Which glass do you supply? Can you supply tinted glass?

We predominantly supply 10mm Clear Toughened Glass. We can offer tinted & also Laminated glass as well.

Why do you leave a gap between the glasses? And how big is the gap?

We leave a 30mm gap between glass panels for three reasons: 1)No smaller than 30 so fingers/rings do not get trapped 2) Not abutted for expansion and 3) for ease of installation and alignment

What are the glass size sections? How many glasses is each run made from?

For ease of installation and transport we divide the glasses so the largest pane does not exceed 1.2m length.

I can see that the bottom rail is continuous, do you have a solution to allow water drainage?

Yes, we can supply, as part of the system, 5mm packers that will sit beneath each fixing point and so allow a 5mm gap that allows water to pass freely underneath the bottom rail.

Do you Manufacture the Balcony Structure?

We manufacture the balustrade only, not the balcony structure. Our system will suit almost any balcony structure.

What colours can the balustrades or Juliettes be supplied in?

We have four standard colours; White, Silver, Bronze and our unique "Royal Chrome" finish.

We can supply other colours but only on projects that have enough quantity to allow this.

How are the corner joined? are they welded?

The corners of the balustrades are mechanically joined with a special internal aluminium plate. They are not welded. 

Is anodizing better or worse than stainless steel?

Stainless steel despite its name will tend to tarnish and will usually not live up to the expectations. Anodized aluminium, especially our "Royal Chrome", is far superior in corrosion resistance and longevity and will not require the amount of regular maintenance that stainless steel will.

Are the balustrades suitable for stairs?

Our systems are designed to suit balconies and terraces, they are not designed for stair railings.

Have your Balustrade Systems been tested?

Yes, our balustrade systems have been thoroughly tried and tested, on site and off site. In June 2004 we commissioned Sandberg LLP, independent testing & consulting engineers, to test our systems with regards to compliance to BS6180:1999 & BS6399:1996. These test results are posted on our website in the form of PDF documents. You can view these through the home page or download them at the download.

What is the approximate weight per meter of the system with glass?

The balustrade system at 1.1m height and with 10mm glass weighs appx 33kg per linear meter

Is the Balcony balustrade Systems a Structural Glass System?

No, it is not a structural glass balustrade. It is a composite system utilizing both the glass and the Handrail to take the loads. Utilizing the handrail allows the balustrade to span certain lengths without the need for vertical posts. Once these are exceeded we must introduce vertical posts.

By Rob HibbsBoth end caps of the balustrade system had become badly corroded after 2 years. I, the customer (not the installer), contacted Balcony Systems by email and, without hesitation, they supplied replacement end caps of far superior quality (anodized instead of painted), replacement stainless steel screws, all within a couple of days, and without any charge whatsoever. An excellent after sales service.

By Richard CarterWe were looking for a nice and modern enclosure for our small balcony. Balconette's glass balustrade was just what we needed. The balustrading looks light and stunning, solid and safe. It doesn't block out the light and makes the balcony bigger. Our kids enjoy playing there. The new stylish balcony balustrade definitely upgraded the entire flat design.

By Ian DraperOur Balcony 2 system looks superb around the edge of our patio. I even managed to fit some colour-changing LED lighting to it - which transforms it at night time. The handrail is just the right height so as not to obstruct the view when seated, and perfect for resting on when standing up.

The staff at Balcony Systems are a pleasure to deal with - including having a sense of humour. They had a lot of patience whilst I finalised my designs and were as cooperative as they could be.

Although the product is quite expensive, it looks great and has a quality look and feel to it. It looks even better at night time with colour-changing LED lights fitted to it.

By RosieHaving spent a long time looking for a suitable apartment to rent, with light and airy outside space, we finally looked around the one in the photos, and the terrace, and balustrades had a significant impact on our decision to take the apartment.

The opaque glass provides a stunning backdrop to plants growing in front, while creating a light and airy feel to the whole terrace. The overall effect is extremely stylish, very pleasant to sit in, and makes the terrace seem far larger than it actually is.

By Alex BellAn excellent product both in terms of the design and overall appearance. Fewer posts give a cleaner more modern look and maximize the view through the glass. The Royal Chrome is tremendous and adds to the overall feeling of quality. Extremely helpful from start to finish and always contactable during the design process. Couldn't have been better. I only had one small query after installation which was answered quickly in one phone call. I researched several similar balustrade products and Balcony systems represented the best value for money.

Pictures don't do these balcony's justice, they look fantastic. From my initial contact to receiving the goods I dealt with 4 different people and each answered any queries I had almost instantly and I was kept well informed of the stage of my order. I paid for the fast track service and the goods were ready within 4 weeks and delivered well packaged and on the day promised. Well worth the money spent as it looks fantastic.

By Ian GardnerI chose Balcony Systems because of the simple design of the product and its clean lines. I wanted to maximise visibility from my patio and did not want many uprights or obstructions.

We had the balcony installed as part of a building extension where we had a raised patio built in front of large sliding doors. We wanted to bring the 'the outside in' without restricting views or compromising safety.

