Retrofit Double Glazing Windows

Retrofit double glazing in Perth



Not all homes are designed equal. If yours has standard windows and doors and you dream of increasing your level of comfort, then consider the retrofit double glazing windows Perth homeowners have trusted for more than 10 years.

Magnetite is an award-winning product designed to improve the window glass, frame and seal, therefore taking the whole window performance to a new level. Unlike the typical window screens that make your home darker, Magnetite retains natural light and allow you to enjoy the view.

Although the windows remain clear, the retrofit double glazing system enhances your thermal comfort during summer and winter, therefore increasing the energy efficiency of your home. It also reduces airborne noise coming from outside, making it suitable for homes next to busy roads or the ocean.

When you’re ready to install Magnetite, we customise our solution to solve the specific issue you’re currently facing with your home, whether that’s noise from free-way traffic or you want to reduce sun glare.

This retrofit double glazing solution is perfect for:

  • Heritage or historic homes
  • Strata villas, units and apartments
  • Busy urban areas
  • Medium to high density housing
  • Houses on the beach or next to rivers
  • Homes in the hottest and coolest parts of WA


magnetite double glazing systemHow Magnetite Fits Onto Your Existing Windows.

Magnetite is a smart retrofit double glazing system that’s seamlessly fitted without the need to replace the windows or make any structural changes to them. It can be installed on timber, aluminium and steel window frames.

Because the material weighs half the weight of glass, the installation is relatively quick, safe and easy. A Magnetite specialist attaches a slimline foam PVC frame to the inside of each window. This frame allows the clear optical-grade acrylic panel to attach to the window. The panel has a magnetic edging which creates an air-tight seal to prevent it from falling off. The gap between the acrylic panel and the window creates an air cavity which, when combined with the tight seal, acts as an insulation barrier.

That’s how noise is reduced and temperature adjusted.

Six Reasons To Use Magnetite?

  • Noise Reduction:

    If you live in a noisy area, Magnetite reduces the noise and turns your home into a peaceful environment. This way, you can sleep better, stress less and improve your health. Whether you live next to a main road, airport, construction site or footy oval, the retrofit double glazing and its magnetic seal will minimise any noise as it comes through your windows. It also reduces draughts which conduct noise. Your Magnetite specialist can also create a wider air cavity to boost the buffer.

  • Thermal Comfort:

    Comfy Temperature All Year Round

    For your general well-being, it’s recommended that you allow as much natural light as possible into your home. If your windows are not sealed properly, heat will escape through the gaps during winter and leak into your home during summer. The best solution is to install the Magnetite optical-grade acrylic glazing. It’s guaranteed to be six times more thermally efficient than glass.

  • Energy Efficiency: :

    Minimised Energy Use

    Magnetite helps you to increase the energy efficiency of your home, turning it into a greener home immediately. You’ll rely less on gas and electricity to heat and cool your home. You can play a greater role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and conserving energy usage. The bonus? You save more money on your energy bills!

  • Fits Existing Frames:

    Retrofit Double Glazing

    Whether it’s a window, door or skylight, the Magnetite double glazing system will fit. We customise the sizes and shapes to make it air tight when installed, and choose a colour that matches the window. There’s no need to replace your window. The sub frame will blend with the panel as one as they’re fitted into the existing window. As such, they won’t affect its appearance. The magnetic seal makes it easy for you to clean the window or take the panel off to let some air in.
