Leaking glazing systems can be very disruptive to the daily operations of commercial buildings. Due to the design of many new and old commercial buildings the glazing tends to be located above or within critical high footfall areas and leaks can often cause major health and safety slip risks to tenants and members of the public.
Glazing systems are reliant on EPDM weather gaskets and sealant to keep them weather tight and serviceable, their components are susceptible to age and weather-related dilapidation and do have a serviceable lifespan.
It is therefore key to ensure the ongoing maintenance of your glazing system is fully up to date and kept in a serviceable condition. However, we understand that servicing can be omitted and consequently a glazing system will deteriorate and inhabitants will soon experience a leaking glazing system.
A leaking glazing system can not only occur as a result of lack of maintenance, it can also be as a direct result of previous, poor repairs due to inadequate fitting or even from the original design of the glazing system not being completed properly.
If your glazing system is leaking and not performing as it should be, you need act fast because if you leave the system without investigating the leaks, this can lead to complete system failure and a major health and safety issue.
