Paris Balconies Bring Light And Views To Urban Spaces

by | Jun 25, 2024 | On-Site

Connecting indoor and outdoor spaces seamlessly has become a crucial requirement of modern architecture. Whether you’re in a bustling city apartment or a tranquil rural retreat, the ability to enjoy the view, flood interiors with natural light, and blend the boundaries between inside and out is key. The Paris Balcony system by CRL is designed not only to enhance natural light but also to prioritise safety and enhance aesthetic appeal.

At the heart of the Paris Balcony system is its frameless design, which creates a sleek and streamlined finish. Suitable for use with toughened laminated glass in thicknesses of 13.52mm, 17.52mm, and 21.52mm, the system offers clarity and durability. The 1200mm long profiles can be seamlessly integrated into various architectural structures, whether face fixed or reveal fixed to brickwork, concrete, or steel, says CRL.

With options available in both grey and white finishes, the Paris Balcony system is said by the company to ‘effortlessly blend with any design’.

The system also has a commitment to safety. Tested to comply with stringent building and safety regulations, including BS6180:2011, this system prioritises the well-being of its users without compromising on style. According to CRL, unlike traditional balcony designs that rely on cumbersome railings, the Paris Balcony system opts for a minimalist approach, offering an uninterrupted view while ensuring the utmost security.

With no top cap rail required, the toughened laminated glass provides an additional layer of protection, assuring peace of mind for inhabitants.

Two recent installations by Bespoke Glass Services highlight the versatility and efficiency of the CRL Paris Balcony system. In the picturesque setting of Upper Cumberworth, a large barn conversion was fitted with two Paris Balconies, chosen for their minimalist design and seamless integration with existing aesthetics. The anthracite grey option worked perfectly with the timber-framed structure, while the absence of railings preserved the panoramic views.

Similarly, in Lower Cumberworth, a large semi-detached house embraced the Paris Balcony system to maintain uninterrupted vistas over sprawling fields. Opting for the white finish ensured a cohesive look with the PVC windows, while the smooth reveal facilitated a hassle-free installation process.

In both instances, the CRL Paris Balcony system was said to have exceeded expectations, delivering not only on functionality but also on ease of installation. Compared to traditional methods involving point fixings, the Paris Balcony system offered a straightforward and swift installation process.

As urban landscapes continue to evolve, the demand for innovative architectural solutions that blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces looks set to increase. With its emphasis on maximising natural light, optimising views, and prioritising safety, the Paris Balcony system by CRL offers a contemporary solution.
