Balconies Made Rigid, Ready & Right

With the absence of a balcony specific standard, yet a host of different organizations stipulating a range of requirements, balcony design has often been a minefield. We have extensively explored the thousands of pages of regulations, and add our findings from expansive testing to bring to you a clear understandable presentation in which we explore the requirements that need to be met as well as innovative solutions.

Our Lunch & Learn presentation includes videos of real life processes, 2D and 3D technical diagrams, tables and extensive professional photos in order to allow attendees to easily digest the wealth of balcony design expertise and understand how they can be applied on their relevant projects. 

We aim to explore, educate and inspire balcony design so that we can make a difference to all attendees.

Coach

More than 25 years’ experience of working with architects and builders has given us deep insight into what the market wants – and what helps specifiers get the results they are looking for. Our unique online tool, COACH, was born out of a desire to make compliant balcony design as simple as possible across the world.

COACH is the latest enhancement to CABS our Computer Aided Balcony Specifier, and the complete new suite was launched in December 2020. 

COACH in the future will enable auto pricing for balcony project, BIM outputs, streamline the design process including structural calculations and outputting designs for manufacturing machine processes. This vision for COACH also includes quality control processes throughout the platform, ensuring accurate balcony design and manufacture.
