Juliet Balconies with Handrail

*Click a picture to see our Juliet gallery
 

Juliet Balconies have become massively popular for the light and air they allow into upper storey rooms. Our Juliets use the unique HYBRID® system, which combines the minimum of visual distraction with maximum safety and ease of installation.

The innovative engineering design at the heart of the HYBRID® system uses invisible bracing within an elegant – and comfortable - self-supporting handrail. See more about the HYBRID® system here.

The Orbit Handrail

The Orbit Handrail has a circular cross-section, and is supported by our unique HYBRID® system. This enables straight runs of up to 4 metres between upright supports, including end supports

The Aero Handrail

The Aero Handrail is shaped like a wing and is particularly comfortable for leaning on. As with the Orbit handrail, it uses our unique HYBRID® system.

For Juliets using the Orbit handrail, we can replace the usual lower supporting channel with a second, inverted section of Orbit rail, mirroring the handrail. This is the Mirror Juliet.

All handrails are made from anodised aluminium, giving excellent structural stability, and scratchresistance. They are rust-free, even in challenging coastal conditions. Stock colours are shown below. For larger orders a full range of RAL colours is available.

Thickness

Our balcomies standardly come with 10mm clear toughened glass. - other options are available.

Tints

They can be supplied with a choice of different tints: clear, green, grey, bronze and blue.

Self-Cleaning

All glass types can be supplied with the unique double sided self-cleaning glass coating. This is a nanocoating applied to both sides of your glass. It repels water and dirt, which generally just slides off the coated glass. The coating lasts from 3-10 years.

Frameless Juliet Balconies

Frameless glass (also known as structural glass) gives the ultimate in unobstructed, wide-open views.

They use double-sheet laminated glass, and require a bottom support channel which can mounted in different ways - see below

No handrail is required, but a thin eliptical rail can be attached to the top of the balustrade.

Frameless systems are usually supplied with 2.15mm Laminated Toughened clear glass. Other options are only available by special order - talk to one of representatives for details

WHAT IS A JULIET BALCONY?

The Juliet balcony, also known as a “balconette” or “French balcony” - and often spelled “Juliette balcony” get its name comes the famous balcony scene in Shakespeare's “Romeo and Juliet.”

The Juliet balcony is a great way to add many of the advantages of a balcony but without the structural complications and cost.

It is a simple balustrade fixed to the external facade of a building to allow rooms on the first or higher floors to have inward-opening full-height French doors, which means more light and sense of space, more views and more air – and is a simple solution to achieving the “luxury” feel of a balcony with relative simplicity.

Traditionally, Juliet balconies were made from steel and usually painted black, with vertical bars. Clamped to a building’s external facade, they could often be ugly or solid looking structures that did little to compliment the look of the building while disturbing the view from the inside with obtrusive ironworks and railings.

THE JULIET BALCONY: A LIGHT TOUCH

At Balcony Systems we worked hard to develop a Juliet balcony

Our system helps fulfil the purpose of having floor-length inward-opening ground-level windows in the first place: to create light and space and wider views, while gracing the external facade with something that intrudes less on – or even improves – the overall visual appeal of the architecture.

Our Juliet balconies in glass are an innovative design that utilises the strength of our patented aluminium handrail to enable much greater spans of glass (up to 4 metres!) to be achieved without the need for any supporting posts. The result is a more graceful Juliet balcony that takes much fuller advantage of the strength and aesthetic qualities of glass but which is also virtually maintenance free and very straightforward to install.

JULIET BALCONY: RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT, SOLUTION, RESULT

We researched and developed our Juliet balcony design from our on-site experience and with the needs of architects, developers and installers in mind - as well, of course, as the customer. The result is a Juliet balcony that is maintenance free and one of the easiest- if not the easiest - to install.

Not only that but in the unlikely event that a glass panel ever needs to be replaced, this can be done easily from inside the property without the need for scaffolding.

Our Juliet balconies have become so popular that we have over a hundred Fast-Track Sizes available. These fast track sizes are made in an incredibly short 5 working day turnaround.  Sizes from 1.0m wide up to 4.0m all in a choice of four colours. You can order single units or in bulk to suit any residential or commercial development, renovation or improvement project:

We have supplied Juliet Balcony systems all across the British Isles from The Isle of Lewis to Lands End and from Northern Ireland to Aberdeen, the product and its ease of installation is praised by one customer after another

The materials used to make our Juliet Balcony range - from the anodised aluminium of the handrails to the safety glass toughened on both sides or the BalcoNano self-cleaning coating - require almost no maintenance other than very light cleaning and guarantee your glass Juliet balcony a very long trouble-free life.
