Balconies and balustrades from Sapphire, including offsite solutions, were used in a new residential and commercial development in south west London.
Macaulay Walk in Macaulay Road, Clapham Old Town is a sensitive blend of historic converted buildings and contemporary additions. The company’s package for the project includes 66 pre-glazed bolt-on balconies and 100 linear metres of glass balustrading for external walkways, all of which were manufactured offsite and delivered as pre-assembled units ready for fast track installation on site.
Steel-frame bolt-on balconies for apartments at Macaulay Walk were supplied to site as complete units with hardwood sub-deck and balustrades based on Sapphire’s Crystal frameless, structural glass system.
Sapphire’s Crystal system is combined with a powder-coated aluminium capping to provide an attractive and durable solution for 300 linear metres of terrace balustrading at Macaulay Walk. A point-fixed bracket fixing was specially designed by Sapphire to enable balustrading to be installed before terrace decks were waterproofed. Using this bespoke fixing solution gave teh company greater flexibility in dealing with the different floor build-ups and assisted in better project planning and sequencing.
