Magnetite manufactures and installs a retrofit double glazing window system that is designed to reduce noise, increase thermal comfort and create energy efficiency.
Magnetite’s system is an innovative technology that attaches an optical grade acrylic panel to your existing window using magnetic seals. It was first developed by an energy physicist, Kenneth Foster, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Centre for Innovation in 1981, as an alternative to traditional double glazing.
Our Canadian patent which includes a special patent for the installation technique is listed as (Canadian Patent Application Number 3,004,733)
Proven and Tested
Magnetite Canada Company Information
Our product has been independently tested by Exova laboratories for the Canadian Standards Association.
Magnetite® was developed by Kenneth J. Foster, an energy physicist, in conjunction with the M.I.T. Innovation Center in 1978. He was eventually granted U.S. Patent No. 4473980. Mr. Foster combined the concepts of using an acrylic window, like they use on jet airplanes, and a magnetic seal, which is how your refrigerator door stays both closed and air-tight, to create the most energy-efficient window on the market.
More than 37 years later, Magnetite® is still the best alternative!
What sets us apart
