A Juliet balcony is effectively a section of balustrade attached to a building’s façade, that provides edge protection in the form of a guard rail but offers no space on which to walk or stand.
Designed to provide an attractive barrier to an upper-storey window or doorway, we offer a range of standard Juliet balcony rails to suit various door and window openings. Our standard Juliet balcony balustrades are available in a range of materials; including mild steel, stainless steel or glass, with a range of handrails, infills and protective finishes designed to last many years.
The Juliet balcony handrails can be manufactured from a variety of sections including tube, flat or bar and fitted with vinyl capping or a range of soft or hardwood timbers. Alternatively, why not mix and match materials and create your own design? As an experienced Juliet balcony supplier, we are happy to liaise and turn your design into a reality.
Walkout Balcony Balustrades
A walkout balcony is an outdoor platform or extension attached to a building, typically at an upper level, that allows occupants to step outside. Where a balcony is to become an extension to your living area and allow you to step into your own private outdoor space, we can design and manufacture the perfect product to complement or match the surroundings. Again, these systems are available in a range of materials and infill panels, offering long-lasting protective finishes suitable for internal or external applications.
If you already have a support structure and require a balustrade, we can offer a quality product from an extensive range of balustrade designs or work with you and your designers to bring your ideas to life. Handrails can also be provided in tube, flat or convex bar or in a soft or hardwood timber of your choice.
Do get in touch, we’re always happy to offer advice and suggestions. Over the course of our 23 years, we have manufactured and installed a great many balcony balustrades for larger developments, including apartment blocks, student accommodation, and educational facilities.
Balcony Atriums, Galleries and Walkways
An atrium is typically a central hallway rising through several stories of a building, overlooked by balconies or walkways and often covered with a glazed roof. These open areas within a building, and their surrounding walkways or balconies, offer a unique open vantage point to enjoy the natural light of that central space.
Our range of balcony balustrades are found on many new and refurbishment projects nationwide, that include an atrium, gallery or walkway.
All our balcony balustrades are designed not only with safety in mind but also to enhance the beauty and functionality of these central spaces. With our simple metal bar or perforated sheet infills, you can create a sleek and modern look, while our frameless glass balconies provide a seamless and transparent view.
Gatehouse balcony balustrades have been widely incorporated to provide safe and attractive edge protection to upper floor as well as ground floor, internal and external galleries and walkways. Whatever your design requirements, we are happy to liaise and offer a range of bespoke or standard balustrades to help bring your atrium or gallery to life.
Whether you prefer a contemporary or traditional design, we have you covered.
