Due to the complexity of the windows with an arch at the top as well as being quite large in size, Magnetite’s retrofit double glazing was found to be the most effective way to achieve the desired result. Magnetite panels are custom made to suit a variety of shapes, retaining the aesthetic of existing windows which are often critical to the character of a house.

The works
Magnetite’s EasyGlide system was retrofitted into one large aluminium sliding window with an arch at the top. This model allows for a convenient, easy way to open and close windows. Magnetite’s 10mm thick acoustic panel was used to provide maximal noise reduction particularly given the low frequency noise from the railway. The air gap between the primary and secondary window panes was maximised for the best possible noise reduction while still set flush with the surrounding wall for an aesthetically pleasing finish.

In order to make the bedroom more sound proof, seals were installed on the front and garage doors right next to the bedroom, which further improved the outcome.

Dollars and Sense
Following the installation, the customer confirmed their satisfaction and was very impressed with the noise reduction. The addition of Magnetite’s retrofit double glazing has made a quiet and peaceful night’s sleep possible regardless of being just metres away from railway.

Tairua Beach House

Primary Concern:


Magnetite Easyglide 4.5mm


Tairua, The Coromandel

After hearing about Magnetite on local radio, this customer contacted our Hamilton office, to find a solution to the heavy condensation in her Tairua beach house.

The crying windows were damaging the gorgeous view of the Coromandel's east coast and were often dripping water onto her floor. Magnetite windows solved this problem, reducing condensation and providing thermal comfort as well as retaining the beautiful views.

Magnetite glazing panels were installed to insulate the skylights, as well as the bedroom window, which also had the Easyglide system added. That meant she had a convenient, easy way to open the window for fresh air. Another happy customer who was very happy with the results.
