What is Secondary Glazing?
Secondary Glazing can be fitted to almost any window or door – so we should be able to fit it at your home in Bristol. It is usually single glazed, with the glass panes secured by compression gaskets into extruded aluminium framing sections.
The glazing is mounted using hinges, rollers, glides or spiral balances into an extruded aluminium outer frame, which allows the individual glass panes or panels to slide horizontally or vertically, hinge open or slide. This allows access to the existing primary window for ventilation.
The exceptions to this would be lift-out units &and fixed units, which are either lifted in & out or are permanently fixed! The units are then fitted into the existing primary windows & doors. Why not contact us for further advice and a secondary glazing quote.
