Magnetite double glazed windows in Perth specialise in acoustic and thermal solutions for existing windows and doors. Our solutions allow homeowners and commercial property owners to enjoy all the benefits of double glazing without having to replace the existing windows. Retrofit double glazing Perth converts a single glazed window into a double glazed window, which means that instead of replacing all your windows, our system fits to your existing windows. Our system is installed to the inside of the windowsill, creating an air cavity between your existing window and the Magnetite system which acts as an insulation barrier against noise and temperature..

What Are Double Glazed Windows?
Although they have been around for quite some time, many people are still not completely sure what they are. Double glazing refers to windows with two layers of glazing separated by an air cavity. This is also referred to as an Insulated Glass Unit or IGU. The gap between the panes is normally filled with still air, which acts as the buffer unit against noise and temperature extremes. As the extra layer of glazing and air gap takes up more space a heavier duty frame or adapter is required for double glazed windows. The frame can be made of wood, metal, or uPVC (heavy plastic). Retrofit double glazing is the process of adding another layer to the existing window to create a double glazing system. This is often more effective than replacement windows as the air cavity can be increased for better performance.
Can Double Glazing Help to Keep My Home Cool in the Summer?
Absolutely, yes. Our Perth retrofit double glazed windows offer Magnetite® which uses an optical grade acrylic glazing that is up to 6 X more thermally efficient and up to 18 X stronger than glass. These features allow Magnetite® to help maintain a comfortable room temperature for year round thermal comfort. To further reduce the heat in summer, we offer Solartite window films, to transform your standard glass window to a high performance double glazed window.
Will Double Glazed Windows Keep My House Warmer in the Winter?
Magnetite® patented framing creates a thermal break from your existing frame while its airtight magnetic seals eliminate draughts. Our retrofit double glazing windows will keep you warm during winter in Perth. In addition to making your home more comfortable, Magnetite double glazing Perth converts your window into the best energy efficient window for winter performance, helping you save on energy bills.
Can Double Glazed Windows Reduce Noise from Outside?
Our window installation Perth team have installed retrofit double glazing in Perth for many property owners who wished to reduce the outside noise through their windows and doors. The soundproofing performance of double glazed windows usually depend on the thickness of the glazing and the depth of air cavity between the two panes. Generally, the larger the air cavity, the better the noise reduction.
