Reducing your heating costs and heat loss

Secondary Glazing

Caddy Windows secondary glazing consists of an aluminium outer frame with an additional pane of glass. This is installed on the inside of the existing single or double glazed window.

This type of window system is predominantly used in properties where building and planning restrictions are enforced. This is because in most cases the original windows cannot be re-placed easily, so the used of secondary glazing provides the desired effects of reducing heat loss and noise without compromising the aesthetics of existing windows and frames.

Our secondary glazing is suitable for all types of premises including grade one and two listed buildings, schools, colleges, hospitals, offices and homes.

Styles available:

sechorOur easy slide horizontal secondary glazing products are available in two, three or four panelled options. Each is provided with twin brush seals to provide excellent efficiency and significantly reduce draughts. By installing this product, you benefit from greater security to the primary windows enhanced with the use of the latest locks and handles.

Perfect for wide multi-pane windows that have vertical bars, such as casement windows. Panels slide to give easy access to the existing window for ventilation and can be removed for cleaning.

secvertThe vertical slide secondary glazing include pre-tensioned spiral spring balances which control the motion of the sash for easy operation and has been developed to withstand decades of wear and tear. The Tilt in versions can be pivoted through almost 180 degrees which is especially useful for cleaning to meet fire escape requirements.

Vertical slide secondary glazing is ideal for windows with horizontal bars, such as vertical sliding sash windows.

sechingeThe hinged secondary glazing unit can be manufactured in two main types of either friction stays or butt hinges. The single hinged unit opens on a restricting friction stay. Where the application is on a larger scale, the friction stay is replaced with a butt hinge.

We have developed and rigorously tested a variety of butt hinges for differing leaf weights. The double hinged unit has been primarily designed to fit in front of larger Windows or French Doors, utilising the same range of hinges.

secliftAs well as economical, the Lift Out is also the most basic form of secondary glazing. As its name implies, it simply lifts out of a secured channel. For practical purposes, it is advised that the sash size be considered since the weight of glass must be of manageable proportions.

Each sash is manufactured with double brush pile seal, further increasing the thermal and sound insulation properties
