Black spigots and matching black glass pool fencing hardware has become the most popular choice in finish in 2020. Once only available in polish and satin finishes, powder coated matt black spigots are now dominating the glass pool fencing and glass balustrade industry.
Pairing black powder coated spigots with other black hardware such as black handrails, black hinges and black gate latches has allowed our customers to match their glass pool fence and glass balustrades with existing dark tones and shades that exist on their property. Previously this has not been possible and the end result can be truly amazing when executed properly.
We have four types of spigots available in black, base plated, top fix, core drilled and face mount.
These four types of spigots are all suited to different types of glass pool fencing applications.
