Ecoease secondary glazing – The Basics
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’ and draughts 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.
PET is fitted to the inside 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
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.

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.Have a look at our fitting instructions- see link below:
OR, if you don’t have time to do it yourself, you can order our made up version.(M2F)
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.
