What is balcony glass?

A stylish and durable balcony solarium

Our systems have been designed to cover and protect your balcony with style. They are designed for years and years of dinner parties and moments worth remembering. That's why they have to be resistant. And they are.

Lumon balcony glass systems consist of two horizontal aluminum profiles mounted on the ceiling, balustrade, or floor structures of the balcony. Tempered glass panes are fastened to the profiles. These 6, 8, 10, or 12 mm thick panes are very easy to slide and fold. The first glass pane is opened by the lower latch and easy to lock in the ventilation position. The other glass panes slide and fold easily. When the panes turn aside, the hinges interlock and thus enable you to open the balcony glass system entirely. Inwards opening balcony glass units are easy to clean safely without any need to reach out from the balcony.

The Lumon balcony systems are extremely resistant to wind and other weather impacts. Lumon was the first company in Europe to get the CE-marking for its balcony glass systems.

Retractable glass

Retractable glass means that our frameless retractable glass can be fully opened. The glass panels open with a handle that is similar to the handle of a car door. Once this has been opened, the glass slides easily to fold against the wall. All of the glass panes can be turned aside, or some can be left open for partial protection. The inner and outer surfaces of the sliding and folding Lumon balcony glass panes are easy to clean safely from the inside of the balcony. When all of the glass panes have been turned aside, they can be locked to prevent them from moving and clattering in the wind.

Tempered glass panes measuring 8, 10, or 12mm thick are fastened to the profiles.
