Open up a small window or part of a wall and you make the most of your view and add extra daylight for a bright and spacious feeling. If you’re adding a Juliet balcony to your property, either as part of a new-build project or a renovation, the railings you choose have a significant bearing on the final appearance of your project.

Give your Patio the X-Factor with Glass Railings from Balconette
Fancy making your patio the talk of the town? Then why not install glass railings? More than just a fence; there are many ways patio glass railings can turn your garden or patio into something very special.
Zone your Garden
Good garden design has a lot to do with zoning. It can make your outside space work more effectively and make things look much more spacious.

And with a choice of features, ranging from the slick frameless glass railings to the more distinct separation of a handrail balustrade, you’ll find something to suit your patio beautifully.

Stylish, Stunning and Unique: Exceptional Innovation for Glass Balconies and Balustrades.
True breakthroughs in balconies and balustrading are rare, so we’re very excited to present a breakthrough innovation, unique to Balconette.

Adding a privacy screen or extra height to regular glass balustrading has meant giving up on that perfect design. Extra posts and a network of support railings meant extra work for the fitters and an appearance out of keeping with high expectations.

Are your system structural glass balustrades?
Due to the fact that many of our systems are installed without the use of posts, we get asked if the Balconette system is a structural glass balustrade. The answer is no. It’s a hybrid system. A Structural glass balustrade means that the glass itself acts as the structure, and resists outward forces by being cantilevered from the ground.

What are the handrail systems made from?
We get asked are the handrails made of stainless steel? The answer is no, they are made from something better than stainless steel. They are made from anodised aluminium. Stainless steel is correctly named in that it stains less, but anodised aluminium is actually more corrosion-resistant, and that’s why we use it.
