**In tests conducted for us at Coventry University, Extraglaze 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 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 had no stiffeners, and looked much better for it. Had we stiffened it we believe they would have been more comparable.
**** Only genuine Extraglaze panels were used in these tests. No other magnetic systems were proven.

Extraglaze is the ideal secondary glazing solution for Listed Buildings and for those in Conservation Areas and are particularly suitable for buildings of historic significance. Planning Permission or Listed Building Consent will almost certainly not be required from your local authority. "most authorities encourage the fitting of secondary glazing to increase the thermal efficiency of period windows."

Extraglaze is both a supplier and installer of specialist secondary glazing services, with a rapidly expanding network of trained fitters. Our customers include home owners, offices, schools, even holiday resorts with single glazed windows. We frequently install our secondary glazing in listed buildings and conservation areas. Extraglaze will even turn double glazing into triple glazing, and stop condensation. And if you live in a noisy city or town centre, it will bring you the sound insulation you never imagined possible, even as you watch the traffic pass by! We insulate sash windows and insulate casement windows. We supply and fit magnetic secondary glazing for sash windows and casement windows, even stained glass windows. If you require energy saving windows then insulating sash windows is a great alternative to window replacement or window renovation. The low cost of secondary double glazing is affordable compared to replacement sash windows & replacement casement windows. Extraglaze offers window thermal insulation and sound insulation for existing windows including stained glass windows. Both double glazed sash windows and triple glazed sash windows are possible. Extraglaze can turn draughty old windows into energy efficient windows.
