How to go about this project?
« on: July 14, 2015, 12:14:49 AM »

Hello. I live in a high rise condo with large double pane windows with aluminum frames (images attached). I am thinking of adding another layer of windows to help reduce the train noise. I am trying to determine if the mangeite solution will work or are my windows too large? Should I get them in 4 pieces (per the window frames) and install them flush or inside the frame? Or should I get two large pieces that can sit on the floor for weight purposes? Whats the maximum thickness I should opt to?

Trying to opt for a DIY solution as I have two rooms (with exact same dimensions) to cover.

Could I please get some advice on the best way to go about this project? The main constraints are that I am not allowed to drill into the existing aluminum frame and that the bottom right window remain operable or accessible. The approximate entire 4 window system size is 100" tall x 90" wide

Thank you

Randy S

Width x Height in inches

Top Left box: 46x74
Top Right box 46x74
Bottom Left Box: 46x20
Bottom Right Box: 46x20

the frame between the boxes is about 3.5" thick

Ok, you might be able to pull this off...
Our magnaseal system will allow you to remove panes when needed and you should be using 3/8" acrylic.

Now since you can not drill holes we are going to have to get tricky for the frame installation.

lets discuss what can be done.
Call me direct.
