Type of Work
We were contacted by the FM department of the New City College Epping Forest Campus in Loughton, Essex. They had a number of double glazing related problems with the windows on their commercial building.
A site visit and a meeting was scheduled. We were provided with a map of the whole campus and access to all areas of this extremely large commercial building. We were instructed to check every window in every room of the building for issues and to determine what level of repair was needed.
The Misty Glaze team spent 8 hours surveying the building. Many of the rooms had broken windows problems relating to locks, handles, and stay hinges.
The main problems consisted of:
- Broken commercial window handles.
- Broken window locks on commercial windows.
- Broken heavy duty friction stay hinges.
- Commercial tilt and turn problems.
Most of the windows throughout the Epping Forest Campus did not require any broken window parts to be supplied and fitted, they just needed some TLC. After commercial frames are installed, they should always be serviced every year to minimise ongoing window repairs.
Misty Glaze can offer yearly window and door service programmes for our commercial clients. This consists of checking the operational qualities of each window and door, and applying the correct lubrication to minimise any future costly broken commercial window repairs. We managed to locate the parts for the broken windows and carried out a full test on each faulty commercial frame. The window repairs consisted of a full tilt and turn gearing kit for commercial aluminium tilt and turn windows. Including full window locking mechanism with special order commercial window handles.
After successful tests on the window repairs, the broken windows are now fully operational!
Misty Glaze engineers have certification to work on all broken window locks, spares and repairs. We have recently been certified to perform full tilt and turn repairs on commercial buildings.
