Glass Solutions can help you with installing secondary glazing if cold or noise is a problem at your property in Yorkshire. We specialise in the design and installation of aluminium secondary glazing. This involves fitting a discreet, internal window to an existing window.
This helps to maintain the external character of your property and is seen to be a desirable alternative, exceeding the benefits of having double glazing, especially in heritage properties. Secondary Glazing gives an extra layer of insulation over your windows and cuts down on heat transfer, helping your home stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. As well as being extremely discrete, secondary glazing also insulates against sound and enhances the security of your property.
Windows are made to measure and we offer a wide range of styles and finishes that will blend with your existing window design so get in touch with one of the team who will be able to guide you further. Horizontal sliders are the most popular choice, though we can supply and install vertical sliders, hinged units, fixed and lift-out windows. Our secondary glazing can even be curved in house to form arched units.
When soundproofing is paramount, we recommend using a different glass thickness in your secondary glazing than that of your existing windows, this decrease sound reverberation. An air cavity of 150mm to 200mm and special acoustic glass provides maximum noise reduction often reducing noise levels by up to 80% (54dB).
For maximum thermal performance we specify “low E” glass, which has a special heat reflecting coating to help keep heat within the room. A recommended air cavity of up to 80mm is advised. We’ve helped thousands of homeowners and commercial clients over the past 20 years. We’d like to think that we can help you too.
Secondary glazing exceeds the value of traditional double glazing. In addition to providing outstanding thermal and noise insulation, this style of glazing is also extremely discrete – to the extent that a casual observer would be unlikely to notice its presence at all. Your home will be warm and quiet with secondary double glazing.
We also offer our customers a cheaper option to secondary glazing, so please ask us for details of what glazing options would be best suited for you.
