A range of secondary glazing units from Selectaglaze have been used as part of the award-winning restoration of 5-6 Connaught Place, a Grade II listed property situated in the heart of London.
Originally built as townhouses in the early 19th century by Graham Taylor, the properties were converted into office space after the Second World War but have now been reinstated to their original purpose as luxury homes. The properties are in a prime location, with the shopping districts of Bond Street and Savile Row nearby, as well as the West End within easy walking distance.
To ensure the properties remained quiet and peaceful, John Sisk & Sons contacted Selectaglaze to manufacture and supply a secondary glazing solution to reduce the external noise levels.
Secondary glazing is fitted to the room side of existing primary windows as an effective way of decreasing unwanted noise. A reduction of 45dB is achievable when there is a gap between the primary and secondary glazing of at least 100mm.
Secondary glazing can also eliminate unwelcome drafts by trapping them in an insulation layer and also reduces heat loss.
As secondary glazing is a discreet and reversible adaptation, it is ideal for Listed properties and is widely accepted by most heritage bodies.
Selectaglaze first installed a sample unit within the property to demonstrate the level of noise reduction that can be achieved.
Satisfied with the performance and unobtrusive aesthetics, Redrow London specified a total of 69 units, installed in five different styles all using toughened safety glass. Curved units were also installed to reflect the styles of the primary windows.
