What Is Retrofit Double Glazing?

How MagicSeal's Retrofit Double Glazing Works

  • MagicSeal's double glazing, adhere to a base magnetic seal and can be removed easily.
  • They are installed internally onto existing window frames and there is no disruption to existing glass or window frames.
  • MagicSeal uses 3.0mm or 4.5mm cast optical grade acrylic and is warranted against crazing or discolouring for a period of 30 years.
  • MagicSeal's Retrofitted Double-Glazing is 11 times stronger than glass and does not shatter. It is manufactured from premium quality clear optical grade acrylic sheet, high performance high temperature plastics and strong quality magnets from Europe.

Double-Glazing Benefits

Energy Effeciency with Insulation

MagicSeal's thermal insulation, reduces the loss of heat by up to 54% because of the trapped insulating layer of still air between the glass and the MagicSeal retrofitted double-glazing panel. In other words the still air trapped between the two surfaces acts as an insulator. As a result your home will be a lot more energy efficient once MagicSeal's Retrofit Double-Glazing is installed. Double Glazed windows virtually pays for itself as you start to save on power bills the moment it's installed. Energy savings achieved by Retrofitting MagicSeal's Secondary Glazing can contribute to direct cost power savings up to 20%.

Acoustic Insulation for Quieter Living

For acoustic benefits MagicSeal's Secondary, Double Glazing is retrofitted to the existing windows in such a way as to maximize the air space between the pane of glass and acrylic double glazing. This acts as an insulation baffle, therefore reduce noise and the amount of sound transmitted through the single pane. Due to different types of material (retrofitting acrylic over glass) both panes vibrate and pass different frequencies at varying time intervals thereby damping down the noise waves. In other words both panes do not vibrate in sympathy as a double glass unit would. Therefore, MagicSeal's Retrofitted Double Glazing windows totally out performs a standard Double Glazing unit (DGU).

Condensation Control and UV Protection

MagicSeal's Retrofitted Secondary Double Glazing will reduce the amount of condensation occurring on your windows, preventing mould growth and protecting the health of your family. MagicSeal can help, as part of a holistic approach, to minimise the condensation on your windows, thus creating a warmer, drier home.
With the addition of State of the Art UV stabilizers MagicSeal's acrylic is like sun block for the windows. Retrofitting MagicSeal's Secondary Double-Glazing can block up to 80% of all UV radiation due to the UV inhibitors in the optical grade acrylic, whereas standard glazing glass will only block 30% of the sun's UV radiation.

Energy Efficient Glazing

MagicSeal's Retrofit Double Glazed unit, works just as effectively and energy efficiently in a cooling climate as it does in a heating climate. It can prevent the heat from coming in on a scorching hot summer day making your home more comfortable and reducing air conditioning costs. Alternatively, in winter it will still let as much of the sun's energy through the double glazing but traps and stops the warm air from escaping on cold evenings. MagicSeal significantly reduces convective and conductive heat loss by up to 54%, due to the trapped air between the retrofitted panel and glazing. So not only will MagicSeal reduce the energy bill within your home, but another important factor to consider here is the extra comfort and wellbeing of double glazed windows.
