Vertical Sliders – Secondary Glazing

Why choose vertical sliding secondary glazing?

For many older properties, modern double glazing may not be an option as it would impact on the property’s external appearance.

Vertical sliding secondary glazing units from Mr Misty Secondary Glazing Specialists Ipswich are particularly suited to the upgrade or refurbishment of period, heritage and listed properties which often have distinctive architectural features like sash windows.

Suitable for:

  • Listed, period or heritage properties with sash windows
  • Properties in Conservation Areas needing to conserve external appearances
  • Modern buildings wanting a traditional appearance which only sash windows provide
  • Historic properties seeking to make an interior design statement

With its wide spectrum of aluminium frame colours, vertical slider secondary glazing systems can be used to blend in unobtrusively with your traditional property both inside and out - or give it stylish, new, interior decor-led leash of life.

Secondary glazing can be added to even the most architecturally challenging properties – from half-timbered leaning houses in Coggeshall to symmetrical Georgian windows in Sudbury.


Vertical sliders - Features

Discreet and versatile, vertical sliding secondary glazing fits on the inside of vertical sliding sash windows, with the two secondary sashes securely retained - one above the other - in their outer frame. These secondary sashes are easily moved up and down with the weights supported by the balance system.

Systems are ‘face-fixed’ (installed to internal face of primary window) for increased thermal performance, or ‘reveal-fixed’ (with a glass to glass cavity, within window reveal) for optimum acoustic performance.
