Proving you are never too old for DIY in your seventies, Barry Hazard installed this beautiful 14-metre-long Balconette balustrade on the back of a new kitchen extension with a little help from his wife Ann.
“Everything fitted perfectly. It took a week to install by myself – partly due to the weather – and with a little assistance from my wife. Not bad for a first-time fitter of 70+,” he says.

With an almost-there appearance, you’d be forgiven for thinking that a Frameless Glass balustrade is less substantial than a framed balustrade system. After all, where the system is recessed below the floor the lack of obvious structure makes these glass railings look unsupported. But that’s not the case. Every Balconette Frameless Glass balustrade is supported by a combination of anodised aluminium base shoe and laminated glass.

With more of us spending an increasing amount of time at home, further emphasis has been placed on how we can maximise space and daylight in our living spaces. Not surprisingly, external balconies and Juliet Balconies have attracted rising levels of interest. So, how do you use a Juliet Balcony?
A glass Juliet Balcony is a wonderful and cost-effective way to enhance light, space and views in virtually any type of building. From larger commercial and communal projects, such as retail developments, restaurants and retirement homes to family homes and flats, there is a Juliet Balcony to suit any scheme.
For James Letts and his wife Jane it is the ‘freedom of the view’ that they like best about their Balconette Frameless Juliet balcony overlooking their garden at their newbuild home near Market Drayton, Shropshire.
The 1,860mm Frameless Juliet uses Royal Chrome anodised support profiles for its single 21.5mm laminated toughened clear glass panel. It protects first-floor French Doors in their bedroom that has extensive views to the Shropshire countryside and Welsh hills in the far distance.
