North London Glass Changes

Anglia High Level Glazing were initially instructed to conduct a full condition report on this commercial buildings glazing systems to include full audited water tests of the refurbished buildings overhead atria.

A typical glazing inspection will encompass an assessment of the system components including –

  • All glass to include glazed units and single panels inclusive
  • All structural and ancillary fixings;
  • All bar-work including transom and mullion bars and interfaces thereof;
  • All gasketry and weather seals
  • Testing and inspection of all window opening mechanisms
  • All silicone seals and associated weather flashings
  • Associated building interfaces
  • System Pressure plates and Cover Caps

Our inspection identified a number of issues, from fractured overhead glazing, condensated DGU’s, leak ingress to flashing details and a number of issues to the operability of the aluminium window systems onsite.

A detailed report was then submitted to the client. This included a photographic record of all defects founds; Health and Safety implications reported and graded; projection and costing of the existing and  future issues and remedial advice given, with priority categorisation for action and budget consideration.

Our client subsequently instructed us to carry out a number of remedial repair works to include 12 No DGU replacements, window refurbishment works to all aluminium openers, full cleaning of all overhead glazing and additional sealing operations to areas affected by leak ingress.

Glass replacements here came with their own unique challenge. Each DGU was housed within a full wrap around frame – meaning each casement required full removal and disassembly onsite. Existing bracketry was found to be insufficient during pre-lim therefore new, heavy duty metalwork was designed, manufactured and installed to ensure all units could be re-instated safely and within the mansard glazing’s weight loading parameters.

Aluminium Windows

Aluminium Windows

Aluminium Windows

Modern Aluminium Windows offer a great alternative to the traditional timber window or in many cases the more modern UPVC window type. Why is this? well in a nutshell the construction aluminium frame profiles allows a slim profile which in turn allows  additional light into the living or working environment.

Coupled to this the inherent strength afforded by extruded aluminium allows a full range of size, ironmongery types and architectural layouts to be used and thus the aluminium window type is used extensively up and down the country in large commercial buildings such as offices, shopping centres and corporate installations.

Unfortunately all these attributes do not prevent the inevitable effects of the environment such as UV degradation, water damage, and cyclical mechanical forces due to wind and rain. All this means that ultimately all installations will need some TLC in order to restore them to their former glory and give you the owner or manager years of extended service.

This is why Anglia High Level Glazing specialize in upgrading and refurbishming Aluminium Windows and Glazing Installations. We have over 20 years experience in the inspection, identification and rectification of the previously mentioned glazing issues and having worked for most major contractors Nationwide we are perfectly placed to resolve any issues you may be experiencing.

If you own or manage any commercial building with Aluminium Windows and/or difficult to reach glazing, we have found time and time again that often there is no obvious sign of a problem but a routine inspection by specialists such as Anglia High Level Glazing will identify issues before they get serious.

So why not contact us for a no obligation inspection of your Aluminium Windows – it could save you a fortune in the long run.
