More developers are using balconies at the centre of projects according to Rehau which has just launched Skyforce into its window portfolio.

Lockdown, says the firm, has placed further emphasis on maximising space and daylight in the minds of architects - and home owners.

Famous architect, Alison Brooks, publicly stated that housing should feature more balconies in the earlier stages of the pandemic this year. She claimed that everybody is paying more attention to the places where they can be outside without being on the street.


 “This year, balconies went from an often forgotten space to an integral part of modern living for millions of UK residents. While we were already developing the Skyforce Juliet balcony before lockdown, our rationale was further highlighted by people spending more time in their homes.”

"Many studies have shown the impact of daylight on health and wellbeing and our product development is always centred around improving the lives of the people who use and live with our products,” continues Rehau's Hand.

Inspired by Spanish and Italian designs, the balcony product is well-suited to luxury residential houses and apartments. Its design appears to be 'frameless' letting the maximum amount of daylight into a space. With less components than any other Juliet balcony on the market, it is also quicker and easier to install - so less time is spent on site.


Stand out

Designed with developers and specifiers in mind, Rehau aims to offer a competitive Juliet balcony to a market where differentiation is important. Hand continues: “The housing market is competitive, particularly when it comes to high-end developments due to older, more traditional properties boasting so many exclusive features. Skyforce's appearance will make the houses and apartments its installed in, really stand out from the crowd.”

All the visible parts of Skyforce can be customised to suit an individual window colour so it fits discreetly into the clean lines of modern facades.



Skyforce also complies with the current building regulations for protection from falling, collision and impact.
