Hi-Con balconies are solutions made in CRC i2®. The balconies are bespoke solutions, cast in very large formats and with a free shapeability that are securely and easily mounted on the facade. Besides the obvious functional value of the balconies, they pay an essential role in creating the expression and character of the building. Our material possesses a number of properties that provide the architect with a freedom to design and shape the balconies in accordance to his or her dream and vision for a specific building project. This freedom is only provided because of the extreme strength and durability of the material. Furthermore, CRC i2® makes it possible to design bespoke balconies while still taking the demands of the construction into account. The construction and condition of the building is very important in both renovation projects and new builds. Whether the balconies are meant to be installed on an existing or a new building the construction is crucial to how the balconies are installed and e.g. how large we can make the balconies. Therefore, we always recommend our collaborators to involve us early in the process in order to provide the best possible solution.
The architectural dream of slender, minimalistic and cantilevered balconies are achievable with CRC i2®. Through out the years, Hi-Con has supplied both new builds and renovation projects with thousands of balcony slabs in CRC i2®.
The minimalistic and extremely slender balcony slab can be cast with a thickness of only 50 mm and weighs around 50% less than a comparable balcony in conventional concrete. Often buildings are able to carry very large balconies of this type, which increases the value of the apartments and the applicability for the residents.

The design options are many with balconies with one or more parapets. The parapets can be designed in verious heights and furthermore function as a privacy screen.
You can design the parapets as a part of the load bearing structure, which makes it possible to use hidden connections and a solution with parapet balconies is a great option for both renovation projects and new builds.

Box balconies or box elements from Hi-Con can be installed by using different mounting principles. This type of balcony pays a significant part in the architectural expression and character of the building.
Besides the easthetical value of the box balcony, this type of balcony contributes with some functional values. The box balcony is both covered and closed and thereby provides the residents with a privat outdoor area they can use in all kinds of weather.

High performance concrete can - as any other kind of concrete - be shaped into any aesthetic form and expression. Many possible surfaces can be created. The standard colors are grey and light, but concrete can also be colored and stenciled in order to create a certain expression. Finally, stones or other additives can create a rougher surface. We can help you find the surface, you are looking for.
