When it comes to design elements of your home, especially when it comes to balconies, architects and designers will look at using glass balustrades as a modern designer look and feature for your home. However, many people shy away from this because they have a big fear inside them when it comes to glass. The main concern being safety.


It is understandable, after all, your perception of glass is that it is fragile and could break easily. However, glass balustrades are extremely heavy duty and if bought from a reputable provider, then you can put your mind at ease. You will get the designer look you want, and the safety which is needed for the area to be utilised by everyone. However, you shouldn’t just take our word for it, here is a little more insight into why glass balustrades are safe and also how purchasing through a reputable company can give you the extra peace of mind you need.


Glass balustrades must be made with safety glass



There are UK guidelines in place that specify that glass balustrades must be made using safety glass and there are two types of glass that can be used. Tempered glass and laminated glass.


Tempered or toughened glass


Toughened or tempered glass means that this glass itself is heated to around 700°C and then is cooled quickly, which is known as quenching. The quenching process creates a strong layer on both sides of the glass that locks tension inside. This means that because of this process, tempered glass is four times stronger to impact than regular glass. If it does break, it doesn’t break into large shards like most glass will do, it shatters into small pieces which makes it less dangerous and also easy to dispose of.


Laminated glass


Laminated glass is a bit different. It is made by sandwiching a layer of resin or plastic membrane between two toughened glass panels. Should one of the glass panels break, the membrane then works as a “safety net” and protects the second panel of glass.


It isn’t just about the glass itself 


You also need to take into account that not only is glass part of the glass balustrades option, but you also need to consider the framing and handles. This is when the added extra security can come into play by using specific stainless steel marine grade uprights, fixtures and fittings as well as handrails and frames.


But what about guarantees?


Using glass with metal framing may mean you have the concerns about the longevity of the product. Sunrock Balconies have over a decade of experience and know exactly what it takes to give you the look, security and safety measures you are looking for. Indeed, all Sunrock Balconies, Balustrades and Juliet Balconies are designed, built and installed to pass UK Building Control regulations.


At Sunrock Balconies we create outdoor living rooms using infinity glass designed to your specifications.  We offer a complete end to end service from design to quotation to full installation for both residential and commercial customers.  We can also consult with your architect, contractors or tradesmen to get the best results for your balcony project.

Sipping cocktails from an outdoor pool, partying on a rooftop terrace, or simply relaxing in the garden with your family – a beautiful, uninterrupted view can transform each of these activities into something of an even higher class.


Big, bulky fencing and unsightly brick walls can have a disastrous effect on your attempt to achieve that all important uninterrupted view, but what is the alternative option that can allow you and your guests to fully appreciate the surroundings? You needn’t continue your search for even a second more, as glass balustrades are the ideal option to help you create the perfect open outdoor space that’s free of confines and borders.


Versatility of Glass


The versatility of glass balustrades make them a great fit for almost every location and style preference, adding quality and aesthetic value to any outdoor space within moments of installation. Designing the ideal entertainment spot that’s bound to wow your guests has never been so simple when you make the decision to incorporate glass balustrades, as they can be used for balconies and terraces that require a boundary for safety.

Not only will a glass balustrade keep you and your guests safe at such a height, it will also allow you all to see straight through for miles of uninterrupted views and endless sunlight. Utilising metal fencing or brickwork to create a border will knock several points off your properties aesthetic value, whilst also creating the atmosphere of a compact and claustrophobic space. You simply won’t be able to appreciate the surrounding areas of your property if you do not invest in the most suitable features, so don’t make the mistake of choosing the wrong materials for your needs.

Uninterrupted Views


Sunrock Balconies glass balustrades uninterrupted views


If you have a garden or piece of land that backs onto your property which maintains pleasing views, having to erect a tall wooden fence to identify the borders of your home can have a terrible effect on the way that you are able to appreciate your outdoor space. Again, the feeling of confinement can be amplified with the use of bulky materials, yet glass balustrades offer a whole new aesthetic. Opting to utilise glass balustrades in your garden will allow you and your family to appreciate Mother Nature to her full potential, as uninterrupted views are easy when there’s no fencing or wall standing in your bath. Summer sun soaked barbecues and outdoor get togethers have never been so enjoyable with the addition of a jaw dropping view, so don’t let such a selling point go to waste by investing in the wrong perimeters.


Poolside luxury


Even the luxury of an outdoor pool can be upgraded by the use of glass balustrades, as an unspoilt view appreciated from the water can be a whole new experience without the usual unsightly fencing or brickwork. Nothing says opulence quite like a rooftop infinity pool perfectly partnered with a set of glass balustrades.


