New Low-Sightline Unit Controversy

New Low-Sightline Unit Controversy

A Scottish window fabricator is calling for an official inquiry after non-compliant glass units were installed on a high-profile Edinburgh refurbishment project.

Managing director of Blairs Windows Alex Gray said there had been clear evidence of a regulatory breach, “which needs to be investigated”.

Scottish national daily, The Herald, reported that non-compliant IGUs were recently used on an Edinburgh refurbishment project, and are at risk of failing. Glass Times understands that the low sightline units were insisted on by local planners, yet did not meet CPR requirements.

The project – converting an old school into expensive flats – was undertaken by Cala Homes, which said it worked with Edinburgh Council and Historic Scotland to restore the original sash and casement windows, while “abiding by all statutory approvals”.
