Secondary Glazing Benefits
65% Thermal Insulation
Secondary Glazing substantially improves the thermal insulation of existing windows and can help reduce energy costs.
80% Noise Reduction
Secondary Glazing offers the most effective sound insulation and can decrease noise levels by as much as 54dB.
Secondary windows offer an affordable, discreet, highly effective solution to enhancing building security.
Secondary Glazing designed for listed properties:
Many listed properties are prohibited from changing their windows as altering the windows will change the fabric of the building. The installation of secondary glazing is discreet and unobtrusive, it can be installed within your existing window reveal or to the face of your primary windows. As the installation is discreet and does not alter the existing fabric of the building, it is approved to be installed within conservation areas, Grade I and Grade II listed buildings.
We do advise that you speak to your local authority or conservation officer before installing secondary glazing, to aid with this process we can supply detailed drawings of the planned installation and case studies where secondary glazing has been successfully installed.
Secondary Double Glazing is a proven way to add acoustic and thermal insulation to your home where our range of slimline profiles won’t detract from the character and charm of your home. Our products are designed to work in conjunction with all window styles, including traditional timber box sash, casement and fixed windows. Arctic Glaze will help you specify the correct product and glass configuration, which will deliver optimum performance while looking as discreet as possible.
Soundproof Secondary Glazing
Many homes suffer from excessive noise issues where a common problem is your existing primary windows. A bus can emit as much as 85 decibels from a 5-meter distance, most modern windows including double and triple glazing can only reduce noise entering your home by up to 36 decibels, this creates a substantial amount of noise entering your home.
The solution to substantially reduce noise entering your home is our range of bespoke aluminium secondary glazing. The combination of your primary windows and secondary glazing can reduce noise levels by as much as 80%, which is the equivalent of 54 decibels.
For homes situated next to busy roads or adjacent railway lines we often recommend the installation of 6.4mm acoustic laminated glass. This type of glass is manufactured with a PVB (Polyvinyl butyral) interlayer and is specifically designed to combat the low frequency emitted by vehicles. Secondary glazing’s secret is the air cavity created between your primary window and the secondary glazed system, for optimum performance, we recommend a 150mm to 200mm air cavity between your primary window and secondary glazed system.
