One our recent projects was a glass replacement project for London Symphony Orchestra Warehouse.
After receiving a email from Nathan, asking if we could arrange a meeting to measure up some misty double glazed units in the companies warehouse, it was a true honour to be asked to price up this job.
After surveying the windows in question, Nathan was very specific in what he wanted us to achieve for LSO London, the windows were very drafty, with lots of heat escaping through the glass and broken hinges, there was 4 double glazed units out of the 10 that had failed and become misty, but Nathan requested that we replaced all 10 units with a upgraded A-rated glass specification.
After the quotation was agreed, Nathan decided on having the 4mm low iron toughened safety glass on the external pane, separated by a black thermix warm edge spacer bar, Argon Gas filled, and a 4mm planitherm total + low e heat insulated glass by saint gobain on the internal pane, this glass specification is used on A rated windows and doors throughout England.
We also replaced 4 pairs of 24″ top hung friction stay hinges, and some cockspur handle wedges, this really did help with keeping the 30+ year old Windows air tight. After a long hard day, our installation team completed the job, with minimal disruption, with the existing windows restored looking very shiny and new!
These windows were Aluminium profile on a commercial property, to be able to restore these aged windows with a simple clean, affordable glass replacement, and even upgrade them to a more energy efficient glass, it shows that there is no need to replace the frames, and makes us very proud at Misty Glaze that we can achieve these level of results.
