Glazing inspection and Surveys are being increasingly requested as part of a preventative maintenance program to identify and eliminate any health and safety risks posed by overhead glazed structures. We tailor our glazing inspections to our clients requirements including additional services such as water testing or immediate spot repairs.

What can be identified during  glazing inspections?

Typical issues identified from our inspections can include –

  • Defective glazing – cracked panels or those suffering from hermetic seal failure (misted)
  • Causes of leaks
  • Missing / defective fixings
  • Defective / missing weather seals
  • Condition of existing system gasketry
  • Defective mechanisms
  • Insufficient glass isolation
  • Non-safety glass

Our surveying team will assess the structure and create a photographic log of any defects identified. These will be collated into a photographic report where we highlight any issues and the subsequent risks posed. Upon completion, we provide our recommended repairs to address identified defects and return the system to a serviceable standard. Any items requiring immediate attention are identified separately.

What structures can we inspect?

Our glazing inspections are conducted to a variety of structures including overhead glazing, atriums, curtain wall facades, overhead canopies and windows throughout the UK. Prior to works, we will specify the safest method of access to inspect the glazed structures considering height and locations. We can access structures using our in-house IRATA trained Rope Access Technicians, MEWP's using IPAF Technicians or existing gantry / cradle systems.

Have you had an issue where glass spontaneously fractured?

Glazing fractures can be caused by a variety of different issues such as poor installation quality, external impact or inclusions within the glazing panes. Our team can assist with spontaneous glass breakages investigations. This can include a visual inspection of the quality of installation of the defective glazing or the testing of fractured glass for any inclusions.
