With stunning far-reaching vistas over the Gower Peninsula, this custom-made oak frame and Balconette Glass Balustrade is perfect for relaxing and watching the sunset. No wonder that homeowner Malcolm Arnall wishes he had installed it 10 years go.
Originally thinking of a stainless-steel balustrade to replace an existing Juliet wrought iron balcony, Malcolm trusted his local builder and fellow rugby club member Francis Cahill to devise a solution for a ‘walk-out’ external balcony to make the most of spectacular views.
The oak frame and Balconette Aerofoil Glass Balustrade system with Balconette’s proprietary Royal Chrome finish anodised handrail was installed by Francis in June 2020.
Measuring seven metres in total, the three-sided balustrade was thoughtfully designed to make the most of the system’s capabilities. The Aerofoil system, with its stylish wing-shaped handrail, allows for runs of up to four metres without the need for posts when fixed between walls. Amending its planned size by just 50mm has created an elegant, post-less balcony.
