Easyfix Secondary Glazing Fitting Kit

Easyfix really is easy to fit yourself.  All you need is a ballpoint pen, a craft knife, a tape measure and a screwdriver.

When using the Easyfix Kit, glazing panels may be fitted to opening windows to allow for ventilation and use of the windows or to the main window frame for maximum insulation and draught proofing.

This kit comprises of 5m of flexible white PVC edging strip suitable for use with 2mm acrylic, 24 nylon fixing clips, 24 wood screws, a mitre block for perfect corner cuts on the edging and easy to follow instructions.

This kit contains screws for fitting to wooden frames. Self tapping screws which are recommended for metal frames can be purchased from your local DIY supplier.

How to order your acrylic panel - simply enter the measurements of your desired panel on our cut to size acrylic page here

Please make sure that you order your acrylic in a thickness of 2mm only and that your panel will overlap your window frame by 10mm on all four sides.

Please be aware that if the total measurement all the way round your panel is more than 5m you will need to purchase more than one Easyfix Secondary Glazing Fitting Kit.

Helpful Hints - The edging strip is always easier to work with when it’s warm. We suggest placing it in the airing cupboard or similar place the night before use. When placing edging strip onto glass DO NOT run finger down the back of the edging strip to apply it quickly, work a few centimetres at a time.

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions

How should I clean my acrylic windows ?
We are often asked about the best way to care for acrylic glazing. 

Acrylic glazing can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft cotton cloth. 

No chemical cleaning products should be used on acrylic as this will lead to damage to the acrylic. 

Alternatively, we are very impressed with suitable cleaner Vuplex for a shiny, cleaner, more lustrous finish with no smears or smudges. It makes colored plastics vibrant, clear plastics virtually transparent and plastic paints gleaming like new.  Vuplex is a product which delivers fast quality results with minimal effort and fuss. It also protects new plastic from scratches and grime and restores plastic which has fine scratches and in ground grime. For this reason we sell it at a promotional price of £5.99.
 
Will secondary glazing eliminate condensation ?
Condensation happens when the moisture content of warm air settles on a colder surface -  the colder the air, the less moisture it can hold.  Windows are are typically colder than the air in a room and therefore a noticeable place for condensation.  .On the face of it, because Secondary Glazing will have little effect on the airborne moisture in the home, it cannot solve condensation problems. On the other hand, because Secondary Glazing helps keep heat in the home which can cause less moisture to condensate, and by insulating windows (the most obvious place for condensation to occur) it certainly can reduce the worst visible effects
 
Will secondary glazing help reduce noise from outside ?
Opinions on the subject vary, especially as much of the information about noise reducing properties of windows comes from manufacturers themselves.  A consensus is that single glazing with a secondary panel is a better insulator than double glazing, and likewise double glazing with a secondary panel beats triple glazing.
 
Will secondary glazing make my home warmer ?
Yes, Secondary Glazing and Double Glazing should both prevent around 60% of window heat loss
 
Will secondary glazing work on larger windows ?
For large windows, such as 1200mm x 1200mm or bigger, you can place a couple of screws immediately below the secondary glazing panel to add support and prevent the chance of it slipping or detaching.
