Whether you’re in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Canberra or Adelaide, there’s little respite from the heat of the harsh Australian sun. The painfully apparent problem is that so many houses lack proper window insulation or have poor window thermal efficiency.
Glass windows and doors are gateways of heat transfer into and out of the home. Without proper window insulation, there’s not much stopping your home from experiencing a greenhouse effect.

With the development of new solutions, residents might not need to worry about this anymore. Magnetite and Solartite are the ideal solution to improve an existing window’s thermal insulation.

Magnetic Air-Tight Seal

This converts any single glazed window into double glazing which will drastically increase the window’s thermal insulation - largely because of its airtight magnetic seals that eliminate draughts

In fact, Magnetite’s seal creates the lowest air filtration rate of any secondary glazing option available. Being a secondary glazing, Magnetite’s installation can allow for an optimal air gap that acts as a buffer against heat, improving your window insulation. Think of this window thermal insulation like a refrigerator – the heat is kept out so that the inside stays nice and cool. This magnetic airtight seal is the best possible solution to improve thermal efficiency of any existing windows.

Thermal Efficiency

So, Magnetite is an innovative solution to window thermal insulation… What is it that makes it so? Magnetite uses optical grade acrylic, which is six times more thermally efficient and up to 18 times stronger than glass. This means not only are you getting superior window thermal efficiency, but your windows are far less likely to break, making them safer and more durable.

Say you don’t want to install a secondary glazing window insulation system though; is there another solution? Solartite is a solar control film which enhances an existing window’s thermal efficiency. Reducing radiant heat, Solartite is a must for window insulation where windows get direct sun and when double glazing is not an option for one reason or another.

Using Magnetite and Solartite for windows insulation

Solartite is applied to the existing window, while Magnetite installed to the inside of the existing windowsill. The result is a solution which powerfully improves window thermal insulation, keeping your home cool and pleasant. Also, the aesthetics of the existing window is enhanced with the addition of Magnetite and Solartite. The Magnetite Double Glazing Sydney team can give you expert advice on how to increase your windows’ thermal efficiency and beat the summer heat.

If you’re in Melbourne or Sydney during summer, temperatures can reach the high 30s and even 40. Canberra, Adelaide and Perth can cop even harsher heat with multiple days in the 40s. Blasting the AC is a go-to move, but it racks up the power bills. Taking advantage of window thermal insulation glazing and solar control films is a cost-effective and long-term solution to maintain maximum comfort.
