Open-Support | VE + or – soffit

This ultra-slim, open-support design is a quick install system available in two styles of structure – with or without a soffit.

The fully finished, certified modular balcony is supported by exposed architectural cantilevered beams.  The supports are secured to the building using a tailored anchor system specific to the build method. As the balcony rests on the support beams it is an economical option as super quick to install.

With soffit

NO soffit

We offer competitive pricing for client-specific railing designs, provided they adhere to building regulations. Please be aware that non-standard designs may incur additional costs. Additionally, our designs can be enhanced with solid or perforated divider panels.

Drainage System

Soffit
