Secondary Glazing in Wirral & Liverpool
Secondary glazing is particularly useful for listed buildings where local building regulations prevent the installation of u.P.V.C. or aluminium frames or indeed where the client prefers to retain the period architecture in their home. The windows can play a significant contribution to the image of the property and planning permission for double glazing will often be rejected.
Secondary glazing can be used where other types of double glazing may not be suitable or desirable. Secondary glazing can considerably reduce the amount of external noise to create a more comfortable living or working environment. Heat loss through existing windows will also be hugely reduced when secondary glazing is fitted.
Our secondary glazing has been specifically developed to suit almost any application and there are a comprehensive range of styles, including fixed and lift out panels, hinged panels and vertical and horizontal sliders.
Our secondary glazing panels are manufactured in aluminium and the standard colours are white or brown, although they are available in other colours to suit your colour scheme, if required.
How does it work?
A second window frame is fitted to the interior area of a window space. The result is a space between the two windows, which allows the original window frames to exist, whilst still providing many of the benefits that can be obtained with modern double glazing. These secondary windows can be opened and closed easily to provide access to the external window to let ventilation into the house.
The benefits of secondary glazing include:
- Significantly cheaper than double glazing
- Cuts heat loss compared to single glazed windows on their own
- Protection from noise
- Does not require planning permission, even on listed buildings
- Preserves appearance of period properties