We are very happy with the product, it meets all of our objectives and looks wonderful. Quality is very high.

By Alan SmithThe finished system 1 is impressive but I have two shortcommings; the bolt flange on one of the structural steel posts was not at 90 degrees to the upright and needed shimming, the closing quarter section at the junction of Rail and post needs detail of the shimming required to preload it in place.In all, very happy. Quality of drawings and promptness of delivery, excellent. This was not the cheapest but it is the neatest and easiest for a DIY installation so represents very good value for money

rating starrating starrating starrating starrating starRobust product in a harsh enviroment, 29 Nov 2010
By darren chittyThis has proven to be the ideal product for the environment we have installed it into - costal. The product is exposed to the harshest of weather and the full force of the salt winds here on the exposed coast and has survived the past 2 years without any blemishes or structural issues. The product is a far better choice for a salty environment than standard grade stainless steel other often use in our area. The product is a modern design and because of its public location overlooking a public walkway to the beach, it has received a lot of interest and positive feedback. The product was also very easy to install for DIY. Balcony systems were very helpful throughout the sales process and were able to help us design our privacy screen to meet the requirements of planning and withstand the prevailing winds. The product arrived onsite with blemishes on the chrome rails that were obviously due to manufacturing issues. On reporting this to Balcony they investigated and agreed to replace both rails at their cost. After investigation changes were implemented so that balcony inspected all of their products prior to shipping to customers and also improved their packaging. The product is great value for money and offers a very modern high quality product. The product can easliy be installed DIY and the techinical department offer complete support throughout the process.

By David CampbellWe had a small balcony area outside a spare bedroom, and when we had our son we thought it would be nice for him eventually to be able to play out there. We therefore needed a safe enclosure, but wanted something which looked attractive and modern. Balconette's balustrade was just right - it's solid, looks good and means we have a safe enclosed area but one that doesn't block out the light. What I liked about Balconette was that I spoke to real people, who remembered my name and often didn't even need to look me up on their system because they remembered the details of my order. Really impressive.

After some considerable research we found Balconette. The product is exactly what we wanted to give a stylish and modern finish.The assembly was not difficult and both our builder and architect have since recommended the product to their other clients. We have received many comments from friends and family, all of whom are very impressed with the quality and appearance of the finished glass balustrade. This is undoubtedly a brilliant product. The company has been easy and always eager to help both during the order stage when detailed drawings were provided and both the assembly and after sales processes.

By Stuart WilkieWe had struggled to find a balustrade whose style worked with our Oak framed house and did not obscure our views over the Kentish Weald. The Balustrade supplied by Balcony Systems looks superb and has no unsightly brackets and fittings to secure the glass panels. It is very strong and offers perfect unobstructed views of the countryside and enhances the look of our house. We found Balcony Systems to be very easy to deal with, from the friendly sales team through to the very helpful technical team. Delivery was on time and the quality was excellent. I would highly recomend them to anyone looking for a balustrade. I installed the balustrade myself with help from a carpenter. The installation was very straightforward, and when we needed advice from Balcony Systems it was always speedily provided, together with many helpful tips. Superb value for money.
rating starrating starrating starrating starrating starBalcony 1 balustrade system, 11 Nov 2010
By Lauren SteadmanThis is a very clean modern looking balustrade system. I purchased System 1 as a 3x section type so the balcony is totally enclosed by glass. The hand rail is in Royal chrome finished anodised aluminium which not only looks incredibly smart but it has weathered very well in the two years since it was put up. In fact the whole system still looks as good as the day it was installed.

The Balcony formed a major part of my house refurbishment as it's in the front of the property and visually is the focal point of my house. Getting the right system for the build project was paramount and Balconette offered me the right solution in a very simple & cost effective package. I am very happy with the final look of the house which owes a lot to the glass balcony. The other reason I chose the system is that the glass fits flush without fussy bolt fittings that I have had on balconies before. These get dirty and are almost impossible to clean properly. The Balcony 1 system is very easy to keep clean and therefore always looks great. The system was also very simple to have installed, it was fitted in no time saving time and money, which is also a plus. The company was very thorough right through the ordering process to sending me diagrams of the product for me to sign off. Also providing me with technical drawings needed to help my builders with the building of the actual balcony. The product was delivered as scheduled with no delays. I would not hesitate to order from you in the future. I have not had any problems so not needed to contact them for after sales service. That speaks volumes! The cost of this system represents very good value given the size of the area, quality of this system and that it looks so good.

By Spike Jackson - Sage ExteriorsThe quality of materials was first class, the measurements were millimetre perfect, and it went together like a dream. Only one small quibble: Because of the design profile of the handrail, a fairly sharp point was created at each external corner, which could bruise you quite badly if you walked into it in the dark! My order was very professionally dealt with at every stage, and the offer to throw in self-cleaning glass free of charge was very generous.Having been promised delivery in the second week of August when I ordered, it was unfortunate that I was not informed until quite late on that the product would not actually arrive until the beginning of September. However, once that had been established, the delivery process proceeded like clockwork! A superb-looking product at a very competitive price.

