Ecoease uses established double glazing principles with our unique magnetic sealing system to achieve cost effective acoustic and thermal insulation for existing windows.
The insulation benefits of secondary glazing are widely recognised:
- Heat transfer is significantly reduced, saving money on heating costs
- Reduces incidence of ‘cold spots’ providing greater home living comfort.
- Condensation problems are greatly reduced saving time on morning mop ups and preventing the growth of unhealthy mould and mildew on window frames and curtains.
- Noise from outside can be significantly reduced providing peaceful home living conditions.
Ecoease Secondary Glazing is made from premium quality, UV stabilised PET sheet and high
performance plastics. All materials are fully recyclable.
Please note that this, like any form of secondary glazing, works much better if you draught proof your original windows first.
The purpose of the Ecoease glazing system is not to eliminate draughts, this is achieved by the original glass window. The addition of the Ecoease glazing system is to maintain a sealed layer of static air inside the original window to improve thermal and acoustic insulation and to eliminate condensation. With Ecoease, PET is fitted to the inside frame of the existing window, and held in place using our magnetic system.
This system traps a layer of still air between the pane of glass and the Ecoease Secondary Glazing. This trapped airspace will reduce the rate of heat loss, and also act as a baffle to reduce sound transmission.
Ecoease can double glaze your existing windows for a fraction of the cost when compared with replacement double glazed windows, and will still provide you with the benefits of standard double glazing.
Replacing windows can be a messy and invasive process involving the removal of window frames, re-fitting of architraves and window furnishings. An Ecoease installation involves the fitting of a discreet second skin to your existing window frames.
This is particularly applicable to listed buildings where conventional double glazing is restricted.
Ecoease gives the benefits of double glazing, without detracting from the beauty of the original windows.
Planning permission is not required.

Ecoease secondary double glazing is the safest, most sustainable and environmentally friendly solution available. We are the only secondary glazing retailer to supply PET clear plastic sheet.( Polyethylene terephthalate. PET is ideal for secondary double glazing – its fire retardant (class 1 Fire Rating), unlike the acrylic which is class 3 – it is impact resistant – and its 100% recyclable.
How Do I Fit It?
It’s remarkably simple with clear PET panels cut to suit the exact sizes you order. You then put a simple white frame with a magnetic back around the clear panels. A white thin steel strip ( attached to the back of the magnetic strip) is then applied to your window frame with a self adhesive backing. See our fitting instructions – Click Here.
OR if you don’t have time to do it yourself, you can order our made up version – click here
All you do is give us your window frame measurements and we make the whole thing up for you. When it arrives, you simply peel off the protective film and offer it up to your window frame – a five minute job.
