UKAS approved testing laboratory

LFT is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory for site water testing. We undertake Hose and Spray Bar tests to CWCT, NHBC and AAMA standards and provide UKAS accredited test certificates. Hose Testing is designed to check the integrity of seals to ensure water-tightness hasn’t been compromised during construction and/or assembly of sealed units. Spray Bar Testing uses a flow and pressure controlled system to simulate natural rainfall, creating an accurate weather test for cladding and glazing systems.

Spray Bar Test

For opening vents, doors and windows. With 2m and 4m long spray bars, LFT can test both large and small areas.

Glass polishing

Glass polishing removes scratches, scuffs and pitting from glass. The damaged area is firstly refined using an abrasive pad, then completed with a compound to leave an "as new" finish to the surface.

Our technicians can repair all types of glass – flat, curved, plate and toughened. With our background in installation and maintenance we’re able to remove capping, beads and gaskets where required, to access glass edges and ensure a perfect finish. All our technicians are IPAF and IRATA trained to help meet the demands of site access.

LFT's focus on safety means all technicians are fit tested for dust masks. Our ongoing commitment to the protection of our clients' assets means that we’ll always bring dust-sheets and overshoes to site. We can also offer extra protection, with corex and self-adhesive floor protection, where required. Our staff will always leave the workplace clean and tidy, cleaning any surrounding glass and panels in the work area following the completion of a project.
