Glass balconies for the olympic village

Started over two years ago the development of over 600 apartments is nearing completion at the “Crossharbour” suite in East London.

The site is part of the redevelopment of East London in preparation for the 2012 Olympics due to take place in London that summer.

Balcony Systems was involved in the supply of over 4500 meters of their unique glass railing system and a special facia solution for the balcony structure.

Over 6 different special aluminium profiles were specifically extruded for this project. Handrails were finished in Balcony’s proprietary handrail finish called “Royal Chrome” which the architects found extremely pleasing.

The fascia were finished in a metallic anodize colour that uses a special method to break the light giving it a blue-grey colour.

The glass railing were required to use laminated toughened glasses so the balconies conform to both European and British standards:
