SECONDARY GLAZING SOLIHULL
Lift Out & Horizontal Sliders are by far the most commonly used secondary glazing;
Economically, the Lift Out is the most cost effective type of secondary glazing available. Its most common application is where limited access to the primary window is required, for example a window which has been installed with the sole object of providing light to a room.
As 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.
The Horizontal Slider is undoubtedly the most frequently used type of secondary glazing. Its uses are therefore widespread, being applied to high rise or low-level commercial properties, historic buildings as well as all kinds of domestic dwellings. The Granada system provides sensitive solutions to the problems created by noise and sound pollution.
Generally available in two, three or four panelled versions, the sashes are fitted with brass rollers, ensuring the smoothest sliding action. Twin brush seals provide excellent high sealing efficiency. This has been scientifically proven to eliminate draughts, increase thermal insulation and give greater improvements to the security of the primary windows. The security issue is further enhanced with the use of the latest locks and handles.
Due to the characteristics of the existing primary window, the Balanced Vertical Slider is the most complex type of secondary glazing system. It is applied generally to older properties. It is particularly suited to the refurbishment and upgrade of the nation’s architectural heritage.
The individually pre-tensioned spiral spring balances control the motion of the sash, enabling infinite vertical positioning. This design provides ease of movement and has been specially developed to withstand decades of wear and tear. Tilt in versions can be pivoted through almost 180 degrees. This is especially useful for cleaning but just as importantly can be crucial when considering fire escape requirements. All variations of Granada’s exclusive secondary glazing styles are completely compatible. Each type can be easily used with another no matter what the application may be.
When it comes to providing an unobtrusive secondary glazing system, the hinged unit provides the most appropriate solution, since there are no transoms or mullions to spoil the view. The reduction in noise, and improvement in thermal insulation, greatly enhances both the living and working environments.
