Description

A German company has developed a sophisticated aluminium balcony construction system. Challenges from modern architecture, construction and material know-how were taken into consideration during the development. As aluminium is chosen as a material, there is no danger of rusting through. The extruded profiles are protected from optical corrosion by an anodized coating. The system is characterized by a flexible and modular set-up. For faster installation, some parts, such as, balustrades or levels can be pre-mounted. But wherever convenient, e.g. due to little available space in city centres, the system can be delivered completely unmounted. Innovative joining elements render possible to change or adapt the installation at the construction site. There is a high market potential for this type of system as the addition of a balcony significantly increases the attractiveness of an appartment. As the German company is very small, they do not have the resources to fully exploit the potential of the balcony system. They are thus searching for cooperation partners for manufacturing and distribution agreements. The company is very much open to discuss the options and depth of collaboration. The manufacturing offer could include tools and production fixtures, technical drawings, relevant data, technical support and IPR. The partners could, e.g. be companies active in window production or extruded profile production. The manufacturing partner does not have to have any welding certificates as this system has no welding requirements at all. If the partner company is located geographically close to Germany, a distribution services agreement could be concluded where manufacturing of systems is carried out in Germany.

Advantages and innovations

Compared to other balcony systems, the use of aluminium is of advantage as rust problems are avoided. Furthermore no welding is necessary to set up the system. Further advantages: • Easy to set-up • Modular set-up makes it possible to extend the system • No maintenance requirements
