We deal with strict rules and requirements every day
Over the years, this has resulted in a number of exclusive patents and solutions that you will only find on our balconies. A fundamental part of our work is constantly testing materials and designs. This allows us to ensure the quality of every individual detail. We also keep up to date with all the requirements and regulations applicable in every country where we operate.
Solid basis for decisions
Working with an architect, consultant engineer or in direct dialogue with our clients, we first agree on the design of the balconies, along with the colours and materials to be used. This generally results in a photo montage showing how the proposed balcony solution could look on the existing building. It is important to be able to see what the finished result might look like right from the start!
Everything has to be right
A great deal of information has to be collated before the final construction work can begin. For instance, we make detailed calculations, with fixings and other technical details adapted to the various load requirements which may exist. These can vary a great deal depending on where the balcony is to be located, geographically as well as on the actual façade. Although the balconies may look identical, each balcony design is in fact unique.
A drawing for each section and step
Once all the information has been processed, it is time to start the drawings. The complete balcony, along with each individual detail, is drawn in two and three dimensions. With the drawings approved, production preparations start and detailed instructions are compiled for the final installation.
All production takes place at our modern and efficient Swedish headquarters in Växjö, where we carry out all the welding, finishing of aluminium profiles, powder coating and assembly. To ensure our high quality and reliable deliveries, we also invest heavily in machinery and expertise and our production process is certified in line with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 3834-2. This means that high quality is maintained throughout production and that we also show great consideration for the environment.
Our work on the building is likely to have already started before the main material delivery. For refurbishments all the old balconies and balustrade will probably have been removed and the façade may also have been renovated. Of course, you and the residents, receive information on when the work on the building will be carried out. For refurbishments or new builds there will be in-depth meetings to go through all the details and schedules. Final installation of the balconies is carried out by approved contractors who work under an installation man-ager. After the balconies have been installed, it is time for the final inspection. Once that is done and everything has been approved, the construction process is completed.
For us there is another dimension
