Survey and installation
Our expert surveyors and fitters will happily measure and install your glass panels for you, if you would prefer. This is often the safest option if you have an irregularly shaped wall space or require holes and cut-outs in your glass (for instance, for sockets or light switches). Our employees are skilled and experienced, will measure accurately and have your glass cut to size, ensuring a perfect fit and seamless installation. Once the order is placed, we will call you to arrange a suitable date and time for measurements to be taken – usually, surveys are undertaken within 48 hours, or they can be booked in advance to coordinate with your kitchen fit. In this case, we will contact you as the time approaches to confirm the final date, and will of course rearrange if your kitchen has been delayed.
Please note: measuring can only take place after other fixtures and fittings have been installed, including worktops and electrics.
One of the most pleasing aspects of made-to-measure glass panels is the sleek and streamlined appearance it gives to a space – having your glass cut to size ensures a perfect fit, with no awkwardly shaped bits of tile or truncated pattern to spoil the overall effect. However, achieving this result does require accurate measuring, including the dimensions and placement of any holes and cut-outs needed to accommodate switches, sockets, or utensil racks, and the shaping of glass to allow for cooker hoods or other fixtures and fittings.
The same is true for fitting – small panels of glass are relatively easy to install and can often be put into place by a homeowner or builder. However, for more complicated installations, involving irregularly shaped glass or a large number of panels, we would again recommend using our experienced fitters to ensure a smooth, safe installation and a perfect result.
