Our retrofit double glazing can provide noise reduction through your existing window of up to 70%Windows are typically the greatest source of noise penetration in a building. In residential areas, noise pollution caused by traffic, trains, neighbours or aircraft can seriously affect your comfort, health and property value. In commercial buildings external noise can disturb concentration and affect the efficiency and quality of work performed.
Soundproofing windows is a reliable way to reduce noise and regain comfort. The most effective way to achieve effective noise reduction for windows is to add a secondary system that stops air leaks and has a large air cavity to buffer the noise.
Magnetite’s retrofit double glazing systems provide effective noise reduction for windows in your home or office. Both Magnetite® and Soundtite are designed to maximise the acoustic air cavity, minimise the noisy air leaks and come in various thicknesses to soundproof against vibration. Magnetite’s secondary glazing systems are designed to be installed on the inside of the window sill. Virtually invisible from outside, our solutions can tackle the noise by soundproofing window by window or reduce noise in the whole house by coordinating larger jobs. This makes Magnetite’s solutions ideal for strata units, semi-detached or stand-alone homes as well as office environments.
