Secondary Glazing involves adding another slim-line window in front of your existing windows. These frames are made from strong, slim, lightweight aluminium. This means it is a discreet, cost-effective method of insulating & sound proofing your windows.

Secondary Glazing you could save around 10% on your heating bills.
Whether you are looking for a solution in a period property or modern offices, one window in your house or multiple windows in a hotel, there are many benefits of secondary glazing for property owners.
Secondary glazing can be fitted to single or double-glazed units and provides all the benefits of double glazing without any of the added hassle. Unlike double glazing, there is no need to remove the existing window. The benefits are clear when compared to single glazing. Often found on period properties where replacements are problematic, single glazing is fragile and thin, shattering easily and allowing heat to escape.
Whether you live on a busy road, near an industrial estate or school – there’s always some kind of unwanted noise from outside. The second pane of glass and air gap act as an extra sound insulation barrier. By increasing the gap slightly, you can even improve the level of sound insulation on offer. This is perfect for older properties where the windows can’t be replaced, but you still need to reduce the excess noise entering your home.
Helping eliminate condensation
Condensation forms when moisture is drawn to the cold surface on the inside of your windows. It’s a common problem on the inside of single-glazed windows because of their cold interior surface. However, it can also be a frustrating issue for poorly sealed double-glazed windows when the condensation forms between the two panes of glass leaving an unsightly mist.
Secondary glazing can help stop condensation in its tracks. The internal seal stops moisture getting through and stops the glass from getting too cold in the first place.
Secondary glazing is environmentally friendly as you simply add another pane, making no need to remove the existing windows and dispose of any fittings, glass or panes.
Many different uses for buildings
Secondary glazing panels can be tailored to suit any type of home, including properties that already have double glazing. It is popular in period homes as owners are often not allowed to replace windows or must apply for planning permission to make external changes to windows and the structure.
However, as secondary glazing is an internal, removable feature, you don’t have to worry about any restrictions. There’s no need to remove any existing, traditional window frames and the discreet secondary panel is barely noticeable. Thankfully, this allows you to retain the beauty, character, and charm of your property.
