Our balcony system balustrades ae unique in the fact that this is the only system around that can enable postless balconies without using structural glass. Utilising the strength of the handrail the systems can span as much as 4.0m without posts. In theory you can have an endless run of balcony without posts if you do not surpass the maximum lenths the handrail can span and fix them to the walls.

How do you choose the correct method to fix a balcony to your structure and what are the advantages of each option.
These are balconies constructed in a manner so that the balcony protrudes from the face of the building without any visible supports other than the fixing to the face of the building. The weight and imposed loads are supported by cantilevering the structure off the wall. These balconies will not need or have gallow brackets or chains. This type of balcony, while possessing the most aesthetic end result, will require to be designed in advance and will impose larger point loads on the building. This type of balcony cannot be added on but must be predesigned.

How are the corners joined?
We get asked a lot, how are the handrail corners joined together?
An internal corner bracket is screwed to the handrail with screwed plate and pan to covered plate. The handrail corners are fixed together mechanically by way of an internal corner bracket premade to the correct angle. Each side of the handrail is screwed into the plate through the prefabricated holes on the handrail ends. On the Balcony 2 system it is then hidden by a cover plate.
