Lumon Railing and Glass Enclosures can transform your building!
Canada is well known for its harsh climate. A common Canadian winter is known to be cold, snowy and very windy, all of which have a negative impact on the building structures. Regular building maintenance can become a very costly expenditure over the lifetime of the building. Lumon's balcony glass offers a solution to these issues by providing numerous benefits for both the building owner and residents.
Lumon balcony railing and glass enclosures are great tools in creating usable outdoor space for residents and increasing property value for the property owners.
I certainly see the Lumon balcony glass system as an attractive option for owners or strata corporations looking for a way to improve energy conservation or to simply maximize the use of outdoor balcony space all year round.

What are Lumon balcony solutions for façade renovations?
A Lumon glass balcony façade combines modern aluminum railings with frameless retractable glass panels that go above the railings, creating an elegant and contemporary glass balcony façade system. They can be customized to fit existing railings and building structures.
Lumon's balcony glazing system is a glass balcony enclosure that has the unique ability to fully retract and allow the resident to fully open or fully close their balcony. This system is completely frameless, which allows for unobstructed views for the residents of the building as well as easy use and maintenance when considering the retractability of the system.
Types of balcony glazing
Although our balcony glass system can be highly customized to best suit the project, the most common types of balcony glass are railing-to-roof balcony glazing and floor-to-roof balcony glazing.
Railing-to-roof balcony glass has been engineered and designed to be retrofitted on already existing rails. This type of balcony glass will extend from the top of the rail to the ceiling.
Floor-to-roof balcony glass has glass panels extending from the floor of the balcony to the ceiling of the balcony. Floor-to-roof balcony glass sits inside the railing which provides an elegant solution to your balcony!
Whether you choose railing-to-roof balcony glass, floor-to-roof balcony glass, or a customized balcony glass to best fit the space, residents will fall in love with having an elegant balcony that gives them a more usable and versatile space in their home, leading to significantly higher resident satisfaction.

We have now had our window glass enclosure installed for several months. We’ve had some strong winds, measured to up to ~100km/h. On windy days, we keep the glass windows shut and can still be on the balcony, as if it was a calm day. That is wonderful. … In summary, we now have a balcony that is usable for almost 10 months of the year. We love our glass enclosures.
