To keep things simple there are a couple of british standards that balustrades and balconies need to be designed to.These are primarily BS 6399 & BS 6180. Also not forgetting the building regs!
Basically loadings in and around a domestic house should  be to ensure safety and compliance 0.74Kn.This is gone into in more depth in Table  4 of BS6399-1:1996.
