A discreet way to add another layer of glazing to your property, Secondary Glazing is uniquely designed to fit seamlessly with your existing windows.

If you live in a period home, it is most likely that you are living in a conservation area or a listed building and therefore are not allowed to change the windows due to planning restrictions.
Local planning departments and Historic Scotland advise that the installation of Secondary Glazing is the most cost effective method of improving energy efficiency while retaining the original fabric and character of the windows.
Secondary Glazing is not only for homes in listed and conservation areas; it also works well in more modern properties. Many customers opt for Secondary Glazing due to the level of road traffic noise, flight paths or a nearby railway.
With CR Smith Acoustic Noise Reducing Glass you can leave the commotion outside where it belongs.
Creating warmth for you and your family
Increased insulation is the main reason customers install Secondary Glazing to their homes. All of our solutions create an insulating layer of air that is as important to the retention of energy as the fitting detail and sealing.

This maximises retention of warmth, reduces energy bills and keeps the cold air and draughts out. Our solutions may even have a positive impact on the energy on the energy rating of your home.
