Bay Window Collapse

by | Oct 22, 2019 | News, Uncategorized

A great example of building failure , due to U.P.V.C window replacement. the bay was originally supported by heavy box sash window frames.

Once the support from the Timber window frames is removed, the bay starts to drop down on the the non structural plastic windows, once the masonry has dropped , it separates from the main facade of the building and starts to move outwards.

Once the domino effect has started, collapse is inevitable, without remedial stabilisation.

Strucsol Helical wire is the ideal , non visible repair solution to this problem,

If your bay windows have been replaced with non structural U.P.V.C and is showing signs of movement, you need to act quickly to limit potential damage and failure.
