Q. Can I remove my Ecoease Secondary glazing and replace it easily?
A. Yes, The panel is held on by a magnetic edging strip which has a thin white painted steel strip attached to it magnetically. The white steel strip is self-adhesive and this is what remains on your window frame when you remove the panels in summer. The panels can then be easily put back up magnetically.
Q. How wide is the edging strip?
A. The edging strip is 18mm wide.
Q. How thick is the clear PET?
A. It is 3mm thick.
Q. What if I have dark stained wood window frames?
A. You would use our dark brown magnetic tape. This sticks straight onto the clear PET panel and shows through as a dark brown line. The opposing magnet on your window frame is also dark brown. The tape is 13mm wide ( ½”).
Q. My windows have wooden frames. How does your system attach to this?
A. The edging strips have a magnetic back, attached to which, magnetically, is a thin white painted steel strip. This has a self adhesive backing to allow it to be attached to your window frame. This means that when you remove the panels, all that is on your white window frame is a thin white strip.
Q. I have handles on my windows which stick out over where the clear panel would sit. Can I still use your product?
A. Unfortunately not. It’s one problem we haven’t found an answer to………………yet.
Q. How can I get rid of condensation?
A. Condensation is caused by warm humid air hitting a cold surface. It then reaches what is known as a dew point and the moisture in the air condenses onto the cold surface. PET is an inherently warm material and the warm air does not therefore reach the point where condensation is formed. It may be of interest to know that we originally developed this product to save energy costs, but now 60% of our sales are to prevent condensation.
Q. Does Ecoease solve draughts?
A. We have had feedback from customers who say that their Ecoease panels have helped with draughts but this is an added bonus when draughts are not severe. Ecoease is not a draught proofing product and, like any form of secondary glazing, works much better if you draught proof your original windows first.
