Balkonbar

Frequently Asked questions

How can I use the Balkonbar?

You can use the balkonbar as a bar, table or windowsill on the railing of your balcony. Balkonbar is easy to assemble and attach and fits on pretty much every balcony railing. Even though the Balcony bar is pretty strong, please don’t sit on it or place very heavy objects on it. The elevated barrier on the Balkonbar will help avoid objects falling of, but please still be careful placing objects on the Balconbar because they can still fall off, especially with strong wind. Use the Balkonbar responsible and that way we can all avoid accidents.

What kind of balcony does Balkonbar work on?

The Balkonbar can be attached to virtually every balcony railing. There is a model for a square railing, a round railing and even for walls and glass railings. If you do have a funky balcony or strange sizes, just mail us at info@balkon.bar for questions or tips and we’ll be happy to help.

Standard railing

The Balkonbar is very suitable to attach to straight railings. By turning the butterfly nuts you clamp the Balkonbar deadlocked to your railing. The maximum dimension of the railing bar to which the Balkonbar can be attached are 16.5 cm wide and 13cm high.

Round railings

The attachment to round railings is a little different than square models. The attachment for round railings is flexible and can be attached to railings between 3.5cm and 8cm diameter (roughly 11cm and 25cm circumference). You can measure the circumference easily by rolling some paper or string around the railing and then measuring it.

Walls

A confirmation is also available for walls. In This construction The wall is clamped between 2 brackets as it were. The construction is suitable for walls with a width of 7 to 12.5 cm. The walls of the wall must be the same.

Glass reling

Lots of new apartments have a super-luxurious glass railing. We made some cool braces especially for glass walls using plastic clamps which hug the glass without damaging it.

Can I assemble the Balkonbar myself?

The Balkonbar is easy to assemble. Please make sure that you do ask help when attaching it to the railing to avoid dropping it.

How do I attach a single Balkonbar?

The Balkonbar is easy to attach to most balcony railings. The product packaging also contains detailed assembly and attachment instructions.

Before attaching the Balkonbar, make sure you measure the distance between the bars on your railing. This will define the distance between the braces. With square railings the construction is applied in
between the bars, with a round railing you will use the bars for attachment.

What kind of tools do I need?

The Balkonbar can easily be assembled and attached using an electric drill with a philips head. The tough ones can also use muscles and simply use an old fashioned Philips screw driver. Good for you!

How can I attach multiple Balkonbars to my balcony?

You can decide to hang one Balkonbar to your balcony or go all out and use your entire balcony as one big bar. It’s really up to you. Check out our inspiration page for thoughts on this. We advise you to use a plan to hang up multiple Balkonbars. It’s important to measure up your balcony. Measure the length of the entire area where you want to have a bar. Generally speaking a Balkonbar is one meter, but should you need less you can always shorten it. If you need 3.3 meters, for example, you could use two Balkonbars and shorten them to 0.75m to make the following plan:

Can I make a corner Balkonbar?

Sure, you just have to saw a corner into one of the Balkonbars to create the setup below:

The setup above would make a corner bar from 5 pieces onto one railing.

How do I assemble the Balkonbar?

We deliver the Balkonbar in a handy do-it-yourself kit. Before attaching the Balkonbar to the railing you will have to assemble the Balkonbar on a table. For ease of use we recommend using an electric drill with a philips head. We made an easy-to-follow instructions manual so that basically anyone can assemble the Balkonbar.

Wood and sustainability

About our wood and sustainability

What is the origin of the wood?
Douglas Wood

Douglas is one of the hardest European pinewoods with a fine to moderately rough nerve. Untreated Douglas has a lifespan of approximately 10 years. The Douglas glows light through the influence of solar radiation greyish, this gives the wood a rustic look. If you want to keep the recognizable red glow, our wood supplier advises to treate the wood with linseed oil. Of course you can also choose different types of wood stains. Wood is a natural product and there are always deviations in it and cracks can occur.

Fraké Wood

Frake is a sustainable wood from Mid-Africa. This wood is thermally treated, making it last much longer out in the weather. The treatment also gives the wood a warm redisch brown colour with a unique pattern.

Bamboo

Bamboo is a kind of grass which grows faster than any other crop in the world. That makes it really environmentally friendly compared to other types of wood. Bamboo is also super-strong too because of its fibres. New treatment technologies have made bamboo into a perfect building material for outside. The type we use for our Bamboo Balkonbar is a composite of bamboo, wax, and recycled plastic. This makes the Bamboo Balkonbar a very durable and long lasting product with little maintenance.

Do I have to treat the wood?

In principle, the wood of our products does not need to be treated. But since wood is a natural product it will always be small deviations over time, such as small cracks and color difference. Wood will always turn gray untreated. This gives the wood a rustic look. But if you want to preserve the original color of the wood, our wood suppliers advise to treat the wood. The wood can be treated with natural oil, stain or paint. We sell linseed oil under the name of Bar Oil in our webshop.

What is the effect oil on the wood?

We sell Bar Oil in our shop. This is a natural linseed oil that protects the original color of the wood against weather influences. The oil can easily be applied with a cloth or a sponge. Follow these steps: 1. Make sure that the wood is dry before applying the oil.
2. If the wood is humid during the finish, it may result in black spots.
3. Apply the oil thinly with a brush, roller or cloth
4. Allow about half an hour to dry
5. Remove the surface with clean, dry cloth so that no oil remains on the surface
6. Let the rags spread out to prevent scalding. If necessary, apply the following layers after a day of waiting and apply as many layers until the wood has nothing
absorbs more and is therefore saturated We recommend this action two to three times per
year for maximum results. Make sure that you let the cloth dry out first to avoid a fire hazard, because natural linseed oil is flammable.

Why is the Balcony Bar a sustainable and social product?

We use different types of wood for our products. One of the most common types of wood is Douglas one of the hardest European softwood species which is classified as durability class 3. The wood we use has been PEFC inspected and comes from forests in the Netherlands and Germany. After the wood has dried, it is delivered directly from the sawmill to the social workshop where it is
further processed into the Balkonbar. Other types of wood we use are all sustainably harvested and contribute to local development.

Why is the Balkonbar a local product?

We have sustainability and social entrepreneurship high on the agenda and believe that the Balkonbar should contribute to a healthy and inclusive society. We do this by working closely together with our social partners Pantar in Amsterdam and Reestmond in Meppel. These reintegration companies stand for the development of talents and opportunities for people with disabilities. Thanks to your purchase, they are assured of a nice and challenging workplace and you ensure that the product originates in a healthy and sustainable environment.
