Triangular Glass Balconies
Lancing, West Sussex
Developer: Gerald Glover & Laura Turner
Maximising sea views from this stunning individually-designed beach house on the South coast are aluminium and glass balconies supplied by Balcony Systems Ltd. Corrosion-resistant and requiring no-maintenance, the system is the perfect stylish choice for a contemporary property in a marine environment.Gerald Glover and his partner Laura Turner selected Balcony's glazed balustrading for the two 7.5 metres wide tapering balconies at the Lancing property, which was featured on television in Channel Five's 'Build a New Life in the Country'.
The couple chose the bronze coloured aluminium handrail finish to complement the brown windows and timber cladding at their unique glass-fronted home, which is literally yards from the sea.
"Glass was important to match the external appearance and we chose the Balcony system because it is so simple and looks beautiful. It is so much better than others we considered," explains Laura. "It lets in light and uses minimum posts to maximise the glass area without resorting to the high expense of structural glazing."
She adds: "Balcony also assisted us on design and technical aspects of the project. It's fantastic waking up and all you can see is the sea, without bars to obscure the view."
The Balcony system with a silver handrail finish is also installed on a similar neighbouring house owned by Andrew Clayton, who comments: "The elegant style of the balconies suits the seaside location very well, having clear views through the glass panels and minimal post structures."Cost-effective with clean lines and no maintenance, Balcony's glazed balustrading systems are a clear choice with housebuilders and homeowners alike who want to preserve views and maximise light to property interiors.
Balcony Systems Ltd specialises in sophisticated balustrading solutions, supplying elegant glass and aluminium balustrades and Juliette balconies to complement all property styles. In many cases, the glass balustrades require no vertical supports to give a clear view to the outside at a fraction of the cost of alternative glazed systems.
An added advantage is that should a glass panel need replacing in the future, this can be done easily and safely from the balcony itself, rather than hiring costly and time-consuming scaffolding or 'cherry pickers'.
