TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Here are technical specifications for the Juliette balconies we manufacture. Included below is the material specification, technical drawings, elevations and sections, structural calculations and other details you may need in relation to our glass Juliette balcony systems.

MATERIAL SPECIFICATION:

Balustrade structure:

6063 T5 extruded aluminium profiles

Anodising:

15 micron high-quality anodizing in Matt Bronze, Matt Silver or our proprietary "Royal Chrome" finish.

Powder Coating:

60-100 micron polyester powder coating in white colour. RAL colour options available for large projects only.

Glass:

10mm clear toughened is the standard but laminated and toughened options are available. Tinted or opaque glass options are available.

Permitted Loading on Balcony:

Our Juliette balconies are designed to resist the horizontal imposed load of 0.74 kN/m as specified in Table 4 of BS 6399-1:1996, covering occupancy classes A(i) and (ii), B(iii), (iv) and (v), C3(viii) and (ix), and (iii), (iv) and (iii).

This is designed in conjunction with the note on vertical loads below.

Vertical loads:

Amendment [A1] of BS 6399-1:1996 specifies that parapets, barriers and balustrades shall be designed for a vertical uniformly distributed imposed line load of 0.60 kN/m or a concentrated load of 1.0 kN, whichever gives the worst design condition in combination with the horizontal loading in Table 4.

Permitted Loading on the Glass infill:

The glass infill is designed for a uniformly distributed load of 1.0 kN/m2 (220 pounds per square metre approximately) plus a point load of 0.5 kN (110 pounds).

Brackets:

  • 6063-T6 Extruded aluminium wall brackets

Gaskets:

EPDM (ethylene-propylene rubber)

LOADING TESTS

Juliette Balcony Systems in the UK must comply with building regulations, BS6180 and the loadings in BS6399.

In addition to calculations, the Juliette Balconies have been load tested by independent engineering companies to physically test the ability of the system to bear the loads.

This includes testing the deflection under maximum load, uniformly distributed loads and point loads.

All of these loads and deflections were tested on the handrails as well as the glass infill panels.

Test results confirm the systems meet and exceed the required criteria.

JULIETTE BALCONIES: STRUCTURAL CALCULATIONS

There are two structural calculations for each of the Juliette balcony models listed below: one with a reinforcing bar and one without. A reinforcing bar is an option that allows the handrail to have a larger span.
