What is the most suitable product for installing retrofit double glazing on my windows?
A and B magnetic systems are ideal for attaching two non-magnetic surfaces such as window frames (wooden/aluminium) and acrylic panels to create retrofit double glazing.
A and B matched tape systems are designed to work together as a pair, they bond together by attracting to the opposite magnetic poles. The tape comes with adhesive on the back which is on the opposite side to its A or B partner tape. This ensures correct pole alignment when the tapes are used to bond two different surfaces together ie; one surface with A and the other surface with B.
Acrylic sheeting is a heavy material and care should be taken to ensure thicker sheets are installed in such a way as to allow for the window sill to bear the actual weight of the sheet and the magnetic tape serves simply holds it in place.
Make sure the frame and the acrylic are clean before attaching the tape, for step-by-step instructions please click Here.
