What is Secondary Glazing?
A functional and effective glazing solution
A technique that involves installing supplementary glazing over an existing window, our secondary glazing is supplied in a fantastic range of styles and designs. With a choice between sliding and fixed options, our secondary glazing service improves the functionality of your existing windows.
In this process, a completely separate aluminium frame and glass is installed on the interior portion of the existing frame or window reveal, thereby transforming your single-glaze window into one with a crude form of double-glazing and the associated benefits. The goal of our secondary glazing service is to help you retain the charm and beauty of your original window while improving its practicality.
- Available in a range of styles and designs
