Secondary glazing involves fitting a fully independent internal window behind the existing primary window.
If you live in a listed or period property, you may be considering secondary glazing. Since double glazing entails having whole units installed, it can ruin the appearance of traditional windows. Secondary glazing meanwhile, since it is considered a reversible change, is recommended by The English Heritage and The Listed Property Owners Club. If a property’s windows have lasted for hundreds of years, it’s natural to wish to preserve these. It’s also important to protect windows with historic value in themselves, such as medieval stained glass.
It is used on many historic buildings, which are often draughty and have poor acoustic performance. This system helps rectify all these factors, as well as improving heat retention. Like double glazing, it also provides significant noise reduction, improves thermal efficiency and provides enhanced security.
