Aluminium and steel windows have a long life span, although components and double glazed units can fail their effective operation. Trained in a variety of glazing systems, we can often upgrade existing windows and repair them. We hold a stock of various parts and components including replacement gaskets from obsolete designs, tilt and turn mechanisms, sliding sash counterbalances, handles, hinges including friction stays. Other ways to upgrade existing windows include: • Glass replacement to a higher specification • commercial secondary glazing • In some instances double glazed units can be installed to replace single glazing • Solar control and safety film application • Seals, gaskets and brush pile can be replaced – we even hold stock of some obsolete designs • Components such as counterbalances can be replaced to restore full operation • Window furniture can be overhauled or replaced Commercial glaziers The complex and hazardous nature of the work requires each project to be planned individually and precisely with close attention to the Health & Safety of building users, operatives and the general public. This includes:- • Risk Assessments and Method Statements are detailed and site-specific • Licences for road closures are obtained as required • To minimise risk and disruption works can be conducted outside normal business or trading hours • Specialist access equipment is brought in as required • Rope access services & glazing trained rope access technicians • Innovative and cost-saving approach to more difficult commercial glass replacement projects often removing the need for large plant • All Glazing Face operatives are trained to work safely at height and in accordance with the Work at Height Regulations 2005 We have many years of experience of providing commercial glass replacement services and can ensure that all works of this nature are completed safely, efficiently and on budget. ,,, If you find you are paying out for more and more unscheduled repairs and reactive maintenance or if you are the new owner or manager of a property, you could benefit greatly from a detailed report following an expert inspection of the entire glazing package. At The Glazing Face we use our extensive experience of different glazing systems to identify and assess the condition of glass, framework, caps, seals and fixings on an entire building or a single elevation. Our detailed report itemises these findings and provides recommendations for prioritising repairs or refurbishment together of course with detailed costings for these works. It is then recommended that the planned preventative maintenance visits be carried out, usually on a six-monthly or annual basis to re-inspect the glazing system and undertake any minor repairs needed. During the time not on site, reactive maintenance on unexpected items such as glass replacements can be carried out and the programme is continuously reviewed and frequency of visits updated accordingly.
