Balcony Systems adds double-sided self-cleaning coating to glass balconies
Glass balustrading specialist Balcony Systems, www.balconette.co.uk is the first to add a low-cost, self-cleaning glass coating option www.balconette.co.uk to its external and Juliette balconies in response to increasing demand for the ultimate reduced-maintenance solution.
Applied using a special ‘vapour chamber’ process, this unique patented double-sided coating creates a smooth surface that quickly repels water, dirt and grime. Protected from the elements on both sides, glass stays looking clean for longer; requiring just the occasional wipe down with a wet cloth.
The innovative coating can also be applied on all colours of glass, including tinted panels, providing an affordable, readily available and convenient extra benefit for architects, specifiers and designers to offer their clients.
Available now across Balcony Systems’ entire product range, including curved patio doors www.balconette.co.uk the self-cleaning glass coating can be specified at the design stage for bespoke projects or supplied on off-the-shelf Juliette balconies.
Managing Director Effi Wolff comments: “Introducing this self-cleaning glass coating option has put Balcony Systems firmly at the forefront of innovative and practical balcony solutions. It has generated fantastic customer feedback, as well as growing demand from architects for a distinctive feature to offer their clients.”
This maintenance-reducing benefit was the key reason why Rhian and John Powell Jones chose the Balcony Systems Juliette balcony for their new-build home at Harlech, North Wales.
“The self-cleaning glass definitely influenced our choice of balustrading as our house is in an elevated position overlooking the sea. It helps to reduce the amount of cleaning we have to do and it’s easy to look after,” says Rhian.
Nicholas Davies, from Blaenau, Gwent, is also pleased, adding: “We’ve had a lot of work done on the house and, despite this, the Juliette balcony with self-cleaning glass is keeping very clean.”
Similarly, Peter Morley from Taunton, Somerset, reports: “The self-cleaning glass does stay very clean. In the four months since the Juliette balcony was installed, I’ve not had to clean it.”
