High-rise Balconies

This project required hundreds of pre-assembled posts and panels of glass all supplied to exact sizes. When our client came to us with the project, we rose to the challenge of making installation on site as easy as possible due to the sheer number of balconies involved.

In this project, everything was packed per balcony. When the fitters came to install, all they had to do with pick up a box, and it had everything needed to install the metalwork for a balcony. With over 60 balconies involved, this saved significant time on site, as there was no sorting of materials needed. Get in touch, and we can work with you to make your installation even easier onsite.

The glass used on the balconies is grey, so as to create some privacy. All the glass was supplied cut to order, ready for easy installation. As the balconies are all at height, the safety pins in the clamps were used. We recommend that at least 2 pins are used per panel. If the glass slips, the pins make sure its kept in place, so that there is still a barrier. All the safety pins can be used, but this drastically reduces the installation tolerance available.

Since the Grenfell disaster in 2017, the regulations around materials used on high-rise buildings has tightened. To be compliant, all materials used on the external face of a building over 18m has to achieve a fire classification of A2-s1 or A1 classified in accordance with BS EN 13501-1:2007+A1:2009. Both stainless steel and monolithic toughened glass meets this fire rating, making our balustrades a perfect fit for these installations.
