“…one of the most cost-effective ways to improve thermal performance.” – Historic Scotland, May 2022
Homeowners choose secondary glazed windows because they’re quiet, warm and secure. These three features are the bedrock of our unique secondary glazing system and are the reason why so many homeowners are adopting secondary glazing.
Our entire suite of bespoke secondary glazing products is backed by a comprehensive 5-year guarantee.
Our bespoke secondary glazing range is an ideal solution for listed properties and homes within conservation areas. Where replacement windows are not a viable option, secondary glazing provides all the thermal and acoustic benefits you’d expect from from a modern window, without damaging the unique aesthetics of the primary window.
Improving the thermal and acoustic performance of your listed property shouldn’t negatively impact the character of your home. Our entire range of bespoke secondary glazing products come equipped with durable, slimline aluminium frames that accentuate the styling of the existing window.
Installing secondary glazing is the most effective method of keeping external noise out and keeping the heat in. Our ultra high performance frames can reduce external noise levels by up to 80% and reduce heat loss by up to 65%. All this whilst retaining your property’s authentic aesthetics*.

From horizontal and vertical sliders to tilt and turn windows, CR Smith secondary glazing works seamlessly with the mechanics of your original windows whilst complementing your window aesthetics, including the colour as closely as possible.
Our easy clean system also means that no matter what format you select, CR Smith secondary glazing is purpose built to allow easy cleaning, both inside and out.
Our fixed units are an independent window that is permanently fitted on the inside of the existing window.
Suitable for a range of windows, including both casement and fixed, our horizontal sliding units open from side to side and are slim, versatile and easily accessed for both cleaning and ventilation.
Opening from top to bottom, our vertical sliding units are also available with a special slide pass or tilt in function, which enables both panels to individually pivot inwards for easy access and cleaning.
No matter the shape and stature of your existing window, we are able to manufacture custom secondary units to order. There is virtually no limit to the designs and styles we can create.
With no transoms or mullions to spoil the view, our hinged secondary glazing windows are a truly unobtrusive glazing option. The unit opens like a door and is available with a multi-point locking system or butt hinges.
Similar to our fixed units in concept and design, but with the ability to easily remove the frames to allow for increased airflow and improved access for cleaning.
Our guarantee is our commitment to look after our customers, and their products, for a period of five years from the date of installation. This guarantee covers both the product and workmanship, and we will never hesitate to honour our obligations under its terms.
Secondary glazing is a discreet second window fitted to the inside of an existing window that is designed to help reduce noise and provide added insulation.
Secondary glazing is ideal for listed buildings or conservation areas where there might be restrictions on new double glazing or more contemporary styles. Indeed, Historic Scotland and many local planning departments advise that secondary glazing is the most cost-effective method of improving energy efficiency in those cases.
Yes, we believe fitting secondary glazing is the best solution to achieve a reduction in noise. We can advise you on the optimum specification for your home and circumstances.
Our Discreet FitTM frames are extra narrow and carefully designed so they align with the frames of your existing windows to cover as little as possible, so the overall appearance is maintained.
