What is balcony glazing?

Balcony glazing is the glazing around the balcony of a building or house. These glazing sheets are installed for a number of reasons, including aesthetics, insulation, noise reduction, and blocking the wind. Balcony glazing can essentially turn a balcony into an extra indoor space that can be used in all weather conditions, while still allowing you to enjoy the view and fresh air when desired.

Benefits of Balcony Glazing

Balcony glazing offers a number of benefits. We highlight the most important ones for you.

1. Increases the value of the property

By adding balcony glazing, you not only increase the living space, but also the potential value of your home. It’s like adding an extra room with a beautiful view. Who wouldn’t want that?

2. Improves energy efficiency

Have you ever thought about how much heat from the sun you lose in the windows of your balcony? With the right glazing, you can reduce heat loss and thus improve the energy efficiency of your home.

Plastic sheets as balcony glazing

Acrylic, also known as acrylic glass, is a popular choice for balcony glazing because of its light weight, high transparency and impact resistance. Acrylic is also UV resistant, meaning it retains its brightness even after prolonged exposure to the sun. Moreover, it has excellent weather resistance, making it an ideal choice for outdoor installations such as balcony glazing.

Polycarbonate is another highly suitable material for balcony glazing. It is extremely robust and impact resistant, which makes it perform particularly well in environments where severe weather or potential vandalism could be an issue. In addition, polycarbonate has good thermal properties, contributing to the energy efficiency of the home.
