The Benifits of Secondary Glazing


Secondary glazing is another window fitted on the inside of an existing window, with soaring energy prices this is increasingly popular as it offers the following benefits:

  • Reduces heat loss
  • Decreases noise pollution
  • Eliminates draughts

Secondary glazing can be fitted to any property – new build or old and Heritage Glass offera number of systems in a range of styles to suit.

Horizontal Sliders.

The Horizontal Slider is undoubtedly the most frequently used type of secondary glazing. Its uses are therefore widespread, being applied to high rise or low-level commercial properties, historic buildings as well as all kinds of domestic dwellings.

How It Works:

Generally available in two, three or four panelled versions, the sashes are fitted with brass rollers, ensuring the smoothest sliding action. Twin brush seals provide excellent high sealing efficiency. This has been scientifically proven to eliminate draughts, increase thermal insulation and give greater improvements to the security of the primary windows. The security issue is further enhanced with the use of the latest locks and handles.

Vertical Sliders.

A gable-end conservatory can add real grandeur to your home. Gable-end conservatories date back to the Georgian style, of which modern gable-end conservatories are a variant.

How It Works:

The individually pre-tensioned spiral spring balances control the motion of the sash, enabling infinite vertical positioning. This design provides ease of movement and has been specially developed to withstand decades of wear and tear. Tilt in versions can be pivoted through almost 180 degrees. This is especially useful for cleaning but just as importantly can be crucial when considering fire escape requirements. All variations of Granada’s exclusive secondary glazing styles are completely compatible. Each type can be easily used with another no matter what the application may be.
