    The safest way would be to erect a small mobile scaffold tower, these are available from most local tool hire places.
    It will obviously push up the price of the job but just add it onto the quotation as 'Scaffold Tower Hire'

    I have found with quotes of late I am getting more of the jobs where correct H&S is followed even if it pushes the price up overall.

    Then once your quote is accepted, get there early one morn and do the job while wobbling about on your ladder before any office staff r about then pocket the scaffold tower money :D

    Ally tower is extremely easy to erect also
    I used to have my tickets to erect that stuff but as far as i know you don't need any paperwork to do it for yourself

    I would go with that unless you can think of another safe way

    I would use a ladder if it wasn't for the bare glass ends

    There must be a way of not using scaffolding

    Glass will be easy to clean off a tower but the gully will be hard

    Can you not use an old brush to brush/wash all the bits to one end of the gulley so you can take it out fron one end with a ladder??
    Just an idea but not sure if it would work..
