Just a quick note to say ‘thank you’ for installing the ‘Sound Aluminium System’ windows in my new apartment – they are wonderfully effective!
When I purchase my new unit I didn’t think the noise was too bad, but decide to have the secondary windows installed in both bedrooms as they faced the noise from the traffic and late night revellers. The difference was immediately noticeable – I am now disturbed by the ticking clock in the kitchen! The noise level from outside has been greatly reduced.
I appreciate the professionalism of all staff involved with the purchase – from the free measure and quote to the final installation. I was kept informed the whole time and everyone was courteous and helpful. Everyone was prompt and they couldn’t have been more helpful or understanding.
I am so happy with the product that I am now having the same window system installed in the kitchen and lounge room to reduce the noise that travels down the side of the building.
Again, thank you for making this such an easy process and for a product I highly recommend.

"We are delighted with all aspects of the service we have received from Magnetite, from the initial consultation with Lindsay right through to the installation.
While our main reason for choosing Magnetite was to help keep out the cold, we have been very pleased with how effective it has been in helping to protect us from the heat. We have just been through a heat wave (including a 43 degree day) without air conditioning (apart from a fan). Our comfort level was much improved on what it was in pre-Magnetite days. And it looks good too! Bouquets all round for everyone at Magnetite and every success for the future!"

Firstly, I would like to compliment Magnetite on its fabulous retrofit system of double glazing and the seamless way in which it adapts to existing window systems. In particular, the highly professional installation achieved by Dyer and Dennis.
Their attention to detail and quality of the installation were far beyond my expectations and I am delighted with the outcome. Their work was faultless and their fastidious and methodical workmanship was most impressive. Similarly, their unobtrusiveness and the cleanliness maintained throughout the job were greatly appreciated, with all window furnishings excellently reinstalled on completion.
Your installers are a credit to your business and the standards you have obviously specified.
Our installation was primarily for thermal installation and we are hoping that the system delivers performance equal to the quality appearance already achieved.
Hi Magnetite Team,
Just wanted to express my thanks to your team for their professional, helpful and informative approaches in their quoting, telephone/ personal dealings, bookings, timeliness and actual installation process.
Congratulations, well done and thank you to Dominik, Craig, Sian and Michael.

"Thank you so much for our new windows, it has made a big difference sound wise. Also thank you for such terrific service, everything was finished when I was told it would be and everyone was great to deal with."
Elizabeth De Klijn, VIC
Our home was so cold we were seriously considering selling. We had magnetite installed on our most wind prone character windows in 2010. We were absolutely delighted with the reduction in noise and heat loss so ordered a bigger instalment when our budget allowed in 2011. Magnetite has proven a relatively affordable and extremely effective solution and our 1908 creaky old lady is now cozy and homey.

Hi Marg and Robert
I am absolutely delighted with my new double glazing. It has made such a difference to the noise level in my apartment. I could not believe last night that I noticed all sorts of different indoor sounds (water in sink, clicking of crockery) that are normally blocked out by my hearing because of the constant background noise within the city. I also noticed that the big lounge/dining area was warmer. Previously it was always cold in that part of my apartment but now it feels cosy and warm!
All the best
Sue from Melbourne
Thank you for your interest in how we are getting on with the Great Eastern Highway upgrade works, right on the hotel boundary.
I’m very glad we went ahead with installation of the Magnetite secondary glazing to the bedroom windows exposed to the highway. We have only had a few noise complaints, and given the nature and extent of the works that is very pleasing. The general traffic noise has been reduced considerably which will be an on-going benefit for us after the roadworks are complete.
We appreciate your efforts in scheduling the installation to fit in with our guest arrivals and departures thus creating minimal disruption to our business operations.

Magnetite was approached to offer an acoustic glazing solution to a Heritage Building with noise issues. From day one, the advice and service has been excellent, after hours works were performed cleanly, safely and efficiently and all installation dates promised have been delivered. The end result blends with the existing building fabric seamlessly. Given the chance, I would not hesitate to use the Magnetite range of products on my building projects again.

