It’s that time again. Panoramic Doors is on the way to Las Vegas for this years International Builders Show. Over the past two years the interest and popularity of the Panoramic Door with Magnaline™ System Hardware (by the same designer as the Panoramic Door) has been going through the roof.

With three awards in just the past two years from industry leading publications, it is clear that the Panoramic Door really is an great leap in innovation in the “folding-door” and “wide-opening patio door” segment. In 2013 Glass magazine recognized the Magnaline™ System Hardware with the Glass Award for 2013 “Most Innovative Hardware”. The in 2014, Window & Door Magazine awarded the Magnaline™ Systems with the Crystal Award for 2014 “Most Innovative Door Component” and Panoramic Doors with the 2014 “Most Innovative Door”.

To see for yourself what separates Panoramic Doors with the Magnaline™ System Hardware from every other door on the market today, visit our booth and try out our doors for yourself.

Panoramic Doors developed Magnaline™, a patent pending hardware system engineered to simplify and improve the operation and performance of its folding glass doors. Panoramic’s folding glass door systems consist of independent panels that sit and travel along a single track to either end of the opening; Magnaline™ then engages, allowing the panel to swing open and stack to the previous panel. The doors are bottom-rolling, which minimizes the weight on the header, structural costs and operational problems, according to the company.

All of the Magnaline™ operational hardware is concealed within the frame, giving the folding door system elegant clean lines; the floating panels are the only elements visible. By reducing the amount of hardware through the advent of the Magnaline™ system, Panoramic Doors was able to cut down door system manufacturing costs and lead times, the company says.[/fusion_modal]

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Challenge: Panoramic Doors sought a way to create a budget-friendly folding door system.

The Winning Solution: The resulting folding door system uses Panoramic’s Magnaline™ hardware (a winner in this year’s Most Innovative Door Component category) that “eliminates the need for hinges, bolts and locks, which in turn, reduces hardware costs and man-hours. The end result is a more affordable system,” says Magnaline designer Alan Rees, CEO and owner of Magnaline and Panoramic Doors.

The Panoramic Doors folding system has a series of bottom-track supported rolling panels that travel independently from each other along a single track. This minimizes weight stress on headers. The first panel is a fixed door and can be on either side of the opening or on both sides. Independent panels slide to either end, click into place and then convert from sliding to swing panels and stack against the previous panels, which reduces the amount of space needed to operate the door.

Several options are available, including a system with an unlimited number of panels to fit any span, as well as a system that offers users the ability to open and close one panel at a time. Doors come in aluminum/aluminum, aluminum/wood-clad, woodclad/ wood-clad, vinyl/aluminum-clad and vinyl/wood-clad. The PVC model is a fully welded outer-frame with the option of nail-fin or flush-fin to satisfy track building demands and facilitate replacement.

The Challenge: Panoramic Doors wanted to make it easier for users to operate folding doors while at the same time reducing the manufacturing costs for those doors. “The greatest obstacle to producing an affordable wide-span door system was the high cost associated with the excessive hardware,” says Alan Rees, designer and CEO of Magnaline.

The Winning Solution: The supplier developed Magnaline, multi-panel door hardware that uses magnetic technology to guide, control and lock into place each panel as it slides and swings open. “By using magnetic technology, I was able to control and simplify functionality,” Rees explains.

The door system works this way: The first panel is fixed on either side (or both sides) of the opening. Second and subsequent panels slide up to the first panel, and then click into place. Each panel then swings open and stacks parallel to the previous panel. Magnaline hardware allows panels to travel and operate on the bottom track, minimizing stress on the header.

All operational hardware is concealed and works from within the frame to give the system a clean look and protect the hardware from the weather. Concealment also helps protect users from possible injury.

Using Magnaline, Rees says, considerably reduces the amount of hardware which lowers manufacturing cost and lead times.

“The result is a system with unique features and clean lines that is functional, easy to operate and affordable. It has completely exceeded my expectations,” Rees says.
