Reduce outside noise by up to 70%
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.
Insulating your windows can decrease the chances of hearing impairment, hypertension, ischemic heart disease, annoyance, and sleep disturbance.

Reduce outside noise by up to 70% through your existing windows
Reduce Outside Sound. Due to the principals of glass, your windows are the greatest conductor of noise in a building. If your home or office is near a train, airfield or busy highway you are aware of noise pollution which can impact your quality of life. This also has a detrimental effect on your comfort, property value and health.
Magnetite Canada’s retrofit double glazing is a simple and affordable way to solve these noise problems.
How does noise travel through your windows?
- Sound vibrates from the outside which conducts noise leading to increased internal noise.
- Leaky windows and poor seals will cause air infiltration between window joints.
The key to reducing sound entering through a window is creating a dead air space between the existing glazing and the new interior glazing. This is the same process that airplanes use in their windows and why they are constructed this way. Similarly, Magnetite windows are made of 6mm acrylic which does not vibrate at the same frequency that glass does.
Magnetite Canada’s Answer
Our 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.
