    Secondary Glazing Questions 9th Mar 18 at 8:34 AM

    I have 2 bedroom windows that face the street and it gets noisy from 6am. I currently have double glazed windows. The windows are 900x1500mm.

    I am thinking of secondary glazing as a simple DIY option.

    My questions are:
    1. Polycarbonate vs Acrylic for the sheet
    2. How thick should it be, 3mm is half the price of 5mm
    3. The gap would be 115mm is that too much?

    thank you
