EPDM (ethylene-propylene rubber)
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.
