Balconies give a good definition of any building structure. Traditionally, balconies were made up of wood which conceded for simple support or an intricately engraved design to enhance the balcony.
Decorative wooden ‘balconies of the highest quality’ which is also known as ‘balkonger av ypperste kvalitet’ were a distinctive feature of heritage buildings. Iron balconies were another common sight, though these were high maintenance fixtures.

Times have changed and with it, the materials being used for construction have undergone a radical change. Stainless steel balconies, steel fencing, aluminum frame windows, and shutters are now the preferred choice of the construction industry.
A balcony is put up for the safety and security of the users. Therefore the material used for a balcony must be strong and be able to put up with the abuse that comes with high traffic and footfalls in the area.
Combining toughened glass panels with stainless creates a safe balcony system. Whether it is an apartment block, hotel, hospital, school or a public building, stainless balconies are the modern approach to make your space safe and attractive.
Stainless steel balconies are almost maintenance-free. Stainless does not rust or corrode like cast iron. As such, the balcony will more likely last for the lifetime of the building structure. Painting is not necessary for stainless balconies. Due to their shiny appearance, stainless steel balconies blend well with the surroundings and lend a touch of elegance to the decor.
