Newmarket Stud Glass Repair
After completing several projects for the world famous Darley Stud Newmarket, we were instructed on another project which covered 2 of the many barns situated at the stud.
Initial Works involved 3no ground level glass changes to the stables on one of the barns. We removed the existing wooden beads and carefully took out and disposed of the existing fractured panels.
All associated apertures were cleared of any shards of glass and any further debris. We then applied a neat thin silicone bead to the interface of the apertures before introducing new glazing and re-applying the wooden beads.
The main aspect of this particular project involved cleaning works both internally and externally of all glazing to the stable barns.
Since the glass in question had not been cleaned for so long (maybe 20 years or more) this was a considerable task requiring a lot of time and innovative access solutions.
We utilised the benefits yet again of a large articulated MEWP plus a small electric scissor lift to tackle the internal glazing.
Care was taken not to disturb the four legged patrons within the barns, making the electric scissor the ideal solution.
We systematically manoeuvred the Articulated MEWP around the perimeter of the first barn and employed moppers and squeegees on extendable poles. We had to link multiple hoses to cover the size of the barn.
Barn #2 was unoccupied by horses during our works so we were able to drive the articulated MEWP through the corridor of the barn. As always all high level works are conducted safely employing harnesses and lanyards fixed to the plant equipment.
Works were completed on time and the transformation was amazing! – both ourselves and our client were more than happy with the finished look.
