Abseil glazing, glass replacement
Abseil glazing, glass replacement project completed by Repair Abseiling Rope Access Glazing Services at Roche Bobois Paris interior design studio, Fulham Road, London. One of the inaccessible glass panel of the conservatory roof has broken by a beautiful crystal candle holder, what has fallen from the windowsill of the top floor flat, about ten metres above. Luckily no one has injured in this accident, but the top layer of the toughened glass unit has broken what required professional replacement. The most common question has emerged when the access came up about this glazing project. Abseil glazing vs. scaffolding…(?) The access to the back garden through the residents and/or the beautiful interior design shop was almost impossible, so the abseil glazing version, offered by Repair Abseiling Glazing Services was much more preferred version by the owners and Daniel Watney LLP. As the internal surface of the glass pane covered by a frosted window film and the external part was broken our laser gauge couldn’t give us all necessary information about the glass unit itself. As the hidden edges and the thickness wasn’t measurable in place our team took the glass unit off to take accurate measurement, find the perfect colour match window film and reproduce this unit perfectly. As this high level glass replacement project mustn’t affect the business of this delicate shop our abseiling glazing team sorted this issue quickly and discretely. After a proper and thorough preparation the damaged glass unit removed in a few hours and replaced temporarily with a polycarbonate sheet. This part lifted out professionally with the adequate vacuum lifter, using advanced rigging systems and rope access techniques. Based on the details of the damaged unit our manufacturer has made a new glass unit in few days. Abseiling glazing repairs can be a complex project, what is not restricted to the replacement and installation only. Finding a proper manufacturer, finding the best price for all necessary materials and other additional details, or offer alternative solutions (like glass polishing) are a huge part of our comprehensive glazing services. Luckily Repair Abseiling Limited has some reliable partners and suppliers for these high level glazing repair projects. After this thorough preparation and organisation in the background the installation of the new glass unit accomplished in few hours. As the proper mastic sealing is fundamental part of any abseil glazing projects our abseilers carried out a perfect waterproof mastic application around the new glass unit. Professional execution, minimum disruption of the facilities and the most reasonable price all together made our client absolutely satisfied.
