On Site

We support on-site installation teams  initially with training, then supply them the unique specialist equipment they need for their specific project.

Sapphire has developed many unique pieces of equipment to make installing balconies on site faster, more efficient and, most importantly, safer for installation teams.

Innovations include the Counter Balance Lifter. In essence, the CBL offsets the crane hook by using weights to balance the balcony, opening the door to a wide range of install sequences.

We also offer an internal guarding system, behind which installers can safely guide in balconies. In addition, an SYAM safety harness is available for leading edge work on corner balconies or walkways, for example.

By providing the equipment needed, on-site installers at Pomona Wharf managed to install 34 balconies in just over six hours. See for yourself and understand how this on-site support combined with our unique rapid install system, could really make a difference to your balcony project.

See Berkeley Homes director Jason Margetts speaking of his experiences of Sapphire’s supply and support on their Royal Arsenal, Thames riverside development in Woolwich, London. Click here to hear more from Tim Hawkins, the project director at Berkeley Homes on his experience working with us.
