A wealth of benefits
Secondary glazing can offer significant noise insulation, thermal insulation, enhanced security, improved air quality and, subject to glazing specifications, protection against the damaging effects of UV light.
The framing sections are made to exclusive Selectaglaze designs using an aluminium alloy. This strong, lightweight material is extruded to form the slender, complex shapes needed to accommodate seals, fixings and specialist hardware.
High performance finishes
The aluminium can have a variety of finishes. The more commonly used is polyester powder paint-Interpon and Synthapulvin. It comes in a wide range of colours as well as woodgrain effect. Unless specified the aluminium will come in a standard finish: white HIPCA semi-gloss. The second option for finishes is analock anodising - in an architectural range of silver, black, bronze and blue-grey. All surface treatments have a long life expectancy with minimum maintenance.
We have a range of handles, finger pulls and locks which are specific to each product. Please check the ironmongery tab on each product page to see the options available to you
High performance gaskets
The glass is held in position by PVC nitrile gaskets or, in the case of the heavier casement systems, specialist bonding tapes that offer high levels of security. The standard colour is black with white available as an option.
The sliding units are fitted with twin silicone treated grey polypropylene pile seals from Schlegel. Hinging units are fitted with high performance Q-Lon seals available in white, black or brown. The material has excellent 'memory' and retains its original shape year after year to give optimum performance.
