Privacy Screens, Wind Breaks & Taller Balustrades

Privacy screens are many times a stipulation to a planning approval for a balcony, usually to limit views onto a neighbouring property that may now be overlooked by the new addition or balcony. Integrating a privacy screen with a standard height balustrade requires attention to several details, not least being the added loads of the higher screen.

Here at Balconette we manufacture and supply bespoke privacy screens. We have added these to our range of products and have developed two systems. One that passes through the Aerofoil profile giving a seamless effect and the other that inte­grates with our Orbit balustrade system. Both meet the required wind loads and build­ing regulations.

Balconette’s team of design engineers have worked tirelessly to create a passthrough glass balustrade that effortlessly complements regular glass balustrading. With frame­less glass above handrail height, your balconies and balustrades will look slick and provide privacy, safety and protection from the elements without compromise.

The Orbit privacy screens are available in both Royal Chrome and Silver Anodised Aluminium finishes and are supplied with 10mm satinised, toughened glass which is used instead of regular clear or tinted glass.

It is important to think of the implications of a privacy screen in advance so that any pre installation of posts can be taken into account. Get us involved early in the design considerations so that we can help advise and consult the best options to achieve this.
