Secondary glazing is not as eye-catching as many of our products. Of course, that’s part of the point of it – it’s meant to be unobtrusive and can be very effective at keeping homes warmer, quieter and more secure. We have put together a list of the benefits of secondary glazing to help you make the right choice for your home.
The Benefits of secondary glazing
1. Comprehensive and bespoke
It includes both hinged and sliding window design and comes in a choice of brown or white, so suitable for all styles and properties. Like all Everest products, it’s made-to-measure for a perfect fit.
2. More warmth
The air gap between the primary and secondary windows provides excellent thermal retention and can help to reduce noise, while double weather seals can help reduce draughts.
3. Extra security
Sliding secondary windows are fitted with sprung catch locks that fasten automatically as the window is closed. Hinged secondary windows are fitted with lockable handles and security bolts. There’s also the option of 6.4mm laminated glass to provide additional security and sound insulation.
4. Low maintenance
The timber subframe is covered with uPVC trim so no need for painting. All panels can be removed from the frame for easy cleaning. Check out our windows care guide to keep your windows looking as good as new.
5. Minimal disruption
Thanks to our experience, precise measuring and trained fitters, it’s quick and easy to install. How long will it take?
Hardly visible from the outside, it enables customers to keep the traditional look and feel of their heritage windows with added warmth and security.
