Most homeowners will know about the benefits of double glazing. Improved thermal performance, enhanced aesthetics, and better security are just a few. Triple glazing is also becoming more popular and widely used by UK homeowners. Secondary glazing, however, is often overlooked when it comes to window upgrade projects.

Secondary glazing – the perfect solution for period property upgrades

Secondary glazing
If you live in a conservation area or a property where planning restrictions are in place, secondary glazing is a great way to improve your home’s performance levels. As secondary glazing is classed as a temporary installation, it means that installing it won’t affect your existing windows. Therefore, it can be used in a wide range of heritage properties and areas of particular historical significance.

Secondary glazing is installed onto the inside of a property’s window frames. A single glazed window frame is added to the existing window to create a double or even triple glazed effect depending on the existing window type. It can be used as a permanent improvement or a temporary measure to improve performance and has zero impact on the fabric of the building or the property’s exterior appearance.

As mentioned above, secondary glazing is an excellent choice for improving the performance of old inefficient windows on period properties where glazing replacement would be restricted. Secondary glazing, however, is not just for conservation areas and heritage homes. It can help to improve the performance of any poorly performing windows and will provide the following benefits:

  • Vastly improved acoustic insulation for a quieter home interior
  • An additional layer of home security protection
  • Improved thermal insulation for a warmer more efficient home
  • Compatibility with all window styles and materials

Our secondary glazing can also be specified in your choice of three different models. Choose from a slimline hinged unit, a horizontal sliding unit or a vertical sliding unit. All models provide outstanding levels of performance and can reduce noise transmission by up to 80% and reduce heat loss by up to 65%.
