Monaco: Pool Fence & Wind Break

A MONACO Pool Fence is a very popular cantilevered frameless glass barrier system.


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 pool fences with large glass spans (heights) or wind breaks that require thicker glass.

Key Features

 - MONACO is an aluminium system for fascia fixed pool fences and wind breaks. 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.


 - The MONACO 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.

Scope of Use

MONACO is designed to be used as;

 - Internal and External Pool Fences

-Wind Break

MONACO can be attached to the following substrates;

 - Concrete

 - Timber

 - Steel

 - Weather boards

MONACO complies with the New Zealand building code and glazing standards used in conjunction with the following Viridian Glass types and Euroglass systems;

-          Viridian's toughened safety glass

-          Viridian's toughened laminated safety glass with Euroglass gap clamps

-          SENTRYGLAS® incorporated with a Euroglass System offers a pure clean and clear traditional frameless barrier