There’s no time like the present to invest in your wildest dreams. At Sunrock Balconies we create outdoor living rooms using infinity glass designed to your specifications.  We offer a complete end to end service from design to quotation to full installation for both residential and commercial customers.  We can also consult with your architect, contractors or tradesmen to get the best results for your balcony project.

Sunrock Balconies - Keeping your outside space COVID-19 protected

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted nearly everyone across the globe.

But, as things slowly start to open up again and everyone begins to adjust to a new normal, people are looking for ways to reconnect with friends and family, relax, and have fun – especially during the summer months.

Thankfully, being in your outside space is a great way to enjoy company and stay safe – if you take the right measures to do so.

Before you enjoy time on your balcony, outdoor living room, or looking out over your infinity glass balustrades, it’s important to make sure your outdoor space is clean, sanitised, and protected from potential viruses.

It’s a relatively simple process you can repeat several times this summer to ensure you and your guests stay safe.


Declutter Your Space


A good rule of thumb is to completely empty your outdoor balcony of all furniture, plants, decor, etc. in order to have a clean slate. This will give you the opportunity to properly scrub and sanitise each individual piece, and you won’t have to “work around” items as you wash the deck itself, or the infinity glass that surrounds it.


When you move everything off of your balcony, you also have the chance to clear away any dust and debris. While these things might not spread viruses, they can be harmful to people with respiratory issues. Start your cleaning from the top of the balcony and work your way down.


As often as possible, sanitise anything your family or guests will come in contact with on your balcony or outdoor living room. You can use an easy solution of one part bleach to one part water to sterilise most outdoor surfaces with a mop or sponge.


Keeping Your Guests Safe


In addition to keeping things as clean and sanitised as possible, it’s still important to take proper precautions when gathering in groups. While being outside is helpful and reduces the risk of exposure, it doesn’t completely prevent it.

So, while you might want to reconnect with friends and family, keep your gatherings small and in line with Government guidance. Try to limit your outdoor events to only a few people, if possible. Keep bottles of hand sanitiser available in different spots around your outdoor space for your guests to use as often as they would like.


Additionally, you can make small changes that could make a big difference. For instance, label cups or glasses for each guest so there is no confusion when it comes to drinks. Instead of offering a ‘buffet-style’ option for food, offer pre-made plates, or serve your guests yourself. If people have to go inside to use the bathroom, encourage only one or two people in the house at once.


It’s exciting to be able to spend time outside again with the people you love. But, it is still important for everyone to remain diligent. At Sunrock Balconies, no one loves spending time on a beautiful infinity glass balcony more than us! But, we want to make sure all of our customers, our friends, and our families, remain safe in the wake of this pandemic. Keep these tips in mind throughout the summer to make sure anyone who enjoys your outdoor space stays healthy.

Sunrock Balconies Make the most of your garden during lockdown 1

During the lockdown to protect us in the coronavirus outbreak, many people have found that their garden or balcony has been a godsend.

It provides somewhere to sit outside on sunny days and means that you’re not stuck inside even when you’re at home. If you’re lucky enough to have an outside space to use, knowing how to make the most of it will make your experience of lockdown more pleasant. While people are gradually returning to work and other activities, there’s no telling when we all might be able to get back to normal. In the meantime, it’s worth perfecting your outdoor space so you can make full use of it.

Add Additional Living Space


When you’re spending a lot of time at home, your home can start to feel smaller. However, when you have outdoor space, you can use it to the best of your ability to expand your home. Outdoor living space is a blessing when you want to get out of the house. It might be in the form of a patio or terrace, or perhaps a balcony. You can use outdoor living space to create somewhere to relax, eat, and drink and even cook, too, with an outdoor kitchen or barbecue.


Set Up Somewhere to Sit


Whether you have a small balcony or a sprawling terrace, somewhere to sit and enjoy your garden is essential. You can set up a seating area in several ways, whether it’s with a comfortable sofa, a bistro table and a couple of chairs, or a full dining set. When you’re deciding where to create a seating area, think about the view you will get, the position in relation to the sun and shade, and how you’re going to use the rest of the space that you have available. Choose furniture that’s comfortable and stylish, and designed for use outside.


