An insert panel is attached to the existing pane and can be fixed permanently into position on a window or door then it is trimmed and sealed all around the edges.
Available in several different styles and single or double glazed aluminium profiles, fixed secondary glazing has a number of configurations to choose from. It is fitted in a way that is easy to maintain and clean, with exceptional functionality and performance.
Note: Neither of these types of secondary glazing units is suitable for fire escape applications.
