Are you suffering from street noise?
You may need secondary glazing!
Are you suffering from noisy traffic noise, train noise, airport noise or even a neighbours barking dog? Secondary glazing is the most effective sound insulation for all types of noise. Unlike walls, roofs and ceilings, that will reflect and absorb sound waves, glass will allow all those high frequency sounds and vibrations to pass through it; this is why windows are generally the weakest point of sound insulation in the home.
What is Secondary Glazing?
Secondary Glazing provides two layers of window glass isolated from each other allowing greater noise reduction. It provides the best type of soundproofing for many households that are situated around airports, railway lines, under flight paths, near industrial units or next to busy roads. Secondary Glazing provides better sound insulation because it has a larger air gap between both panels therefore far superior than conventional double glazing for noise reduction.
When it comes to energy saving; windows are one of the weakest points in most homes. Secondary glazing will give extra thermal insulation as heat loss through windows is reduced by half when you add secondary glazing. As well as noise, condensation can also be reduced, and draughts will be eliminated too. With its energy saving properties secondary glazing could not only reduce the noise but save you money on your heating bills too.
There are many different options of secondary glazing and we will endeavour to meet your requirements, taste and budget. Our high quality profiles will match your main window frame exactly, so once installed the secondary glazing is blended in making them barely visible.
Secondary Glazing can reduce noise by up to 75%
