“Thank you for your enquiry regarding glass audit. which allows for certification of glass against AS1288-2006 Glass in Buildings

  • Where the glass is outside of the scope of AS1288-2006 (very rare) and engineering is required we will provide you with relevant contacts

Please let us know if you require certification on following (as this may increase the cost)

  • Roof glazing (skylights etc.)
  • Any glass with difficult access to it- eg. Extension ladders, scaffolds etc.
  • If the building is more than 3 storey’s high
  • Certification of pool fencing, shed or any other structures on the property other than house itself

The process with Glass Now is as follows

  1. We arrange a mutually suitable time for us to attended
  2. During our visit- please allow at least 2-3 hours for measure to be completed
    1. – collect a deposit – this is non-refundable
    2. – measure each glass pane and check it’s thickness and properties (eg. Thickness, films, tint , toughened, laminated etc.)
  3. Paperwork is then forwarded to the office where each pane of glass is checked against the safety standard
  4. We will then contact you to advise if there are any panes of glass that do not comply
  5. In case you require replacement we provide a quotation for replacement with a compliant piece of glass
    1. If you choose to accept this we replace the glass and give you the certification at the time of repair- provided that repairs and the remainder of the certification cost has been paid for.
    2. If you choose not to accept the quote we will provide certification for compliant panels only and collect remainder of the certification cost.

Our certification comes a s a “Form 16- Inspection Certificate”  that is accompanied with a spreadsheet of all items certified.
