About Us

Magnetite specialises in providing acoustic and thermal insulation for existing windows. Our double glazing systems have been independently tested by the National Acoustic Laboratories and the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) in line with National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) regulations.

Magnetite® is an innovative technology that converts your existing single glazed windows into double glazing. The Magnetite system was developed over 25 years ago as an alternative to traditional double glazing.  Ben Lafleur and Adrian Lafleur begun the operations in 1998 and started delivering it to homes throughout Sydney.

Over the years Magnetite have added complementary products such as Soundtite - secondary aluminium window system, Solartite - window tinting and Sealtite - weather & acoustic window seals.  Our range enables us to Assess, Design and Deliver the best possible double glazing solution across a wide range of windows in homes or offices. Our purpose is defined by our motto, which is ADD Comfort.

By focusing on Comfort, Magnetite developed a leading reputation in both acoustic and thermal window insulation for residential and commercial buildings across Australia & New Zealand. With extensive knowledge and experience assessing glazing requirements, we customise glazing solutions to achieve the best results for our clients.

Community Involvement
We believe that giving back to our communities is good for the soul. As an organisation with a significant number of male staff members, Magnetite has been a long-standing supporter of Movember, a charity that helps raise awareness for men's health issues such as depression and prostate cancer. For 5 years, customers, staff, their families, and suppliers have helped with donations to raise funds and spread the word about men's health issues.

This year Magnetite is on board with Australian and World Champion Paratriathlete (PT5) Katie Kelly. Born with hearing loss and diagnosed with Usher Syndrome in her mid-20s, Katie competes in the PT 5 category for athletes with vision impairment. Despite a tough challenge, Katie is striving to keep doing the thing she loves doing. Inspired by her story, Magnetite is supporting Katie on her way to the 2016 Rio Paralympics.

Sustainable Building Practices
Our commitment to sustainability means we participate in Ecospecifier and Green Smart. We have an internal recycling plan for our materials which we extend to our clients to ensure that our windows are re-used or recycled rather than added to landfill.
