Glass Well Cover
All our glass is toughened to British Standard, ensuring that you get a quality product that is suitable for use.
Unlike many of our competitors we supply a specialist glass that is manufactured for use as a well cover. It comprises of three separate sheets of toughened glass. This ensures that in the unlikely event that one were to break the other two glass panels would still be held in place.
The glass is delivered by a specialist courier within 14-30 days from the point of order.
Maximum Diameter: 1500mm
A glass well cover is an ideal way to make a feature of your well while making it safer at the same time.
The 25.4mm glass well cover is suitable for use in raised wells that will not be walked on. While the 33mm glass is strong enough to support the weight of a person. Both are made up of multiple layers of glass to ensure your safety.
Unlike many of our competitors, our glass comes with a Ritec coating as standard. This reduces the likelihood that water droplets will gather on the glass well cover.
Condensation is more of a risk in external wells rather than internal. In order to further reduce the risk of condensation forming in the well, ventilated bricks should be used or air vents should be fitted into the brickwork. On an internal well, a minimum of two air bricks are required at the top of the well, with four bricks being recommended.
On an external well a more sophisticated solution may be required. Should you wish to talk through the options when fitting, our team are available on 01782 614 693.
Any lighting used should be LED, in order to reduce heat generated from bulbs. Using LED lighting will again reduce the risk of heat causing condensation to be created within the well.
We can also custom make a frame for your glass well cover. They can be used in both raised and floor level wells. We can manufacture to any colour of your choosing. Our experienced on team are on hand should you need help or advice with regards to the installation. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01782 614 693.
Measuring and Fitting
Measure the diameter of the well at a number of different points. It is very unlikely that the well opening will be a perfectly round. Take note of the maximum span. This is the size that you will need to work with.
If a new floor is being fitted, install the new well glass and frame first. Once this is in place, you can then bring the floor up to the edge of the frame and grout it in place.
