Rope access glazing, glass replacement
Rope access glass replacement
Rope access glass replacement is far more complicated than any other glazing or simple glass installation project. Regarding to the work with the damaged and/or broken glass unit it can be really difficult and complicated. Glass replacement means “change (replace) the damaged or broken glass unit”. Carry out rope access glass replacement requires special skills and extensive knowledge about the actual glazing system, its fixings and the hidden parts of the glass unit. Repair Abseiling professionals use a special laser gauge to identify all dimensions (thickness, air-gap, lamination …etc) and characteristics of the glass. When the new glass unit ready for installation the damaged or broken glass has to be removed safely. It is the most delicate part of these rope access glass replacement projects. When the broken parts of the glass have been removed safely, the vacuum lifter has to be set up perfectly to the previously cleaned glass surface. When the glass secured properly, can start the removal of all fixings. This complex part of these rope access glass replacement projects requires extensive experience from the abseilers. Tension the lifting cable properly, remove all fixings one by one, secure and hang them up to the lanyards temporarily is the other complicated part of these rope access glazing project. This advanced working method must be planned in advance and perform with maximum focus and care. After that the glass removed and lifted out, the frame has to be prepared for the new glass unit. It must be clean, all gaskets and plastic spacers on place and ready for installation. Install the new glass into the frame with pinpoint accuracy and set it perfectly to the frame and the other glasses around is not an easy undertaking, but it is the most essential part of the perfect glass installation. If all sides and corners of the glass are in a right position and it is ready for fixing, then all screws, bolts, pressure plates, toggles or other fixings can be placed back to the system. When the final waterproofing is done by the gaskets or the mastic sealing then the rope access glass replacement project is done.

The most common glass issue in our practice is the s.c. Nickel Sulphide inclusion . It is a “mysterious” phenomenon, caused by the concentration of some (residue) components of the glass, what can cause extra, hidden internal tension inside the glass, generated by the heat treatment process. It is a rare, hidden factory error, but it is an existing issue unfortunately. In these cases the toughened glass is shattering spontaneously, without any external impact or previous sign. When toughened safety glass is shattering, it is shattering for a million small pieces what cannot hurt anyone (seriously). However the better solution for this glass safety requirement is the lamination of the toughened glass, named laminated toughened glass. This lamination layer between the glasses hold the shattered glass fragments together. This type of laminated glass can be used for any glazing works, frameless structural glazing and balustrade glazing mainly, but it is a basic requirement for partition glasses as well.
