Easyfix Clipglaze flexible secondary glazing system is simple to install and use, provides excellent heat and noise insulation, and has been made by Tubeway for well over 50 years. It comprises a flexible PVC capping channel that fits over the edge of the glass or plastic glazing sheet, the completed panel being fixed to the window frame or surround by turnbuttons that are screwed into place. These nylon clips can be rotated or removed to allow removal of the panel, for access to the outer window or cleaning, and making the Clipglaze system re-usable year after year.
Installation of the Clipglaze system is quick and easy, using standard household tools. Neat 45 degree mitres are made using the unique Mitre Gauge, giving a tidy appearance to the finished panel. See the video and PDF for detailed fitting instructions.
The Clipglaze system can be purchased in Clipglaze 15m and 5m Kits or as separate components in 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6mm sizes (each size clip is suitable for that thickness of sheet plus the edging strip). The "natural" coloured clips are a milky white, about 9.5mm wide at the base, and suitable for use with both the clear and the white edging strips. The flexible channels each provide around 10mm of coverage of the edge of the glazing sheet, providing an excellent thermal seal. For the 6mm edging, clips are only available in the Bulk Fixing packs, and not by the Dozen.
Please note that the flexible edging strip can kink and twist a little when being factory coiled. This does not affect proper installation of the strip on the sheet, and you can make the strip more pliable for use by placing in a warm area beforehand, such as an airing cupboard.
The products on this page can use glazing sheet of up to 6mm thick, which we are unable to provide. The One Stop Plastic Shop do offer this - they are an independent company with whom we have traded for many years. Click through for 6mm cut to size Polycarbonate or 6mm cut to size Acrylic if you want to buy direct from them.
