Secondary Glazing Sash Windows for Heritage and Modern Properties
Secondary glazing sash windows are the perfect, thermally efficient, solution for owners of heritage homes. This is a vertical sliding secondary glazing that fits on the inside of a vertical sliding sash window to help improve its heat performance.
Listed properties often find that they are unable to replace their sash windows with modern double glazing. This is because it can affect the traditional outer appearance of these buildings. Secondary glazing sash windows on the other hand, sit discreetly on the inside. They function in the same way as double glazing but without impacting the façade.
In addition to this, our modern secondary glazing sash windows offer a number of great benefits when installed to a modern home. As a result, they aren’t just perfect for heritage properties but also modern buildings that want that vintage look which only sash windows can provide. Enhance your property both visually and thermally.

Easy Usability with Secondary Glazing Sash Windows
Secondary glazing sash windows are designed especially for vertically sliding windows where regular hinged panels aren't suitable. In fact, these are specifically modelled along the same lines. There are two secondary sashes, one above the other, securely retained in their outer frame.
The vertically sliding secondary glazing is supported by robust spring balances. What these do is provide ease in opening and closing.
In addition, the spiral balance system supports the weight of the secondary sashes. As a result, these secondary glazing sash windows are quite suitable for larger sash windows as well.
Another excellent feature vertical sliding secondary glazing offers you is the tilt-in facility. This feature allows each secondary sash to be independently released from the outer frame. It can then be pivoted inwards through almost 180°. As a result, you will find it as easy to clean the outside of the glass as it is to clean the inside.
Additionally, the sightlines of secondary glazing sash windows are designed to match traditional sash windows. The sashes are also easily moved up and down with the weights supported by the balance system.

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.

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.
