To reduce sound infiltration a window system should have minimal air infiltration, possess an insulating air cavity and have enough weight to limit acoustic vibration.
Insulating Windows double glazing retrofit system is unique and is designed specifically as an interior and secondary system. We magnetically attach a virgin acrylic grade glazing panel to the interior of your existing window. This creates an airtight cavity between the window and your Magnetite system.
The air cavity acts as an insulation buffer against noise transference and seals air infiltration and drafts, which cause noise. Our product has been CSA tested to allow virtually zero air infiltration.
