How Magnetite window system is retrofitted
The continuous magnetic seal ensures that when the Magnetite panels are in place the double glaze 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.
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.
