Changing the way Pool Glass and Hardware is delivered across Australia
FGS are extremely proud to offer a new innovative method of delivery, for all pool products to anywhere within Australia. We realised that it can be difficult for our customers in more outlying areas to either have glass panels and hardware, either picked up by themselves or having them delivered. So FGS have come up with some amazing, recyclable packaging, that will hold glass panels and all of the hardware you will need to install a pool fence. This means that you will have the option to have your Pool package delivered either to your place of work or direct to your customers address.
The packaging has been designed to
- be recyclable
- hold upto 15 panels of 12mm to a max. size of 1200mm x 1450mm
- At this time we CANNOT offer to deliver larger panels through this method
- hold upto 28 miniposts
- hold your gate closer, pool latch and any other accessories
The packaging was designed by one FGS’s Engineers on CAD and was modified in conjunction with a leading packaging company. This has gone through several iterations to perfect the design, over a number of months. We then built several prototypes and shipped them around the country, including WA with no damage. This is a truly innovative design!
We are now working with several major freight companies, to work out the best and least cost method to get your Pool Package to you. We will also offer freight prices to deliver
- to an address with a forklift
- to an address where we will use a tail lift, which will cost a little more
Initially this system has been designed to deliver the FGS Pronto range of standard panels. However, we will be able to send full 1200mm custom glass panels, upto 1450mm wide, with the appropriate leadtime.

FGS’s Melbourne facility is one of the largest producers of processed glass in Australia. We have 8 CNC’s, Straight Line Edgers, Water Jets, 2 Toughening Plants and a fully automated paint line. We have just celebrated 2 years of DIFOT (Delivery In Full On Time) of over 99%, which is unheard of in the glass industry. We are also proud to say that 62.7% of our glass orders are delivered early. Our leadtimes are
- 5 days for processed glass
- 7 days for painted glass
But a lot is delivered ahead of these times.
