Glass handling, breakages, inherent risks and installation
- When handling tempered glass, the utmost care must be taken to avoid any personal lifting injury and/or glass breakages.
- Whilst tempered safety glass, when broken will shatter into small cube like shapes these small fragments of glass can still cause small lacerations to skin when handled.
- If in any case the tempered glass does shatter always ensure that gloves are worn for the clean-up. Heavy duty steel dust pan and brush should be used and glass placed in a small vessel then carried to a larger refuse bin.
- Glass thicknesses of 10mm and 12mm in the panel sizes we sell can weigh anything up to 70kg per panel. Care must be taken and correct, safe lifting practises must be employed to minimise the risk of back injury. Always use your legs to lift rather than your back, crouching down with a straight back and rising up slowly with one hand placed underneath the panel and one on the side to stabilise it.
- Always ensure that the path where the glass will be carried is free from obstructions and trip hazards. If possible a third or fourth person should act as a spotter and guide the people carrying the glass through the safest route possible.
- Wholesale Glass Fencing accepts NO responsibility for any injury or lass or damage to property through the mishandling of glass and hardware products.
- Care must be taken when placing an order to ensure that the correct products are ordered to suit your project. Returns that are through no fault of Wholesale Glass Fencing will attract a restocking fee of 25% of the product returned and the freight costs of the return will be borne by the customer. This cost should be calculated carefully by the customer as it may be the case that the freight is more expensive than the amount requested to be refunded.
- All products delivered through freight companies should be unpacked within the first 48 hours after being delivered to inspect for breakages or damaged products.
- Glass should not be left stacked together with no space between panels as this can attract moisture to form in between the panels. Sometimes this can cause staining of the glass. Wholesale Glass Fencing accepts no responsibility for staining that occurs to glass if we are not notified within 48 hours of delivery.
- The stainless-steel products that Wholesale Glass Fencing sells is either of the 316l marine grade or Duplex2205 variety. Whilst the name stainless steel does imply the steel will not tarnish this cannot be guaranteed.
