DOMESTIC CURVED BALCONY
DOMESTIC CURVED BALCONY INSTALLATION IN CORNWALL
Contemporary architecture often uses curved profiles to create a clean architectural finish, so there is a growing market for domestic curved balcony balustrade.
When a homeowner in Cornwall approached us looking for a curved glass balustrade for their home, we were happy to provide a couple of solutions using one of our patented glass balustrade systems.
Pure Vista proposed two solutions for this domestic curved balustrade project in Cornwall, both using our ORIGIN-R balustrade system. ORIGIN-R is appropriate for domestic balconies because it achieves 1.5kN, the building regulation that applies to potentially dangerous drops in domestic, single use properties. It is also the only Pure Vista balustrade channel that can manufactured as a curved profile making it the best solution for a curved installation.
The most aesthetically pleasing option for a curved installation is using curved glass inside a curved ORIGIN-R channel however, this requires the system to be wet-glazed, something that the customer in this case decided against. As an alternative to the wet-glazed curved solution, we proposed, and ultimately supplied, a faceted curve balustrade solution using straight sections of channel with mitre joints to follow the curved line of the balcony.
The installation itself was taken care of by Camel Glass who are specialist architectural glass installers, also based in Cornwall.