'Living just metres away from a busy container port and railway shunting operation, our job was always going to present a challenge for Magnetite. However as a result of excellent planning and workmanship by Scott, as well as the top class Magnetite product, it has worked completely as advertised. Noise from early morning trains and container unloading has been reduced by around 75% to a barely audible muffle. We couldn't be happier with the outcome'.

Further to our discussion and your request for feedback regarding the product and services your company provided via our head contractor Buildcorp for the recent dust and noise mitigation project in Maison Dieu. The Magnetite window panels supplied and installed as part of this project has achieved the expected results in minimizing the noise impact of our mine operations. The window paneling system can be retrofitted, without having to carry out major structural works which can be the case when having to replace windows and this helped to minimise the impacts to the building occupants. This also meant a lot less was needed to install, as work could be carried out in all weather situations.
Not only have we been able to address residents’ noise and dust concerns, I am extremely pleased with the cost benefit of using a retrofit system, compared to traditional double glazing. The thermal insulation benefits also have an impact which should result in less running costs for the air conditioning units we installed. We welcome the opportunity of working with you again on future projects. Thankyou!

"I would like to give your product a very large tick. I didn't realise how much outside noise we could hear until Magnetite was fitted. I must admit though the heat saving we are experiencing is incredible, and with the very low temperatures at the moment it was installed just in time. It has really made our home more comfortable this winter. I also found it is not noticeable when looking through the windows which I must admit was one of my fears. You just don't see it, such is the matching with the aluminium windows our home has.
I trust others are as happy as we are with the finished work."
Bev, Wellington NZ
Just a quick note to say thank you. We had your system installed in our house.
The three installers were fantastic. They were on time, efficient, tidy and very professional.
We appreciated the way they worked while in our home and were great representatives of your company
Kerrie, Gordon NSW
"We are very happy with Magnetite which you installed in our bedroom in February. The young men were very professional and they did a very neat job.
Magnetite achieved its purpose and we are very happy with it!"
Anne, Greenwich NSW
"Thanks so much! Great work! Will gladly recommend to others!"
Warren & Lenore, Rozelle NSW
"It is now over 6 months since my Magnetite Windows were installed in my bedroom. They immediately made a noticeable difference to the sound quality in the room, and I have slept better as a result.
All your staff, at each point of the sales and installation process were pleasant, co-operative, helpful and understanding.
The installation went without a hitch, and I am very pleased with the results.
Congratulations and Thank You."
Anna, Cammeray NSW
"Before Magnetite came to our rescue, we had to sleep with earplugs. We are astonished and delighted by the noise reduction in our apartment on a very busy road in Sydney. The service was fantastic and carried out efficiently, pleasantly and on time! Thank you."
B & M Etheridge, NSW
"We purchased magnetite as a simple and low cost solution to eliminating traffic noise. We have a federation house with wonderful picture windows and the double glazing option was not only prohibitively expensive but would have detrimentally altered the appearance of the windows. We have had the Magnetite windows installed for over 12 months now and we remain extremely happy with our decision. Not only have we solved our noise problem, we had the unforeseen benefit of reducing our heating and cooling costs by eliminating drafts through the house."
Paul & Katie, Mosman NSW
Thank you very much for the work very well done, the Magnetite provides amazing sound improvements, we had a very quiet night.
I don't need a sound test now, I am more than happy to recommend Magnetite to anyone as the best sound control system."
Kevin, Auckland, NZ
Just a quick note to say how wonderful the windows are. I expected an improvement, but the results just blow us all away!"
"The system is not only cheaper than standard double glazing, it also has the added advantage that the internal mount installation means that you not only insulate the glass panes, you also very effectively draft-proof the entire window.
Condensation problems have also been almost completely eradicated.
We now live in a house where we can pull the thermal curtains in the morning and enjoy what little winter sunlight is around, without feeling like we are throwing money out the windows trying to keep the house warm.
The panels are quite unobtrusive to look at, easy and convenient to move.
The Magnetite guys have also been wonderful with the installation - quick and friendly.
I have already recommended this insulation system to several friends and family and would have no problem giving 100% approval."
R Leahy, New Zealand
"Great product! Excellent for sound reduction and temperature control and far less expensive than standard double glazing"
"It is refreshing to see a company that places high emphasis on customer service, both before and after the sale. With regards to the product I am very happy, and have noticed a substantial reduction in noise."
"Since having the Magnetite installed on all the windows of our unit facing a street of continuing traffic of cars, trucks and buses, the noise level has been significantly reduced...The appearance of the Magnetite is neat and easily operated...The two workmen who installed the windows were cheerful, well-mannered and did a very good job."
Mr & Mrs Wu, NSW
"We would like to thank you and the employees of Magnetite for their recent installation at our premises. At all times we found Magnetite to be courteous and efficient and the job was carried out with the minimum of disruption to our staff and procedures. We would not hesitate in recommending your services to other customers."
Magna Systems & Engineering
"A big thank you for all your professional and courteous service from start to finish...We've had the bedrooms in our unit fitted out with the Magnetite system, and it's the best investment I've done to the place. It's significantly reduced the noise ie traffic, trains and noisy neighbours. Another improvement we've found with the system is that it's also made our rooms warmer in this cold weather. I thoroughly recommend to people and friends to consider such a system."
John, Sutherland NSW
"I am thrilled! Thank you very much. The outside noise has definitely been cut down by I would say, at least 70%. I am also thrilled with the expertise and professionalism..."
Janine, Wollstonecraft NSW
"We would like to thank you for your wonderful product. Since the installation to our bedroom windows we have both found it easier to sleep...We would highly recommend your company and this product to anyone having insulating problems and would also highly recommend your staff who were friendly, prompt and efficient.
Thanks Magnetite, we really did receive value for money."
Boyce & Brigitte

