The developer of the Mantra Pandanas building in the Australian city of Darwin, has announced that it will replace every glass panel on the building“s balconies because of a manufacturing fault. It is believed three glass panels have shattered since they were installed in 2008, including one at the beginning of July that sent glass showering onto a car parked 10 floors below. Developer of the building, Gwelo, says investigations have shown that the glass panels, which are manufactured interstate and overseas, may have been weakened due to a fault in the manufacturing process. Bernie O“Connell of Gwelo said that protections will be installed by Monday 12 July to protect pedestrians and cars on the Litchfield Street side of the building. He says the replacement of all glass panels should start in a month and the cost will by covered by the manufacturer. The new panels will include an extra strengthening treatment known as “heat soaking”.
