Access Balconies

JOMY manufactures balconies to provide optimal access to the JOMY Fire Escape Ladder, out of heavy duty durable aluminum that will not rust.

Lack of access to fire escape ladders makes some ladders dangerous. The ladder may be too far or have inconvenient access from a window or roof gutter. The lack of professionalism of some installers results in bad practices and reduced safety.

  • Suspended, mounted on brackets, suspended from facade

Materials

  • Balcony constructed from extruded anodized aluminum profiles with natural mat finishing, assembled using stainless steel fasteners
  • Factory polyester powder coating in any RAL color on request

Mechanical Properties

  • Designed to carry useful load of 102 lb/ft² .

 

Available in standard sizes for easy ordering and fast delivery

Materials

Only materials that are not subject to corrosion can be used, including extruded profiles and plates of high resistance aluminum alloy, anodized 10 micron, natural mat finishing, and fasteners of stainless steel, A2-70 DaN/mm2.

No protective treatment, painting or maintenance is required, except when exposed to aggressive environments. Welding is not allowed.

Steel is excluded, except for fasteners and in cases of extreme span. In these cases, an adequate isolation between steel and aluminum is applied to prevent electrolytic coupling. The access balcony can be factory painted in any RAL color by polyester powder coating.

Composition

The balcony is partly pre-assembled in the factory, using bolts and rivets. Final assembly is executed on the construction site. The balcony is fixed to the wall using bolts and aluminum alloy profiles.

Landings

The frames of the landings are composed of hollow profiles of 8.2" x 1.2" x 0.1" with double chambers. Joists of at least 2.4" x 0.8" x 0.1", spaced at no more than 12", are fixed in this frame. These joists support a deck made of aluminum alloy tread plates that are perforated to drain rain water. The tread plates are riveted to the joists. The allowed tread plates are :

  • Five-bar pattern plates with thickness 0.1" to 0.2"
  • Plates with perforations (0.4" and 0.6") with standing edge and thickness 0.1"

Guardrail

The guardrails are linked. They are made of a handrail of at least 2" wide with rounded edges and a radius of at least 0.06". They are mounted onto hollow pickets of 2.4" x 1" x 0.1" with rounded edges. The pickets are fixed  in the landing frames at least every 2' 5".

In between these pickets is constructed one of the following:

  • A guardrail with three round tubes of 0.7" x 0.1", set parallel to handrail and running through pickets
  • A guardrail with square tubes of 1" x 1" x 0.06" with rounded edges, set parallel to pickets and spaced at 4"; these tubes are fixed into the handrail at the top and in a square tube of 1.2" x 1.2" x 0.1" at the bottom; pickets run through this tube
  • A custom made guardrail according to agreed specifications

The height of the guardrail is at least 3' 0" on the landings.

The handrails are at least 1.6" cleared from all obstacles.

Supporting structure

The supporting structure of a balcony consists of columns or wall bracings. The columns or bracings are made of U-shaped or L-shaped channels of appropriate sizes, with rounded edges. They provide the required mechanical resistance. The columns are constructed on an adequate foundation. The wall bracings are fixed to the wall by anchor bolts of adequate sizes and numbers.

Mechanical properties

The balcony can support a uniformly distributed load of 500 Kg/m2 on the landing as well as a point load of 440lb applied anywhere on landing deck (standards NBN 1-50 and NFP 06-001).

The guardrails withstand a horizontally applied uniform load of 100 Kg/m without permanent deformation (standards NBN 03-103, NFP 06-001 and NFP 01-012).

The manufacturer will share calculations of stability, deformations, and stresses on request.

 

JOMY retractable ladders are a good substitute solution for evacuation and access.

Stairs are considered to be the preferred solution for collective fire evacuation and access.

All JOMY staircases are produced from anodized aluminum profiles. They come in different layouts (Inline, crossed, rectangular, etc) and structures (suspended or self-supported).

 

JOMY offers various types of staircases:

• Counterbalanced retractable stairs;

• Variable height stairs with a changeable platform;

• Mobile façade access stairs;

• Custom stair constructions according your specific requirements.

 

Multiple stair accessories are available to make your stairs even more safe and burglar resistant.

The lower flight of the Staircase can be Counterbalanced for optimal use of space, aesthetic reasons and prevention of improper use.

To prevent improper use or to limit the use of space at ground level or for aesthetic reasons, the lower flight of the staircase can be counterbalanced and folded away so that it's hidden. Counterbalanced stairs can be engineered completely mechanical or with an electric counterbalanced brake system.

JOMY counterbalanced ladders have counterweights for smooth opening.

The JOMY counterbalanced ladder can be released from below to provide lockable access to mezzanines or rooftops. The ladder can also be released from above to provide safe evacuation from the bottom of existing fire escapes or other applications.

 

Counterbalanced lead weights are concealed inside the patented side rails of the ladder for smooth and reliable deployment, regardless of whether snow, ice, or salt air are present.

 

JOMY counterbalanced ladders are aluminum constructions with nylon bushings and stainless cables and fasteners. These materials provides a life-time of rust-free and maintenance-free service.

 

Custom heights, widths and OSHA compliant cages are available to suit any requirement.

 

JOMY can offer professional fixed aluminum ladders in any configuration and dimensions.

Starting from extruded aluminum profiles on which the design is owned by JOMY, JOMY assembles fixed ladders in all types of dimensions and configurations. All in line with applicable American regulations like OSHA and ANSI.

The most sold fixed ladders by JOMY are the Caged Ladder and the Well Ladder or Basement Ladder.

 

Fire egress

For over 35 years, JOMY has been studying and developing new ways to make fire escape plans easier and safer, with worldwide success.

The normal exits, stairways, and elevators are frequently inaccessible in a fire. Often, the only way out is through the windows. However, jumping from a great height is risky, and the firemen with their cranes may not be there as quickly as you need them. When they arrive, they cannot be everywhere at once.

Time is crucial as the flames and smoke are approaching! This is when you want to have access to an escape ladder or stairs that are reachable from your outside window.

Take your time now and look around. How do you get out in an emergency when the normal exit is blocked.

Regardless of what sort of building or windows you’ve got to work with, JOMY has the solution.
