Affordable, manageable & unobtrusive
Our secondary glazing system is the ultimate solution in combating draughty windows and external noise. It features the precision installation of a slimline glazed unit inside existing windows. The results are achieved through an insulated pocket of air between existing windows and secondary unit that combats noise and cold ingress using a system of robust frames and specialized glazing. The outcome is an affordable system that offers extensive acoustic, thermal and security benefits without affecting appearance in any way.
