Eco-friendly glass balconies from Balcony Systems

Clear glass balconies from Balcony Systems are now even ‘greener’ thanks to the company’s innovative self-cleaning glass coating that eliminates the use of strong chemicals to keep them clean.

Factory-applied to both sides of the glass, the patented coating creates a super-smooth surface that repels water, dirt and grime more quickly to reduce the cleaning cycle by around 90 per cent. Instead of harsh chemicals, a wipe down with a wet cloth is all that’s needed to restore the sparkle.

Available across its entire range of glass and aluminium balustrading, glass Juliet balconies and curved sliding patio doors, the self-cleaning glass coating is an important element of Balcony’s Green Policy in contributing to the company’s environmental credentials and reducing the carbon footprint of its products.

“Our special coating has three major advantages; it gives glass added impact resistance, protection from the elements and dramatically reduces regular cleaning,” explains Effi Wolff, Balcony Systems Managing Director.

“Over time, the microscopic ‘peaks’ and ‘valleys’ on the surface of untreated glass traps dirt particles, which cannot be removed - even by strong chemical cleaning agents,” he continues. “That’s why, over time, glass discolours and becomes more opaque. Our coating evens out the surface so nothing can stick and keeps the glass cleaner, while also helping to prolong its lifespan.”

Effi adds: “Today’s building products must meet many types of criteria, from strength and aesthetics to legislative, regulatory and sustainable requirements. By reducing the need for regular cleaning and use of chemical cleaners, our self-cleaning glass coating further demonstrates our commitment to respect for the environment in which we live.”

Balcony Systems is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Juliette balconies, balustrades and curved patio doors. Its products offer a complete solution for architects, property developers, builders, homeowners and self-builders.

Balcony’s curved patio doors and classy balustrades have the genuine WOW factor that makes architects, builders and homeowners very excited. It’s a key reason that sales have been growing throughout the recession. Balcony’s products – Juliette, balustrades and curved patio doors – define a building. They help new buildings sell quickly and transform existing buildings.

Balcony’s products are cleverly designed to make the most of the view with a minimum of posts and fixing points to disrupt the eye. They use anodised aluminium in place of stainless steel so they continue to look good even in corrosive coastal areas where stainless steel is no longer stainless. The curved patio doors and curved balustrades are simply stunning.

Balcony’s growth and the growth in enquiries have encouraged it to tell its story to the wider market, and to architects and developers. In particular there is a need to find more of the right kind of installation companies to help homeowners and tackle more ambitious projects.
