What is Secondary Glazing?
Secondary glazing is the process through which a discreet, internal window is fitted to an existing single or double-glazed window to enhance performance. It’s seen as a desirable alternative to double glazing – especially for heritage properties – as it allows you to maintain the external character of the structure whilst taking advantage of the benefits created by double glazing.
When you take advantage of secondary double glazing, you enjoy all the benefits that come with an extra layer of insulation over your windows. This cuts down on heat transfer, which means that your home/property stays warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. But it also insulates against sound and enhances the security of your property.
