Residents at Bridge House in Camden have benefited from work between specialist contractor Mila Window and Door Maintenance and pioneering award winning Jackloc ® window restrictors.
The 37-unit block of flats has recently undergone a repairs and maintenance programme to its windows and doors, but on first inspection it was discovered that there was a bigger issue to address than just their condition – the bottom cill height of the large Tilt and Turn opening windows was below what Mila Maintenance saw as a safe height for preventing potential falling and a solution was required to address the problem.
Speaking for Mila Window and Door Maintenance Business Development Manager Will Chan explained further.
We were asked by the client to survey the site to see what repairs and maintenance actions were required on the Tilt and Turn windows which were in situ with a view to carrying out the work as a part of a planned maintenance contract.
It is a prime example of the importance and value of using a specialist contractor for this kind of work
Only through our experience were we able to immediately identify that there was a potential issue with regards to safety in this kind of environment, and through that same experience we were able to recognise the solution which was available.
We work with Jackloc ® extensively and we know their products are well designed and proven to be fit for purpose for the application required. Understanding the product and particularly how it is installed is really important – in fact correct installation is critical to its proper functionality over the life-time of its guarantee.
