Balconette’s Aerofoil Glass Balustrades in Silver Anodised were installed across sixteen apartments at Aldborough Court in Exmouth, Devon.
“The Aerofoil handrail really sets the system off with the bottom rail support leaving a totally free glass area with no uprights to detract from the view. The packaging of the product for delivery was excellent.”

The Future is Here
Seeing the sun stream through your windows is one of the best ways to start your day. Unless of course your glass isn’t looking its best. Watermarks, dust and grime really show up in the sunshine. Instead of enjoying your day, you end up calling a window cleaner or getting out the ladder and cleaning the windows yourself.

Balcony Systems Defined
Balcony systems is a term that is used a lot but can mean many things.
First of all, let’s define a balcony. This is “a platform enclosed by a wall or balustrade on the outside of a building, with access from an upper-floor window or door”. So, in simple words, it is the floor and the low wall sitting on that floor, sticking out from a building for people to walk out onto.
