Magnetglaze Pro is a secondary glazing insulation system that combines the simplicity of magnetic fixing with the pleasing appearance of neatly mitred plastic capping. It is suitable for internal use on fixed window frames and surrounds, with 2, 3 or 4mm plastic sheet - we do not recommend using glass with magnetic products for safety reasons. Steel tape sticks to the window frame, on which is attached the rigid PVC capping, by means of the magnetic tape that is already stuck on. No special tools are required, and the resulting Magnetglaze Pro frame is neat and smart when accurately mitred, using the mitre bead provided.
Installation is simple, and is described in the above video or step-by-step in the PDF on this page. Clean and degrease the window surround using Surface Preparation Wipes for maximum adhesion, and simply slot the mitre bead into the Magnetglaze Pro strip before cutting.
Where your windows are very large, particularly draughty or you want the comfort of more aggressive grip from your magnets, have a look at new Magnetglaze Pro Extreme. This is also a smart capping for the sheet edges, but uses 25.4mm wide magnets and steel. It is designed for 4-6mm thick plastic sheet, which has the added benefit of making a more rigid pane.
Panels using Magnetglaze Pro can be jointed using our new Magnetglaze Sash Heavy Duty kits. Used with 4mm sheet only, these provide a rigid sealed joint for the convenience of 2 pane windows.
For installations of Magnetglaze Pro, some customers use the insulation for most of the year but then leave it off for the summer, or during day or night for ventilation purposes. A new add-on product is now available, Magnetglaze Flyscreen, which comprises magnetic and cosmetic edging strips with a discreet grey mesh, to allow insect, bug and creepy crawly free ventilation, using the existing steel strips already on your window surround.
The Magnetglaze Pro system allows instant insulation or access to the window. If using a large glazing sheet, or to eliminate the risk of any slippage, the frame can be supported by a couple of screws placed into the window frame immediately underneath. If the magnetic fixing system without the additional plastic capping is required, click through for our Magnetglaze Secondary Glazing page.
Please note that as Magnetglaze Pro purchases already include the magnetic and steel tape they use, you do not need to order Magnetglaze packs for use with them.
