Roads, railways, airports and even people all contribute to noisy environments in every day life.
Fitting Secondary Glazing to your existing window surrounds can significantly reduce the amount of external noise helping to create a more comfortable living / working environment.
In addition, Secondary Glazing can also vastly reduce the amount of heat lost through draughty windows. This reduction can be further enhanced by fitting energy efficient glass such as Pilkington K Glass™
Scenarios where Secondary Glazing may be used as an alternative to full window replacement include:
Secondary Windows will be manufactured as a factory glazed product. The standard options will come complete with cover strips, catches and hinges where required.
All catches can be supplied non-locking or Allen Key Locking. Black Catches are available on RAL Colours.
Secondary windows will be manufactured as factory glazed product.
Standard features include Cover stripes and all catches or hinges where required.
All catches are white as standard (Black Catches are available on RAL Coloured frames) and can be supplied as non-locking or Allen key locking.
Glass Panels should not exceed 1000mm X 1500mm using 4mm Clear float glass.
If the panel exceeds the maximum size for 4mm float glass it will be necessary to change the glass specification to achieve the panel size you require.
It is usual after installing the Secondary window to fill gaps between the outer frame and the reveal.
Dependant on the size of the gaps and once the plastic screw cover trim has been fitted they can either be covered with D moulds (not supplied) or silicone/caulk sealed using the correct sealant. Acoustic mastic can be sourced from your sealant supplier.
