What is Secondary Glazing?

Secondary Glazing is the addition of a slim second window to an existing window. It is a discreet and unobtrusive method of insulating and soundproofing windows. It is also a popular solution in areas that have restrictions on the installation of double glazed windows such as listed buildings.

The benefits of Secondary Glazing

Listed buildings

Retain your original style

A great solution for listed buildings or conservation areas, where replacing windows is more difficult. The slim Aluminium frame is unobtrusive and almost invisible from the outside, blending seamlessly into your home to retain the external character of your property.

Eliminate cold draughts

To ensure a perfect fit our Secondary Glazing is made-to-measure, eliminating draughts or rattles from your old elegant windows. The thermally toughened glass acts as a form of double glazing by trapping air between itself and the existing window, providing extra insulation to keep your home warmer and energy bills down.

Safe and quiet

Keep your home safe and quiet

The extremely robust frames on our secondary windows firmly close with two locking points to provide an additional barrier against forced entry. This extra pane of glass has also been tested to reduce noise pollution from outside which is particularly useful if you live near a busy road or an airport.

Guaranteed for peace of mind

Aluminium is so robust it will never rot, rust or flake making it virtually maintenance free. Secondary glazing is also our first ever product, when we started way back in 1965, which means we've been manufacturing it longer than any of our competitors.
