Stylish clear glass balustrades from Balcony Systems were chosen by developer IE Developments to complement the contemporary design of their award-winning new ‘eco’ development on the Herefordshire/ Worcestershire border.
External balconies off the bedrooms of five detached homes at St Katherine’s Field, Cradley use the Balcony 2 system featuring Balcony’s proprietary Royal Chrome anodised handrail.
Located near the Malvern Hills, the high-specification properties incorporate the latest low-maintenance materials and energy-saving measures, from triple glazed windows to an intelligent heating and solar system. The development recently won the Housebuilder category of the Worcester Bosch Environment 2020 Awards 2013.
Simple, cleane and cost-effective
According to IE Developments Managing Director Tim Evans, the simplicity, cost-effectiveness and cleanliness of Balcony’s design were key factors in their balustrading specification. The developer has a long-standing working relationship with Balcony Systems and used their products on previous projects.
Tim said: “The Balcony balustrading is well-designed, so easy to install and looks very good. It has the ‘less is more’ appearance, which we like and, of course, the need for minimal posts keeps uninterrupted clear views to the outside.”
He added: “The low-maintenance aspects of Balcony’s system means no painting or repairs are required over the balustrading’s lifetime, which fits in with our philosophy to deliver quality homes for discerning purchasers that offer the ability to ‘lock and go’ with confidence. We will be using Balcony Systems’ products again on our next apartment scheme in Malvern.”