Get a Great View


Sunrock Balconies Make the most of your garden during lockdown


Making the most of the view that you have is another great way to make full use of your garden. Using infinity glass for your balcony can help it look bigger and give you a better view. Having infinity glass balustrades installed by Sunrock Balconies will give you a completely frameless perimeter that enhances your outdoor space. You can also make changes to your garden to improve your view, such as trimming trees that might be blocking what you can see. You might not be able to change anything outside of your property line, but there are things that you can change.


Connect Indoors and Outdoors


Another way to make the most of your garden is to blur the lines between indoors and outdoors. You can connect the two spaces so that they flow more seamlessly into each other. Now might not be the time for any major renovations, but you can still make your existing space flow more. Use a similar decor style both inside and outside, open up your doors, and be creative outdoors to create more of an indoor look.

When you make full use of your garden during lockdown, you can keep yourself occupied and have a great space to relax. If you are looking to expand your outdoor living space, then contact Sunrock Balconies for an on-line quote or to browse our fabulous products, please visit the website here




Sunrock Balconies were delighted to complete a project on behalf of L & M Healthcare Hulton House in Preston.

L & M Healthcare, a specialist provider of purpose-built nursing homes, offers personalised general nursing and dementia care. They operate a network of nursing homes throughout the Northwest and work closely with their sister organisation, Dynamic Building Solutions, for the design and build.

In Britain, we’re lucky to be spoiled with over 19,000 miles of beautiful scenic coastline. Coastal properties are some of the most sought after in the country and an attractive sea view can add up to 50% to the value of a property.

A well-designed balcony or deck can be the perfect place from which to enjoy those beautiful views and breath the sea air.

But harsh coastal environments can cause you major headaches when it comes to maintaining your property. Salty air, wind, fog and humidity can cause corrosion and damage to your home and your balconies and balustrades will bear the brunt of this.

Glass and infinity glass balustrades are the ideal material for coastal properties for a number of reasons both practical and style based.


Enjoy Uninterrupted Views


glass railings parapet walls


One of the pure joys of owning a coastal property is those fantastic sea views. Why would you then interrupt those with wooden or metal balustrades?

Infinity glass balustrades allow you to enjoy those amazing sea views without interruption creating a seamless extension of your indoor and outdoor living spaces.

You won’t have to worry about blocking out those glorious sunrises and sunsets either as the glass will let the light through them and into your home.


Create A Feeling Of Space


Glass has been used by designers for hundreds of years to create a feeling of more space within a home, by having this transparent balustrade, you not only get a great view, but you create a seamless transition between your home, your outside space and the landscape beyond.


Glass Is The Most Versatile Of Materials


Every home is unique and you put your style on it with every choice. Whether your home is modern or more traditional in style, glass is a great choice.

Coastal properties often feature large windows to take advantage of the views. Glass will complement the existing features and can be used both inside and out on features such as staircases, balconies, pools fencing and elevated walkways.

You can choose glass in a variety of shades, tints and etchings and from a number of fixing, styles and handrails.


It’s Built To Withstand The Elements


The British weather is nothing if not erratic. Unlike most other materials, glass won’t rot in the damp, salty conditions of the coast. It’s also strong enough to deal with the high winds.

This robustness against the elements makes it a great choice when it comes to safety.  Like iron, tempered glass is very strong but won’t be compromised by corrosion.


If you’d like to know more about our glass balustrades or would like to talk through a project for your coastal property, Sunrock Balconies has a dedicated team of experts who can help and advise you on all aspects of your project. Our aim is to help add function, style, and appeal to your home so get in touch today.



When did you last check your balustrades – are they still safe?


Whilst adding style and sophistication to your outside or inside space, a balustrade also acts as a safety barrier.

Whether it’s made from glass, wood or metal the balustrade is positioned on the edge of a higher area where there is a drop, so it prevents falls and subsequent injury.


Wherever they are situated, staircase or balcony balustrades are popular. However, it can’t always be assumed that once installed they will continue to be safe and do the job they are intended for. Balustrades work by resisting the force and pressure of someone falling against it. It absorbs the impact so it shouldn’t budge but transfer the force through the entire balustrading. If any part of it moves, is indicates a weak point which will need to be repaired or replaced immediately.

What to Check

It is essential there is absolutely no movement on the balustrade or any of its component parts. Check for movement in the following way:

  • Whether you have glass or wooden balusters you must check to see if they are loose or move. They are designed to give strength and structure of the whole system as well as the physical barrier to stop people falling through it.
  • Check each post between the balustrades to ensure they are completely intact. Any missing fixings or screws need to be replaced urgently.
  • Handrails should not move when held.

