March 15, 2018
Great Northern Insulation has recently started retrofitting windows with MAGNETITE. It lets you keep the original look and appeal of your existing windows but gives you the benefits of new windows. All at a cost that will make you and your investors happy.
Benefits of Window Retrofits in Toronto are Wide-Ranging
If you’re considering window retrofits in Toronto, then you likely have some structural issues or performance problems that need to be addressed. In commercial applications, window retrofits carry a number of dramatic improvements, and with the initial investment cost being significantly lower than window replacements, retrofits become a smart alternative. As a window retrofit solution, MAGNETITE window systems have proven effective for a wide range of commercial applications – from hospitals, to hotels, to schools, to office buildings.
Sound Proofing and Sound Reduction
Exterior windows conduct a high level of noise pollution. With MAGNETITE window retrofits, the “double-glazing” solution serves to reduce noise and provide soundproofing. When existing window systems are “single-glazed”, both air and noise can infiltrate. The MAGNETITE solution provides sealed windows with an insulated air cavity – both air and noise are blocked. The idea behind the retrofit is to create a “secondary system” that reduces noise transfer. MAGNETITE window retrofits are CSA® tested for practically zero air infiltration (and therefore sound).
Energy Conservation/Energy Savings
Exterior window glass can be the biggest point of energy loss in a building – and the most flagrant waste of heating and air conditioning. With MAGNETITE window retrofits in Toronto, energy loss is prevented and energy savings are optimized. The “double-glazing” solution is dramatic in terms of energy savings – a commercial building can recover initial upfront costs in a short amount time depending on the conditions of your original windows. With MAGNETITE windows, less energy is wasted and there is less demand on the HVAC system (heating and cooling). MAGNETITE is approved by CMHC (Canadian Mortgage and Housing).
Bottom line, with professional window retrofits in Toronto, the MAGNETITE system can deliver excellent return-on-investment. With every building being unique, MAGNETITE retrofits allow for a fully customized window system that’s designed to accommodate a long list of building needs. With energy savings, soundproofing, and enhanced indoor comfort, the patented MAGNETITE system delivers superior return-on-investment when compared to other options. An insulation representative from Great Northern Insulation will assess the project, recommend the best retrofit option, and guarantee the performance.

When it comes to window retrofits in Toronto, MAGNETITE is the ideal customized solution. The patented window-framing system can be effectively retrofitted on virtually any existing building window. MAGNETITE can be custom designed for any window shape and size, and each window is custom fitted to magnetically lock into place.
