Re: Re: Irish say no to PVC windows
Yes, secondary glazing certainly can work quite well. A goodexample would be the former ICS building at the junction of Westmoreland and D’Olier Streets.
Inside it has impressive timber frames independent of the main windows that aren’t that visible from outside.
Also they’re not plastic :rolleyes:
Indeed they’re well carved as I remember, with attractive metal catches and little handles, all of which open inwards in casement style. They look so sensitive they might even be original.
I imagine their purpose is as much to do with blocking out the traffic noise as it is for insulation.
