Clearview glass balconies take on new film role


NEACO’s Clearview glass Juliet balconies are renowned for providing an unobstructed outlook, but an office conversion project at Stirling House in Northampton required the opposite effect with a bespoke specification incorporating an orange privacy film on the toughened glass panels.

The design by GSSArchitecture brings eye-catching colour to Clearview’s minimalist aesthetic, producing an attractive contemporary façade for the three-storey former offices which have been transformed into a new 14,000 sq ft annex to Abington Vale Primary School.

Ben Asbury of GSSArchitecture said:

“We chose NEACO’s Juliet balconies largely due to their elegant, clean and contemporary finish with a high level of transparency. The bespoke fixings required for our installation have worked very neatly and we are pleased with the results.”

NEACO’s national sales manager, Richard Richardson-Derry, said:

“Our Clearview Juliet balconies have become a very popular alternative to heavily railed Juliet balconies and some projects feature the addition of bespoke etching or film on our glass panels – at Stirling House this particular film still allows excellent sunlight penetration.”
