Stunning curved fenestration elements, supplied by Balconette, take full advantage of panoramic sea views at Art Deco-inspired seafront house at East Lothian on the north-east Scottish coast. Curved glass doors and windows open up the sea views, while letting in a lot of light. Master bedroom curved windows follow the shape of the building and also allow in much natural light. With the curved doors, there’s no interruption to the view and they’re fantastic when opened up on a sunny day.

Adding a curved sliding patio door to their Victorian home in Epping Forest has added impact, opened up views to the garden and created a highly-valued new living space for Nick Bowman and his partner Anne.

Fed up with a lack of natural light in their kitchen and a conservatory that suffered from temperature extremes, the couple decided to demolish the conservatory and back wall to build an extension incorporating a 7.19 metre-wide curved sliding door supplied and installed by Balconette.

Architects and designers are always looking for inspiration and fresh ideas or just to add a whole new perspective to their next projects. One way of achieving this is to use curved instead of straight glass to create stunning visual impact.

Balcony Systems Ltd has now made this possible with the introduction to the UK market of its range of innovative and affordable curved glass sliding patio doors that visibly add the ‘Wow’ factor to any property. Amazing breakthroughs in both technology and design have made curved sliding patio doors readily available for wider use and at prices that won’t bust the budget. Considerable investment and technological advances in the product’s development have opened up exciting new options to architects, enabling them to plan curved door designs with confidence.

Balcony’s curved patio doors are sold in many countries on three continents. Their arrival in the UK is creating growing interest in a specialist solution that literally opens up new and exciting creative possibilities never seen before on the British market.

Panoramic views

As a beautiful, value-adding and light-enhancing addition to any property, curved glass can be used to great effect for doors or in place of bow
windows, eliminating the need for segmentation. A curved door is perfect for making the most of panoramic views. It also lets in more light than a ‘conventional’ straight patio door.

Suitable for all types of properties, the system offers complete flexibility as there are virtually no limitations to what can be achieved for curved openings in any radius, any colour and any size. Manufactured from twin polyamide thermallybroken 6063 T5 extruded aluminium profiles, the doors can accommodate toughened glass double glazed units up to 28mm thick.

Thermally-efficient, durable and secure, all doors feature multi-point locking as standard and can be specified up to maximum heights of 2.6 metres. How many panels you choose is up to you as the system allows for configurations of two, three, four and six panels in various sliding and fixed combinations.

The system is also straightforward to install, whether as part of a refurbishment or newbuild project, as feedback from our customers has shown. Balcony offers a full technical advice and back-up service, along with a step-by-step installation guide on the website.

Balcony Systems Ltd have invested in an innovative online quotation and ordering system on their website, making budgeting easier for all sizes of projects. Simply choose your preferred system and then search the curved patio door options for the suitable product and model type that meets your requirement. Click on the selected product, enter the data required and then click calculate.

Distinctive statement

Making a distinctive statement at an affordable price, curved doors make a dramatic difference to both the external appearance and enjoyment of the property. They’re also quite a talking point, asmany Balcony customers will testify!

Installing a curved door from an open-plan firstfloor kitchen opening onto a corner dining terrace was the ideal solution for Buckinghamshire selfbuilders Greg Freiberg and Lindsey Russel. The door maximises far-reaching views over surrounding countryside, flooding the interior with natural light.

“The patio door certainly makes an impression on all who see it,” she says. “A couple considering a curved door travelled from Devon to look at ours, having discussed some options with Balcony. Our neighbour who has seen it also wants one!”

For Ken Brown from Perthshire-based Donavin Homes Ltd, the curved system provided the solution he was looking for, saying: “We had struggled to find a supplier for a specialist door, but found what we wanted at Balcony. From ordering to customer service and the product itself, everything was first class.”

Similarly, the Balcony system fitted the bill for North Wales builder and developer Mike Davies who created a spectacular rounded ‘façade’ using curved doors directly above each other on the ground and first floors of a prestigious fivebedroomed home near Prestatyn.

He comments: “I had not seen anything like this system before, so it adds quite a unique feature to the house. The Balcony system far surpasses the
initial plans that had shown a segmented design.”

London homeowner Rodney Turtle installed a curved patio door at his double double-fronted Edwardian end-of-terrace house as part of an extensive refurbishment project to create a contemporary modern living space.

