Retrofit Double Glazing
Another option for improving energy efficiency in existing buildings is to install double glazing. Double glazing improves the insulation property of glazing. However, to replace existing glazing is a very expensive option. The Magnetite systems utilises the existing glazing and adds an inner glazed panel. This panel is made of polycarbonate and is light and easily fitted. This system avoids the waste and cost of total replacement while reducing energy costs. This option can be used in conjunction with window films to create a solution to manage both heat transmissibility and solar heat gain. Application Solutions is able to model various options using energy simulation software to optimise the cost/benefit in advance of committing to investments in building upgrades.
