Keeping beautiful views over three counties from the patio decking at their Herefordshire home was of paramount importance to Gill and Ronald Webb – and their smart Balconette balustrade fits the bill perfectly.
With the advent of better weather and easing of restrictions, this Balconette Aerofoil Glass Balustrade System helps to create a social space on patios where guests can lean on the sturdy wing-shaped handrail, chat and admire the view.
The patio, complete with table and chairs, flows around a recently built orangery and is accessed via two sets of bi-fold doors.
Although at first undecided whether to have a frameless balustrade system or one with a handrail, Gill is glad she opted for the latter. “With the rail on top, we do find that people tend to lean on it, look at the view and have a chat. It’s more social; so, I’m pleased we went with the handrail option.”
The 12 metres of glass balustrade features obtuse angles that follow the irregular shape of the patio, amply demonstrating the system’s versatility. The handrail and base track are in Balconette’s resplendent Royal Chrome finish.
