Sunrock Balconies at The Landscape Show

Sunrock have a stand at the International trade exhibition The LANDSCAPE Show at Battersea Park, London on September 19th – 20th 2017.

Showcasing our Glass Balconies and Glass Balustrades for country homes to city apartments, seaside houses to holiday cottages, from urban lofts and public spaces to commercial buildings and luxury hotels…

The new sensation of the indoor-outdoor experience can relate to all types of living spaces.

A quote from the show’s website states:

The boundaries have been broken. With weatherproof rugs, outdoor kitchens, showers on the terrace and sofas in the garden, the indoor spirit is flowing through our outdoor spaces and creating a new focus for architecture and technology.

The Landscape show is a trade event for landscape architects, garden designers and contractors. Furthermore it is a place to network and source market-leading products like our balconies and balustrades to use in high end projects.

Ullswater Boathouse Balcony update with Sunrock Infinity Glass Balustrades

On Ullswater, in the Lake District, Sunrock Balconies install Infinity Glass Balustrades on the balcony of a stunning stone Boathouse.  The balcony sits directly above the water and the boathouse actually stands in the lake.

Due to the challenge of the existing decking being so high we use 21.5mm rather than 17.5mm laminate toughened glass. Like all glass from Sunrock, it has a 10 year guarantee.

existing balcony decking sitting above frame

The update to the Boathouse balcony gives the occupants amazing views over Ullswater. This is because the infinity glass balustrades are completely frameless, beautifully engineered and ultra-modern.  As a result, they deliver a feeling of space, while at the same time providing a safety barrier compliant with regulations.

Furthermore from inside the Boathouse the view is just as good!

In order to make the glass balustrade fit snuggly under the eaves of the boathouse roof, it is cut to fit.

Curved Glass Balustrades

Sunrock Balconies are near completion of these spectacular curved glass balustrades. The property is in Abersoch, North Wales, overlooking the Harbour.

We are installing Infinity glass balustrading around the first floor balcony, which curves around the house.

Furthermore, the curved glass balustrade has a stainless steel button between each toughened glass panel.

As a result, this looks stunning, whilst still giving uninterrupted views.

glass juliet balcony South Wales

Glass Juliet Balcony South Wales

Sunrock Balconies supply and install this Infinity Glass Juliet Balcony South Wales.

The stone clad house has upstairs french windows, which need the installation of a juliet balcony to conform to building regulations.

As a result, we attach the frameless glass juliet balcony to the stone mullion frame which surrounds the french windows.

The fixings are marine grade stainless steel buttons.

How to fix balustrades to Firestone Rubber Roofing

Sunrock solve the problem of how to fix balustrades to Firestone Rubber Roofing, a single ply membrane used to waterproof a flat roof.

Creating a balcony or decking area using glass balustrades with stainless steel posts on a flat roof with a Firestone rubber roof, or any other waterproof membrane, has its problems.

Care must be taken not to pierce the waterproof membrane otherwise it will compromise the warranty. Which means that we can’t attach the steel posts  on top of the Firestone rubber membrane.

Solution

To get round this, Sunrock fix balustrades to Firestone rubber roofing by using longer stainless steel posts. These attach to the wall below. In this case a rendered wall on one side and on the other, a gutter board.

Furthermore, this will work with any type of waterproof flat roof / membrane. Please always seek the advice of your Builder.

Do you prefer Infinity glass balustrades rather than our Barbican glass and stainless steel balustrades? If so, we now have a method of attaching the infinity glass to a waterproofed flat roof using a special fixing ‘The Infinity Glass Blok‘ that allows water to run off and does not attach directly / pierce the waterproof roof.

The Infinity Glass Blok

Sunrock have added a new type of fixing for Infinity glass balustrades – The Infinity Glass Blok

This new stainless steel fixing Blok allows water off waterproof flat roofs. Furthermore, it is a more minimal design than Infinity Glass Buttons, which allows the glass to be the star rather than the fixings.

Normal fixing for Infinity glass balustrades is in a channel. This is usually top or face fix directly onto the balcony or patio/decking area. So up until now, Sunrock could not attach these frameless glass balustrades to a waterproof flat roof, as water can’t run off on.

However, this new ‘Blok’ type of fixing solves the problem by allowing water to drain off. This is achievable because the Infinity glass blok holds the glass balustrade away from the edge of the building, therefore letting the water drain off rather than trapping it.

So now we can install Infinity Glass Balustrades onto a waterproof flat roof. If you prefer to have glass and stainless steel balustrades on your waterproofed flat roof balcony we can solve that problem too – please contact us

Here are some examples of the new fixing

Wet Painting Balcony Frames

The images show progress so far, showing the custom made steel balcony frame which has been wet painted to colour match the woodwork on the house it is being attached to. The balcony legs are still covered in blue plastic to protect them, whilst they are set in concrete.
