High Level Glazing

We were appointed by Axa Insurance Company to carry out the replacement of a large double glazed unit on the 14th floor, the top of Fountain House, Broad Street Mall, Reading. This is after having the job declined by their preferred glazing contractor. This replacement took take place early in February 2005.

Since then we have carried out high level replacements at Apex Plaza, Snap on Business Solutions, Foster Wheeler, Green Park, The Madjeski Stadium and the Millenium Hotel, Reading.

We also replaced 3 large failed units on ITV Meridians building down in Fareham. This is yet again strengthening our position in the market place as the areas premier glazing contractor. It is not unusual for a site to have over £1million worth of plant by way of access platforms and cranes to safely replace high level broken glass.

We were contracted by The Oracle shopping Centre to replace a large double glazed unit to the roof area over the shopping mall. This required internal scaffolding that could not be erected until 10.00pm and had to be struck and cleared away by 10.00 am the following day. All went without hitch.

All of our vehicles/personnel are equipped with full body harnesses as standard kit in anticipation of any eventuality.


Car Showrooms

Recently we were contracted to replace the revolving glass doors for Porsche West London, at Chiswick. We also refurbished lime scale damaged glass at the Porshce Centre Hatfield.

This involved treating the tall full height showroom glazing with a specialist scratch removal system. Although the product was not developed for this application we felt it should be effective and worth a try. It consists of mechanical abrasive scrubbing, effectively "sanding down" the glass with decreasing degrees of coarseness and then rejouvenating the surface with polishing compound.

This whole process saved an approximate £10,000 in replacement costs, not to mention the increase of ours and their carbon footprint. We have over the years been called upon by the following:-
