Recently we have announced that our prices will be increasing from late October 2021. The decision was made with reluctance and will be implemented because current market costs and conditions mean that higher material and supply-side costs will remain as the standard for the foreseeable time. We want to maintain the high quality of materials and services that have awarded our products their reputation so, price rises must occur to meet those aims.

Summer section winner announced
“Enjoying Nature’s Light Show”.
As the number of entries for our Summer Photo competition went into the hundreds, we knew we were going to have a tough time selecting a winner.
Celebrity Judge Gray Levett, of the prestigious ‘Grays of Westminster’ Nikon specialists, was also impressed with the quality of entries, and with good reason.
We ask all entrants to take a bow. We knew that Balconette customers have good taste, but you have done us proud.
The winner – Christopher Davis
Gray commented on the four finalists:
“Four excellent images. They all convey the advantages of having a Balconette product but I feel that Christopher Davis’ picture with its sweeping panorama of the countryside makes you want to own one oneself. Great image well composed and executed.”
Christopher receives our first segment award for the best summer photo, and an exhibition size print framed in a Royal Chrome identical finish to match his Balconette Aerofoil Balustrade.
Mr. Levett also asked for 2 runners-up to receive Special Commendations: “Daniel Young’s coastal castle subject is also good and ties in second for me, with Robin Lawson’s impressive sunset and the two wine glasses signalling a reflective evening ahead enjoying Nature’s light show.”
As we move into Autumn, we’re hoping you will be inspired to capture some more special images that show how our balconies help you to make the most of your view.

Our Sales and Technical design teams continue to work successfully from home and are fully functioning. This is working well and we will continue to operate like this until further notice or end of lockdown.
Over the lockdown period we have seen an increased number of customers wanting to improve their properties and we have been inundated with new enquiries. Our teams are very busy dealing with these new customer enquiries.
Our factory and manufacturing facilities are back to normal and at full capacity. We have adjusted our workspace in accordance with the Government guidelines and we are now working overtime to keep up with the lost time on production and to process new orders. Installation teams are operational, and most sites have now resumed.
Our Showroom is now OPEN on weekdays by appointment only and in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
Here are some important things we would like you to know:
- We have NOT laid anyone off.
- Almost all our staff (95%) have returned to work full time. We expect to be 100% by July.
- We have supported all our staff financially during this crisis.
- We are paying all our suppliers so that they can keep paying their staff
- Our sales team is fully functioning and is here to answer any of your questions.
- Orders and lead times are back to normal and unless you request otherwise, your order will flow straight to production once all approvals are received.
- Balconette is an established and very financially stable company with many years of successful trading. Feel free to check out our Companies House information and accounts: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/06937600
Lockdown has been a challenge and it has been a tough period, but we are proud of our country and NHS, especially as we have seen such great support from our customers.
We appreciate your support in keeping the flow of enquiries and orders coming in. Please continue to help us keep everyone busy and the economy flowing.
We are working towards continued safe easing of the lockdown and a further return to normal. We look forward to getting through this period together as a company and country.