It is important to check the materials used for any damage too:

  • Wooden balustrades tend to be made from Hardwood which is dense and strong and therefore hardy. However, it is susceptible to pests like woodworm. It can also attract algae and be affected by heavy weathering. Any damage to the balustrade will compromise its strength
  • Glass balustrades are usually made with toughened glass, so they are incredibly strong. This type of glass will chip not shatter. However, if it is severely damaged it could crack out from the centre of the impact. If there is any damage the strength of it will be compromised.
  • Stainless steel is rust-proof and aluminium also offers resistance to damp and rain. However, check the joints for any damage or movement and repair if any is found.
  • Check to see if there are any changes to components. Any clamps, brackets, welding, screws and fixings should be checked for damage, wear and tear and definitely no movement. If there is, replace them.

Does your Balustrade System meet Current Regulations?

A balustrade system could have been in place for a long time. Though they will have met the building regulations at the that time, they probably won’t meet current building regulations.

How Often Should I Check Balustrades?

External balustrades should be checked for damage after heavy storms or sustained bad weather. For interior balustrades, check on a frequent basis, especially if the balustrade is continually used. All balustrades should be checked for movement after an extended period of inactivity or where it has received impact or actually broke a person’s fall.

Whether you’re looking to replace your balustrades due to damage or you just fancy a change, Sunrock Balconies have the solution for you.



Sunrock’s Infinity Glass balustrades are not only the necessary safety barrier, but they are the ultimate design feature for breaking down visual barriers between your indoor and outside living areas. Beautifully engineered, ultra-modern and completely frameless, they deliver a wonderful feeling of space, while at the same time being compliant with regulations and extremely durable.

It will soon be that wonderful time of year when we like to spend time relaxing or entertaining outside. But have you got the perfect deck on which to put your recliner or dining table and chairs?


Here at Sunrock, we completely understand if you’re put off by the high maintenance of traditional hard or softwood decking.

EcoDek Advanced Technology (AT)

Having been developed specifically for decking boards, they have the appearance of natural hardwood timber but offer an alternative option where ribbed or grooved boards are required.

EcoDek Heavy Duty (HD)

The attributes of this board make it highly suitable for commercial decking projects due to the ease of alignment and even dimensions. As with the other boards, the HD option is coloured through the manufacturing process so colour is maintained even after weathering plus even after being subjected to low temperatures it will not flake.

Juliet balcony systems offer enhanced aesthetics, make installation easy, require almost no maintenance, give the sense of security and, of course, are great value for money.

A Juliet balcony is a very narrow balcony or railing which sits just outside a window or pair of French doors on the upper storey of a building. Available in a variety of sizes, colours and styles, glass and/or stainless steel, the possibilities are endless with a Juliet Balcony, no matter the properties period.

Juliet balconies are becoming an increasingly common feature of many UK properties, both old and new. One of the primary reasons for this is that they can typically be installed without the need for planning permission. In many cases this can remove the need for an architect to be involved, reducing costs. In addition, the balconies can usually be bolted to an existing wall, making them quick, cheap and easy to install.

“Elegant Solutions To
Building Control Regulations”

Whilst a Juliet balcony does not expand the floor space of a property, it can help to change how you use an existing space. By replacing windows with much larger French doors, the room is filled with light, often making it feel larger and more pleasant.

Here at Sunrock Balconies, we offer a wide range of stunning Juliet Balconies that are designed to be fixed across an opening (e.g. patio doors, french windows, bi-fold doors etc). Take a look at some examples below:

Infinity Glass Juliet Balcony

We design our Infinity Glass Juliet Balconies to deliver unbroken views from your patio doors, French windows and bi-fold doors. 

When you open your doors you can let the light flood in with the security of knowing you and your family are completely safe.

A Sunrock Infinity Glass Juliet balcony will add a stunning design feature to your property and delivers an elegant solution to fully comply with UK Building Regulations.

The Hanley Glass & Stainless Steel Juliet Balcony


This design encases toughened glass between beautifully finished stainless steel top and bottom rails with matching fixings. The Hanley is usually fixed either side of the door opening but in some cases, it can be fixed straight to the window frame.

Striking Design Feature – The Hanley Juliet balcony will add a striking design feature to your property and delivers an innovative solution to comply with UK Building Regulations.



The Barbican Juliet Balcony

Bespoke Glass and Stainless Steel Juliet Balcony North Wales


A Barbican Juliet balcony is custom designed for the exact requirements of your door opening. The Barbican Juliet features stylish stainless steel uprights with matching stainless steel engineered fixings throughout and can be installed with or without a handrail.
