  • Church Insulation | Selectaglaze ltd | Ecclesiastical buildings
    Thousands of places of worship are historic buildings centres of our community and form an important part of our heritage Many have also become disused through dwindling congregations and lack of funding so they are being deconsecrated and offered for change of use This could be conversion to homes community centres theatres and concert halls However whether your building is still used for worship or it has undergone change they all have to be fit for purpose and careful use of secondary glazing can help achieve modern day standards St George s Church Warmer Quieter environments For city churches noise can be a huge problem for congregations especially when close to a busy road However many churches also serve as local community centres running a range of activities that may create just as much noise from the inside causing a nuisance to local neighbours So how can the noise ingress and egress be prevented Quieter Selectaglaze secondary glazing fitted with standard glass can substantially reduce noise levels by 42 45dB and even higher levels if thicker glass is introduced Church buildings tend to have large single glazed leaded windows which are thermally inefficient and often quite draughty Areas that have regular community use will be difficult and expensive to heat When a church building is converted to a home improved thermal insulation will be an essential consideration for planning Selectaglaze secondary glazing includes two efficient seals and the warmer inner pane of glass will also reduce downdraughts leading to improved comfort levels near the window Using thermally efficient low emissivity glass in the secondary glazing heat loss can be reduced by up to 65 In turn this should help save money on energy bills Safer environments An unfortunate reality of our modern world is religious friction and places of worship

    churches and offices are being converted into living space These all come with their own issues and often need a high level of care to ensure thermal and noise insulation is addressed to create a comfortable environment for the occupant Super Luxury at Park Lane Warmer Quieter Secondary glazing offers very effective noise insulation and will outperform normal double glazed windows The additional secondary window is generally fitted 100 150mm away from the primary window and the wide air space limits noise transmission across the panes Quieter Property developers Many traditional commercial buildings suitable for conversion to homes are in noisy city centres an attractive location for living and working but dealing with excessive noise levels can be a critical factor for a successful development Selectaglaze will work with acousticians and architects to identify the most effective solutions New homes built on brown field sites are often in areas that are highly exposed to noise from traffic and other forms of transport New primary glazing will meet Part L of the building regulations but will often struggle to meet the higher acoustic requirements for these sites The introduction of secondary glazing in combination with the primary windows will perform to the required standards Selectaglaze secondary glazing systems fitted with standard glass are capable of reducing noise levels by 42 45dB and even higher levels if thicker glass is introduced More Secure Windows are normally seen as soft targets for intruders and a secondary window particularly when fitted with a simple lock provides an additional barrier to entry Selectaglaze also offers enhanced systems accredited to Secured by Design and The Loss Prevention Scheme and are a Police Preferred Specification These windows undergo rigorous testing and the most secure range matches the resistance offered by heavy bars or grilles and avoids the
