If you are shopping for magnetic storm windows be sure to consider ease of installation, custom fit, and aesthetics. Here’s some information on Indow window inserts compare to magnetic storm windows on these key criteria.
Ease of Installation
Indow inserts just press inside your window frames with no mounting bracket. It’s so easy! Magnetic systems require you to install an ‘L’ shaped metal bracket all the way around your window frames including across your window sill. To mount the ‘L’ brackets you drill multiple holes on each side of your window frame. Indow inserts simply use our patented Compression Tube. You only need two small screws in each frame to mount our safety straps.
We laser measure your window frames to get precise dimensions. We then make your Indow inserts to fit the exact shape of the inside of your window frames. This is essential because almost all window frames are significantly out-of-square. You may run into significant installation issues if you attempt putting rectangular magnetic inserts into out-of-square window frames.
The custom fit means our inserts look great. In fact, they blend in with window frames so well most people do not notice they are there. When you remove a magnetic storm, that metal mounting bracket remains around the window frame. When you remove an Indow insert, your windows are completely intact. We show off our product with lots of photos, videos, and great customer stories, because we are proud of the way our inserts look in thousands of beautiful homes across America. A nationally acclaimed architect who restores Frank Lloyd Wright homes chose Indow inserts for his own Frank Lloyd Wright home because he preferred the look of Indow window inserts.
Indow inserts have the lightest touch, both structurally and aesthetically of any window insulation solution. They are so easy to install and remove, you’ll feel great about the comfort, quiet and savings you gain.
