Milano Pool Fence: Pool Fence & Wind Break

MILANO is a frameless full height post system where the top and bottom edges of the glass are exposed.

MILANO can be used as a pool fence or as a wind break.


Unlike other systems our MILANO posts can be fixed up to 2350mm apart which reduces the amount posts required across the deck (MILANO post locations are based on the wind zone).

Key Features

- MILANO posts can be face or floor mounted (most pool fences are floor mounted).

 - Large post fixing spans – please refer to our technical data sheets.

 - No need for corner posts, the glass can span horizontally through the end post. The maximum overhang of glass is 500mm.


 - No holes or notches are required. The glass is clamped to the post.

Scope of Use

MILANO is designed to be used as;

 - Internal and External Pool Fences

- Wind Breaks

Milano can be attached to the following substrates;

 - Concrete
