The history of Juliet Balconies and how are they seen in the present day

Balconies are platforms projected from the building walls and most of the time they are supported by console brackets and columns. They are an incredible vista for the person that steps outside but at the same time, balconies can offer a breath of fresh air and a place of reminiscence.

The history of balconies

Balconies have been around for quite some time but the most popular one is definitely the Juliet Balcony. This particular type of balcony is obviously inspired by the play Romeo and Juliet written by Shakespeare in which Juliet is sitting in a balcony while being courted by Romeo. Even if the play on its own doesn’t state that Juliet is at a balcony, many artists have portrayed her at a balcony in a variety of artworks based on the popular play.

As you can see from the image, there are quite a lot of things that characterize a Juliet balcony, one of them being the fact that it’s not an imposing structure. In fact, it doesn’t protrude much out of the building and most of the time it’s integrated into the upper floor, the only thing that makes it look like a balcony being a small balustrade that can be found in the front.

In the 1600′s, the timeline to which the play is referring, these balconies were made almost entirely out of stone and they were placed very high. That’s why Romeo actually has to use a high ladder in order to get to it.

Throughout the years the Juliet balconies didn’t really evolve that much, at least when it comes to the overall function and design. The main difference in the modern Juliet Balcony include the placement of stainless steel handrails and a glass barrier in front of a high window; however, there are places where you can still find stone based balconies, with many of them being made out of concrete as well.

Types of traditional balconies

You can find multiple types of traditional balconies with design and structure specifics. Usually, there are 3 main types of balconies that can be encountered nowadays and these include:

  • True balconies, which have railings and a deck floor. These usually integrate a wide floor and you can walk on the balcony not to mention that you can also add furniture, plants or decorations if you want.
  • False balconies integrate a narrow deck and rail and are used mainly to block off an opening door. Modern Juliet balconies fall under this category. Most of the time the false balconies are also used to support plants on the railings, but people cannot walk on the balcony.
  • Faux balconies basically consist traditionally out of railings and they don’t have a deck floor. This particular type of balcony will cover the area outside a window and it can be mounted only at 4” away from the wall.

If you truly want to give your home a great appeal and also take its look to the next level, opting for Juliet balconies can be an amazing idea. This allow you to boost the look of your house and it’s also inexpensive, so you should definitely get your own today!

Frameless Glass Balustrade On Parapet Wall With Lots Of Corners

We cant help but boast about our Frameless glass balustrade systems at JBNFix, as they’re not only easy to install and maintain, but look incredible too.

They don’t require the use of posts or glass clamps, so you can enjoy your view with maximum of clarity.

The strength of the system lies in the size of the glass used and the track into which it is set. It is fully tested for  the use of 15mm toughened glass where a handrail is required and 21.5mm laminated toughened glass where it is not.  The result is a very strong, robust and safe balustrade, provided that it is securely fixed to a strong foundation.

One of our latest projects was the installation of our frameless glass balustrade system with 15mm clear toughened glass and stainless steel handrail  to the top of a parapet wall with lots of corners.

The system has been  designed to be free standing structure, however the handrail has been fixed wall to wall, so as to create a fusion between the balustrade and the property as well as  provide additional support. By top mounting it to the existing parapet wall, the system is able to provide an excellent space saving solution, whilst still providing a strong safety barrier.

The finished look is a very subtle juxtaposition, which contrasts a traditional Victorian style with the Modern, minimalistic  Style favoured today.

If you are looking for something that is modern and minimalistic, but stylish please don’t hesitate to contact us. Call us Now on  01342 719 045  Email: info@jbnfix.co.uk
