Fixed Secondary Glazing
What is Fixed Secondary Glazing?
Fixed secondary glazing is an independent window that is fitted on the interior side of the existing window. The purpose is to provide significant noise reduction, improved thermal performance and enhanced security. 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.
Why Add Fixed Secondary Glazing to my Home?
By adding fixed secondary glazing to your home, you’re investing in a simple and stylish solution that adds a slim-line window in a discreet and elegant manner. The external appearance of your home is not affected by installing fixed secondary glazing making it a subtle upgrade. The lightweight and durable nature of our fixed secondary glazing is virtually maintenance free, without you needing to spend time or money on their upkeep.
It’s a popular home improvement project to undertake as it suits any property type and heightens the security of your home. Security is a priority for the majority of homeowners in the UK and our fixed secondary glazing can assist in deterring potential intruders and make it more difficult to break-in.
Fixed secondary glazing is designed to insulate your home and reduce external noise. Available in single or double glazed options you have the option to select any RAL colour you need to have them complement the aesthetic of your home. Whether you want a subtle shade to blend in with your current surroundings or you’d like a colour that will make a statement and stand out, the possibilities are endless.
Secondary glazing is suitable for both residential and commercial buildings. If you’re unable to alter or replace the primary windows because it’s not possible or cost-effective, our secondary glazing system is the ideal solution. Listed buildings, properties within a conservation area and heritage homes may well benefit from our fixed secondary glazing that leaves the existing windows intact whilst modernising the windows and bringing excellent benefits.
Fixed secondary glazing works hard to minimise the build-up of condensation which can lead to mould or mildew issues over time. You can be confident that your home will no longer suffer with draughts and you’ll be able to maintain a warm and comfortable temperature all year round. The waterproof sealing will make sure your home is always dry and ensures that your windows can withstand even the most adverse weather conditions.
Fixed secondary glazing is often installed to help insulate the property to improve the thermal efficiency which helps lower energy costs and your carbon footprint. This makes it an eco-friendly choice that can help contribute to a greener environment.
