Altaner – smartere og nemmere med BIM!

BIM OBJECT

Balco er Bim-kompatibel, hvilket betyder, at vi har udviklet et 3D-katalog med alle vores altanprodukter, der let kan tilpasses og bruges som grundlag for tegning af altanprojekter. Building Information Modeling (BIM) kan forbedre planlægning, design og konstruktion med bl.a. følgende fordele:

Øget rentabilitet

Forbedret visualisering

Mere præcis planlægning

Optimeret kommunikation

Øget produktivitet

 

Revit®

Balco’s altanprodukter kan downloades som en Revit-fil, og fungerer som en ”træk og slip-funktion” til dine tegninger. Hvis du bruger ArchiCAD, bedes du kontakte Balco for IFC-filer.

Højkvalitets beton giver Balco højeste karakter

I 2018 har Balco’s altanbunde fået den højeste karakter af den svenske forening ”Byggvarubedömningen”. Grunden er, at Balco hele tiden stræber mod nye mål og den højeste kvalitet. Vores stabile produktionsproces er nøjagtigt kontrolleret og gennemtænkt. Miljøet er også en meget vigtig del af vores arbejde, ligesom vores ISO certificeringer (ISO 9001 og ISO 14001) er en yderst vigtig faktor for os.

Altanbundene støbes i vores egen produktion i Växjö, Sverige. Dette betyder, at vi kan kontrollere og sikre betonpladernes kvalitet på en helt anden måde, end hvis de blev støbt ude på byggepladserne. Udover de interne kontroller som udføres løbende, så har vi også eksterne tilsyn, som udfører uafhængige kontroller for at sikre, at vores produkter overholder vores høje standarder.

”Byggvarubedömningen” er en af disse uafhængige parter. Det er en økonomisk uafhængig forening,  som blandt andet arbejder med at sikre, at produkter i byggebranchen ikke indeholder farlige kemikalier. Desuden kontrollerer de også, at byggefirmaerne arbejder ud fra et socialt holdbart perspektiv i produktionen.

Balco signs order for conversion of balconies outside Stockholm

Balco has signed a cooperation agreement regarding the production and delivery of balconies to a tenant-owners association in Täby outside Stockholm. The order, which is for a turnkey project, involves new glazed balconies in accordance with the Balco method and is worth approximately SEK 100 million. Start of the project, which is not yet included in the Company’s order backlog, will take place once the customer has been granted planning permission.

Balco has entered into a cooperation agreement with a HSB tenant-owners association in Täby outside Stockholm regarding production and installation of new balconies. The order involves the conversion and renovation of existing balconies and is worth approximately SEK 100 million. The delivery includes dismantling, project planning, delivery of new fastening systems, balcony floors, roofs and the Balco Air glazing system with Clean-line, Ventech and the Twin windows system. The order value is not included in the order backlog which Balco is reporting in today’s report for the first quarter of 2018. The production phase will commence once planning permission is granted, and thus it is anticipated that the project will contribute to sales in 2019 and 2020. It is estimated that the project will take one year to complete from start of the project.

“The order from the tenant-owners association in Täby is testimony to the fact that we have quality products, great industry know-how and good delivery capacity which facilitates establishment with short lead times. We are continuing to create our own market and we perceive positive opportunities to continue our organic growth. That is the case both in the Nordic region, where we are the market leader, and also in the rest of northern Europe”, says Kenneth Lundahl, President and CEO of Balco, in a comment.

Balco makes homes more relaxing!

Many of us are exposed to unwanted noise all day long. On our way to work, at work, and even at home. Today it’s difficult to ever escape noise. Traffic is the most common source of unwanted sound and it affects us more than we think. Exposure to noise that tends to disrupt the natural rhythm of life can affect our health enormously. These effects can include: general health issues, sleeping disorders, cognitive effects, hearing impairment, increased blood pressure and also cardiovascular issues. A way to reduce the risk and protect yourself and your family from unwanted noise could be to install an integrated glazing solution from Balco, since a glazed balcony form Balco actually reduce noise by up to 20dB.

Integrated glazing with framed panes cuts noise levels considerably. The ear perceives a drop of 10 dB as a halving of the noise level. Ramböll’s study and previous measurements show that an integrated glazing solution from Balco cuts noise by up to 20dB. This 20dB reduction is when you’re out on your Balco balcony. The noise reduction inside your apartment varies from apartment to apartment. It depends on many factors such as: When the apartment was built, how it’s built, what the façade is made of and the quality of the windows. What we can ensure is that residents with an integrating glazing form Balco benefit from a brighter, lighter living space with good acoustic protection and a more relaxing environment.

Here’s three Balco examples

Clyde Terrace, Forest Hill in London, United Kingdom

Positioned alongside a railway in London, Noise pollution was a fact. A need to reduce noise pollution from the nearby trains was a major consideration for this new build project and Balco’s balconies were a good solution. By adding glazed balconies to Clyde Terrace, Balco was able to give residents an extra outdoor space that could be used all year round and with less impact from outside noise.

 

 

Mitros Housing Association, Wolfstraat in Utrecht, The Netherlands

Balco changed the old rotten wooden enclosures to new aluminum system. This has not only changed the whole appearance of the house it’s also minimizes noise pollution from nearby main road and railway.

Krohnsminde in Bergen, Norway

The façade on the four tower blocks in Krohnsminde, along the southern main entry road to Bergen, was in great need of renovation. The busy entry road also made the need for noise reducing glazing necessary. Together with the architect, Pål Jørgensen, Balco developed an attractive and functional solution. The result exceeded all expectations. Apart from an oasis where the 180 householders could relax protected from traffic noise, wind and weather, their balconies were as much as 3 to 4 times larger than before. The stately Krohnsminde has become an eye-catcher and a dignified entry to the city.
