Some of our recent high level glass replacement projects
Double glazed unit replacement
High level glass replacement project has been completed at 2 Cathedral Street, SE1, where six damaged double glazed unit required attention and our professional rope access services for the professional replacement. This special shaped building and its location have made this glazing project and the lifting operation really difficult. As the busy area didn’t make possible the using of any lorry size crane, our abseiler team had to set up a specially extended mobile crane to the roof. Despite these difficulties this commercial glazing project completed seamlessly on time and within budget. You can read more about this project HERE.
Roof glass replacement
This damaged, toggled roof glass unit has been replaced above the escalator area at the Stratford International Station, HS1 platform by our professional abseiler team as a nightshift project for Volker – Fitzpatrick. This broken glass unit and its leaking joints have caused a serious headache for the maintenance team of Network Rail and our customer (Volker – Fitzpatrick).

Balustrade glass replacement
Three shattered balustrade glass units have been replaced at Booth Court – Lindsay Court, Lewisham /L&Q – Metro Glaze/.
