Lumon balcony glazing brings lots of benefits
Balcony glazing is an excellent solution for architects, contractors or property owners looking to create a more comfortable, functional, and energy-efficient living space, while reducing noise pollution. Balcony glazing can help to preserve the exterior of the building and extend the usage time of the balcony by 30 years or more, while also providing numerous benefits for building owners and occupants.
Moreover, glazed balconies can also enhance the value of the property by improving the appearance of the building’s exterior, enhancing living comfort, and providing more room for life for occupants. It is an excellent investment for those looking to create a more sustainable and energy-efficient living space.
Added property value
Balcony glazing can be a valuable addition to a property, providing additional living space, energy efficiency, enhanced aesthetics, and improved functionality. These benefits can increase the value of the property and make it more attractive to potential buyers or renters, resulting in a higher selling price or rental rate.
Balcony glazing preserves the exterior of the building by providing a protective layer that shields the balcony and the building behind it. The need for balcony renovations will be reduced by 50%, and maintenance intervals for the balcony structure will be expanded by 5-10 years.
Increased living space
The glazing system can increase the annual usability time of the balcony by 1 to 2.5 months, and some balconies can even be used throughout the year.
Several independent groups have conducted studies of Lumon balcony glazing systems. These studies have found that balcony glazing can help reduce heat consumption as well as provide remarkable energy savings. Studies made at the Tampere University of Technology have shown that in typical Central European climate conditions, cuts in energy costs in an apartment behind a Lumon glazed balcony can reach up to 16%, a remarkable saving.
Lumon balcony glazing can reduce the amount of noise while improving the quality of live and the value of the property. Retractable balcony glazing aims to maximise noise reduction on balconies, while still remaining an unsealed space, ensuring adequate ventilation. On average, the results for sound insulation on a typical balcony with glazing vary from 4dB-12dB. With acoustic planning, this can be enhanced to up to 20dB.
Excellence in outdoor living design
Lumon is growing and developing into its own phenomenon – a globally significant company in the balcony and terrace market. While the recognition of balcony glazing products can be seen as a benefit, this also poses a challenge on the company’s products: Meeting even the toughest international expectations and requirements.
The rise in wellness architecture
Architectural spaces have long been recognized to promote social order and interaction with others as well as the environment. However, the connection of architecture and wellness has only become a popular topic in recent years, the pandemic acting as a catalyst in the conversation. In 2022, the theme of the World Architecture Day was even coined: “Architecture for well-being.” The discourse around wellness and architecture has given birth to a concept fitting in its name: “wellness architecture.”
