When a window is damaged, be it broken glass or the window frame, our professional local Highbury glaziers are only a short distance away to fix the problem. We can also modernise your existing frames with more efficient window styles including double glazing, aluminum replacement windows and Low - E Glass.
For Highbury shop front windows we would use laminate glass, which conforms to BS 6206. Large and/or thicker than normal panes will usually be a next day service, dependant on glass dimensions. Our Highbury double-glazed units take approximately two to three days to order, and all our units come with a manufacturers guarantee.

Low Emissivity Glass
We recognize that a well-insulated home can save money on heating, so we offer “Low e” glass (sometimes referred to as “K” glass) for customers that are looking to lower their home heating bills by retaining more heat in their house.
Low Emissivity glass is only available for double-glazed windows, but can be supplied with either normal or toughened glass. This feature is provided using a metal-oxide layer that reduces the infrared radiation transferred between the cold and warm panes of glass.
This type of glass results in an approximate reduction of energy loss by around 30-50% over non-treated glass. Low E glass comes in a choice of two types of coating. “Soft-coat” is applied between panes of a double-glazed unit, because it is easily damaged, and it degrades when exposed to air.
“Hard-coat” can be applied to existing glass installations, and is more durable than “soft-coat”, although the performance compared to it is inferior.
