Cantilevered balconies are the most common balcony design found on a property.
The method of construction allows the balcony to protrude from the face of the building without any visible supports, giving a clean, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Cantilevered balconies require a great deal of structural accuracy as they will impose larger point loads on a building. Canal is able to survey an existing building or work with a new build design to ensure that the bespoke balcony is structurally sound and will not damage the building in the long term.
Cantilevered Balcony Calculations and Structure
As they are only supported at one end, cantilevered balconies will always have a small amount of movement or ‘bounce’ and so are usually made to a maximum depth of 1800mm to minimise this. We make sure that there is an appropriate structure in place within our design to accommodate movement.
Protruding balconies can be made from a variety of different materials, with steel, concrete and timber being some of the most popular. As all of our balconies are bespoke and made to measure, we can accommodate your chosen features into your balcony, making use of glass, steel and bespoke metalwork for a unique design.
We design, manufacture and install our cantilevered balconies to comply with all necessary building safety regulations.

At Canal we have experience in manufacturing bespoke Cantilevered Balconies at Canal Engineering headquarters in Nottingham. View our projects below to gain some insight to how a Cantilevered Balcony can be used to add a unique look to residential properties. This style of balcony is often paired with bespoke glass balustrades allowing for natural light to still flow through the balcony and into the property. Feel free to contact our experienced team if you have any questions.
