Noise Reducing Secondary Glazing
Frequently Asked Questions
To what extent will secondary glazing reduce the sound pollution in my home?
Correctly specified and installed, secondary glazing will acoustically outperform all other types of glazing. It is not uncommon to see secondary glazing where double or triple glazing is installed. To achieve up to an 80% acoustic performance Granada advise the specification of acoustic glass and an air cavity no less than 150mm – 200mm glass to glass.
Reports indicate that a passing diesel bus often creates 85dB of noise. Correctly installed, Granada’s secondary glazing can reduce noise levels by 54dB, a reduction of 54dB will reduce the noise level to 31dB which is the equivalent to a whisper.

Will I lose the functionality of my windows?
Granada’s secondary glazing is available in many styles complimenting all window types. 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.
