Secondary Glazing Windows
Secondary glazing, not to be confused with double glazing, involves the installation of an additional internal glazed window. It offers much improved sound insulation, thermal insulation and enhanced window security performance.
What is it all about?
Secondary glazing involves the installation of an additional internal glazed window. This new, fully independent secondary window frame goes on the inside or room side of the existing or primary window. Fitting secondary double glazing will not therefore impact on the external appearance of your home but it will improve your home comfort, enjoyment and lifestyle.
Secondary glazing offers much improved sound insulation, thermal insulation and enhanced window security performance. Windows can often be a major source of noise intrusion and occasionally the main source.
The key benefits include improved acoustics, like protection from noise pollution caused by neighbours, traffic, aircraft and the 24 hour society. But you will also get better thermal insulation, retaining expensively generated heat within the home, thus saving energy and reducing fuel bills, better draught proofing and much increased security through the addition of a further protective barrier against intruders and blasts.
At a glance guide to the benefits of Secondary Glazing
- Noise insulation
Significant protection against noise pollution from road traffic, aircraft and the
24 hour society. Retains noise in pubs, clubs and concert venues.
- Thermal Insulation
Major improvements in thermal insulation save energy and reduce fuel bills
- Building Security
Security glazing provides an effective barrier against intruders and blast
- Draught Proofing
Improves comfort and reduces the level of airborne dust getting into a building
- Fade protection
Use of laminated glass blocks 99% of harmful UV light which fades fabrics, interior furnishings and artworks
- Adaptable designs
An extensive range of window styles are available in a wide choice of colours. Many can be shaped or curved to allow the sympathetic and unobtrusive treatment of a building
- Minimal disruption
Frames arrive on site fully fabricated and factory glazed. Installation is fast with minimal disruption to the residents or users of the building
What types of building can have Secondary Glazing applied?
Secondary glazed windows can be fitted to both existing and new buildings. The range of their suitability and application is extensive.
They are widely installed in all types of residential, public, commercial, educational and healthcare environments.
In fact, secondary glazing will add acoustic and thermal insulation, plus enhanced security to all types of buildings.
