The vertical slider is designed to copy the way your existing sash windows work. You simply slide the sashes up and down to open and access the window behind. Both sashes in our vertical slider can slide past each other which makes it really easy to clean the window and the area behind the secondary glazing.
“Below you will find a photograph of a vertical slider that we recently made and fitted for Lucy, in Brighton”.
Lucy lives in the centre of Brighton, in a Victorian property that has been converted into flats. The sash window in her bedroom overlooks the beer garden of the pub next door. Lucy asked us to install wooden secondary glazing to help reduce the noise at night. When we spoke to Lucy a few weeks later, she told us that the noise coming through her window was much quieter now. Lucy said “I have been sleeping better at night feel less tired when I get up for work in the morning”.
In the picture below, secondary glazing has been fitted to the window on the left. The window on the right has not yet had secondary glazing fitted.
Below is a video of a vertical slider, demonstrating how easy it is to use:
The horizontal slider is ideal for use with casement windows. You simply slide the sashes left and right to open and access the window behind.
Below you will find before and after photographs of a horizontal slider that we recently made and fitted for Jim and Margaret in Worthing.
Jim and Margaret live in an Edwardian property in Worthing. The bay window in the lounge looks out across their garden and Margaret often enjoys sitting by the window when reading a book. During the winter months the area near the window can become very cold and draughty, making it uncomfortable to sit by the window. Jim and Margaret asked us to install wooden secondary glazing to stop the cold draughts and help make the lounge warmer. They said “We are really pleased with how much warmer the room is now and the secondary glazing blends in really well with the window”.

Our lift-off secondary glazing is designed for windows that do not open or that aren’t used very often. The secondary glazing can be removed to allow you to clean the window behind, but remains fixed in place the majority of the time.
Below is an example of lift-off secondary glazing that we recently made and fitted for John in Kingston:
John lives on a busy main road which is really noisy, particularly in the morning and evening during rush hour. John works from home and his office window overlooks the road. He told us the noise from the road was “driving him mad”. John chose lift-off secondary glazing because he rarely opens the window. He was really pleased with the amount of sound reduction achieved. John said “The noise used to be unbearable and it has now changed to a barely noticeable background hum”.
Below is a demonstration video of our lift-off secondary glazing:
Our hinged secondary glazing is designed for casement windows. It opens inwards like a door, to allow you to access the window behind.
Below you can see a photographs of hinged secondary glazing that we recently made and fitted for Simon in Haywards Heath.
Simon lives in a conservation area and has casement windows in his bedroom. Simon said his bedroom was really cold in the winter no matter how high he turned the heating up. Simon told us that the secondary glazing has made a dramatic improvement to the warmth of his bedroom. In fact, Simon was so impressed that he has asked us to return and fit secondary glazing to his lounge windows as well.
Wooden Secondary Glazing with Shutters
Our wooden shutters are made specifically for use with our secondary glazing.
