*We have installed Extraglaze Secondary Glazing magnetic secondary glazing in all types of listed buildings, in conservation areas and in World Heritage sites. In every case, after discussion with the relevant bodies, no formalities/consent was required. We advise that customers always make appropriate enquiries in case an exception should arise, however usually a phone enquiry is all it takes to get clarification.
**In tests conducted for us at Coventry University, Extraglaze Secondary Glazing suffered 78% less condensation than the aluminium framed glass secondary glazing, when fitted to a sash window, with high humidity 'indoors' and temperatures of between -5 and -10 centigrade 'outdoors'.
***In tests conducted for us at the Building Research Establishment, we compared Extraglaze Secondary Glazing against an aluminium system stiffened by sliding framework running down the centre of the window. This stiffness gave it a slight advantage. Whereas the Extraglaze Secondary Glazing had no stiffeners, and looked much better for it. Had we stiffened it we believe they would have been more comparable.
