Frameless Glass Juliet Balcony
3 Advantages of a frameless Juliet balcony
What is a frameless glass Juliet balcony?
A frameless glass balcony is a rather simple concept; a Juliet balcony guarding that does not require any supporting framework and is solely supported by its own structural integrity. Where no supporting frame is used, thick structural glass is used to provide the required barrier strength.
What are the advantages of using a frameless Juliet balcony?
1) Seamless vision AKA an ‘infinity’ balcony.
You’ve probably heard of the term infinity balcony, or more likely infinity swimming pool when looking at holiday destinations. The infinity element refers to having no visual barrier or boundary between two areas – be it between one side of the balcony and the other or the inside and outside of a swimming pool. This seamless pure vision effect is what most people regard as the most important factor in choosing a frameless glass Juliet balcony.
A frameless Juliet balcony, by design, has no upright supports or need for a handrail that would interfere with an open view from a window or set of doors. This type of Juliet balcony is therefore most popular with buildings that benefit from a far reaching view or attractive landscape.
2) Optional top handrails
The beauty of the frameless glass Juliet is that no posts are required to provide structural support; this is also true of the handrail but this is optional. In order to conform with current building regulations a toughened and laminated glass is required to be used where no handrail is installed for safety reasons. Although not required, some customers will opt for a handrail for ultimate peace-of-mind when leaning on their lovely new glass Juliet balcony.
What could be easier and more fuss-free than a product with only two elements? All that is required to create a frameless glass Juliet balcony is the structural pane of toughened and laminated glass and the glazing clamp fittings, that’s it. The installation method is a simple task for most tradesmen.
