Belgrave & Berkeley Juliet Balconies - Technical Details 

Both the Belgrave and Berkeley Juliet balcony ranges use a unique design of aluminium handrail and male & female extrusion connection system, which mean it is as strong as steel alternatives and conforms fully to BS6399, despite being just half the weight.

It has been tested by independent structural engineers to measure its safety and performance levels, and the results confirmed it meets the requirements for BS6399 Part 1 for both Category A domestic & residential and Category D retail areas. 

The tests also revealed that the standard Belgrave Juliet balcony has the following span capabilities in accordance with BS6399:

  • In a domestic setting: 3.100m governed by the top handrail
  • In a commercial setting: 2.450m governed by the top handrail

The most effective methods of fixing the Belgrave to the building facade have also been calculated. They are:

  • 100mm thick brickwork: Use 1 No. Hilti M8 Hilti has with HVU adhesive
  • 100mm thick concrete: Use 1 No. Hilti M4 Hub-1 fixings
  • 100mm thick timber stud: Use 2 No. 5.59mm Dia 100mm long wood screws
