It’s now easier than ever for Hunter residents to access superior and more affordable double glazing for their windows, with Magnetite launching a permanent presence in Newcastle.

After 15 years of servicing the Newcastle area from the Central Coast – and in response to increasing demand – Magnetite Franchisee, Barry Clendenning, has decided to open a display at the Housing Industry Association’s (HIA) Home Inspirations Centre in Mayfield West.

“With the ever increasing awareness of double glazing, it makes sense to show the entire range of Magnetite in the one place,” Mr Clendenning said.

“Customers can now see each window type we offer. The display has a noise box that allows you to hear the difference that Magnetite makes.

According to Barry, he is also preparing a thermal display so customers will be able to feel how Magnetite limits heat transfer and reduces air infiltration.

Four years ago, Mr Clendenning installed Magnetite at New Lambton’s Blackbutt Hotel for business owners, Terry and Troy O’Connor, as part of their renovations, with excellent results.

“We wanted quiet, comfortable rooms, even with the band playing downstairs,” Troy O’Connor said.

“Magnetite was an obvious choice that has paid off – the testimonials [from our customers] are proof of that. We even had it installed at home.” The Blackbutt is ranked at 2 in Newcastle for quality accommodation in the B&B category, on

Magnetite is a retrofit double glazing system that gives windows both acoustic and thermal insulation. It works by adding a secondary glazing layer to an existing window, which means you receive all the benefits of double glazing, without the hassle and expense of replacing your windows. This provides a cost effective solution for noise reduction, thermal comfort and energy efficiency in your home or office.

Visit Barry at the Home Inspirations Centre in Mayfield West this Saturday from 10am for the Hunter Building and Renovation Show, to experience Magnetite for yourself and arrange a free in-home assessment.

Come and see our demonstration this Sunday, 15th September 2013 at 11am.
