Juliet Balconies



There has been a trend recently for new buildings to include juliet balconies (or juliette balconies as they are sometimes known) for decorative and practical purposes. Juliet balconies are named after the famous scene the Romeo and Juliet play by Shakespeare. They have previously been popular on the continent but are now appearing more and more in this country.

Glasson Metalworks design, manufacture and install juliet balconies of the highest quality. We manufacture juliet balconies for private houses, building developments, apartments, flats, nursing homes, student accommodation and hospitals.

Bespoke Design

We offer bespoke designed Juliet balconies which will improve any type of building. Our standard juliet balconies are made from steel with a galvanized and powder coat finish for strength and low maintenance. If you want a more contemporary design, we can create a Juliet balcony from stainless steel and glass.

The juliet balcony is not really a balcony. It is a 'pretend' balcony which doesn't stick out from the building. They provide a safety barrier by means of the balustrades or railings at the front of the balcony with the major advantage that you can then have French windows or a patio door instead of a conventional window.

Why choose Juliet Balconies?

•             They are easy to fit and simple to install being bolted onto the external masonry of a building.
•             Planning permission is generally not required
•             They are ideal for adding increased light and ventilation to a room.
•             They can provide an area for a window box or perfect mini-garden
•             They look beautiful!

Steel or Glass?

The trend these days are for Juliet balconies to have a more open less ‘cagey’ appearance so many people choose glass. Glass juliet balconies are unobtrusive, looking clean and contemporary. They are effectively maintenance free and suitable for even the most corrosive seaside or coastal properties.

The main purpose of the juliet balcony however is safety – it protects a full height opening where a protection from fall is essential. The resident will feel safer and prefer to rest on a metal handrail rather than just glass. A steel handrail is really the best option as it is strong, economical and versatile.

Design is all important
