‘We love our Balconette balustrade; we are the envy of all our neighbours!’
Proving you are never too old for DIY in your seventies, proud owner Mr Hazard installed this beautiful 14-metre-long Balconette balustrade on the back of a new kitchen extension with a little help from his wife.
“Everything fitted perfectly. It took a week to install by myself – partly due to the weather – and with a little assistance from my wife. Not bad for a first-time fitter of 70+,” he says.
The householder’s internet research led them to the Balconette website and the couple chose the company’s Aerofoil Glass Balustrade System with its distinctive wing-shaped handrail and base track in a Silver anodised finish to protect the 22-inch drop from the new decking area.
Mrs Hazard comments: “We liked the product and our son, who is in the building trade, approved.”
The reason for their Balconette balustrade choice over other products was because Mr H preferred ‘the fact that each pane of glass did not need a separate post fixing and posts were not required at the corners’.
“We wanted as seamless a balcony as possible and the Aerofoil balustrade certainly achieves that,” he continues having always been a keen DIY-er, taking time to carefully think each job through before starting.
He found the installation was ‘relatively simple’, following the instructions at each step and emphasises how Balconette’s technical advice and drawings regarding fitting the fixing posts were ‘key’ to success.
“Balconette assisted by supplying detailed drawings of where each post plate needed to be fitted after we sent a detailed measurement plan to their engineer. Every measurement was absolutely perfect, and fitting was trouble-free.”
Although the cost was ‘a little more expensive’ than they first budgeted for, the couple say on examining the product and viewing the completed installation, ‘it was worth it’. The balustrade worked out as half the total cost of the build.
Visitors are ‘extremely impressed’ with the balustrade, says Mrs Hazard, adding: “We love our Balconette balustrade, which hopefully will provide some shelter from the westerly winds. Over last winter we have had lovely patterns on the glass and pretty reflections from the outdoor lights.
“We are the envy of all our neighbours. We now have a fully accessible outdoor space with minimum steps to our large garden…just the place to enjoy a coffee and evening meal in the summer. We certainly recommend Balconette!”
Balconette Balustrade Opens up New Vistas and a Space to Socialise, all year round.
Keeping beautiful views over three counties from the patio decking at this Herefordshire home was of paramount importance – and this smart Balconette balustrade fits the bill perfectly.
With the advent of better weather and easing of restrictions, this Balconette Aerofoil Glass Balustrade System creates a social space on patios where guests can lean on the slim but sturdy wing-shaped handrail, chat and admire the view.
The patio, complete with table and chairs, flows around a recently built orangery and is accessed via two sets of bi-fold doors.
“We needed a balustrade to protect the five-foot drop to the garden below, but didn’t want bannister rails or spindles as these would spoil the nice view. We wanted something that would blend in, but wouldn’t obstruct the view, which is why the Aerofoil System is absolutely perfect,” said owners Mr & Mrs Webb, who discovered Balconette browsing the internet and are now Balconette Ambassadors.
Although at first undecided whether to have a frameless balustrade system or one with a handrail, they are glad they opted for the latter. “With the rail on top, we do find that people tend to lean on it, look at the view and have a chat. It’s more social; so, I’m pleased we went with the handrail option.”
Having spoken to the Balconette team about their requirements, the couple ordered the Aerofoil glass balustrade, which was fitted by their local builder. They also specified Balconette’s BalcoNano® self-cleaning glass coating, which ‘makes it pretty much maintenance free, it stays clean and tidy for quite a while’.
The 12 metres of glass balustrade features obtuse angles that follow the irregular shape of the patio, amply demonstrating the system’s versatility. The handrail and base track are in Balconette’s resplendent Royal Chrome finish.
“The balustrade generates a lot of interest. A nearby neighbour who came to see it has also ordered from Balconette.”
“The balustrade does look nice and gives a good finish to the whole project. As we are quite high up, we get a great view across Herefordshire. If we have people here on New Year’s Eve, we all go out on the decking, lean against the balustrade and watch the fireworks. It is perfect viewing for New Year’s Eve!
“We’ve got the security, it’s safe but we’ve also not lost the view, which was the main thing we needed more than anything really.”
