The Australian Standard for glass in buildings outlines that glass panels in doors, sidelights, bathrooms or near floor level must be “A” Grade safety glass. CHR’s glaziers are experienced glass repairers and will replace your glass to your total satisfaction.
Safety and security
For safety and security reasons it is important to have broken glass in windows replaced as a matter of urgency.
Although some damaged glass panels may look safe enough, cracks can travel quite easily causing sections of the glass to break away creating a dangerous situation.
Once a window has a hole in the glass it’s like an open invitation for intruders to gain access to your property.
