Reduce noise and improve thermal comfort with Magnetite
Double glazing can dramatically improve the comfort of a room, home or building by reducing the noise and creating a comfortable, stable indoor temperature. Magnetite® allows existing windows to be converted to a double-glazed system providing the benefits of double glazing without the need to replace the existing windows. The Magnetite® retrofit double glazing system is designed and tested to work with your existing windows, doors, skylights and glass areas.
How Magnetite® Works
Installation of a discreet Magnetite® subframe allows a clear optical grade acrylic panel to attach inside the existing windowsill, using continuous magnetic channels to ensures a secure and airtight seal around the window. The magnetic seal ensures that when the Magnetite panels are in place the double-glazed window insulation system has the lowest air infiltration rate of any operational window. This seal creates an air cavity between the existing window and your Magnetite® panels.
The Magnetite subframe is foam PVC and acts as a thermal break between the existing window and the Magnetite secondary system. This sub-frame also allows Magnetite to attach to any existing window frame - timber, aluminium, or steel. The acrylic glazing panels used by Magnetite are up to six times more thermally efficient than glass. Solar control films may also be applied to windows requiring reduction in radiant heat. We apply a film to the inside layer of the existing glass. By having the film on the inside of the existing window we are able to reflect the heat before it enters the air cavity for maximum performance.
Magnetite comes in three models to choose from to suit your existing windows or doors, the Magnetite Classic - removable panels which is ideal for double hung and timber windows, Magnetite Easyglide which is ideal for sliding windows and ease of use, and Magnetite Slider for larger windows and sliding doors.
