AHLG Ltd were called upon by our client to investigate severe leak ingress to the buildings sloped aluminium windows. After an initial inspection our surveying team identified a number of inherent defects to these windows that had combined to create severe leaks and condensation under rainfall.
To rectify leaks our proposal included the manufacture and installation of purpose designed weathering fins that would act has deflecting guards against wind driven rain, particularly on such an exposed facade. Utilising a polycarbonate product, our raked flashings were all cut to size to accurately fit each window and were mechanically fixed and silicone weathered to offer full defense against the elements.
Additionally all retaining EPDM gaskets were replaced, opening mechanisms adjusted and lubricated and hardware overhauled to create an as new aesthetic and operability. Once complete our team conducted a full, audited water test to confirm success and took pleasure in providing our client with a long term guarantee against future leak ingress.
Due to the buildings’ proximity to a busy town centre high street we utilised our specialist rope access division to safely conduct works. Working with local authorities and in order to minimise disruption to the general public, we installed manned cordoning at ground level to safeguard area below works and to negate the need to use large and expensive plant.
AHLG Ltd specialise in high level works and can offer numerous high level services via rope access.
