Challenges at Lillie Square
We take a bespoke yet simple approach to each new challenge, incorporating unique detailing and sizing for each Glide-On™ balcony. The approach for Lillie Square was no different with uncommon detailing such as an ‘I’ beam look to fascias and tight balustrade deflection tolerances. The project was developed by EC Properties Limited and designed by John McAslan + Partners.
Our innovative balcony solutions allow for bespoke requirements. Working with the facade company, we offered training for the install teams and loaned bespoke install equipment to enable quick and simple installation of all the balconies. We were able to create bespoke fascias made from aluminium extrusion, to look like steel ‘I’ beams. Using heat strengthened 12+12mm laminated glass balustrades.
Step 2: We manufactured and stored Glide-On™ Cassette® balconies for Lillie Square at our Winchester production facility while balcony connections were completed on-site.
Step 3: Once the façade was complete, the bespoke balcony cassettes (the frame structure and glass balustrade) were delivered to site, preassembled and factory-finished.
Step 4: Using our innovative counter-balance technology, the balconies were lifted into position and simply glided onto the pre-installed brackets.
Sapphire’s offsite balcony system proved to be really quick and efficient to install.
