Balco makes homes more relaxing!

Many of us are exposed to unwanted noise all day long. On our way to work, at work, and even at home. Today it’s difficult to ever escape noise. Traffic is the most common source of unwanted sound and it affects us more than we think. Exposure to noise that tends to disrupt the natural rhythm of life can affect our health enormously. These effects can include: general health issues, sleeping disorders, cognitive effects, hearing impairment, increased blood pressure and also cardiovascular issues. A way to reduce the risk and protect yourself and your family from unwanted noise could be to install an integrated glazing solution from Balco, since a glazed balcony form Balco actually reduce noise by up to 20dB.

Integrated glazing with framed panes cuts noise levels considerably. The ear perceives a drop of 10 dB as a halving of the noise level. Ramböll’s study and previous measurements show that an integrated glazing solution from Balco cuts noise by up to 20dB. This 20dB reduction is when you’re out on your Balco balcony. The noise reduction inside your apartment varies from apartment to apartment. It depends on many factors such as: When the apartment was built, how it’s built, what the façade is made of and the quality of the windows. What we can ensure is that residents with an integrating glazing form Balco benefit from a brighter, lighter living space with good acoustic protection and a more relaxing environment.

Here’s three Balco examples

Clyde Terrace, Forest Hill in London, United Kingdom

Positioned alongside a railway in London, Noise pollution was a fact. A need to reduce noise pollution from the nearby trains was a major consideration for this new build project and Balco’s balconies were a good solution. By adding glazed balconies to Clyde Terrace, Balco was able to give residents an extra outdoor space that could be used all year round and with less impact from outside noise.

 

Mitros Housing Association, Wolfstraat in Utrecht, The Netherlands

Balco changed the old rotten wooden enclosures to new aluminum system. This has not only changed the whole appearance of the house it’s also minimizes noise pollution from nearby main road and railway.

Krohnsminde in Bergen, Norway

The façade on the four tower blocks in Krohnsminde, along the southern main entry road to Bergen, was in great need of renovation. The busy entry road also made the need for noise reducing glazing necessary. Together with the architect, Pål Jørgensen, Balco developed an attractive and functional solution. The result exceeded all expectations. Apart from an oasis where the 180 householders could relax protected from traffic noise, wind and weather, their balconies were as much as 3 to 4 times larger than before. The stately Krohnsminde has become an eye-catcher and a dignified entry to the city.

Balco continues to expand its capacity!

During the last couple of years Balco have continued to expand across Europe. Not only with sold balcony projects but also with manufacturing plants. Balco have expanded the production capacity from one manufacturing facility to four.

Balco have one factory at Balco HQ in Växjö, Sweden. Here produces all balcony types but mainly glazed balcony systems, delivered to the northern part of Europe. In 2014, Balco opened one production facility in Przytocna, Poland. Then in 2015 Balco acquired the Danish company Kontech, and together became Balco Kontech. Balco Kontech is located in Copenhagen and produce open balconies for city centers. And last month, the 19th of October Balco opened the fourth production facility in Łowyń, Poland. Here both glazed and open balcony systems are produced, mainly delivered to the south parts of Europe.

With this capacity Balco can ensure the outstanding quality of the products and that every sold project is supported the way customers would expect.
