“It’s an easy choice for a developer as a value add-on”
Lumon’s glazing systems add value to any balcony by turning unprotected outdoor spaces into places with protection from the weather, providing more room for life. For developers and architects, glazing provides an easy opportunity to implement a value add-on.
5 ways balcony glazing adds appeal and value to city housing
The discussion surrounding housing that is ‘too expensive’ is all too common in today’s world. At the same time, residents and homebuyers are more and more demanding of what their home should look like, despite the high prices. This creates a paradox, where developers and builders must focus on building efficient buildings which also serve the more complex desires of homeowners.
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.”
4 ways balcony glazing promotes a sustainable lifestyle
Energy savings is a hot topic, and it deserves our attention as well. The world is in the middle of an energy crisis that is impacting everyone. Being at home has also become a familiar concept to many in the past years, but what about the energy costs that are now involved with being at home? How can we move towards more energy-efficient living, without compromising on comfort?
Customer feedback is a continuous topic of interest regarding product development
Product development is about much more than brainstorming amongst engineers. I have become very familiar with Lumon’s glazing products during my nearly 30-year career with the company while serving various roles over this period. Simply put, the task of product development is to sustain our status as the best supplier of glazing in the industry.
Balcony glazing protects structures and reduces renovation needs
The urbanisation in the 1960s has significantly contributed to the increased popularity of balconies. The target serviceable life of balconies is around 50 years, but balconies don’t necessarily withstand tough weather conditions as long as this. The serviceable life is affected by the surface disintegration, structural quality and water proofing method of the balcony. Balcony glass installations and water guidance arrangements will reduce the intensity of surface disintegration. More than 75 % of all balconies in Finland have been provided with glazing systems. More than 90 % of the balconies in new multi-storey buildings are provided with glazing systems during the construction stage already.
Beyond architectural beauty: Making intelligent, sustainable buildings
The field of architecture is constantly evolving and changing. With its multi-faceted nature, there are more and more things to take into consideration as professionals. One of the things, of course, is energy-efficient thinking in collaboration with building science.
