Ultimate Guide to Install Removable Magnetic Window Insulation

What impact would removable magnetic window insulation have on your home’s comfort level? How reliable are magnetic seals and compression seals on storm windows?

Removable Magnetic Window Insulation

For a magnetic seal to develop, something needs to be grabbed by the magnets first. For example, your window frame has something permanently fastened; typically, this is a metal bracket attached to the whole window frame and requires several holes to be bored into it. Installing it is, therefore, difficult.

Second, removable window insulation is unsightly, both with and without the window insert. Third, even if you remove the window insert, a sizable metal bracket still surrounds your window.

Third, acrylic, typically used for window inserts, changes size in response to temperature. The metal frame is immobile, but the window insert and any associated magnets move. The panel can now pop off since whatever magnetic seal there may have been compromised.

Magnets only draw in one direction, but spring force is produced around the window frame using compression tubes. It provides friction and resistance to air pressure while absorbing expansion and contraction in all directions.

Window Insulation Kit

Kits for insulating windows are cheap to save energy and stop drafts in your house. In addition, they are a fantastic alternative to replace old, inefficient windows if you cannot afford to replace them.

Most removable window insulation kits operate in the same way: to add a layer of insulation, you attach a sheet of heat-shrinkable plastic or another insulating material to the window panes using double-sided tape or magnetic strips.

The finest insulating kit for windows is simple to install and works well as a draft-sealing barrier. Since windows with insulation treatment often cannot be opened, these kits are a seasonal fix for drafty windows.

How to Install Removable Magnetic Window Insulation?

A transparent optical quality acrylic panel may be attached inside the existing windowsill utilizing continuous magnetic channels, ensuring a secure and airtight seal around the window after installing a covert Magnetite subframe.

No operating window has a lower air penetration rate than a double-glazed window insulation system. Since you can easily remove the magnetic window insulation between the Magnetite panels and the existing window, installation of the Magnetite panels is simple.

The air cavity is an insulating barrier against noise and temperature, similar to typical double glazing. We can modify the size of the air cavity to maximize thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, or both, depending on the design of the current window.

Foam PVC makes up the Magnetite subframe, a thermal barrier between the primary Magnetite system and the installed window. This sub-frame enables Magnetite to be attached to any preexisting window frame, whether made of steel, aluminum, or wood.

Magnetite’s acrylic glazing panels have a thermal efficiency of up to six times greater than glass. Additionally, solar control films can be used on windows to reduce radiant heat. But first, we cover the inner layer of the already-existing glass with a movie.

For optimal effectiveness, we can reflect the heat before it enters the air cavity by placing the film inside the existing window.

For your existing windows or doors, magnetic window insulation is available in three models: the Magnetite Classic, which has removable panels and is ideal for double-hung and timber windows. The Magnetite Easyglide is perfect for sliding windows and ease of use, and the Magnetite Slider is best for more oved windows and sliding doors.