Great service, nothing appeared too much trouble even when I misplaced items that had already been delivered. I regularly referred to the on-line videos relating to the installation.

By Greg CoomberI still find it hard to belive how quick and easy the system went together.With a small amount of DIY will and armed with an electric drill I doubt if there is anyone in this land that could not put this system together and end up with a stuningly proffessional finish. With the additional advantage of saving yourself at least 50% against businesses that fit it as well. If you watch the vidio a 10 year old could put it together.
Living within 60 miles of this business I droped my measurements in personaly with my order. My greating was first rate and was even offered a cup of tea. This company makes doing business with them easy.

By Michael HallidayAfter doing extensive research on the internet followed by a face to face meeting at grand designs in Birmingham it was the obvious choice to use Balcony systems for the refurbishment of our existing balcony. With the use of the glass and stainless balustrade it really has given our 70's house the wow factor. The ease of installation meant that once delivered the project was complete in two days.

We originally had an issue with a difference in colour of the balustrading, due to two different batches in the manufacturing process.
However the speed and professionalism in resolving the issue highlighted Balcony systems commitment to product and customer satisfaction.

The installation was completed by our own contractor however when advice was required the company were on hand to provide it. The online installation video provided our contractor with a necessary overview prior to pricing and taking on the works. All materials supplied exact to size and requirements in short did exactly what it said in the ad!

We consider the balcony system supplied, excellent value for money and has only enhanced the marketability of the property.

By Mr. C. C."I installed the two balconies myself in a total of 42 hours.

The complexity of the angles in the larger balcony measuring 2m by 3m and 4m presented more of a challenge. However, design assistance from Balcony's technical team helped to ensure the whole job went smoothly."

By Deco Design & Build, Kings Bench Street, SE1 "Balcony did a good job and I would happily use the company again.

It's a cost-effective product and the ability to match
the handrail colour was a factor in our choice
to achieve a co-ordinated exterior appearance.

We specified an RAL colour on the balcony elliptical handrail to match the 'gunmetal grey' shade of the property's windows.

"Workmanship overall was very good and on delivery and timescales, they did what they said, when they said they would.

I would certainly recommend the company and would consider Balcony for any future balustrading projects."

By Mr & Mrs D"Balcony has been an excellent company to work with. Initially the balcony was damaged beyond repair in transit by the courier. We emailed Balcony photographs of the damage and they replaced it without question, we could not fault their customer service.

By Mr. & Mrs. A "It was just what we wanted and suits our 1980s house. With a bronze handrail, the balcony looks lovely and, of course, being glass there's no maintenance and no need to paint railings.

"An added benefit is protection from the wind, so we can enjoy countryside views from the south-facing balcony all year round - even in winter. A system we'd recommend."

  • A brief introduction to the systems:

    We have two unique systems:

    Balcony 1 System

    Balcony 1 System has a 70mm diameter handrail and 55mm diameter posts. When used for public areas we utilize 65mm diameter posts.

    Balcony 2 system

    Balcony 2 system has a special aerofoil shaped handrail with dimensions 116mm wide and 51mm height, the vertical balustrade posts for the balcony 2 system are rectangular in shape and sit behind the glass. The size of the balusters is 40mm wide and 66 mm deep.


    Stainless steel handrails are very limited in shape, where our systems, in particular the balcony 2 system when finished in royal chrome will allow a wide and interesting shape in a stainless look.

    The handrails are specially designed to be load bearing. In certain sizes and if fixed properly can allow wide spans without posts.

    However if these spans are exceeded the systems will require posts.


    Typically posts can be spaced at approximately 1.9m - 2.0m centres.

    These posts are made from two parts; a primary or “base” structural post which can be supplied early and should be fitted firmly to the building or structure below the finished floor level. This primary post will be covered by the “system” post on final installation. This unique “telescopic” system relieves the need to know the exact final height of the handrail at the early stage. This allows tremendous flexibility in design and implementation.


    We supply the system in 4 standard colours;

    Royal Chrome – which will give the look of stainless steel handrails with a durable and untarnishing surface finish.

    Samples available upon request

    The systems employ 10mm toughened glass, this can be supplied in Clear or tinted options:

    Green tinted, grey tinted, bronze tinted or blue tinted.

    Also available is an opaque or “satinized” option for privacy.

    Laminated glasses can be supplied if required.

    We operate an online pricing system where you can obtain a price for your balustrade without the need for entering your private details.

    You can save a quote for a later date or go on and order it online!

    Each order we receive is drawn up by our technical department and signed off before manufacture so you can be 100% certain and happy it is correct

    If you want a long lasting, cost effective, beautiful glass balustrade. Go for Balcony Systems Solutions!

    Just read our testimonials or call our sales office for references in your area.

    Our systems are made from aluminium alloy and when anodized are a mean match for 316 stainless steel handrails and stainless steel balustrades.

    The main advantages our systems have on stainless steel are cost and finished clean look. The advantages on structural glass are with ease of implementation and speed of installation as well as cost which is probable half of structural glass.
