Secondary Glazing Installation - Murrays' Mills
Hear from Lindsey Gordon about how we installed our industry-leading secondary glazing solutions within her apartment. Living in an early 19th Century converted mill in the heart of Manchester, the building is listed, which means Lindsey was unable to change her existing windows.
Thankfully, we were on hand to help make her home quiet, warm and secure…

An Array Of Benefits
Beyond the reduction in external noise and heat loss, secondary glazing also allows homes to retain their character and charm, whilst benefitting from 21st century thermal and acoustic performance. In monetary terms, replacing timber sash windows can often be an expensive affair. Installing secondary glazing on the other hand is a far cheaper and simpler process. The cost saving doesn’t stop there though, as our secondary glazing solution radically reduces heating costs by ensuring the cold weather remains outside.
Secondary Glazing vs Double Glazing
From a noise cancellation perspective, secondary glazing is the most effective way to reduce noise within our customers homes, even more so than the most high-spec double glazing solution. The small gap between the existing window and the secondary unit effectively acts as an acoustic insulator, blocking sound as it attends to enter the property. Our secondary glazing is manufactured using state-of-the-art machinery to lock-in a tightly sealed frame which reduces noise levels by up to a whopping 80%.
Tap Into Healthier, Smarter Living
A greater sense of well-being begins with the spaces around us. We are inspired by light-filled, quiet and comfortable rooms that also let the views in. It’s how everyone wants to live today. We at Granada design and manufacture affordable secondary glazing products that support this vision.
Does secondary glazing add value?
One area that secondary glazing unquestionably adds value, is your energy bills. Did you know that you can lose up to 10% of your home’s heat through poorly performing windows? This is even more noticeable in older homes that don’t offer a lot of insulation. Secondary glazing is the perfect solution, protecting your existing windows, improving their lifespan and saving up to 10% more energy than you would with traditional double glazing.
What is the best secondary glazing?
At Granada Secondary Glazing, we manufacture using only the highest-grade aluminium profile, with hardware that is built to last. Our aluminium secondary glazing is strong and effective for noise reduction and heat retention. It also gives a much slimmer profile than other frames (such as wooden secondary glazing), it is built to stand the test of time (unlike magnetic secondary glazing) and continues to give you access to the main window (unlike secondary glazing film).
