We reinvented the folding door. Watch the video!
Open either from one side only…or both.
The SMART Patio Door comes in two design configurations: swing door on both sides, or a single swing door on either the left or right end. The remaining panels will slide toward the swing door opening. I.e. if you have a single swing door all the panels will slide to that side. If you have a swing door on both ends, you have some of the panels slide to the right and the others to the left, or you can have all the panels slide to one side only.
How the SMART Door Functions
The Magnaline® System can by used on door configurations of two or more panels. The primary design will have a swing door on one end and a series of panels beside it. Upon opening the swing door a space is created for the next panel over to slide. When the panel slides into place beside the open swing door, the panel itself converts to a swing door. Each panel in turn does the same. This all happens on a single track that supports the full weight of the door from beneath.
The first panel is a swing door. It can be either on the right end, left end, or one on both ends of the door system.
After opening the swing door on the end, the panel next to the opening slides toward the opening and when it slides into position next the the open door the sliding panel converts to a swing panel.
In the same manner, each panel slides to the opening and stack beside the prior providing full use of the opening.
We got rid of the hinges and locks
Unsightly, bulky, cumbersome…are words often used to describe the hardware typically used on folding doors. We got rid of them. The SMART Door has free-floating panels that interlock in a tongue-and-groove fashion to give security without the need of multiple locks. Each panel slide on a bottom track just like traditional slider doors. Because of this, your new SMART Door will not need hinges.
Magnaline – “Most Innovative Hardware” of 2013
Each year, the preeminent magazine in the glass industry (windows, doors, and storefronts) scours the industry looking for the the ‘best-of-the-best’. The winners in each segment of the competition receive a “Glass Award”. In 2013, Magnaline® Systems Hardware was awarded the Glass Magazine Award for the “Most Innovative Hardware”. The Maganaline® Systems Hardware makes it possible to build a folding/stacking door with free floating panels whose weight is fully supported by the bottom track.
