Secondary glazing is an an architectural aluminium secondary glazing system anchored into a timber subframe for maximum sound insulation and should not be confused with upvc.
Secondary glazing involves the installation of new, fully independent secondary window frames on the room side of the existing or primary window.
The key benefits offered by secondary windows include improved acoustic insulation protection against noise pollution from road traffic, aircraft and the 24 hour society. Secondary glazing systems also improve thermal insulation, saving energy and reducing fuel bills; increased window security by providing a protective barrier against intruders and blasts.
Secondary glazing systems are widely used within offices, homes, hotels, museums, education and healthcare premises laboratories and clean rooms as well as public buildings. They are also uniquely suitable for listed and heritage buildings.
