Juliet Balcony, Leicester
Juliet Balcony 50mm diameter glass stand offs, 17.52mm toughened & laminated glass polished all round with 4x 26mm diameter hole cut out
Installer: GK Joinery ltd
Phoenix Balustrading Ltd were appointed to design and install a Juliet balcony on the third floor of the clients house in Leicester.
The client’s brief was to achieve a seamless view with no visible handrails obscuring the view across the open fields. During the site survey, the technical representative for Phoenix Balustrading discussed various options with the client. It was recommended that the 50mm diameter glass stand offs in 316 grade stainless steel would be sufficient to withstand the loading requirement of 0.74kN/m and would provide ample backing to miss the door handles on the outside.
It was decided to increase the glass either end by 100mm to avoid the opening in the bricks and ensure there was a solid fixing to fasten to.
Juliet balconies provide an attractive balustrading solution without compromising on safety. More and more Juliet balconies are being installed as standard features with housebuilders and developers and not only are they simple to install, they allow greater freedom of design with our high quality modular stainless steel balustrade & handrail components.
