Every glazing system in its operational life will suffer water ingress at some point. Leaking glazing can be as a direct result of glazing failure, draining system blockage or seal deterioration. If your glazing is leaking, this can be highly disruptive to the daily operations of the building and occupants. Not only can leaking glazing be disruptive, it also creates a massive health and safety issues, especially within high footfall areas.
For a glazing system to be water-tight and keep the inclement UK weather out, the system is highly reliant on EPDM weather gaskets and sealants. It is therefore critical that regular maintenance and servicing of the glazing system is fully up to date. Failure to do so will dramatically increase the likelihood that your glazing system will age prematurely, and the building residents will soon experience water ingress / leaks.
Not all leaks to a glazing system are caused as a result of a lack of maintenance, it can also be a direct consequence of previous poor repairs carried out with inadequate fitting or even due to the original design not being completed properly.
A leaking or poor performing glazing system should be investigated immediately as leaving it can result in complete system failure and a major health and safety issue.
