Unlike single glazed windows, secondary glazing is extremely difficult to open from the outside and provides an additional physical barrier against forced entry.

Windows are often seen as the weak point in building security. Secondary glazing offers an affordable, discreet, highly effective solution to help counter this problem.

For homes, the benefits are clear. Unlike single windows, secondary glazing is extremely difficult to open from the outside and provides an additional physical barrier against forced entry.

Should attempts be made to attack the secondary glazing, the outer glazing can act as a vibration sensitive alarm, thus offering a warning before an attempt to breach the secondary glazing is made.

 

Frames are made from tough aluminium and securely fixed to resist forcing. The use of cutting tools are deterred through a sophisticated combination of glass, resin and polycarbonate, whilst the risk from the tampering of locks and catches, or removal of the glass or glazed panels, is also negated.

For commercial properties, vulnerable windows that are easily accessible are prime candidates for secondary glazing. Protection is also recommended against industrial vandalism or theft of artistic or commercial items of value.

Organisations involved in religious, medical or education practices, or those in sensitive areas of research and development, also benefit greatly from the added levels of security.
