How Do I Quiet Loud Shear Maglocks?

We provide access and video for a customer and they recently relocated their headquarters. The glasswork and maglocks (recessed) were installed by others but the customer wants us to come up with a solution for quieting the maglocks.

Aside from replacing the entire door with a new setup ($10K+), would anyone have suggestions on how to dampen the noise made by the embedded top of frame locks when they engage?
