A glazed balcony or Wintergarden, Sunspace, Balcony Enclosure, is a single glazed aluminium system that provides weather protection to an external balcony area.
Along with basic weather protection, these enclosures can provide energy saving capabilities by acting as an additional thermal barrier to the main building façade.
In simple terms, it works by introducing a glazed screen in front of the main building and what you end up with is an air space between the outside climate
and the building fabric, acting like a giant double glazed unit to the outside of the building.
This barrier not only acts as a barrier to the weather but also acts as barrier to sound and becomes a proper balcony area, with functioning windows, that is possible to use all year round along with many other key additional benefits for the people living inside and for the people managing the outside.
