About Secondary Glazing
Secondary glazing is a fully independent internal window, fitted on the room side of the existing primary window. This provides significant noise reduction, improved thermal performance and enhanced security.

The Selectaglaze range of secondary glazing is the result of years of research and development. Our products are carefully designed and fully tested to provide effective noise insulation, thermal and draught insulation and enhanced security. The comprehensive range allows sympathetic treatment of almost any style of window.
Secondary Glazing for Heritage Buildings
We live on a small island with limited space for our buildings and have to work with planning policies that restricts the Greenfield land available for new construction. Buildings and their sites are therefore continually adapted to suit the needs of the times but there are clear guidelines on both respecting and retaining those parts of the built environment that define our heritage.
Both heritage bodies and conservation professionals recognise that historic buildings have to adapt in order to be attractive for modern usage. Most are thermally inefficient and draughty with poor acoustic performance all of which have to be addressed and can be helped through the addition of secondary glazing.
