Getting up there for commercial glazing refurbishment

Nolan Windows Manchester glazing refurbishment is a world away from the simple domain of low level window washers and glazing technicians. The tasks required may be the same and even the methods are usually similar, but there is an additional problem- getting into people and materials into place.For most buildings (no matter how tall) glazing repairs and cleaning are relatively simple. IRATA qualified staff can usually rig ropes and lines from the top of the building or an overhanging structure. Temporary anchors can be installed if none exist. Using rigorously tested, safe methods workers can move up, down, and across the vertical planes of the building, positioning themselves wherever they need to be.

This is the most common access method for commercial glazing refurbishment. While the difficulties are considerable- wind, weather, a whole variety of obstacles and of course gravity- the professionals who do this every day are well practiced at overcoming them and getting the job done.Additional difficulties can crop up where there are overhead power cables and other potential hazards. If new glass panels are required, getting these into place can be quite difficult from either the inside or the outside. Sometimes the streets below may need to be closed to eliminate any chance of falling materials or tools impacting with passers-by.

Sometimes, however, it’s even more complicated. Horizontal or domed glass roofs present a new level of difficulty. Imagine the huge and beautiful dome of the British Museum. It’s one of the most architecturally stunning features in any London building, but think how awful it would look if instead of a bright clear pale blue, the glazing was dirty grey brown and cracked. It simply wouldn’t do, but getting up there to clean such beautiful domes and make glazing repairs is not easy. Usually the simplest way to do it is with electrical lifts from the ground up.

All members of a double glazing ombudsman will have a comprehensive written guarantee which meets the minimum standards required by the scheme. This guarantee will be made available by the member to any customer or prospective customer who wishes to inspect the guarantee prior to placing their order. The member’s guarantee is usually issued and come into force once payment of all outstanding balances have been received and cleared by the member. Each member’s guarantee may vary a little but one thing they will have in common will be that their guarantee satisfies the minimum standard required by the ombudsman. Nothing in the guarantee restricts or affects any statutory rights. It will cover all the main components of the installation including the quality of workmanship.
