Increased living space
Lumon glazing solutions provide increased living space, giving more room for life
Nowadays, it is common for newly built apartments to feature at least one balcony, with the idea is that people should have direct access to outside air in urban environments. However, balconies are often unused, or at best used as a storage room. There is several reasons for this: balconies can be windy and become wet when it rains, get dirty when the leaves fall onto the balcony in autumn, and sometimes small animals, such as birds, use it as their home. All of this is simply because the balcony is built to be totally open. Therefore, the utilisation of balconies is typically very low.
According to independent research conducted in Europe, the cost of installing frameless openable balcony glazing and thereby protecting balconies is only a fraction of the additional investment that customers are willing to make to obtain the benefits. These benefits include the ability to use the balcony almost year-round due to the absence of snow, water, dirt, trash, or leaves, as well as the fact that small animals cannot access the balcony. Instead, the balcony becomes a comfortable sunroom where residents can enjoy nature.
Glazed balconies can create additional usable space for occupants, providing a comfortable outdoor area for relaxation or entertainment.
