Lugano: Pool Fence & Wind Break

Our Lugano Pool Fence system is our most popular cantilevered frameless glass pool fence.

Key Features

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

 - LUGANO 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.

 - The LUGANO base channel is face fixed and sits 25mm off the substrate. This creates a cavity for water to run off the floor surface to egress away from the pool or spa enclosure


 - LUGANO can be attached to most standard building materials. i.e. timber, concrete, steel and weather boards.

 - Internal and External Pool Fences
