Why Choose Magnetite Retrofit Double Glazing
Noise Reduction: Reduce Noise by up to 70%
Noise in residential and commercial areas can cause sleep loss, stress, poor health, and an unpleasant home environment. Whether it is traffic, aircraft, railway, construction, neighbours or nearby commercial buildings, Magnetite’s retrofit double glazing can minimise the noise travelling through your windows, doors and sky lights. As a secondary window system, Magnetite creates a large air cavity to buffer against noise. Our magnetic seals reduce draughts, which also conduct noise. This creates a home or office free from outside distraction and disturbance.
Tests by the National Acoustic Laboratory have proven that installing the Magnetite system can reduce noise through an existing window by up to 70%. Call GuardRight today to find out more.
