Glass and Glazing Defects

Glass Defect

Common Glass Defect

ADT Façade Solutions have extensive experience in Façade Design and our background in facade architecture and cladding engineering provides us with unique technical knowledge of almost every type of glazing defect.

Glass is potentially very strong, however its strength is reduced by the presence of invisibly small defects.The breakage of glass  can also impair the safety, security and comfort of a building.  The causes of glass breakage can be varied and we can help identify and minimise its re-occurrence.

This year we have undertaken a number of façade upgrades, mostly from projects completed in the early 1990s some as far back as 1980 and some completed more recently. Each of these represents a niche market and for 2013 we would hope to develop these further. Façade upgrades, alterations and remedial are challenging and of interest to us so please continue to send your enquiries. We have access to every type of façade system from the majority of system suppliers.
