slim sliding doors and windows with juliet balconies

minimal windows® sliding doors have been installed to the front of the house which allows more light through to the kitchen and living room. These additions allow the owners of the house to create indoor-outdoor living spaces from the indoor areas to the spacious gardens that surround the home. Merging the living room and kitchen with the patio creating a much larger open space. These slim framed sliding doors have also been mirrored at the back of the house allowing all sides of the house to benefit from an increase in natural light ingress.

To the upper floors minimal windows have been used to continue the flow of light and space throughout the home. To achieve this, mirrored glazing design on the upper floors minimal windows® sliding doors have been engineered into minimal glass Juliet balconies. As the sliding windows open, frameless glass balustrades have been integrated to create these minimal glass Juliet balconies. By using slim framed windows, there is no obstruction to the views of the woods surrounding the house.

Several small glass extensions have been built onto the front of the house from the kitchen. These glass extensions have integrated minimal windows® within the structural glass design allowing more space as well as letting more natural light in from various angle

minimal glass juliet balconies details

Both of the minimal glass Juliet balconies follow the same design process and size. The balconies were added to ensure the sliding windows comply with Building Safety Regulations. However, the homeowner was concerned about an internal balcony addition effecting the views. Due to the frameless design of these glass Juliet balconies, all views are unhindered with the residents safeguarded.

The minimal glass Juliet balconies (or glass balustrades) are 776mm wide by 1100mm high. This is the usual high of the minimal windows handle, therefore both handles have been installed much higher. Only one track of the sliding system had to be covered by a balustrade due to the second track containing a fixed pane.
