Black Juliet Balcony
POSIglaze side-fix Juliet Balcony Installation
Black POSIglaze Side-fix channel installed as Juliet balcony.
What is a Juliet Balcony? A glass Juliet balcony (also known as a French balcony) is a type of glass balustrade that is fitted to a first floor window, directly outside a set of inward-opening French doors, as a safety feature. A Juliet balcony creates a feeling of space within the room, as well as allowing more light and fresh air into the room than could be achieved with a regular window. All within a secure and stylish translucent framework.
This beautiful installation by Terry Lisgo and his G&T Design & Build Team, features two Juliet balconies on one property in Cheshire March 2022. The home owner didn’t want any handrails blocking their view, so 17.5mm toughened laminated glass has been used as this eliminates the need for the extra safety measure. Toughened laminated glass has a layer between the glass sheets which adds strength, removing the need for a handrail.
To pass building regulations, the glass must be 1100mm high across these Juliet balconies. If you’ve ever been involved in a building project, you’ll know that elements must be signed off before the next building phase can begin.
The black Juliet Balconies look stunning with the matching windows and French doors and have fulfilled the customer brief perfectly.
POSIglaze side-fix balustrade channel is able to hold glass thickness between 12mm and 21.5mm. and is suitable for many projects and balcony styles. The cladding is the black element used to make the channel look black, simply clipped on to the channel it transforms the look from silver to black balustrade.
Pure Vista’s POSIglaze frameless glass balustrade system is available in a side fixed option. This means the balustrade channel can be fixed underneath the French doors or windows. With the right glass counterpart no handrail is required, providing uninterrupted exterior views plus a clean architectural finish. To make the appearance of your balustrade black, please purchase the black side cladding.
