If you’re lucky enough to have a balcony attached to your property, finding ways to make the most of it is very worthwhile.
Stylish balcony drains & grates from Aquabocci are ideal for opening terraces up and creating contemporary looks. The flush-fitting systems maximise usable floor space, while enhancing aesthetics through a unique blend of form and colour. Designed to be slim, smooth, and seamlessly incorporated into architecture, these linear drains add a touch of refinement and flair.
Modular components allow for easy customisation, tailoring designs to the space. Once installed, the freedom to style the area with outdoor furniture made for lounging in the fresh air is all yours.
Where to install balcony floor drains
There are three main positions where balcony drains can be installed. The first is up against the front or side of the terrace walls as a first line of defence against heavy rainfall. The second is through the middle of the floor, with a v-shaped slope running towards the grate. The third position is attached to the door threshold, to drain water from the door track.
Aquabocci’s product range offers the option to install grates in one of the above positions, or combine all three for superior functionality and style. All models feature a low profile that enables the grates to sit level with flooring; a feature that unlocks full use of the available floor space. The Blade-T External is especially flexible, and includes height-adjustable spacers that allow the greate to match tile thickness for an extra smooth experience.
How to style balcony linear drains
While the functional aspects of drainage are always to be considered, Aquabocci’s products bring an element of fun and freshness to the table. Each model comes in lengths of either 1200mm or 2400mm, which can be cut to suit the dimensions of the area. Using these lengths, lines are crafted in a way that accentuates the shape of the area. With the addition of 90 degree corner pieces, a sharp, angled look is easily created; perfect for L-shaped corners or an art-deco inspired frame around the terrace perimeter.
The profile of each design is unique, leading to different visual effects. Models like the slimline S66 Low Profile evoke a sense of elegance and modernism, with the versatility to be paired with other styles, such as the R-47 Threshold. The Blade-T External’s thin footprint and simplicity lends itself towards ultra-minimalistic or classic looks, depending on the colour scheme. Wider designs like the A30 make a statement, either through colour or form. The creative potential is endless.
With four unique shades available across the collection, creating a design that compliments architecture and hardware is simple. GT Silver, Titanium anthracite, matte Black and light gold Champagne are the shades on offer; a palette that suits both modern and classic architecture. Made from marine-grade anodised alunminium, shades stay steadfast and vivid. No matter the weather, these luxurious models never rust or tea stain, thanks to clever engineering that combines high flow rates with a small footprint.
