Fawcetts Yard taps into rich seam of Neaco style

Neaco’s glass balustrade and aluminium grille systems

Neaco’s glass balustrade and aluminium grille systems are once again proving their value in contemporary design schemes following a specification at Fawcetts Yard, a new development of luxury homes in Harrogate.

Designed by Bramhall Blenkharn and built by HACS Construction, the select development comprises four stylish three-storey homes alongside a workshop/studio. The balconies on the upper floor of each home feature Neaco’s Techdek aluminium grille decking as well as their Elan semi-structural balustrade system with aluminium stanchions and handrails in a grey powder coated finish. The result is an attractively minimalist aesthetic in keeping with the development’s modern design and finish which incorporates distinctive Terracotta cladding.

Ric Blenkharn of Bramhall Blenkharn said: “I’m more than happy with the service and products supplied by Neaco – their combination of decking and balustrade has been excellent choice for this development. I’m familiar with the products, having used them on a number of other projects as well as my own home.”

Most balustrade designs secure glass infill panels in place by attaching them to the stanchions with a clip, but Elan’s glass panels are secured by a top rail above and a subtle floor channel below. The result is a sleek appearance, an economical use of materials and an easy-to-install solution. Designed for non-raked installations, Elan is often specified as a balcony solution complete with Techdek aluminium grille flooring.

Elan offers all the classic characteristics that define Neaco’s Spectrum balustrade and balcony range. To complement its aesthetics virtues, the system offers many practical qualities, including maintenance-free durability, exceptional design versatility and fast, low-energy installation with no welding or hot works required. The powder coating applied to Elan handrails provides a non-chip, warm-to-touch finish and the glass is toughened with tinting options available.

As well as balustrade, balconies and metal grating systems, Neaco also manufactures a wide range of bathroom mobility aids including true level access showers, shower seats, grab rails, drop-down rails and half-height shower doors. Further information is available at www.neaco.co.uk

Neaco balustrade specified for ‘gold standard’ care home

Neaco have supplied a contemporary glass balcony railing and balustrade specification for a new 60-bed residential care home in Barrow.

The £7m Parkview Gardens care home has replaced four older Cumbria Care homes as part of a wider modernisation programme of care for older people in the Barrow area. Cumbria County Councillor Beth Furneaux described the home as “the gold standard for dementia care and central to how we will deliver services in Barrow in the future.”

Architects Alston Murphy Associates specified Neaco’s powder coated aluminium balustrade with glass infill panel. In contrast to many care homes, the building was designed to provide outdoor space on every floor, including first floor terraces featuring Neaco’s balustrade and glass balcony railing was installed to an extended height to provide additional safety. The terraces also include Neaco’s Techdek metal grating as terrace decking.

Iain Murphy of Alston Murphy said: “We have used Neaco a number of past projects, including care homes at Brook House in Denton and Melton House in Gosforth which were designed on behalf of the Mathotra Healthcare Group. Neaco’s products are high in quality and we like the simplicity of their design. Neaco’s capabilities provide a one-stop shop for design consultation, measuring, manufacturing and fitting, so working with them removes a lot of the agony that can occur on some projects. They submitted an excellent glass balcony railing and balustrade solution for Parkview Gardens and we’re very pleased with the result.”

Neaco’s Spectrum balcony railing and balustrade systems are based on a versatile modular construction – adaptable to virtually any design permutation – and available stainless steel or aluminium in a wide range of power coated finishes, including wood-effect. Available in six different profiles, Techdek metal grating is also suitable for use as sunscreens, modesty screens, mezzanine floors, stair treads, balustrade infills, staging and suspended ceilings. Neaco also manufactures a wide range of mobility aids for the bathroom, including true level access showers, half height shower doors, grab rails, shower seats and drop-down support arms.

Neaco supplies blend of styles for prestigious development

Neaco railed Juliet balcony design

Neaco supplied a bespoke specification combining a railed Juliet balcony design with its contemporary glass balustrade to meet the aesthetic requirements of a prestigious development of luxury apartments in Sevenoaks, Kent.

Designed by BHD Architects, the project formed part of an extensive redevelopment of a site at the junction with London Road and Pembroke Road in Sevenoaks and included the construction of a new apartment complex comprising 22 properties with parking at basement level. The scheme was carefully designed to fit into the established pattern of development of the surrounding area, in terms of scale and appearance. The building incorporates a range of traditional elements, including Neaco’s railed balconies, to reflect the character of the town centre whilst incorporating contemporary features promoting sustainable techniques such as solar panels, a green roof and living wall and rainwater harvesting. In addition to its railed balconies Neaco supplied balustrade with glass infill panels for top floor terraces.

Neaco’s National Sales Manager, Peter Melia, said: “Our glass balustrade and balcony solutions have attracted an exceptional level of demand in the residential market across a broad range of developments and The Pembroke is yet another example, but it’s also a reminder that we are able to offer a more traditional aesthetic with our railed balcony options also being utilised. We offer standard railed balcony designs but The Pembroke required a bespoke railed solution which demonstrates the design versatility of our technical team.”

Neaco’s range of handrails, balustrade and balconies offers a host of design options. The company’s product range also includes structural glass, adaptive bathing facilities and aluminium grilles for flooring, screening and shading applications. All products are backed by a class-leading Lifetime Guarantee.
