Secondary Glazing Windows

Secondary glazing involves installing a secondary window pane on the inside of an existing window. This is typically done for added insulation, noise reduction, or to improve security. Secondary glazing can be applied to various types of windows, including sash windows, casement windows, and bay windows. It is often a more cost-effective and less intrusive alternative to full window replacement, and can be easily removed if desired. The secondary pane is usually made of glass or acrylic and is sealed to the window frame to create an insulating barrier between the two panes. Some secondary glazing systems also offer ventilation options to help control airflow.

Styles and Configurations of Secondary Glazing Windows

Some common styles and configurations include:

Horizontal sliders

These windows slide horizontally, making them easy to open and close.

Vertical sliders

These windows slide vertically, similar to traditional sash windows.

Hinged windows

These windows are attached to a frame and open outward, similar to casement windows.

Fixed windows

These windows do not open and are often used for soundproofing purposes.

Lift-out windows

These windows can be lifted out of their frames for easy cleaning or maintenance.

Combination windows

These windows can be configured to include different styles, such as a fixed window with a hinged section for ventilation.

Curved windows

These windows can be curved to fit unusual or non-standard window shapes.

Benefits of Secondary Glazing Windows

There are several benefits to installing secondary glazing windows in your home, including:

  1. Improved energy efficiency: Secondary glazing windows provide an extra layer of insulation, which helps to reduce heat loss and improve energy efficiency, resulting in lower energy bills.
  2. Reduced noise pollution: Secondary glazing windows can significantly reduce external noise, making your home quieter and more comfortable.
  3. Enhanced security: The additional layer of glass or acrylic provides an extra barrier to intruders, making your home more secure.
  4. Preservation of historic or listed buildings: Secondary glazing windows can be an ideal solution for preserving the original windows in historic or listed buildings, as they can be installed without altering the existing structure or appearance.
  5. Customization: Secondary glazing windows can be designed to match the existing style and aesthetic of your home, providing a seamless and visually appealing upgrade.
  6. Cost-effective: Secondary glazing windows can be a more cost-effective solution than full window replacement, especially in cases where the existing windows are in good condition.
