Enclosing balconies in a block of flats - why it's worth it

Opt for a balcony enclosure, especially if:

  • Your balcony faces south, west or south-west. The enclosure will protect you from the sun.
  • It is exposed to strong wind. The side walls weaken the effects of its actions.
  • You want to protect yourself from the gaze of outsiders.

You can furnish your enclosed balcony cosily and enjoy it for a large part of the year.

Balcony cladding in wood or aluminium?

Both solutions are great, each has its advantages. Building wooden blinds will give your balcony a warmer feel. Wood creates a cosy atmosphere, can have different types of coverings and is relatively inexpensive. It does, however, require maintenance from time to time to maintain its beauty. Aluminium balcony laths are a slightly more expensive solution, but in turn very durable and resistant to all external factors. They will be more suited to modern buildings and modernist styles. They can be installed horizontally and vertically. The mechanism for the movable boards in both cases will allow you to adjust the level of obscurity of the balcony.
