Proprietor Namistay Restaurant

Thank you so much for your speedy service the window fitters were very courteous and professional. I placed the order over the phone yesterday and the next day the window fitter came in the mourning and measured up and then was back in the afternoon to fit. Excellent turnaround with a friendly smile
Dawn WilbyMany thanks; your glazier did a great job! Thank you very much indeed.
Ms Tomcod

Your team provided us with an excellent service at a competitive rate. We had a very complicated installation programme for some very large sculptures that required the removal of the gallery window as the sculptures were too large for the existing doorways and then the replacement of the windows at the end of the installation. The team worked extremely hard to complete the job at an anti social time of day in both the morning and the evening and did a very professional job
David Jenkins Head of Art Services Halcyon Gallery

I am writing to thank you and your staff for a first class job installing our new windows. The weather was so cold and windy I thought we were going to have to postpone until things improved. Your staff worked hand in hand with the refrigeration engineers so that the new display cabinet came in as the old window came out. Your staff are a credit to you. Thanks again for a job done very quickly and efficiently!

Thank you so much for coming to our offices and repairing the broken glass in our door, the glazier who came was so polite and helpful; our office is very quiet due to the nature of our work. The glazier caused absolutely no inconvenience to us in any way. We would like to thank you again for such a great service.

Glass safety

Safety for Glazed Walls, Doors, Side Panels, Windows and screens.

safety regulations

1. Critical Safety Areas.

The areas of internal and external walls which are considered ‘critical locations’ in terms of safety are:

1.1 Between the finished floor level and 1500mm above that level in doors, and in side panels which are within 300mm of either edge of the door.

1.2 Between the finished floor level 800mm above that level in the case of walls, partitions and windows.

2. Requirements of BS 6262 Part 4

2.1 Safe Breakage

For doors and door side panels, the glazing used should not break, or should break safely in accordance with Class C of the standard impact test BS 6206(1981) if 900mm wide or less, or Class B if wider than 900mm.

For other low level glazing the pane should comply with at least BS 6206 Class C.

Use laminated or toughened glass, or plastics glazing sheet, or wired glass, that meet BS6206, or glass with plastic film applied so the pane of glass with film meets BS6206.

For unbacked mirror glazing accessible to impact from one side only, the pane should comply with BS 6206 Class C0 if equal to or less than 900mm wide or Class B0 if wider than 900mm.

Unbacked glazing either has no backing behind which does not retain its integrity or is cracked or broken when tested as described in BS 7449 (1991): Appendix A.

If the mirror glazing is fully backed by a solid material, like a wall or timber wardrobe door and it is securely fixed so that there is space of no more than 25mm between the mirror and the backing material, then a glass which does not comply with BS 6206 may be used

2.2 Small Panes 

Ordinary annealed glass may be used in small panes up to a maximum width of 250mm and an area not exceeding 0.5m2. Such glass must no be less than 6mm in thickness, expect in the case of traditional lead lights and copper lights, where 4mm can be used.

2.3 Robustness

Robustness refers to the strength of the glazing forming fronts to non domestic buildings such as shops, showrooms, offices, factories and public buildings.

Some glazing, such as polycarbonate, is inherently strong. Annealed glass, that does not normally comply with BS 6206, can gain robustness with increased thickness. Annealed glass may only be used in critical locations, therefore, when the nominal thickness and dimensions are as listed in the table below.

Nominal Thickness (mm)

Max Pane Size Dimensions (mm)


1100 x 1100


2250 x 2250


BS 6262 Pt 4                     4500 x 4500

Document N 1992             3000 x 4500
