Glass balconies add style to coastal location

Another development of luxury apartments – this time on the scenic coast of Yorkshire – has specified Neaco’s range of glass balconies, balustrade and aluminium decking.

The complex of 32 properties includes Neaco’s balustrade installed to a terrace to the front of the building, their standard Juliet balcony designs throughout and a number of the company’s bespoke walk-on balcony designs with their aluminium grille systems used as flooring. The balconies and balustrade include aluminium stanchions and rails specified in a black powder coated finish which complements the tinted glass panels.

Neaco’s National Sales Manager, Peter Melia, said:

“This development used our original and most popular Juliet balcony design, with glass secured between a toprail above and subtle circular brackets below. This design eliminates the need for supporting stanchions and provides superbly minimalist aesthetic with a predominance of glass.”

Featuring an innovative T-bar grille profile, Neaco’s grille systems are designed to provide a large foot contact area – typically between 74 per cent and 100 per cent on balcony applications – whilst enabling efficient drainage of rainwater. The systems are extremely versatile and also ideal for a wide range of alternative uses, including ventilation, cladding, access walkways and solar shading louvres.

Neaco’s aluminium handrails and balustrade are available in a wide range of other powder coated finishes, including various solid and metallic colours and wood-effect. They also manufacture balustrade solutions in stainless steel for a particularly high-class appearance and extremely hard wearing performance with no ongoing maintenance required to maintain its visual quality. Different grades can be supplied to suit different environments – for example, typically Grade 316 for external use and Grade 304 for dry internal use. Other balustrade infill options include rails, tension wire, perforated panels and mesh. Neaco also offers structural glass systems with no supporting uprights for maximum visibility and a minimalist aesthetic.
