Custom Engineering a Large Span Juliet Balcony

When it comes to architectural design and home improvements, a Juliet balcony is a dream feature for many homeowners. However, not all balconies are created equal, and there are instances where standard solutions just won’t work.

This was precisely the challenge we faced with one of our clients, who desired a Juliet balcony for a particularly large span that standard products couldn’t accommodate. Here’s how we engineered a custom solution to make their dream a reality.

The Challenge: A Wide Span and No Standard Solution

Our client’s requirement was unique: a Juliet balcony spanning a significantly large area, much wider than what off-the-shelf options could cover.

The primary issue was the distance between the fixing points which was too wide, posing a risk of structural instability and safety concerns with standard Juliet balcony designs. This challenge necessitated a creative and custom-engineered solution.

Our Approach: Combining Strength and Aesthetics

Understanding the unique requirements and the aesthetic aspirations of our client, we decided to engineer a solution that combined both metal and glass.

This combination was not only about achieving the desired look but also ensuring the structural integrity of the balcony over such a large span.

1. Metal Framework for Strength:

The foundation of our solution was a robust metal framework. This framework was designed to withstand the structural loads over the large span.

We used high-grade steel, known for its strength and durability, ensuring the framework could securely anchor to the building and safely support the entire structure.

2. Glass Panel Infill for Aesthetics and Safety:

To complement the metal framework, we opted for glass panel infills. The glass panels not only added a modern and elegant look but also ensured safety without compromising the view.

The use of toughened safety glass was crucial, as it provided the necessary durability and resistance to the elements.

3. Engineering and Design Integration:

Our engineering team worked closely with the design team to ensure that the entire structure not only met the safety standards but also blended seamlessly with the building’s existing architecture.

The design process involved detailed calculations and simulations to ascertain the load distribution, wind resistance, and overall stability of the balcony.

The Result: A Stunning and Safe Juliet Balcony

The final product was a stunning Juliet balcony that spanned the wide area beautifully. The combination of the sleek metal framework and clear glass panels created an almost floating effect, enhancing the building’s façade while providing the safety and stability required.

Our client was thrilled with the result. The balcony added a significant aesthetic value to their property and provided a safe, outdoor space to enjoy the view without any obstructions.
