Where the reduction of sound transmission is required, Secondary Double Glazing systems offer a wider air cavity beyond that which is usually available within the scope of traditional double glazing units, whether they are PVCu, aluminium or timber.
Aluminium secondary glazing Systems are installed within the property and are fitted either against the internal face of the existing window frame or adjacent against the window reveal, whether of plaster or timber finish. The wider the air cavity, the more significant the sound reduction. Secondary glazing cost is favourable compared with the cost of complete window replacement.
Roads, railways, airports and even people all contribute to noisy environments in everyday life. In addition, secondary glazing units can vastly reduce the amount of heat lost through old draughty sash windows in conservation areas which restrict replacement windows.
This reduction can be further enhanced by fitting energy efficient glass such as Pilkington K glass.
Aluminium secondary glazing windows are fitted easily and quickly. They are available in satin anodised, white or Van Dyke brown standard colours to compliment your existing window decoration. Other RAL powder coated aluminium colours are also available to order.
All aluminium profiles are extruded from 6063T6 alloy. Draught proofing is afforded with double polypile to achieve a maximum aluminium profile to aluminium profile seal, particularly on sliding system arrangements.
A compressible foam seal is fitted as standard to face fitting systems to further enhance your Aluminium Secondary Window insulation needs.
Enjoy your existing home windows with the benefits of sound and heat insulation along with a New Aluminium secondary window installation.
