To finish off our house in the countryside in Stirlingshire it was important to get the balconies right, I was very satisfied with Balcony Systems to say the least, order, delivery and most importantly it fitted and was installed with no issue. Ok two minor pieces missing bu were sent to us ASAP. Now house complete and balconies are great. What I liked the most was the service from the staff and liaison with our house build third parties to ensure dimension were correct, no issues were... (read more)

We were attracted to the Balcony Systems balustrade because it has no bolts or clamps holding the glass in place, uses very few posts and offers an unobstructed view. It has a handrail - which some systems don't, but it is at a perfect height for leaning on whilst standing, and is high enough to give an unobstructed view when seated. The glass is held in place top and bottom by glazing strips which are an integral part of the handrail, and the low profile base rail which is fixed to the... (read more)

I am very pleased with my new Juliet balcony. The installation instructions and associated diagram were as clear as the very clear glass and easy to follow. I chose the Royal Chrome balcony with self-cleaning glass and it looks fantastic. I found Balcony Systems and their product range on the internet after extensive searching. Balcony Systems have been easy to deal with and very efficient. The product was well packaged and delivered quickly. When I needed a diagram emailed to me, it was... (read more)

After some extensive research it became obvious that Balconette offered great value for money. The balcony itself is fantastic quality, we're right on the waters edge where the air is very salty, after a year there is no sign of corrosion. We've had great feedback from our guests who can appreciate the views even more than before. The hand rail is a little more substantial than we'd like as it obstructs the view from certain angles, but is does feel substantial and safe. Having replaced the... (read more)

From your glass balustrade we look forty miles across the Herefordshire country side. The view is unimpeded by corner posts and drinking champagne tastes even better out in the fresh air! Thanks for your friendly, helpful service to enable us to live our dream. (read more)

Loved the clean simple lines of our Juliette Balcony. The glass really improves our view, and the top rail blends in with the house, (bronze anodised). Friends have commented how smart it looks and what an improvement on the wooden balcony it replaced. (read more)

After much research we decided to use Balcony Systems for our new build house. As the location was close to the sea it was imperative that the product had total protection from the salt air as well as modern contemporary looks. We commissioned a large curved balcony and two Juliette balconies and had many conversations with helpful and friendly staff. We were kept informed at all stages of design, ordering and delivery. Quality was also important as well as support from the Balcony Systems... (read more)

I recently purchased and self fittted a glass balcony with bronze hand rail from Balconette.co.uk. The service I received from ordering to receiving the goods was excellent.

I tried to order over the phone as website was not working correctly, DO NOT do it this way, they make it incredibly hard to order this way. I have to wait for the website to go back up. Next delivery was awful, the driver simply dumped all the products on my driveway without a signature. They agreed to call me 1 hour before delivery so I could come home from work, this did not happen and the goods were left on my drive. They could have been nicked. Support does not exist from this...

We wanted to install a Juliette balcony into our bedroom, and looked at the products being offered by several companies on the web. The eventual choice was Balcony Systems, which we felt offered the best value, and product appearance of the many on offer. We ordered the product on line, and the whole experience was easy right through to delivery, (most impressive). The balcony was easy to install, is pleasing to the eye, and very strong. We are delighted with the new view we have obtained of... (read more)

We have recently moved to a house with its reception rooms on the first floor - with potentially great views limited by standard size windows. By enlarging two windows down to first floor level and fitting french doors with glass-fronted balconies we have transformed the outlook.
We enquired and found that we did not require planning permission for this, we simply had to pay for two inspections by Building Control but that did not present any difficulties.
The balcony kit was ingeniously... (read more)

I still find it hard to belive how quick and easy the system went together.With a small amount of DIY will and armed with an electric drill I doubt if there is anyone in this land that could not put this system together and end up with a stuningly proffessional finish. With the additional advantage of saving yourself at least 50% against businesses that fit it as well. If you watch the vidio a 10 year old could put it together.

It was just what we wanted and suits our 1980s house. With a bronze handrail, the balcony looks lovely and, of course, being glass there is no maintenance and no need to paint railings.
An added benefit is protection from the wind, so we can enjoy countryside views from the south-facing balcony all year round - even in winter. A system we happily recommend
