Glass and aluminium balcony facades
Glass and aluminium are materials that support sustainable development. By using these materials it is possible to design light feeling structures. Together they integrate the balcony facade, balustrades and balcony glazing systems to create a durable structure. There is no water sill required between balustrade and the balcony glazing system. Even when seated there is an unobstructed view from the balcony.
The aluminium colour can be chosen to match the overall building’s colour. Various available balustrade fixing methods, variety of profiles and colours employ imagination. Glass as infill material enables the use of versatile and nuanced options. In addition to the basic selection of Lumon’s laminated glass it is also possible to make very personalized, nuanced and even patterned surfaces. Furthermore, balustrade infill selection is not restricted to glass. Louvers that can be moved on tracks create protection and give a rhythm to the facade.
