What is Secondary Glazing & Where Is It Used?

Secondary glazing involves adding an extra slim-line window in addition to your existing windows. It is designed to keep the heat in and the noise out. You could also save around 10% on household bills by fitting our secondary glazing. It is particularly suitable for use in listed buildings and conservation areas. Secondary glazing is perfect for both residential and social housing on main roads – even where double glazed windows are already fitted.

Noise Reduction

Noise from traffic, aircraft and the general noise from inner city areas and main roads can be a real disruption to the quality of your living or working environment. Fitting secondary glazing is a cost effective way to significantly reduce external noise. 4mm glass is very effective at providing noise insulation, but by specifying high speculation glass (6mm+) such as laminated glass or acoustic glass you can further improve on the amount of noise reduction.

Thermal Insulation & Draught Reduction

Our secondary glazing can reduce heat loss in your windows by up to 50%. You can specify ordinary float or toughened glass or for even better thermal performance you can specify Pilkington ‘K’ low e glass. By adding the extra pane of glass in addition to your existing windows heat loss is dramatically reduced.
