In 2018, 9.2 million overseas tourists visited Australia and it is projected to grow over 10 million this year. The rich art, multiculturalism and food not to mention the pristine beaches and amazing weather have provided a sensational experience for both local and international travellers for decades. The increasing number of tourists offers an enormous opportunity for the hospitality industry, creating a strong demand in Australia’s accommodation sector.

“Creating excellent customer experience” is one of key objectives for the hospitality industry, specifically for hotels. As customers' standard for "excellent experiences" is now higher than ever, it is not just a matter of free Foxtel or location that creates an excellent customer experience. Many hotels in busy major Australian cities such as Sydney, Perth or Melbourne have to contend with noise complaints from their customers, a by product of that excellent location. Noise from traffic, trains or passers-by can have negative impacts on customers sleep and comfort and can result in poor online reviews. As such, soundproofing has become one of the essential feature to look at when refurbishing or upgrading hotel rooms.
Magnetite at No Vacancy Expo 2019


Established in 1998, Magnetite has develop a reputation in soundproofing and thermal insulation for existing windows. As Robert H. Shuller affirmed, "Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines". With this regard, we offer a range of product to suit your glazing project requirement such as Magnetite - retrofit double glazing, Soundtite – secondary window and door system, Solartite – high performance solar films and Sealtite – acoustic and weather proofing seals. Our secondary glazing systems are installed on the inside of existing window sill, creating an air cavity, the essence of double glazing. The air cavity can be customised to address your concern, whether it is noise reduction or thermal insulation. Generally, a larger air cavity means a better noise reduction.

With over 20 years of experience in the glazing industry, Magnetite has been involved in numerous hospitality upgrade projects across Australia and New Zealand. A recent project was at the Rendezvous Studio Hotel, which is located at a busy intersection on Sydney's George St, just opposite Central Train Station. While the location is convenient, the hotel received numerous noise complaints due to the high amount of traffic and pedestrian noise from the busy street. Despite having old secondary glazing in some rooms, the performance was not satisfactory, and this left management in a predicament until Magnetite was considered for 119 windows. After the installation, the feedback from staff and management was that there was a huge, immediate impact on noise complaints, so much so that they are virtually eliminated.
