The Rosedown Plantation was built in 1835 and may be the most recognized plantation in Louisiana.  The caretakers were concerned about UV rays destroying the draperies and furniture so they wanted something that would stop the UV without changing the way the building looked.  Magnetite solved the problem using a “museum grade” acrylic that blocks more than 99% of the harmful UV rays.  Since the panels are easily removable by the staff, the windows can be cleaned and still operate just like they did nearly 200 years ago.
