  • 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.

Rare are such products that allow for as fast compensation of their environmental impacts as the balcony and terrace glazing solutions. It takes, on average, somewhat over three years to compensate for the negative environmental impacts that result from the manufacture, transport and installation of the glazing, besides considering the energy savings that have been obtained through using the glazing.

  • Smell of New York in a coastal town

    I look around the balcony of my family friends; I have been here several times before but somehow note again the basic details. The balcony is large enough, nice furniture, the balcony glazing is made by Lumon, type Lumon 2. The balcony shades are new. They were not in place last time I was here. They have been made in the neighbouring municipality and the deal was closed by phone in Kouvola, I remember. “They are good”, the lady of the house in the living room praises, when she discovers me looking at the new shades.
