How do I measure my windows for Ecoease glazing? Do I need to allow for the edging strips?
Follow our easy measuring guide to get the sizes you need overall. We will make any adjustments depending on the type of panel you require.
I only use inches, how do I convert this to millimetres?
With our easy to use converter. Simply type your size in inches and click ‘calculate’ – this will give you the size in millimetres. Use the calculator below to convert inches into millimetres.
Can I remove my Ecoease secondary glazing and replace it easily?
Yes, the panel is held on by a magnetic edging strip which has a thin white painted steel strip attached to it magnetically. The white steel strip is self-adhesive and this is what remains on your window frame when you remove the panels in summer. The panels can then be easily put back up onto the magnetic strips.
How wide is the edging strip?
The edging strip is 18mm wide.
How thick is the clear PET?
It is 3mm thick.
What if I have dark stained wood window frames?
You would use our dark brown magnetic tape. This sticks straight onto the clear PET panel and shows through as a dark brown line. The opposing magnet on your window frame is also dark brown. The tape is 13mm wide ( ½”). Please see the fitting guide for more information.
I have handles on my windows which stick out over where the clear panel would sit. Can I still use your product?
Unfortunately not. It’s one problem we haven’t found an answer to………………yet.
How can I get rid of condensation?
Condensation is caused by warm humid air hitting a cold surface. It then reaches what is known as a dew point and the moisture in the air condenses onto the cold surface. PET is an inherently warm material and the warm air does not therefore reach the point where condensation is formed. It may be of interest to know that we originally developed this product to save energy costs, but now 60% of our sales are to prevent condensation.
Does Ecoease solve draughts?
We have had feedback from customers who say that their Ecoease panels have helped with draughts but this is an added bonus when draughts are not severe. Ecoease is not a draught-proofing product and, like any form of secondary glazing, works much better if you draught-proof your original windows first.

What is the maximum recommended size for an Ecoease secondary glazing panel?
The maximum recommended size for an Ecoease panel is 2m x 1.2m. There are two factors to consider above this size. The weight of the sheet will make additional support necessary. This can be in the form of a batten to reduce the unsupported sizes or with glazing clips around the perimeter. The second factor is that the panel will want to expand and contract in the heat and cold. Above this size, as cold air hits it from the glass side and warm air hits it from the room, it cannot move enough as the magnets are holding it in place, and so the panel can creak. Depending on the room this might not be a problem but needs to be borne in mind.
