Balcony glass in Vancouver, Toronto or anywhere in Canada is a huge improvement over an open balcony or fixed-glass solarium. Our balcony glass can be opened or closed, providing the ultimate in flexibility and comfort.
In addition, balcony glass has the following benefits:
Benefit #1: Increases usable living space
When protected by balcony glass, your balcony transforms from an occasionally useable space to one you can use almost any time.
When the weather is cold, wet or windy, you can keep the balcony glass closed for protection. When the weather is warm and pleasant, you can open up the balcony glass and let in fresh air.
If the weather is somewhere in between, you can choose to have the balcony glass partially open.
Benefit #2: Doesn't count toward gross floor space
Because our balcony glass can open and close, it doesn’t create a permanent, thermally sealed enclosure. (Rather becoming a new interior room, the balcony enclosure continues to function as—and maintains the character of—an outdoor space.)
As a result, the enclosed balcony doesn’t count towards your total square footage.
Benefit #3: Protects your balcony and furnishings
With balcony glass, your balcony structure and furnishings are protected from outside elements, reducing repairs and maintenance.
Benefit #4: Reduces noise and increases safety
Our balcony glass not only acts as a windbreak against wind and rain, it also reduces noise by 50% and adds an extra layer of safety for children and pets.
Benefit #5: Reduces energy consumption
When kept closed during the colder months, balcony glass reduces energy consumption, allowing you to heat your home more efficiently, with less heat loss.
I bought my condo because of the solarium with the Lumon retractable balcony glass. These glass panels have created a living space which is pure comfort and a balcony that is all season, because of the opening and closing of the glass panels at will for fresh air or temperature. As well, the features of safety when my young grandchild visits and building security is ideal!
