UKAS approved testing laboratory
LFT is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory for site water testing. We undertake Hose and Spray Bar tests to CWCT, NHBC and AAMA standards and provide UKAS accredited certification. Hose Testing is designed to check the integrity of seals to ensure water-tightness hasn’t been compromised during construction and/or assembly of sealed units. Spray Bar Testing uses a flow and pressure controlled system to simulate natural rainfall, creating an accurate weather test for cladding and glazing systems.
Hose Testing to closed jointed systems. With over 100m of industrial hose and IPAF, IRATA and PASMA trained staff, LFT covers all areas of water testing, using fully calibrated equipment to ensure accurate results.
Spray Bar Test
For opening vents, doors and windows. With 2m and 4m long spray bars, LFT can test both large and small areas.
Glass polishing removes scratches, scuffs and pitting from glass. The damaged area is firstly refined using an abrasive pad, then completed with a compound to leave an "as new" finish to the surface.
Our technicians can repair all types of glass – flat, curved, plate and toughened. With our background in installation and maintenance we’re able to remove capping, beads and gaskets where required, to access glass edges and ensure a perfect finish. All our technicians are IPAF and IRATA trained to help meet the demands of site access.
LFT's focus on safety means all technicians are fit tested for dust masks. Our ongoing commitment to the protection of our clients' assets means that we’ll always bring dust-sheets and overshoes to site. We can also offer extra protection, with corex and self-adhesive floor protection, where required. Our staff will always leave the workplace clean and tidy, cleaning any surrounding glass and panels in the work area following the completion of a project.
Construction site accidents happen and when glass gets damaged it can be expensive and time consuming to resolve. LFT can remove scratches and other forms of glass damage quickly and cost effectively.
Shop fronts are prone to vandalism and damage – LFT can quickly and cost effectively return glass to a like new finish.
Rope access – high level solutions
LFT’s team of IRATA trained abseilers make maintenance, cleaning and repairs easier, completing almost all tasks from ropes. This saves our clients both time and money, by removing the need for expensive scaffolding or access equipment.

MY NAME IS PETER
I started apprenticing for my dad, Peter Sweeney, Jr. when I was twelve, but even before that I was watching him work all the time. My grandpa established our company in 1918, back when we specialized in carpentry and woodwork. Dad picked up new trades and expanded our business. I’ve been servicing the greater Wichita area for over 15 years and am about to bring my oldest son in as an assistant.
