Included in this $7m refurbishment project was window retrofit in the 12 new hotel rooms, to ensure absolute comfort for the guest. Preserving the character of the original heritage windows was a priority. The Carnegie group appointed Magnetite Perth to double glaze the existing heritage windows for soundproofing and thermal insulation, ensuring comfortable stay for the guest.
Magnetite Perth installed retrofit double glazing to all 12 rooms in level two and three facing High and Market Street. A 10mm optical grade acrylic was installed with a maximum air cavity to maximise noise reduction. Magnetite’s slim line frame allows the secondary double glazing system to blend in and retain the building’s façade while providing all year round comfort for the hotel guest.
Magnetite Australia is specialises in providing acoustic and thermal insulation for existing windows and doors. Our double glazing systems have been independently tested by the National Acoustic Laboratories and the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) in line with National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) regulations.
