Some updates on on-going projects around the country....
Secondary Glazing For Sound Proofing
We have two exciting Secondary Glazing projects completed: one on singlei-glazed windows on an apartment complex on Ormond Quay, Dublin. These are single-glazed sash windows, which had become very draughty and rattly over the years, leaking energy and because of traffic – were very noisy. By fitting Secondary Windows it eliminated the draughts, keeps in the heat and minimises noise levels by up yo 70%.
A similar contract has just been completed on an apartment block on junction of Capel & Bolton St, where client was having issues with noise emanating from a local business – we had similar success on both.
We have also completed a ‘front of house’ Secondary Glazing contract in a business premises on Lombard St, Dublin. The existing windows were single-glazed and required the benefits of extra glazing, without having the expense of having to remove perfectly good hardwood windows and changing the face of the premises.
As the Secondary Windows allow our client to slide them open / closed for periodic ventilation, he uses the ‘air gap’ in between our glass and the glasses on his primary window to display products for sale. For this client - Secondary Glazing combined Energy Savings, Sound Proofing and Increased Security for our client.
A PERIOD HOME:
A gorgeous period home in Rathmines, Dublin have also benefitted from the fitting of our Secondary Windows. The existing windows are original sliding sash, had become draughty over the years and client was complaining of ‘cold zones’ around the windows and the difficulty in heating the home and windows and external doors were generally in need of Energy Saving measures.
Our client had seen our work first-hand in The Merrion Hotel, Dublin and required increased Energy Savings, Sound Proofing and Increased Security.
Our client has confirmed that as a result of our Secondary Glazing work their home is now much warmer, much easier to heat and when the house warms up - the heat is retained for much longer, making them much more comfortable and thereby saving dramatically on fuel consumption!!
A LISTED BUILDING:
Another contract followed on from a chat with a colleague who had previously had her home fitted with our Secondary windows in Wellington Rd, Dublin, where we completed a similar contract on windows in a Listed Building, where there were perfectly good sash windows in place. The windows in this home, had beautifully preserved leaded glass. The architect had advised the client that Secondary Glazing was the answer to eliminating draughts, retention of energy, with the added bonus of good sound insulation. The client confirmed that the results in each case were immediate.
A LISTED BUILDING:
Another client who noted our website on the internet is in Sheephaven, Co. Wicklow and they have confirmed of a much more cosy home as a result of our work - reduced energy bills and no cold zones around the windows anymore which was ‘the order of the day’. This client had a small number of windows done in 2009, further windows done in 2014, while the rest of the windows were done recently. A further benefit of the Secondary Glazing, for this client, is the reduced noise levels.
Occupants of an office in a busy part of Sligo town were experiencing difficulty with traffic noises on a constant basis. Having Secondary Glazing fitted eliminated the problem for them. Homeowners in Trim, Bective, Kilmesssan, Dunshaughlin, Drumree and Navan, who knew about our service in Co. Kildare – all had noise issues through their uPVC Double Glazed windows and as result found it difficult to sleep and some had children who had difficulty studying as result of road noise.
A well-known business premises on Fitzwilliam Square, Dublin had noise issues with some windows. This issue solved itself with fitting of Secondary Windows.
Apartment dwellers in Temple Bar had ongoing issues with noise from passers-by, late night noises.
An established Guest House in Carlingford, Co. Louth had ongoing issue of road noise. We initially Sound Proofed the most offending windows in 2016. Others were treated to the benefits of Secondary Glazing in mid -2017 - with total success.
Staff working in offices on Lavitts Quay, Cork City where quiet background, (without having to deal with issue of road noise emanating through the windows) was mandatory.
This was a great test and our Secondary Glazing passed with flying colours.
The well-known Cryan’s Hotel, Carrick-On-Shannon and Ashley Hotel, Cork City have availed of our Sound Proofing System with total success.
