In recent times glass has become synonymous with minimal design and modern buildings. Its use internally and externally upon buildings in the UK has rocketed over the last twenty years, with more ambitious designs and advancements in technology allowing for impressive structural glass facades, sleek barriers and curved glass installations to create stunning looking modern buildings.
The trend for ‘all glass’ installations, sleek exteriors, and airy interiors filled with light is here to stay. From large commercial developments to small residential builds and refurbishments the desire for clean lines and simple glazing installations is widespread.
For the most part, the fixtures and fittings accompanying glass and glazing installations are in keeping with the demand for clean lines and minimal design. For example, frameless glass balustrades profiles which discretely secure the glass whilst not overpowering the overall aesthetic appearance. However certain applications can be compromised by clunky, cumbersome fittings.
Until recently the range of product solutions available for glass Juliette balcony applications was fairly limited, with an amalgamation of products often being used to create the installation. Although often practical and simple using glass clamps, point fixings, or bespoke metalwork, the overall design can be spoilt by the fixings, disrupting the eye visually and distracting from the ‘all glass’ look.
The SKYFORCE Juliet Balcony System by ONLEVEL has quickly become a firm favourite since its launch in 2016. It’s early uptake by bright eyed Architects and contractors lead to increased recognition and admiration of the systems sleek appearance and capability for providing aesthetically pleasing building exteriors.
The SKYFORCE system has become the ‘go to’ system for Juliet balconies, not just because of its unobtrusive minimal look. It’s a massive hit with installers due to its simplicity and ease of installation.
With installers seeing the benefit of easy installation, Architects, contractors and alike are keen to specify the system because of the real pound £ savings the system provides with shorter installation times. All sets are preassembled and can easily save up to 30 minutes of installation time when compared to all other standard products.
Furthermore, the SKYFORCE system can be mounted onto the cover profile, (no matter which material), the wall, into the jamb, onto the insulation and the shutter guides. Making the system a truly diverse, multi surface solution. As with all ONLEVEL products, safe is paramount, SKYFORCE has been tested on spans up to 3,000mm.Further Information:
