Common Secondary Glazing Issues

Secondary glazing is chosen for various important reasons:

Enhanced Thermal Insulation: Creates an additional barrier against heat loss, reducing energy costs.

Acoustic Insulation: Significantly lowers noise levels for a more comfortable interior environment.

Conservation and Aesthetics: Ideal for listed buildings or those in conservation areas where altering the original windows is not permitted.

Improved Security: Offers an extra layer of security without compromising the window's original design.

Flexibility: Removable options allow for seasonal adjustments and easy access to the primary windows for cleaning.

What is Secondary Glazing?

Secondary glazing involves the addition of a new, separate glazing layer inside the existing window framework, enhancing the window's insulation and soundproofing capabilities without impacting the building's external appearance. This solution is particularly effective in improving the energy efficiency and acoustic performance of single-glazed windows in historic buildings, where preserving the original architecture is essential. GLRE's secondary glazing systems are custom-designed and manufactured in-house, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal performance. Our systems offer the thermal and acoustic benefits of double glazing, making them an excellent choice for upgrading the performance of existing windows.
