Retractable balcony glass is the perfect solution
The weather in Canada is well regarded as very harsh and difficult to deal with. This harsh weather leads to a very limited amount of time for Canadians to spend time on their balcony. Often, as soon as the weather turns windy, rainy or cold, balconies become unusable. Even when the weather is pleasant, balconies still need to be cleared of leaves and bird droppings, and outdoor furniture must be dried. This is a constant problem we've detected and it's a problem that we are determined to fix!
Lumon’s retractable balcony glass solves these problems by providing homeowners many advantages with the added flexibility of being able to open and close the glass balcony panels as desired.
What is frameless retractable glass?
Unlike typical frameless glass sliding doors, our frameless retractable balcony glass opens fully and folds tidily against an interior wall. Because they fold to the inside, our glass panes are easy to use and maintain. They can also be secured to prevent them from moving with the wind.
While glass may suggest something delicate, our balcony glass is designed and tested to stand up to strong winds and harsh conditions—while still looking sleek and elegant.
Our product is designed, engineered and tested in Finland and because of this, will be well suited for the weather in Canada! We have enclosed countless balconies all across Canada including cities like Toronto, Hamilton and Vancouver!
Types of balcony glass
Although we can customize our Lumon balcony glass system for almost any use, the most common applications are railing-to-roof balcony glass and floor-to-roof balcony glass.
Railing-to-roof balcony glass is designed to work with existing balcony rails, extending from the top of the railing to the ceiling.
Alternatively, we can replace your existing balcony railing with a Lumon glass balcony railing, available with or without vertical posts. Lumon railings and Lumon balcony glass look phenomenal together and create little visual obstruction.
All options for balcony glass are beautiful and our design consultants will use their expertise to provide guidance as to which system would best suit your needs and your project!
Floor-to-roof balcony glass sits inside the balcony railing, providing another simple and elegant solution.
Regardless of which option you choose, you’ll love the refined and minimalist look of our balcony glass. You’ll be amazed at how light it feels and how easily it opens and closes—all while having the strength to withstand winds of 300 km an hour!
Zoning Requirements For Balcony Glass
Lumon balcony glass is CCMC approved (Canadian Construction Materials Centre) and meets zoning requirements for condo balconies.
Our team will also work with you to get approvals from your strata council or condo board. Our frameless retractable balcony glass is not considered a permanent enclosure and, therefore, does not count towards total square footage.
I am so pleased to have control of the weather on my balcony. The tempered glass has reduced the highway noise and I can now leave my balcony sliding doors open. No more wind, dust, rain, snow or grime. I would definitely recommend the Lumon window enclosures for anyone who wants to make better use of their outdoor space.
