“50% of Deposits to be donated to NHS Charity”

balcony covid19

In this time of adversity where unprecedented disruption has affected all of us, looking out for our neighbour has never been more important.

The COVID-19 situation has put an enormous strain on the NHS and, at Balconette, we want to contribute whatever we can to the alleviation of this situation.

Sach charitySo we thought, what can be done to help?

  • Help the NHS
  • Help the customer, and
  • Help our remote workforce keep busy

And we have come up with an idea that can help all three. Very simple really.

  • Place your order now
  • Pay a reduced deposit amount – 50% of which we will donate
  • Get it designed by our remote-working technical team, drawn up and ready to go into production!

From 2nd April 2020, Balconette will donate 50% of the value of all order deposits received to the SASH Charity (Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust) which will benefit the Trust’s preparations in gearing-up for increased patient numbers.

Over this same period, deposits on all Balconette orders (for Glass balustrades, Custom-sized Glass Juliet balconies or Curved Glass Doors) have been reduced to 10% and can be paid by Credit Card.

We will contribute all charitable donations to SASH at no extra cost to you, the customer.

How does this work?

  • To assist you in placing an order with our Sales team, from 2nd April you will only need to pay a 10% deposit to confirm your order.
  • Of your 10% deposit, half of this (50%) will be donated immediately to the NHS through SASH, supporting the East Surrey Hospital Trust.
  • If you choose to pay a larger deposit, 5% of the total value of your order (excluding delivery and VAT) will be donated to this initiative.

Tracking your order

Balconette is focused on the safety of our customers and our staff. Our Sales and Technical design teams, while fully-functioning, are working individually from home and we are operating a skeleton crew in our manufacturing facility so that urgent orders can still be processed.

  • When you place your order, we will process it right through the technical phase to signed drawings.
  • We will evaluate with you if it’s possible to manufacture your order and, based on each individual situation, we will advise on best options.
  • Otherwise, upon our factory returning to normal operation, we will be working double shifts to get your order immediately into production.

We look forward to speaking to you soon, and we thank you for helping us to help the NHS.

  • Our sales team will be fully functional working from home and is still here to answer any of your questions.
  • Deposits on new orders during this period have been reduced to 10% and can be paid by Credit Card.
  • During this period, when you place your order, we will process it right through the technical phase and to the point of agreed drawings.
  • We will evaluate with you, the customer, if you are able to receive your order at this time and if it’s possible to complete the manufacture. Based on each individual situation, we can advise on best options. Otherwise, upon the factory returning to normal operation, your order will go straight into production.
  • 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:

UK Regulations

glass balustrades fittings

There is some confusion regarding the requirement for a handrail on glass balustrades and glass railings and in order to ascertain this matter we need to get the answer to the following question: What are the legal or regulatory requirements in respect of handrails on glass balustrades? Are there criteria that allow glass barriers to have no handrail on top?
