Letter to The Editor - Breaking the law with Heritage Glazing?
In response to the statement issued by Steve Rice, GGF Director of Technical Affairs.
It is good that the GGF have come out and responded to my letter regarding the use of low sightline IGU's that basically do not comply with the Construction Product Regulations (CPR) and therefore make it illegal to manufacture and sell these units.
For me the opening statement just about says it all. The GGF has addressed the issue from a technical and GGF policy perspective so that's it then? We have addressed it so it can go back in its box. I hope that isn't the case and that this is only the start of their drive to stop this practice happening.
There is the perception that this is only happening in Scotland, but this is a nationwide problem. Only this week I was in a window manufacturing company in Bradford who buy these illegal units from a company in Wales.…»
