Our retrofit double glazing can reduce noise by up to 70% through your existing window
Windows are the greatest conductor of noise in a building. As high density living continues to increase, the noise from roads, neighbours, hotels and aircrafts impact quality of life. In residential areas, noise pollution can affect your comfort, property values and health.
Commercial dwellings require acoustic insulation to maintain consistent internal environments, or prevent loud inside noise travelling outside. Retrofit double glazing is a simple and affordable way to solve noise problems.
There are several ways that noise travels through windows including:
• Vibrations from outside conduct acoustics through a closed window leading to increased internal noise
• Air infiltration between window joints and poor seals contribute to noise seeping into your home or building.
This means that to effectively reduce sound levels a window system should have minimal air infiltration and possess an insulating air cavity or enough weight to limit vibration.
Our Magnetite Solution
Our retrofit system is unique and designed specifically as an interior, secondary system. We attach a clear, optical grade, acrylic glazing panel to the interior of your existing window using magnetic seals. This creates an air tight cavity between the window and your Magnetite system.
The air cavity acts as an insulation buffer against noise transference and the seals reduce air infiltration and drafts, which conduct noise. This creates an environment free from outside distractions and disturbance. More Info on How Magnetite Works
Since 1998, we have developed a leading reputation in the noise abatement sector, including acting as a major subcontractor for residential noise projects such as Lane Cove Tunnel Noise Abatement, M7 and North West Connect projects in Sydney. We are also an approved product for the Sydney Airport Noise Insulation Project (SANIP) and Roads and Traffic Authority noise abatement works. Our franchises around Australia have worked on many noise abatement projects as well as insulating thousands of homes along busy roads, next to railways, or noisy neighbours.
Tests by the National Acoustic Laboratory have proven that installing the Magnetite system can
reduce noise through an existing window by up to 70%. Technical Data and Results
