For those who live in listed buildings or conservation areas, secondary glazing could be the best or only option for upgrading nonperforming old windows. Some homes cannot have their original windows altered due to building regulations to retain the original appearance, or you may not want to get new windows installed so you don’t spoil the heritage style. However, this doesn’t mean you have to put up with a draughty house once winter arrives. Just because you don’t want to adjust the exterior of your home, it doesn’t mean you have to be without the benefits of double glazing. That’s why our secondary glazing is the perfect solution for the best of both worlds.
Secondary glazing simply involves having a single glass pane fitted over your existing windows with a 100mm gap. This gap between the windows will reduce heat loss by up to 70%, for a thermally insulating solution. Our secondary glazing is made bespoke to you, meaning you’ll have the perfect fit whatever your window. Upgrading to secondary glazed units allows you to enjoy a warmer home without compromising on the style of your original windows.
The stylish and slimline glazing profiles are available in over 200 colours so we can design your secondary glazing film to seamlessly blend with your home. We also offer a range of openings including vertical and horizontal sliders, tilt opening, lift out and hinged. It provides a cost-effective solution to enhance the insulation of your home as well as helping you to save money on your energy bills. The thicker the glass, the further enhanced this is, which is why we offer various glass thicknesses to suit individual requirements.Get a price
As secondary double glazing only requires an additional pane of glass to be installed, rather than a whole window frame and glazing, you’ll be able to maintain the authentic appearance that your current windows provide. That’s why our secondary glazing for listed buildings and conservation areas is an easy solution. It’s an approved for use upgrade in areas of outstanding beauty too as it abides by the building restrictions many period property owners are constrained by.
Able to significantly improve the thermal performance and security of your period property, installing secondary glazing will also add value to your listed home! This makes them an excellent home improvement option that provides a wealth of modern benefits.Get a price
If you own a heritage home and do not have permission to change the existing windows then secondary glazing is the best way to improve your home’s efficiency while still retaining your home’s character. Because it’s also cost-effective as you’re only adding another layer of glass, it is a great way of having a warmer home without compromising on style or budget. With energy bills rising year on year, it makes sense to stop heat escaping at all costs and provide a more comfortable home.
Secondary glazing utilises pioneering techniques, replicating our advanced double-glazing specifications. By adding another glazing panel that’s fabricated from dense materials, the heat inside of your home is kept inside as it can’t escape through the tightly sealed glass. In the same way, the cold outside elements are eliminated from entering the room, so you’ll benefit from a draught-free design. The insulating cavity between the existing window and the extra layer of glass acts as an important retention of energy. Upgrading to secondary glazed units will keep your home at an optimum indoor temperature 365 days of the year.
Tired and older windows are prone to condensation which is a clear sign of poor thermal performances. Therefore, by having secondary glazing panels installed, you’ll notice that issues of condensation are a thing of the past.Get a price
Home security is also improved with a second layer of glass, providing better defence against any unwanted intruders. Single glazed windows or outdated double-glazed windows provide little protection from forced entry and are often targeted by burglars as they are easier to break into. The glass can also be picked with little force. So, upgrading your windows with durable and tightly fitted secondary glazing means your home will be less vulnerable as it adds sturdiness and robustness that won’t succumb to harsh forces. Improve your peace of mind with secondary glazed windows to ensure that your period property is safe and secure.Get a price
For those who live near busy roads or in noisy areas then secondary glazing is extremely effective at noise reduction. The added slimline glass pane provides an additional barrier that stops loud noises from entering the room. After you’ve had secondary glazing installed, you’ll notice that your home is much more peaceful, providing a relaxing environment to work, relax and sleep.Get a price
