Frequently Asked Questions about secondary double glazing

Question - What is Secondary Double Glazing?

Answer - Secondary glazing is another window fitted on the inside of you existing window, our system is aluminium with a timber sub-frame, it is some times called secondary windows.

Question - How do I get a Secondary Double Glazing quotation?

Answer - In order to obtain a quotation we will need widths x heights x style (two panel vertical slider, three panel horizontal slider, hinged unit etc)
You would be well advised to have a good look at the options available and which of those suits your requirements for the final operation of the products.

Question - Will Secondary Double Glazing eliminate draughts?

Answer - Yes, but we recommend that you draught proof the existing window as well

Question - Will Secondary Double Glazing reduce noise?

Answer - Yes, considerably, for extra sound proofing consider a different thickness of glass to the existing glass, different thicknesses cut out different wave lengths giving improved noise reduction.

Also consider laminated glass for improved sound reduction, apart from ordinary laminated glass there is now a new generation of acoustic laminated glasses.

For additional reduction of noise pollution leave a 4" (104mm) cavity, line the reveals with acoustic tiles leaving a 3mm gap between the tiles and the prime window. Once again draught proofing the existing window is vitally important, you would be amazed that people/firms do not carry out this basic requirement

Question - Will Secondary Glazing reduce heat loss?

Answer - Yes, the cavity formed between the prime and secondary windows is an effective thermal insulator, if the cavity is more than 4" (104mm) then you can get thermal currents within it that will decrease the insulation value.
