Secondary Glazing: Long Live the Classics

21st Nov
Secondary Glazing from

Secondary Glazing is a perfect option for those who are looking for added protection and security without changing the aesthetic of the building. Keep that vibrant charm while planning for longevity.

In a beautiful market town like Bury St Edmunds and neighbors, there is often a challenge to retain the original beauty of the Victorian and medieval building construction particularly in regards to the windows. We offer secondary glazing to closely replicate the amazing benefits of double glazed windows while retaining the original look of the building.

We work in harmony with the local building conservation officers making sure any recommendations we offer are consistent with their remit to keep East Anglian homes in character, yet improve on the energy efficiency of the homes.

As a local provider with a world of experience, we understand the nuances of preserving a town’s historical beauty and aesthetic. Some of the advantages of secondary glazing include:

  • Thermal Insulation: Energy and cost efficient, reducing the heat loss that comes from single glazed windows while keeping you comfortable temperature wise and in the wallet.
  • Sound and Noise Insulation: Reduce obtrusive street clatter and achieve significant levels of noise reduction and sound proofing.
  • Window Security: Adding a secondary glaze offers an additional barrier of protection for your home that can’t be opened from the outside.
  • Cost Savings: Secondary Glazing cost less than double glazing replacement, with a quicker installation and pay back.
  • Environment & Conservation: Secondary glazing is not subject to Conservation Restrictions and is generally recommended and approved for listed buildings.
  • Sealed to Perfection: Eliminate or drastically reduce the onslaught of dust, pollen and other airbourne pollutants.
  • Low Maintenance: Low Hassle, Low Stress, High Quality.

We fit sub-frames inside the window reveal and then fit a secondary glazing unit, making sure the structure of the windows’ horizontal and vertical bars are mirrored so that from an external view the secondary glazing units are not seen. We have a wide range of styles to suit any application. It’s technical, but we guarantee you will be happy with the final result. Long live the classics.
