Fast Reactions Manage The Risk for Bacardi

15 Jun 2015
Case study


Glass Aftercare’s reactive maintenance services have come to the assistance of Bacardi Global Brands at their HQ in Dorset Square, London. When two triple laminated glass floor units were broken on a glass walkway, they needed to be replaced as quickly as possible to minimise the danger. Glass Aftercare’s expertise in quickly sourcing and matching specific types of technical glass was essential. Furthermore the company’s experience in managing installations within confined areas and working to tight schedules was also vital.

Comprehensive Planned and Reactive maintenance services, covering all types of architectural glazing, are central to the support provided by Glass Aftercare. These services are designed to minimise the risk of claims which could result from broken or worn glazing and materials that may cause further collateral damage or present a health and safety risk. The company has a dedicated team of specialists to supply these services and ensure that the maintenance packages or repairs provided comply with the latest guidelines and legislation.

Having assessed the broken floor units, Glass Aftercare provided Bacardi with matching triple laminated floor units with a silk screen manifestation and non-slip surface. At the same time, Glass Aftercare also replaced a large stairwell glazed unit as well as a glazed unit in the reception area. To carry out the work, Glass Aftercare employed specialist lifting and handling equipment to install the new glass panels which measured up to three metres in length and weighed 300kg.

By appointing Glass Aftercare to manage the replacement of the broken floor units, the risks to the public were effectively minimised. The Bacardi HQ now benefits from the installation of the most suitable and technically advanced technical glass solutions available.
