Secondary Double Glazing

Looking to make your home greener? A lot of heat is lost through single-glazed windows. Secondary glazing with polycarbonate is a great option. Polycarbonate panels are highly effective for heat retention and noise insulation.

Secondary double glazing with polycarbonate is less expensive than glass and is a simple DIY project. Polycarbonate panels are light in weight, making them easy to handle and install with everyday tools. Impact and shatter resistant, polycarbonate is 10 times stronger than acrylic and 200 times stronger than glass.

Polycarbonate can easily be cut to the size or shape of your window and attached it to the window frame with self-adhesive magnetic/steel tape. Remember to check tape compatibility and cut panels slightly smaller than the size of your window panes to allow for thermal expansion and contraction.
