Many of these units formed sections of the curtain walling and would have required specialist and very costly access equipment to replace them.
The Glass Polishing Company repaired the damage in 10 days.
Cost to replace the units - £36,400

Glass Bar Top - Trinity College, Cambridge
When the college refurbished their student union bar, the bespoke glass bar top sustained very heavy scratch damage.
The bar top was not only expensive, the manufacture and process time to have the units replaced would have put the opening of the bar back by 6-8 weeks.
The Glass Polishing Company repaired the damage in 4 hours.
Cost to replace the units - £3,500
Cost to repair the units - £325
Saving to client - £3,175
Balustrade Glass - Skipton Building Society, Yorkshire
During the construction of this head office complex, the majority of the glass and stairwell units across 4 floors, sustained scratch damage through careless cleaning practices.
Both balcony and stairwell glass were bonded top and bottom, incorporating one piece handrails, spanning the 4 floors, making replacing the damaged units virtually impossible.
The Glass Polishing Company repaired the damage in 8 days.
Cost to replace the units - £85,000
Cost to repair the units - £18,980
Saving to client - £65,020
