Would you like some privacy on your balcony?
Uninterrupted views across the fields or looking out across the sea are, for many, what dreams are made of when it comes to the ideal view out of your patio doors. Unfortunately, very few ever get to live in a home with these dream views. To add to this, most of us like a little privacy at least some of the time. This has led to the increasing popularity of our privacy screens or privacy glass, which we now offer.

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.

Juliette balconies give homeowners the opportunity to install a French door above the ground floor. Either curved or straight, they come with minimal hand rail for a modern look, while also enhancing light into a room and safely providing a clear view out. Available in seven standard sizes from stock (delivered in three days from order), or custom made, and competitively priced, our Juliette balconies are an attractive and popular choice for consumers wishing to make a difference to their home.
Glass balustrades are also available from stock or custom made to suit the style and size of property. Available in curved, stepped or straight designs, balustrades add great character and style to homes. And with our systems there are no clamps between each pane of glass to disturb the view and the glass reaches top to bottom to give an uninterrupted, clearer view. Using the same minimal hand rail as the Juliette balcony and available in easy maintenance anodised aluminium, Balcony’s Juliettes and balustrades are easy to install and offer instant improvement to the look of any property.
Balcony is the UK’s leading supplier of curved patio doors and our stunning range is described by homeowners, builders, installers and architects as giving properties the ‘wow’ factor. Each door comes with high weather rating, thermally broken aluminium profiles, multi-point locking, 28mm double curved glazing with safety glass on both sides and a choice of RAL powder coat colours. A special low maintenance coating is available for the external surface of the glass to minimise the need for cleaning.
