  6. Square meter rates for the supply of glass, services of new glazing or repairs are governed by market factors and will either rise or decrease accordingly.

  8. When removing cracked or broken glass from frames, although all care is taken, Fast Glass will not be responsible for any damage to frames and/or adjacent glass when "chopping out" old glass or putty. Nor any damage to wooden glazing beads when removing or refitting, especially when they are painted in position.
  9. Fast Glass commits to removing all broken glass from frames when replacing cracked or broken windows. All frames, i.e. steel or wood or aluminium, must be in good condition. We cannot install glass or replace existing glass in frames that have been damaged.
  10. Fast Glass is not responsible for damage to flower beds or plants etc. As most work must be done from the outside, it may become necessary to stand in beds to perform the work expected. Clients are to move away all window coverings and ornaments in the vicinity of their frames.
  11. We do not clean glass that has been glazed even though there are finger marks etc. This cannot be done when glass is held in position with fresh putty as it is subject to movement etc. This must be done by the client no sooner than one week from installation. Painting of frames to be done by the client only when putty feels dry to the touch (+/- 2-3 months time).
  12. All burglar proofing obstructing access to patio doors or windows, etc. needs to be removed by the client. Fast Glass can facilitate the removal and refit at an extra charge. In the event that we can work around the bars, an extra charge is levied due to time factors.
  13. Re-Puttying is only patch filled where there are loose or flaking sections. Chopping of existing putty may result in existing windows being broken/cracked. This would be as per clause 1 of same document.
  14. Aluminium beading that has been siliconed into position is removed at clients own risk. Silicone acts as an adhesive and beading may bow on removal.
  15. In the case of aluminium frames, where the existing gaskets have perished, we will charge to replace with new gasket, alternatively try to make good on existing by means of silicone fill. Where the replacement shatterprufe cannot fit into existing gaskets/beadings, silicone is used as a substitute.

  17. As per building regulations SABS 0137-2000 code of practice, all doors irrespective of pane size and any frames attached to doors as well as window frames below 500mm from finished floors, must be glazed in safety glass. Only once the property has been glazed in accordance, can the necessary glazing certificate be issued. Said certificate is now a council requirement to have alterations/building work approved.
  18. All toughened safety glass will bear a visible permanent stamp in a corner. Once toughened, no further processing can take place on the glass.
  19. Please note that specific sound reducing glass when installed into pre-existing frames may not produce the desired results. All these installations are done as per clients request and Fast Glass cannot be held responsible should the amount of sound filtered out using laminated products not be what was anticipated. Although using laminated safety glass will reduce sound (by approx. 40%) NO guarantee can be officially given.
  20. All work where extension ladder or scaffolding is required will be at an extra charge.
  21. All table tops or mirrors with the exception of bevelled mirrors and 10mm table tops, will come with an "arissed" polished edge with straight corners. Tips off corners or radius corners are to be specified by client at the time of confirming order.
