Insulate a north facing window

This window was cold and draughty.  It was North Facing. There were cold draughts coming from this window that they wanted to eliminate. They didn’t want to replace the complete window and instead needed a fairly low-cost solution that was easy to fit themselves.

They fitted 4mm plate polycarbonate sheets (cut to size by Omega) with white easyfix Clipglaze edging with toggles. The polycarbonate was supplied already cut to size by Omega based on measurements the Barrett Crosses had given. Omega were happy to advise on how to measure up. The  Clipglaze edging comes with fitting instructions and they found it easy to cut with heavy-duty scissors

Mr Barrett Cross says;“  I thought you would be interested in seeing the difference in temperature that the Clipglaze secondary glazing has made.  There is 10° difference between the 2 thermometers.  This was taken on Sunday 07/02/2021 during the beast from the east snow event in Surrey.