“Balcony made a very positive impression. The quotation was clear and the scope was easy to identify. I was particularly impressed by the excellent preparation on site prior to the order being finalised and later co-operation with the builder to ensure the structure was suitably prepared to avoid any interface problems.

“Delivery was as promised. It’s an excellent product that is not only pleasing to look at, it works well too. The Balcony product is good value compared to other solutions which are not as technically competent.”

No longer confined to the imagination, curved sliding patio doors are now an affordable reality, offering architects tremendous creative design opportunities to make a truly memorable entrance.

One of Balcony’s largest-ever curved sliding glass doors has been installed at a new £3.5 million visitor and education centre dedicated to the Battle of Britain overlooking the English Channel in Kent.

The Wing, which is home to the interactive Scramble Experience, was officially opened by Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in March 2015 during the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

A spokesman for the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust said: “The Wing is built in the shape of a Spitfire wing, with a central ‘cockpit’ area on the first floor housing a café with unbeatable views out over the channel.

“At 19 metres wide, this is certainly one of our largest curved doors and it looks absolutely amazing! The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust’s Cockpit Café must have one of the best views in Kent and we are delighted to have helped the client realise their vision with this prestigious project.” Concluded Effi Wolff, Managing Director at Balcony Systems.

Nestled in the West Sussex countryside, this spectacular new residence built by developer Lodgecrest and main contractor Southgold exudes a ‘great sense of theatre’ with dramatic curving shapes enhanced by curved patio doors and balustrading supplied by Balcony Systems.
Curved Balustrade and Doors in Sussex

 

Named ‘Eclipse’ after its slim curved shape

 

The striking two-storey property stands in over eight acres on the site of a former piggery near the village of Slinfold and enjoys open panoramic views across its grounds. It is valued at £2.5 million.

Maximising the views and light to accommodation on both floors are 14 concave or inwardly-curving patio doors, including an impressive six-panel door in the spacious upper ground floor kitchen/family room. Outside, more than 26 metres of curved balustrading using the Balcony 1 system with a Shiny Chrome circular handrail follows the sweeping balcony overlooking the secluded ‘sunken’ courtyard.

Directly below, a series of concave curved glass doors create a stunning visual impact to the lower bedrooms and games room, allowing in much natural light to the interior and direct access to the courtyard.

The inclusion of an ambitious curved design was a first for South East-based Lodgecrest, as Director Richard Kelly explained: “The original plan to feature curves throughout the building was conceived through collaboration of architects’ ideas; it’s a bespoke design with hardly any straight walls.”

“The whole house has a great sense of theatre”

 

Acknowledging that faceted glass would have been less expensive, Richard felt it would have ‘taken away one essential element of the building’. Having found Balcony Systems via a Google search and researched the company’s expertise in curved glazing, Lodgecrest engaged them on the project.
Richard continued: “Balcony Systems could manufacture what we needed to suit the building’s unique and striking design. Their team fulfilled our requirements to have a complete elevation of smooth curved glass and supply all the required elements, including the curved balustrading.”It was the first time we’d attempted a curved design and the first time we had worked with Balcony Systems. The quality of their products is very good and I think they look smart. I also liked the design; for example the precise construction of the bottom balustrading rail.”

In conclusion, Richard said: “Underneath its sedum ‘green’ roof, the property gives a hidden feeling and does not reveal its dynamic interior and lower courtyard until you enter and walk through. The view opens up, like a surprise and the whole house has a great sense of theatre.

Balcony Systems overcome challenges of  ‘Eclipse’

 

“Using Balcony Systems’ products has helped to give Eclipse its full ‘wow’ factor and I would certainly use the company again,” he added.

The challenges presented by the building’s curved shape meant it was important to find the right specialist supplier that could fulfil the design elements. Of the three quotations sourced by Southgold, it was Balcony’s competitive price, their service and location close to the project that were key to securing the contract.

In conclusion, Gavin Bradley, Southgold’s Contracts Manager, who was impressed with Balcony’s professionalism added: “Eclipse threw up different challenges for all involved. We needed to form new working relationships with companies having experience in curved designs. Knowing specialists like Balcony Systems who can deliver on projects like this is critical. A lot of suppliers might not live up to expectations, so it’s great to find the companies who can.”
