DOUBLE AND SECONDARY GLAZING
Double or Secondary Glazing is an excellent way of improving thermal and sound insulation in your home, and eliminates draughts.

Where allowed, double-glazed timber sashes or casements can be manufactured to your specific requirements to match the original style of the windows in your home, and if the window profile is thick enough, ultra-thin, thermally efficient double-glazed units can be fitted into your existing sashes.
Combined with our draught-proofing solutions this can dramatically improve the heat insulation of your home, reducing your energy bills, improving sound insulation and making your home an even more cosy environment.
Dorset Heritage use very slim double-glazed units, which can be as little as 10mm in thickness, retaining the traditional feel of your period windows.
Dorset Heritage will fit your new double-glazed units, hand-finished in our weather-resistant paint finish. As with all our new windows, they are manufactured using Accoya timber, which is guaranteed against rot for 50 years and has excellent dimensional stability.
