Advantages of a Juliet Balcony
Find out why we love Juliet Balconies and about our ARIA Juliet system
WHAT IS a Juliet Balcony?
Named after the famous scene from Romeo and Juliet, the Juliet Balcony is placed in-front of a window or first floor door. Allowing the window to open fully and transform into a balcony. You might have heard them called French Balconies or Faux Balcony. At Pure Vista, our system is called ARIA.
You can stand inside your home as if on a balcony, letting the fresh air in. Widely used throughout France and Italy, this style of balcony is increasing in popularity here in the UK.
Using two sides of channel which fix onto the wall around the window and a solid glass panel held between them.
Due to easy and quick installation, you can have a Juliet balcony complete within a very short amount of time.
Why we love Juliet Balconies
Juliet Balconies are a perfect way to increase light in your room. The use of a full length glass door massively increases the sunlight pouring into the room, the glass balcony will not obstruct this.
The solid glass panel is installed close to the wall of the house. This significantly reduces the chance of small items falling through a gap. The system is also strong and secure, tested to 0.74kN loading making it suitable for domestic installation.
3. Increased Ventilation
With a Juliet Balcony installed, you are more likely to have the door open more often. The flow of fresh air into your home will work wonders!
4. Subtle in appearance
The channel profiles used for a Juliet balcony are thin in comparison to traditional glass balustrade. They will not be seen from inside the room and are subtle enough to suit any property from the outside. They are available in a range of colours, raw Aluminium can even be powder coated to match any colour. At Pure Vista, the ARIA is supplied in Silver Brushed as standard, but is also available in Black and Anthracite Grey will be available soon.
In comparison to traditional balconies, the Juliet Style is much more cost-effective. Supplied in one compact box and delivered to you, this balcony system is popular for it’s simple storage. You will have a balcony without an extension. In most cases, you will not need planning permission for a Juliet Balcony, but please check with your local authority before work begins.
