Glazing leaks often occur during a systems lifespan due to age related dilapidation of components such as existing weather seals and gaskets or through blockages as a result of a lack of maintenance.
Common causes for glazing leaks include –
If left unattended, these can cause further damage to the glazing system resulting in increased repair expenses and health and safety risks to building tenants.
Sky Access UK can assess and identify the causes of glazing leaks as well as produce a tailored repair package to resolve issues and eliminate associated risks. Not all glazing leaks are age related – they can sometimes be the result of incorrectly specified past repairs or the result of incorrect installation.
As well as a site survey to assess defects, we can conduct water tests to glazing systems to identify leak locations. When an issue is identified, we will investigate the replacement of defective components and, where possible, propose upgrades to provide clients with long term peace of mind. Common repairs include –
Our expertise in specialist access mean we can assist with glazing leaks regardless of location from leaks to overhead atriums, existing curtain wall structures to opening windows.
For peace of mind, we can also offer a warranty on completed works against leaks reoccurring. Contact our team to find out more.
