You need to be reasonably strong to turn doors over on the trestle.

You will receive training, but it is a job that improves with experience. You need to enjoy developing your practical skills and have experience using hand tools and machinery. You also need to have good attention to detail and take pride in your work.

The function of the glazing operator is to undertake the following:

  • To look at the daily delivery plan to understand what projects will be coming into the glazing department.
  • Projects that need to be glazed that day will be discussed with you to make sure that the required materials are available to allow each door to be glazed.
  • Glazing bead cassettes are normally taken from the spray shop & then where needed correct glazing material is applied.
  • Glass is taken from the glass racks & checked for defects.
  • Glazing beads are applied to one side of the door first. Pinned using a pneumatic nail gun at specified centres and angle to comply with Fire Test evidence.
  • The beads are fitted to one side. The glass is fitted, again paying attention to the glass “kitemark”: its location, glass specification and other technical requirements depending on fire rating requirement.
  • Final bead fitted – same as above.

Other duties include:

Fixing mouldings to doors.

Working with doors where vertical door edge protectors are fitted & protection plates fitted to doors.
