Reducing condensation solution

The Knappers dining room was cold and draughty. It is north facing and in the morning the windows suffered from heavy condensation. As they had a number of rooms and windows  to insulate they wanted a fairly low cost solution that was easy to fit themselves.

They fitted 4mm plate polycarbonate sheets (cut to size by Omega) with white backed magnetic tape fittings. The polycarbonate was supplied already cut to size by Omega based on measurements the Knappers had given .

Omega were happy to advise on how to measure up. The magnetic and steel tapes are supplied in rolls and they found it easy to cut with heavy duty scissors. Some alcohol wipes had even been included with the kit to make it easy for the customer to prepare the window frames.

The room is much warmer and it has reduced the condensation in the mornings. They can easily remove the panel for cleaning and decorating.
