Are your guests complaining about the sound of traffic keeping them up at night? Are you spending too much on keeping your rooms warm? Let our Secondary Glazing help you.
Granada Glazing’s secondary glazing is the best way to discreetly cut out noise and heat efficiency of your hotel room. This durable and functional fitting adds to your rooms’ performance while maintaining the good looks and keeping costs down.
For any hotel owner, the two main concerns are keeping the rooms insulated against the heat and the cold, and making sure that guests aren’t disturbed by outside noise. As our roads get busier and noisier, traffic sounds are going to become unavoidable.
However, you can’t allow them to disturb your guests, or it will adversely affect your business.
Similarly, heat efficiency is instrumental in keeping your heating as well as air conditioning costs manageable.
If your windows leach out the heat in winter and the air conditioning in summer, then your guests will spend more electricity in maintaining a comfortable temperature.
The answer to your problems is secondary glazing, which can bring down the acoustic disturbance by 80% and improve thermal efficiency by up to 65%.
What’s more, the sturdy aluminium secondary glazing is available in over 200 RAL colours. You can decorate your rooms in whatever manner you want.
If your property is in a conservation area or listed Grade I or II, discuss your options with us, or find out more about it here.

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.
What does the installation process consist of for secondary glazing?
Secondary glazing is installed to the interior side of the room creating little to no mess. Often installations can be completed within 30 minutes to 1 hour. To view the installation of secondary glazing please visit our video library web page: VIDEO LIBRARY
