Secondary glazing can play a large part in reducing sound transmission, especially in residential properties in cities and towns and in university settings where students require quieter environments in which to work.

An improved level of security is also a prerequisite for many clients and secondary glazing can help with this, especially in historic properties where it provides a second barrier point to entry.

 Architectural Bronze Casements’ secondary glazing is a fully independent window system installed to the interior of an existing window and units can be either openable, lift out or fixed. Opening units are side hung to allow access to the external window for cleaning and ventilation.

Depending on the interior aesthetic and shape of the opening, there are various window systems that are suitable for secondary glazing. Architectural Bronze Casements can provide technical advice on which system will suit you, your project and your specifications.
