Balcony Drainage in Multi-Residential Design

Balcony Drainage in Multi-Residential Design


Balcony design, and in particular drainage systems, are a critical design consideration for multi-residential developments. Providing sufficient drainage is essential for ensuring the safety and structural integrity of both the indoor and outdoor areas of an apartment. Threshold drainage is an ideal solution for protection against water from the outside while still providing a continuous accessible path between the inside and outside.


Linear threshold drains create a disguised water barrier between the balcony and the inside of the apartment. This flat threshold removes ‘trip-and-slip’ hazards such as stepdowns and high gradient falls that exist with traditional doorways with rolling, sliding and bi-fold doors, while still achieving the water protection of the door system.
