Can Magnetite windows be used on the inside of a skylight well to block the noise?

Magnetite interior windows (using acrylic) are thin (3/32") in order to fit into the Magnetite edge strips.  For a skylight you can install an acrylic sheet of up to 3/8".  Install in a frame or use steel mounting strips and magnetic tape (self-adhesive) on the acrylic.  Using the thicker acrylic will give mech better results.  Be sure to caulk all around the edges with acoustic caulk so that no sound "leaks" around the edges.
