REDUCE ENERGY BILLS WITH SECONDARY GLAZING
Our standard secondary glazing substantially reduces the heat lost through single glazed windows and can be made even more energy efficient by specifying low "E" heat reflective glass and "A" rated sealed units. We also offer three premium solutions, from Standard to Outstanding, for optimal thermal insulation-enabling you to achieve energy neutrality.
EXPERIENCE THE MASSIVE BENEFITS OF SECONDARY GLAZING
Which ever option you choose, the units will :
- SAVE ENERGY
- REDUCE HEATING BILLS
- IMPROVE THE ENERGY RATING OF YOUR HOME
- ADD TO YOUR COMFORT
Official tests show that secondary glazing with energy efficient glass offered 11% more heat insultation than standard double glazing.

Tests were carried out by Chiltern Dynamics in October and November 2012 under laboratory conditions in accordance with BS EN ISO 1014-2 "Laboratory measurement of airborne sound insulation of building elements.Noise reduction is always stated as the combined noise reduction of the primary window plus any secondary glazing. Tests show that, in a typical situation, the noise that you hear without secondary glazing is 400% greater. In other words, from a starting point of 50dB the level of noise that you hear decreased by 20dB, so it is halved (10dB) and then halved again.
By fitting secondary glazing with 6.4mm laminated acoustic glass and a 75mm cavity, the level of noise experience decreased by 75%
The following secondary glazing thermal insulation test was carried out in Switzerland by the Interver Glass Technology specialist glass testing facility for an installation in EIRE:
The existing primary window was traditional timber framed with putty glazed 4mm float glass. The cavity was a typical unsealed 85mm. The secondary window was our standard white finished aluminium secondary glazing unit with hardwood fixing sub frame and channel, glazed with 4mm Pilkington "k" hard coat low "E" glass. Thermal window insulation is always stated as the combined thermal insulation of the primary window plus any secondary glazing:
The combined window thermal insulation U value for this configuration was 1.868 W/m2K. This will be equivalnet to a WER rating scale of B or C. By fitting the secondary glazing with double glazed low E "K" glass we can achieve a WER Rating Scale of A RATED
