Upper floors and balconies can benefit from the clear, frameless appearance of the KELLER minimal windows sliding glass door system with Juliete balconies by Prestige Windows + Doors.  By skillfully integrating frameless glass balustrades within the base track of the sliding glass doors, hiding all fixings and support minimally within the aluminium frame, you can create an entirely frameless modern glass Juliet Balcony, maintaining the minimal appearance of the sliding glass door system.  These upper floors sliding balcony glass doors can be designed to mirror the sliding glass doors fitted to lower floors for a uniformed design appearance.  Flush floor finishes can be created internally for a full floor to ceiling glass facade, not broken by unnecessary balustrade fixings, supports or rails.

Juliete screens can also be fitted to Prestige Aluclad floor-to-ceiling opening windows.  Our tilt & turn windows can be made full height, without any transoms or horizontal division.  When opened inward, the Juliet screen will provide the required fall protection from a raised floor level without restricting views out in any way.

How Safe is a Juliet Balcony?

Juliet Balconies are fully certified as fit for use and can handle leaning weights of up to 3 people at once.

Any Juliet balcony installation must follow the guidelines set forth in Part K of the Building Regulations. The top point of this kind of balcony must be at least 110 cm above floor level, per the official safety documents. Moreover, any spaces between the balcony railings, if any, must be no wider than 10 cm.


Benefits of Juliet Balconies

A Juliet Balcony is a great addition to maximise ingress of natural light all year round with the benefit of uninterrupted landscape views. Frameless structural Juliet Balconies are discreet, complementing any architectural style of the exterior facade.

The slim sliding glass doors of the balcony enhances ventilation within the internal living areas once opened. Toughened glass balustrades in front of the sliding glass solutions provide safety on upper floors with easy access for maintenance and cleaning.

Juliet balconies can be specified to any length, however it is important to consider site delivery, installation and moving the balustrade to the place of installation. Due to this, many balustrades will feature “breaks” in the glass panes which can be aligned with the interlocks of the sliding system.
