Magnetic Doorway

Connecting two panels magnetically serves two purposes. Magnet doorways allow you to pass between panels but also help to create logical gathered swags by strategically creating panel breaks for your porch enclosure.

Magnetic doorways are much easier to separate than unsnapping panels from a wall or column. It takes two panels to form a magnetic doorway and they overlap by 1 inch to seal.  Be sure to read about stucco strips that are mini panels enabling you to create magnetic connections to a wall using a mini 3" panelette.

Powerful Neodymium Magnets & Fiberglass Rods

These are NOT ordinary refrigerator magnets. Our rare-earth magnets are freakishly strong and seal doorways. You MUST ORDER enough magnets to space them every 12-18 inches depending upon your wind conditions.

Fiberglass rods insert vertically up into the side bindings to distribute the load on the magnets and complete the seal between magnets. 

For each 8ft tall magnetic door way set up, you'll need:

  • 10-16 magnets and 2 fiberglass rods ordered from the Attachment Items section of the store page.

Sealing Sides with Marine Snaps

Seal to a wall or column is with our stainless steel marine snaps. The female snap is fastened to any top, side, or bottom binding of a curtain panel. The male snap is on a 5/8" inch screw stud which can be screwed into wood surfaces. Some (regular-shaped) columns are perfectly straight and provide a suitable surface to snap to while others are lathed or tapered (irregularly-shaped).

How it Works

The Stucco Strip

Ideally, you don't want to have to unsnap your curtain to draw it open, so you want to think about usability when dividing your project into connecting panels. Think of a stucco strip as a "mini 3-inch wide panel". Why that name?  We don't remember. 

One edge of the 3" Stucco Strip snaps to a structural surface like a wall or column while the other edge is set up for a magnetic connection to a larger panel. The stucco strip stays snapped to the wall, but enables the larger panel to be drawn much easier without having to snap and unsnap your porch enclosure.

For each 8ft tall stucco strip set up, you'll need to order these:

  • Stucco strip when ordering panels
  • 10-16 magnets and 2 fiberglass rods when you order Attachment Items.
