Monaco - Residential Enviroments - Max Height 1300mm

MONACO is very similar to our LUGANO system, MONACO is designed to take higher loads than LUGANO and is the best system to use for commercial projects.

Key Features

 - MONACO is an aluminium system for fascia fixed balustrades. It reflects the trend for sleek flush surfaces, square edges and continuous sightlines.

 - MONACO creates a seamless blend. When standing on the deck all you see is glass spanning up from the edge of the deck.

 - All the fixings are concealed beneath the face plate which can be powder coated any colour to blend in with the building structure.


 - Compliant with NZBC clause E2. The MONACO base channel is face fixed and sits 25mm off the substrate. Compressed EPDM fixing sealing washers are easily located against the substrate.

 - Balustrades for External Decks and Stairwells

 - Balustrades for Internal Decks, Stairwell, Landings and Mezzanine Floors

 - Concrete
