Magnetite Retrofit Double Glazing was recently recognised as one of Australia’s most progressive organisations, winning the 2011 Australian Business Award for Product Excellence with its innovativewindow insulation solutions.

Now in its 6th year, the Australian Business Awards program were developed to acknowledge organisations that demonstrate the core values of business excellence, product excellence, corporate responsibility, sustainability and commercial success in their respective industries. In particular, the Product Excellence award recognises market-leading products or services that demonstrate overall product superiority.

Magnetite’s innovative window insulation solutions provide insulation from outside noise and heat or cold. Using ‘5-pole” magnets, an optical grade acrylic panel attaches to window frames creating an air tight cavity. The trapped air acts as an insulating buffer that protects against noise and helps to maintain a constant temperature within the home. The panels are unobtrusive, easily removed for maintenance and available in a range of colours to complement the window.

Adrian Lafleur, Magnetite Managing Director, comments on the win; “this award reinforces our commitment to continued product improvement and demonstrates our willingness to listen to our customers and deliver a quality product that caters to their needs."

Tara Johnston, Program Director of the Australian Business Awards, says the standard of entries for 2011 was a testament to the strength and resilience of the Australian economy. A total of 103 recipients were honoured from the 928 organisations that participated in the 2011 Awards.

“Australian businesses continue to adapt business processes, invest in product development and develop dynamic e-business initiatives that increase productivity and quality standards for all. The Australian Business Awards provide a welcome opportunity for organisations committed to business and product excellence to receive recognition throughout their respective industries for driving positive business outcomes,” says Johnston.
