Solution(s)
Magnetite 4.5mm

Location:
Eltham VIC

Situated 25 km away from Melbourne's CBD, Eltham has been acclaimed by many for its greenery and peaceful environment.  Its serenity has comforted the community in their busy lives for years. Despite Eltham's sensational offerings, Victoria's extreme weather can make some homes uncomfortably cold in winter and hot in summer.  Magnetite Melbourne was called to improve the glazing performance in this beautiful sandstone house. Due to the complexity of the windows and skylights, which were large with multiple angles, the Magnetite system was determined the most effective way to achieve the desired result

The Magnetite Classic system was retrofitted under the large skylight panels. Due to the size a clear acrylic stiffening bar was attached to give the panels support without interrupting the flow and aesthetics of the roof design. The floor-to-ceiling fixed windows were also treated in this family room. Magnetite’s 4.5mm acrylic glazing improved the thermal comfort of the room, keeping the room cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

This renovated home had a combination of fixed, sliding and awning windows. Magnetite's 4.5mm glazing panels were installed to the inside of the existing windows and doors in the bedroom and lounge. A Slider system was added to the sliding door which allows for convenient and easy access to open the door. To achieve the best thermal insulation result, Magnetite panels were attached directly to the timber face of the existing windows. This method allowed for an ideal air gap to maximize heat and cold insulation and also ensure adequate soundproofing. Our customer was very pleased with the result.

At the end of the job the customer was over joyed with the results and commended the team on their hard work rating his experience as “Excellent”.

In a follow up letter several months later the client again expressed their happiness with the work further stating.
Your Installation team demonstrated a very high degree of ingenuity and resourcefulness to complete the work, and their pleasant demeanor throughout reflected great credit upon themselves and the company.”
