Frequently Asked Questions

To what extent will secondary glazing reduce the sound pollution in my home?

Correctly specified and installed, secondary glazing will acoustically outperform all other types of glazing. It is not uncommon to see secondary glazing where double or triple glazing is installed. To achieve up to an 80% acoustic performance Granada advise the specification of acoustic glass and an air cavity no less than 150mm – 200mm glass to glass.

Reports indicate that a passing diesel bus often creates 85dB of noise. Correctly installed, Granada’s secondary glazing can reduce noise levels by 54dB, a reduction of 54dB will reduce the noise level to 31dB which is the equivalent to a whisper.

What does the installation process consist of for secondary glazing?

Secondary glazing is installed to the interior side of the room creating little to no mess. Often installations can be completed within 30 minutes to 1 hour. To view the installation of secondary glazing please visit our video library web page: VIDEO LIBRARY

We work closely with over 500 national homeowner/trade customers who will make an appointment to measure and install at your convenience. For the DIY market, Granada can supply secondary glazing as supply only where installations videos and what measurements you need to take can be viewed here.
