Refurbishing Buildings with Glass Balustrades

non compliant glass balustradeRetrofitting glass balconies onto an older property is an excellent way to update a building’s exterior. This isn’t difficult, provided the underlying structure is strong enough to hold the extra weight of the glass.

About Juliette Balconies

balcony systems juliet balcony

As very different from a “walk on” type balcony, the term Juliet Balcony in simplicity is a guarding or barrier placed on the outside of full height French doors that are installed on the first floor or higher floors, that do not lead to a balcony.

The modern house build utilises the use of full height windows and doors in the creation of a larger “virtual space” in a small environment. This creates an extension of the outside visibility and enlarges the viewpoint from the inside by giving a downward view from further away.

The traditional Juliet balcony was made from steel, usually painted black, with vertical bars. This would be installed onto the wall outside and work as a barrier. This kind of steel Juliet Balcony has a heavy set feel to it and gives a “cage” sort of look both from the inside and from the outside.

self cleaning glassIsn’t it a dream come true, glass that cleans itself? No more dust, grime, calcium deposits and dirt to ruin the views?

One of the most tedious tasks in life is maintenance and cleaning. Just the words “self cleaning” will sell almost anything. It is an obvious requirement and will always fetch more money. But does it work? And is it worth the extra expense?