Tracy & Mark, Darlinghurst NSW
"You have greatly enhanced our sleep at night, increased our comfort in winter, and reduced our heating bills!"
Bill, Lindfield NSW
"The road noise has been cut down by at least 80%! We did not find Magnetite too expensive in comparison with other double glazing products."
Kerry, Wollongong NSW
"Thank you for following through with your product and expertise...
It's made a huge difference and I'm sure you will have more to do in my building."
"Wow, what a difference! I can't thank you enough for making my nights more peaceful.
What a genius invention, not to mention the fast installation."

I would recommend it without reservation."

"Since the Magnetite was installed, we can now enjoy peace and quiet.
We believe it was a very good investment and recommend this product to others who have a similar problem with noise."
Mr & Mrs Bell, NSW

"The service provided by your staff was excellent."
Bertha, Mosman NSW
"From the beginning Magnetite was nothing short of best service, best product, and best price.
Now we have better sleep, not just from the dramatically reduced noise and eliminated drought from the original windows, but also knowing that we made the right choice."
Faz & Hiroko
"The noise reduction is amazing - for the first time ever I didn't hear the garbage collector early Tuesday morning."
Stephen, Naremburn NSW
"Thank you so much. The change your windows have made to my life is extraordinary."
Christine, Potts Point NSW
"We wish to express our thanks for recently completing an inside window insulation for a flat that we manage on a major roadway in Sydney. The tenant had been there 12 months and never slept in the front room due to road noise. He now can use that room which is most pleasing to him & the landlord has a far more marketable property for the future."
First National Real Estate
"A brief note to say thanks for finally allowing us the pleasure of a peaceful night's sleep. Our Victorian terrace house, although being charming and centrally located had one downside - busy street frontage...I have no hesitation in speaking on behalf of this product because I know it works. We can finally catch up on the sleep we've been missing."
Tony, Crows Nest NSW
"I am happy to confirm that the noise level has been reduced considerably. I am also delighted that the installation of the panels over the existing windows is discreet and in no way diminished the aesthetics of the windows."
"Not only has it cut down the noise, it also acts as insulation, it looks good and it is very practical."
Myrena & Antoine
"With Winter now upon us we have found that the glazing has worked very well - no more drafts around the windows!"
"Love the system"
