Juliet Balcony in Kidderminster

Origin recently completed this installation of a Skyforce Juliet balcony in Kidderminster. Once again Origin set innovative trends with the Skyforce fall protection for Juliet balconies. Skyforce was (and we think still is!) the first practically invisible system application. What is even better is that is the best and most cost-effective system on the market. We don’t think that there is any system that can be mounted as quickly and as easily as Skyforce.

The Skyforce face fixed profiles are 50mm wide. On this application in Kidderminster, the width of the outside window frames was only 30mm. This wasn’t a problem for us. Working with our customer we recommended that rather than having a face-fixed Skyforce balcony, they instead went for a side-fixed version. The profiles were supplied from stock in a natural anodised finish. We did offer the customer the opportunity to powder coat the profiles to a particular RAL but they were very happy with the standard natural anodised finish (which is a smart dark silver).

Measuring the glass with the side fixed profile could not be easier. You simply measure from outside of profile to outside of profile and deduct 45mm. You can then calculate the width of the panel. In this instance, it wasn’t much over 1000mm wide. We recommended that the customer use 17.5mm toughened laminate glass. We delivered the profile to the customer on a next-day delivery. The lead time on the glass was in this instance not much more than a week. The customer could not believe the lead times!

In terms of the fixings, the customer was fixing into concrete. We supplied Ficher anchor bolts to allow the customer to complete the installation. The customer was concerned to ensure that the balcony fully complied with building regulations. We subsequently supplied them with a test certificate showing that the balcony had been fully tested to the required line load test which for a domestic balcony at height.

The customer was absolutely delighted with the end result. She had a safe and secure Juliet Balcony that looked fantastic in her home in Kidderminster.
