Our retrofit double glazing can reduce noise by up to 70% through your existing windowWindows are the greatest conductors of noise in a building. As high density living continues to increase, the noise from roads, neighbours, hotels and aircraft impact our quality of life. In residential areas, noise pollution can affect your comfort, property value and health.

Buildings require acoustic insulation to maintain consistent internal environments, or prevent loud inside noise traveling outside. Retrofit double glazing is a simple and affordable way to solve combat noise problems.
There are several ways that noise travels through windows, including:
- Vibrations conducts noise through closed windows leading to increased internal noise.
- Air infiltration between window join and poor seals contribute to noise seeping into your home or building.
Our Magnetite SolutionOur retrofit system is unique and designed specifically as an interior, secondary system. We attach a clear, optical grade, acrylic glazing panel to the interior of your existing window, using magnetic seals. This creates an airtight cavity between the window and your Magnetite system.
The air cavity acts as an insulation buffer against noise transference and the seals reduce air infiltration and drafts, which conduct noise. This reduces outside distractions and disturbance, creating a comfortable indoor environment. More Info on How Magnetite Works.
