Mountain climbers with glazier training or glaziers with mountain climbing training?

According to our information, it took a very long time (more than 30 minutes) to glaze one pane. Unfortunately it was not possible for us to get the information as to which company did the glazing work. The job was done with one of Pannkoke vacuum lifting devices, the KOMBI 7011-DS.

This type is a very universal device for the construction site, but in this case the worker could have perhaps had an easier time of it if the company had invested in a specially-constructed device. Also, whether or not the application of the device for this type of job meets the requirements concerning normal working safety measures is a question we just cannot answer.

IIn such special cases one should use special constructions. The company Bayer Glasbau GmbH from Berlin, for instance, decided on a specially-constructed device to do their glazing work on a new building at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

Within 8 to 10 minutes, an approximately 4 x 3 m, 800 kg glass pane was set into the frame. So much time saved made the special investment worthwhile.
