What is Secondary Glazing?

Secondary double glazing features installing a slimline window onto the inside of your existing windows. This process has been designed to enhance security levels and increase acoustic and thermal insulation within your home. At Granada Glazing, we install secondary window glazing to homes across the UK.

Secondary glazing is ideal for listed buildings, heritage homes and conservation areas. Each window is made to measure and can be customised to match the style, function and colour of your primary windows. With this, you will be able to keep the beautiful authentic aesthetic of your home. We also install our secondary double glazing to new properties to enhance single, double and triple glazing.

When you take advantage of secondary double glazing, you enjoy all the benefits that come with an extra layer of insulation over your windows. This cuts down on heat transfer, which means that your home retains more heat, leading to reduced energy consumption and costs.

If you live in a noisy area, Granada’s range of bespoke aluminium secondary glazing will help. After installation, most homeowners notice up to 80% reduced noise pollution, allowing secondary glazing to create a peaceful, warm and secure UK home.

Secondary Glazing FAQs

What Is Secondary Glazing?

Secondary glazing is a discreet window that is installed in addition to your existing windows. It is installed to the internal side of your property. Available in different styles to suit all window types, secondary double glazing improved noise insulation and thermal efficiency. No other form of glazing can reduce noise levels by up to 80% (which is the equivalent of 54 dB). As it doesn’t change the fabric of the building, secondary glazing can be installed to homes in conservation areas as well as grade I and II listed buildings. Keep the same traditional charm of your original windows with added modern performance benefits. All of Granada Glazing’s products are manufactured from durable aluminium and can be powder coated in over 200 RAL colours. Thanks to the aluminium frame, secondary glazing also offered increased security levels. If your primary windows are forced open, secondary glazing acts as a second barrier as it can’t be opened from the outside. This makes them ideal when used in conjunction with single, double or triple glazed uPVC or timber windows.

What Are The Types Of Secondary Glazing?

There are six main types of secondary glazing! Our expert team will help you decide which style is best suited to your windows. Lift Out Units - Used when the primary window is fixed, or when the primary window is required to open for ventilation. Hinged Units - These units are used with casement or hinged primary windows. Vertical Sliders - The perfect addition to vertical sliding sash windows. The meeting rails align with the primary window meeting rail. Horizontal Sliders - Used in conjunction with casement or sash primary windows. That requires full access and where the casement window has sufficient space internally to open the secondary glazing. Bespoke - Ideal for more traditional properties, secondary glazing can be installed to unique primary windows. Fixed - Used for an independent window that is fitted internally.

How Effective Is Secondary Glazing?

Secondary Glazing can be a very effective way of enhancing thermal efficiency, security, and noise reduction in your home! The second window acts as a barrier between your UK property and the outside world. Experience a home that is 80% quieter and 65% warmer all year round.

How Does Secondary Glazing Work?

When installed, secondary glazed windows sit inside the same window frame as your existing window. This acts as a second barrier between your home and the outside helping to improve your homes thermal efficiency, security and reduce noise pollution. This makes it the perfect solution for homes that do not want to completely replace their windows but are looking to make them more efficient.

Which Glass Type Should I Choose?

Secondary glazing is usually specified to combat two main issues; acoustic or thermal performance. In conjunction with the air cavity, the type of glass specified plays a vital role in rectifying your problem. As standard, all of our products are manufactured with 4mm toughened glass for enhanced security and safety. Please be aware that other secondary glazing providers may supply float glass which is brittle and can be easily broken. If broken, it can leave large dangerous shards, often resulting in injury. Here at Granada, we provide several types of glass ranging in thickness to coating. Each type of glass has specifically been designed and selected to offer optimum performance. Selecting the correct glass and installing the secondary glazed unit with an air cavity of 150mm to 200mm, can drastically reduce noise issues by up to 80% (54 dB). Most traffic noise problems can be rectified with the installation of either 6.4mm or 6.8mm clear acoustic glass. Where noise is a real nuisance, and loud, we suggest the specification of 8.8mm clear acoustic glass. Cold draughts breaching your primary windows can make a room feel uncomfortable and makes it uneconomical as the loss of heat will result in higher energy costs. Where thermal performance is required, we advise the installation of either 4mm, 6mm or 8.8mm clear laminate low E glass. Low E glass has a specially designed coating that reflects heat waves into the room, thus keeping your it warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. The type of glass specified can increase or decrease your quoted price. It is best practice to speak with us directly as you may over-specify the glass type. We can provide a tailored solution to rectify your issue, which is both cost-efficient and practical for your specific needs.

What Is The Installation Process For Secondary Glazing?

Secondary glazing is installed to the interior side of the room creating little to no mess. We can often complete installations within 1 hour. We work closely with over 500 national trade installers who will make an appointment to measure and install at your convenience.

What Materials Are Used For The Frames?

As market leaders within the glazing industry, it is essential that our secondary glazing is high performing and aesthetically pleasing. The key to our approach is to use the best raw materials available and manufacture to the highest standard possible. All of our frames are manufactured in house from slimline, durable aluminium. We cut, powder coat, arch and fabricate our aluminium frames in-house under one roof. Utilising high tech machinery such as CNC machines, we can ensure all frames are built to size as sealed units. Our knowledge, expertise and skills in manufacturing ensure high quality and the best performing product. Our competitors have tried to reduce the amount of aluminium within the frames to reduce the cost of raw materials, but we found this has a negative effect on product quality. Granada’s head office holds a team of product developers where they can often be found designing and manufacturing glazing products using new materials and manufacturing techniques. All of our products are quality tested before they leave our facility, ensuring a high level of quality and function.

Will I Lose the Functionality Of My Windows?

Granada’s glazing is available in many styles complimenting all window types. This way, you will still be able to use your original windows all year round. We have a range of windows that slide horizontally and vertically for easy access and cleaning. Our hinged unit operates on a hinge mechanism that can be placed on the side of the window for conventional opening or on the top or bottom dependent upon your requirements. Other window styles include fixed windows or lift outs which can easily be lifted out of the frame.

What Are The Advantages Of Secondary Glazing?

There are many benefits to secondary glazing! This type of glazing offers the most effective sound insulation, reducing noise levels by up to 80%. Secondary glazing also improves heat insulation and reduces heat loss through the window by around 65%. Secondary window glazing is an excellent value for money.
