BALCONY SYSTEMS Ltd have curve appeal at luxury complex

Curved patio doors and glass balustrading supplied by Balcony Systems Ltd met the architect’s specification to maximise light, satisfy strict aesthetic requirements and enhance the feeling of spaciousness at this luxury apartment complex for the over-55s in Lancashire.

The Renaissance Living development at Sienna Court in Oldham offers stylish and modern retirement accommodation, with a mix of 53 apartments, of these six two-bedroom penthouse apartments.

The complex is built to exacting high standards by contractor Wiggett Construction Ltd and makes extensive use of glass. Glass was specified to maximise residents’ views; both internally overlooking a large communal lounge/bistro area and externally from Juliette balconies to a central Piazza within the complex.

According to Renaissance Living, the elegance and simplicity of Balcony’s “Balconette” Juliette Balcony system provides the secure 1.1 metre high balustrade to satisfy Building Regulations, but without any ‘visually intrusive’ bars and “at very reasonable comparative cost.”

The company adds: “Balcony’s systems have enabled us to make our original vision a reality – particularly as they occupy such highly visible positions, making them a key factor in the overall appearance of the development.”

Balcony also provided the technical advice and design criteria for curved balconies and curved sliding patio door access for two large penthouse apartments.

“Having discussed the technical aspects with Balcony and learned about the curved sliding door system, which again was very reasonably priced, we had our solution,” explains Dave Higgins, Projects Director at Wiggett Construction. “Up to then, we had not been able to find an answer to the structural curves in glass/aluminium on the British market.”

Curved glass balustrading supplied by Balcony Systems also fulfilled the safety requirements for a large opening with curved ends in the first floor of the communal area, giving a visual interlink with ground floor lounge below.

“Minimum visual interference, minimum structural supports and curved glass were again the defining factors. Balcony’s solution is both aesthetically satisfying and achieved considerable economies on other quoted systems – none of which could deal with the curves. Balcony’s installation teams also integrated well with the contract programme and we are extremely satisfied with the company’s contribution to this successful project,” adds Dave.

Balcony Systems Ltd specialises in sophisticated balustrading solutions, supplying elegant glass/aluminium balustrades and Juliette balconies, straight or curved, to complement all property styles. In many cases, the glass balustrades require no vertical supports to give a clear view to the outside at a fraction of the cost of alternative glazed systems.
