Secondary Glazing

What is Secondary Glazing?

If you live in a block of flats or your house is a listed building, you might not be able to easily replace your existing windows. This is where secondary glazing comes in to deliver the perfect solution. 

Secondary glazing consists of a fully independent internal window, designed to exactly match the shape and size of your existing windows. This way you will get the benefits of the latest window-making technologies without compromising the integrity of your home's existing windows. Strong, reliable and long-lasting, secondary glazing allows the aesthetics of period or listed buildings to shine through whilst keeping rooms warm and safe.

What are the benefits of Secondary Window Glazing?

Keep your home quiet with Secondary Window Glazing 
Secondary glazing continues to grow in popularity due to its unique soundproofing features. If your house is near a busy road or in a particularly noisy area, secondary double glazing will turn down the noise and bring the peace and quiet you've always wanted. The tightly sealed frames work hard as an extra barrier reducing noise levels by up to 80%. 

Secondary Glazing Helps Enhance Home Security
Secondary glazing provides an additional physical barrier against forced entry. Frames are made from tough aluminium and securely fixed to resist forcing. The use of cutting tools are deterred through a sophisticated combination of glass, resin and polycarbonate, whilst the risk from the tampering of locks and catches, or removal of the glass or glazed panels, is also negated.

Retain the Original Character of Your Period House
Virtually invisible from the outside, secondary window glazing provides the option of remaining faithful to the integrity of the original period style home while benefitting from the warmth, quiet and enhanced security of modern window systems.

10 Year Guarantee for Your Choice of Secondary Glazing
All products are backed up with a 10 Year Guarantee on frames and glazing and two year warranty on moving parts. Whether you choose secondary window glazing with slim aluminium frames or the heavy-duty aluminium option, you will get the same peace of mind for years to come.

Choose Secondary Glazing for a more comfortable home
With up to 10% of heat literally going out the window, secondary glazing offers the much needed thermal insulation that will help keep your home nice and cosy and the energy bill costs down. Secondary window glazing acts as a reliable warmth barrier by keeping an insulated layer of air in the cavity it shares with the primary window. With the right glass, the results can be a reduction in heat loss by as much as 65%.

Prevent Condensation
Secondary glazing provides an internal seal that allows balanced, low level ventilation within the window cavities. This stops the inner glass from becoming too cold and prevents condensation from forming.

Value for Money
The economic case for secondary window glazing has been proven time and again. Providing a major insulation boost, secondary glazing is effective in stopping heat loss and cutting energy bills. Additional cost-saving is also achieved from not having to replace every primary window frame.

SECONDARY GLAZING SUITABLE FOR MULTIPLE OPENING CONFIGURATIONS

You can get significant noise reduction, improved thermal performance and enhanced security with secondary glazing regardless of your window opening system. Choose from multiple opening configurations such as horizontal or vertical sliding, hinged or fully removable depending on your preference.

1. Acoustic Performance
Secondary Glazing continues to grow in popularity due to its unique soundproofing. It is manufactured on state of the art CNC machinery which ensures a tight sealed frame. The installation of this extra barrier makes it hard for sound waves to pass through, reducing noise levels by up to 80%.

2. Thermal Insulation
Reports show that up to 10% of heat is lost through your windows. As Secondary Glazing is often fitted with a 150mm-200mm cavity from the primary window, the air filled cavity acts as an insulator. The creation of an insulating layer of air is as important to the retention of energy as the fitment and seals. With the right glass, the result can be a reduction in heat loss by as much as 65 percent.

3. Value for Money
The economic case for Secondary Glazing has been proven time and again- providing a major insulation boost; stopping heat loss and cutting energy bills. Additional cost-saving is achieved from not having to replace every primary window frame.

6. Retain Character
For those that own period properties, secondary Glazing provides the option of remaining faithful to the integrity of the original building, whilst benefiting from the warmth, quiet and enhanced security of modern window systems.
