Also known as Juliette balconies, window guards, balcony rails or balcony railings, Juliet balconies are a popular enhancement for the exterior of properties whilst fulfilling the practical requirements of building regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions:

A Juliet safely allows upper floor living spaces to benefit from French doors, Bifold doors or Full-length open windows, allowing fresh air into the room and enhancing the general feeling of space and openness. A Juliet balcony is essentially a railing against inward-swinging French doors, attached to the exterior of a building.

Juliet’s are deigned to let in air and light, transforming full length windows or French doors (usually of upper floors) into balconies. Often referred to as a balconette, Juliet’s can be defined as “false balconies” (or railings) at the outer plane of a window-opening, reaching to the floor. When the window/doors are open, the railings offer up the appearance of a balcony – hence the name.

The name Juliet balcony derives from an extremely famous scene in Romeo & Juliet, written by William Shakespeare. In the scene, Juliet is courted by Romeo while she is on her balcony, although the play only ever referred to it as a window, not a balcony.

Some local authorities have special rules for conservation areas, but as a general rule of thumb, no, you do no require planning permission for a Juliet balcony.

As they can affect sight lines and neighbours’ privacy, ‘Walk-on balconies’ i.e. those with a platform where you can step out the building, generally do require planning permission.

Your local authority Planning or Building Control team will be able to give precise guidance, but if you have any follow-up questions about planning permission, feel free to email us directly using: [email protected].

It is usually a simple case of ‘packing’ behind the fixing plate with a solid material to suit an uneven surface. A builder or competent installer should be able to advise but otherwise contact Forjj for advice.

You must make sure you are getting a solid fix. See our advice about cladding (below). Usually there is nothing to worry about but, depending on the render, it might be necessary to remove the render in the location of the fixings to access the solid fixing surface behind.

It may be possible to fix through the cladding, but when tightening the fixings you may end up nipping, squashing, or even breaking your cladding material. Sometimes, a clever spacer or stand-off design will solve your problem. Contact us if you are still unsure.

Inspect the walls / surfaces to a distance of 1ft (30 cm) around your window aperture. Look out for any protruding features on or around the opening that your balcony is going to fix to such as over-size window sills, drain pipes, cables or stonework that might clash with the balcony frame.

Be aware too if you have less than 1ft (30 cm) of space around the balcony area which might cause problems when fitting.

Don’t panic if you see any such issues as we can (and have) worked around all sorts of unusual obstacles in the past. Just get in touch (and ideally arrange to send us a photograph) if you would like any advice. We might need to quote you for a bespoke solution but don’t hesitate; it costs less than you think!
