Balco climate wall
Save money on a new renovation that will last for 15 years.
Or make a good investment that lasts a lifetime.
– the sustainable alternative
There is an alternative to a traditional short-term renovation when the façades, windows and balconies are in poor condition. Balco calls the alternative Balco "climate wall". It is a cost-effective and long-term sustainable solution that involves an integrated glazed enclosure, mounted at the front of a balcony’s concrete base. The glazed enclosure protects the concrete base and in this way extends the balcony's lifespan by up to 50 years.*
The glazed balcony also functions as a climate-proofing shell for the property, resulting in lower energy costs, less need for maintenance and reduced noise from the surroundings. By covering the entire facade with Balco's glazed balcony system a climate wall is created that, independent studies show, gives an energy saving of almost 20 per cent. The balcony's windows feature a wall of air that acts as insulation. This structure means that air is warmed up before entering the apartment. The result is fewer draughts and a higher temperature indoors. The climate wall also eliminates the need for renovating the balconies as well as the building’s façades, windows and doors.
Your lifetime investment
By replacing your balcony altogether, rather than restoring it to its original condition, you can also benefit from a bigger space. This will inevitably increase the comfort and use of the balcony, as well as the overall value of the home, making it a worthwhile long-term investment.
* The results are obtained from a study by Ramböll, Scandinavia’s leading construction consultants (The report “Balco, technical studies of balcony glazing – The impact of carbonation and reinforcement corrosion”). According to the consultants at Ramböll there are a number of good reasons to invest in glazed balconies from Balco as an alternative to traditional balcony and concrete renovation.
