws press onto a small plate within the spigot which presses onto and ‘holds’ the glass in place. Glass can and frequently does move and ‘sag’ in these cheaper spigots, meaning that your fence levels and lines do not stay fixed over time. This really impacts negatively on the aesthetics of frameless glass, and requires repeated services over time to rectify your fence line.

Quantum Spigots also have a deeper glass recess than the grub screw spigots so hold a higher percentage of glass within the spigot – which is optimum for strength and security from an engineering perspective.

Quantum Spigots come with a lifetime structural warranty.

The Quantum Spigot also has a unique visual design, for those people who prefer to have something a bit different to the crowd.

It is available in the bold Square shape  Quantum Square Spigot   or the elegant Diamond shape Quantum Diamond Spigotboth of which look striking when installed. See our photo gallery or Facebook page for some examples.

It comes in your choice of either a matte, brushed metal finish or a polished, mirror finish. Your chosen finish generally will be applied across all of your hardware; your Quantum Spigots, your POLARIS Soft Close Hinge and any top capping, clips or hand rail you may also be having installed.

What we have come to know through our years of experience is that quality really does matter. The quality of your frameless glass hardware directly relates to the longevity and integrity of your pool fence or balustrade for years to come. This is why we use Quantum Spigots wherever we are able.

Where you are fixing onto timber or steel beams, rather than using a grub screw base-mounted spigot, which has a flange that is screwed into decking, we prefer to use the Quantum Spigot with the specially designed Quantum Deck Fixed Bracket which essentially allows for the strength and accuracy of a core drill install on timber decking.

By combining the use of the highest quality spigot and the highest quality hinge, Glass FX are ensuring that your pool fence looks and functions at its best for the maximum product lifespan available.

This is our professional commitment to quality.

Common Grub Screw Spigots

common-grub-screw-spigots
Here the common spigot is installed on glass and has slipped (the plastic insert moves and bunches) and spread (the metal actually bends away from the glass as it is tightened) the glass is held in place by small grub screws that push onto the glass.

We have had to service this fence for the client as the glass panel has dropped in the spigot, numerous times over years, which has then prevented the gate from closing reliably.

Above is a photo of our preferred and superior Quantum Spigot, which you can clearly see clamps down on the glass in a much better design. The entire surround of the spigot clamps down on the glass and distributes the force across the glass surface.

After just two years, a glass panel smashed for no reason, not even a hot day. No willful damage as we were overseas and no-one home at the time. Company didn’t reply to two emails and finally when i called, they said nothing they can do about it. Very disappointing to pay so much money and have this happen. I have since called two other companies that will replace it & give a warranty on breakage.

Yes! As promised the pool fence was installed only days before Christmas 2013 🙂 I was happy with everyone I dealt with including the sales team, installers and accounts. I will definitely use Glass Effects again in the future. They were competitive with pricing too. Our frameless glass pool fence looks great. Thanks again.
