Being a large maintenance company in the social housing sector we had a variety of issues when It came to window repairs/maintenance. Chief among these were obviously cost and safety. I contacted Daniel(Glazesafe) after seeing the website and ended up purchasing five sets of side and top hung tools. It was obvious very quickly that these new tools were having a very positive impact on efficiency with operatives now able to carryout more repairs single handedly and without the need for a second person. Jobs were also being completed more quickly which resulted in us increasing the workload for our staff. With feedback obtained during toolbox talks etc. it was also apparent that operatives felt far safer carrying out repairs with these tools, even preferring them over two man jobs. We have now ordered another 10 sets of the sashmates and Daniel has been to our site to carry out some training for the rest of our operatives. We have now revised our method statements to include their use and are in the process of rolling them out across all of our sites. We are taking steps to expand to a national level and have full confidence that we will use the Sashmate tools in our new business.
