Milano Posts for Commercial Occupancy Types B,E,C3

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

Unlike other residential glass post systems, Milano posts are fixed every 1650mm apart which reduces the amount posts required across the deck. A Euroglass MILANO system also doesn't need any corner posts. The glass corners neatly butt together to create a seamless look.

  • Maximum spacing between the posts is 1650mm
  • No need for corner posts, the glass can span horizontally through the end post. The maximum overhang of glass is 500mm

  • Anotec powder coated with a 10 year warranty. There are many powder coat colours to choice from to match the colour scheme
