A balcony is a platform that projects from an upper storey of a building, creating an enclosed outdoor area. Balconies are perfect for creating additional floorspace and for increasing the functionality of the building, and can be found in houses, apartment blocks, hotels and more.
Canal Architectural are experts in the design and fabrication of all types of balconies. This includes working from the initial new-build design stage, or surveying an existing structure to assess its suitability for balcony installation, and recommending the best design option.
We are experienced as metal balcony manufacturers. We manufacture all of our metalwork here in the UK at our Nottingham site to ensure high quality that suits your bespoke requirements.
Popular Balcony Styles
There are many different types of balcony, ranging from traditional, ornate constructions to minimalist, modern designs.
Depending on the chosen style, a balcony may be supported by columns, brackets or hidden structural metalwork. This gives a range of options for construction, as not all types of balconies are suitable for all buildings.
We are able to design, manufacture and install bespoke balconies in all of the popular styles, including cantilever balconies, Juliet balconies and hung balconies. We can also construct stylish terrace balustrades to transform a flat rooftop into a usable outdoor space, we are experienced in creating walk on balconies.
Bespoke Balcony Design
Canal can fabricate bespoke balconies from a variety of materials, and will recommend the best materials to use based on your chosen design and structural requirements. We commonly work with mild steel, stainless steel and timber, which can be treated or coated to protect their surface in all weather conditions. We are one of the most experienced metal balcony manufactures in the United Kingdom.
A balcony will be enclosed by a balustrade for safety, which allows further options to present a functional, aesthetically pleasing design. While we are able to create bespoke metal balustrades, glass is a very popular choice, as it provides uninterrupted views from the balcony and gives a modern, stylish feel.
