Magnetite – Retrofit Window Double Glazing
Double glaze existing windows to reduce noise and improve thermal comfort. 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’s retrofit system allows existing windows to be converted to a double glazed system, providing the benefits of double glazing without the need to replace the existing window. It has been designed and tested to work with your existing windows, doors, skylights and glass areas.
Magnetite is fitted to the inside of the windows, adjacent the window frame.

Helps reduce heat loss through your windows, keeping you warm in Winter and cool in Summer.
Reduces the need to turn up the air conditioner or heater, reducing energy use & saving on energy bills.
Custom fit to the shape and style of the window, ensuring optimal performance and aesthetics.
The Magnetite Double Glazing Retrofit
Installation of a discreet subframe allows a clear optical grade acrylic panel to attach inside the existing window frame. Continuous magnetic channels creates a secure and airtight seal around the window.
The continuous magnetic seal creates an air cavity between the existing window and your Magnetite panels. As with traditional double glazing the air cavity acts as an insulation barrier against noise and temperature. Depending on the configuration of the existing window, we can adjust the size of the air cavity to maximise thermal insulation, acoustic insulation or both.
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.
