  1. MATERIALS
5.1 Glass Tolerances. A tolerance of +/- half the thickness of the glass to a maximum of +/- 4mm is required by Square 1 Architectural Solutions Ltd in accordance with industry standards. There are no standards for curved glass.   5.2 Stainless Steel Finishes. Our pricing for balustrade metal is based on a satin finish unless specifically stated within this quotation. Mirror finish stainless steel is available but well incur a longer lead time, increased cost and longer installation which in turn will make the install more expensive.   Stainless steels are selected in applications where their inherent corrosion resistance, strength and aesthetic appeal are required. Square 1 will endeavour to ensure that the correct grade of stainless steel is selected for the appropriate location and application. However, dependent on the service conditions, stainless steel is a steel alloy and will stain and discolour due to surface deposits and so cannot be assumed to be completely stain/rust/corrosion proof and maintenance free.  In order to achieve maximum corrosion resistance and aesthetic appeal, the surface of the stainless steel must be kept clean and cleaning schedules carried out on a regular basis, good performance and long service life will result. Square 1 do offer a 12 months defects warranty after delivery. This warranty does not apply in the circumstances below;
  • Fair wear and tear;
  • Damage accidental or negligence by you or by any third party;
  • If you fail to operate or use the Products in accordance with instructions;
  • Any alteration or repair by you or by a third party.
