Tried and tested Secondary Glazing
Secondary Glazing is a cost effective way of retaining thermal and acoustic gains for your buildings needs. Secondary glazing can often be added to provide protection and draught-proofing where the primary glazing has reach its limits.
While older houses are beautiful they can be quite draughty without the appropriate measures in place. Many homeowners want to upgrade their windows without compromising the integrity and history of their beloved building.
Whether by personal preference or listed building restrictions, Sherriff Stained Glass Specialists can help you preserve your original windows through secondary glazing.
We have a toughened or laminated glass secondary glazing system for fixed leaded lights and windows that requires no frame work and is almost invisible once fitted.
Secondary glazing not only increases your windows amenity but also improves your home’s safety and security.
Our secondary glazing has been approved for use in many listed buildings including churches and is always treated on a ‘case by case’ basis.
We use no permanent fixings into the frames or screws that would damage historic window frames.
Benefits of Secondary Glazing
Secondary glazing can reduce heat loss by nearly 60%. It can also effectively reduce sound transmission.
In multi-paned windows, secondary glazing will generally be more thermally efficient than replacing the existing glass with double glazing due to thermal bridging through the frame and glazing bars. It is also usually less expensive.
Some of these measures enable buildings that retain historic windows to be more energy efficient than buildings whose windows are simply replaced with double glazed units.
