London hotel continues to make rooms more comfortable with secondary glazing

The Arch London is a majestic boutique Hotel situated in one of the most distinctive of London districts, Marble Arch. The hotel cleverly blends Georgian architecture and inspired contemporary touches.

It preserves many of the original period features, but also incorporates some very contemporary designs with stunning artworks from rising British talents. RDD Interior Architectural Design finished this stunning refurb in 2009 and as part of the upgrade; Selectaglaze was consulted to enhance the hotel’s sound and ethical environment protocols.

Selectaglaze had previously installed 40 secondary glazing units to guestrooms and suites overlooking Great Cumberland Place utilising a combination of its Series 20 and Series 90 heavy duty vertical sliders. Once again, the hotel’s requirements were to improve the standards of energy and noise insulation, particularly to the suites at the front of the building.

The latest installation included Series 60 tilt-in vertical sliders fitted in rooms on the third and basement floors. This bespoke unit has tilt-in panels which is useful when windows have unequal pane sizes or if frames are needed to fit close together. On the fifth floor, rooms were treated with the Series 10 2 pane horizontal sliding unit; a slim and versatile system that provides easy access for cleaning, as well as for ventilation.

All units were finished in white and matched to the existing frames. The new secondary glazing will now help lower energy bills and afford the guests a good night sleep, in the heart of the metropolis.

Ray Goertz, General Manager says:

“At The Arch London, our goal is to provide the most comfortable and enjoyable stay to all our valued guests. We had to look no further than having Selectaglaze assist us in realizing our goal by adding more secondary glazing to some of our rooms, both to cancel out noise ingress and also to prevent heat loss. We are extremely happy with the results and wouldn’t hesitate recommending Selectaglaze.”

Founded in 1966 and a Royal Warrant Holder since 2004, Selectaglaze has gained a reputation as a leading secondary glazing specialist, creating sensitive designs with low visual impact.
