Drainage of a balcony through a gutter must be carried out properly. Otherwise, longer-lasting water can cause damage and become a security risk. For larger balconies, it is recommended to install a rain gutter for the drainage of the water.
Prevent moisture from standing
Flaking tiles, uneven floors or dirt tracks often show signs of damage due to a lack of balcony drainage. These can become a security risk in the long run.
Protection against moisture and dirt
To avoid this, the balcony must be protected against prolonged moisture. For large balconies, a gutter is required, while gutters are mounted to the balcony profiles.
Plug-in and Duplex channels
Balcony gutters are a good solution for draining balconies. They consist of gutter rail and gutter. These are attached as required, while the gutter is simply hung in the gutter rail. The simple attachment saves time and costs.
