Windows are perceived as the weak point in building security. Secondary glazing offers an affordable and highly effective solution to help counter this issue.
For homes, the benefits are clear. Secondary glazing is extremely difficult to open from the outside, by providing an additional physical barrier against forced entry.
For commercial properties, vulnerable windows that are easily accessible are prime candidates for secondary glazing. Protection is also recommended against industrial vandalism or theft of artistic or commercial items of value.
All frames are made from tough aluminium and securely fixed to resist forcing, and the use of cutting tools are deterred via a sophisticated combination of glass, resin and polycarbonate.
As Approved Partners of Granada Secondary Glazing, we have direct access to their full range of secondary glazing products. These discreet aluminium systems have been developed specifically for heritage and listed properties, and provide a wealth of additional benefits beyond enhanced security.
Secondary glazing can eliminate draughts and reduce heat loss by 45%. The transmission of noise through a window can be reduced by up to 80%, whilst introducing a second barrier also helps to tackle condensation.
At SWS, we offer a complete selection of frame styles and over 200 RAL colours, enabling the most sympathetic of designs. Products include vertical and horizontal sliders, hinged casement, and fixed and lift-out windows.
On heritage and more traditional properties, the styling speaks volumes. Whether your building is Edwardian, Victorian or Georgian, our secondary glazing will deliver enhanced security, as well as respect for tradition. To learn more, please get in touch.
