We offer remedial and maintenance works to replace lenses/glass blocks. Repair and reseal pavement lights, smoke outlet panels, floor lights and roof lights, fire escape hatches and cellar flaps. We also offer a regular servicing programme for our fire escape hatches.
Damaged or cracked glass blocks or lens units can be removed and individually replaced. It is recommended that our skilled operatives carry out this work. Please refer to our technical advisory department. Luxcrete repair and reseal pavement lights, smoke outlet panels, floor lights and roof lights. Mastic perimeter sealants or asphalt can be replaced if the adjacent finishes are removed or disturbed in any way.
Fire escape hatches and cellar flaps- Repairs to the complete hatch assembly must only be undertaken by trained Luxcrete personnel, please contact our technical department.
We also offer a regular servicing programme for our fire escape hatches. The performance of the hatch will be impaired if routine cleaning is not undertaken or if the paint finish of the metal frame components deteriorates causing corrosion of operable parts of the assembly; in extreme circumstances the leaf may fail to open in an emergency.
Our method of resealing the Pavement Lights and Smoke Outlet panels involves removing the margin / cutting back the paving to the perimeter, digging down to the bearings, removing the infill, cleaning and torching dry before priming and sealing at the base with a hot pored bitumen before topping with a grade C40 concrete.
The panels can be resealed using a hot poured bitumen, a brush applied liquid membrane or aqueous bitumen. We are currently testing other bitumous and cementitous products.This is then infilled to match the surrounding finishes.

This would involve removing all debris which has accumulated in the frame gutter channel. Wire brushing clean the gutter channel prior to painting with a coat of galvafroid paint. Removing cleaning and greasing of pivot bars and lock mechanism. Functional testing of the hatch to include opening / closing operation, gas struts, if fitted, and lock mechanisms to ensure it is left in good working order.
